Oops. Guccifer 2.0, who's responsible for hacking the DNC and releasing their emails to Wikileaks, screwed up and revealed that he's a Russian Intelligence officer: https://www.thedailybeast.com/exclusive-lone-dnc-hacker-guccifer-20-slipped-up-and-revealed-he-was-a-russian-intelligence-officer
this feels a LOT closer to the kind of evidence that will shut up the "it's a conspiracy, it can't be possible" talk
this part, holy:
> “Working off the IP address, U.S. investigators identified Guccifer 2.0 as a particular GRU officer working out of the agency’s headquarters on Grizodubovoy Street in Moscow.”
some will move the goalposts ("how do we know the obviously Russian orchestrated efforts WORKED tho") but more evidence is more evidence, good
(plus, even the ones who claim it couldn't have worked are eventually going to have to figure out how to believe that the United States government's conspired to fabricate a huge conspiracy's worth of evidence that this was Russian in origin, but that somehow the Russian government couldn't have bot-fabricated tons of fake people online and used laser guided propaganda to commit election interference)
