    More likely they're looking for information they couldn't otherwise get...

    They've been peppering the internet with fake information for several decades now. One has to wonder how many of the anti-Trump posts on here were written by Russian trolls or "Correct The Record" Democratic operatives being funded by Russian money.

    Why the need to cut these cables when apparently the Russians are all knowing hackers of all things in all places? Wouldn't cutting these cables only slow down their own access to global information?
