(This is just a reminder as drumpf and his talk radio and Faux News enablers continue to lie about what we know about the hacking.)
In 2014 the Dutch Intelligence Agency AIVD hacked Cozy Bear’s HQ in a building at a Moscow University near the Red Square. They spied on the Russian Hackers long enough help to thwart an attack on the State Department in 2015 and lessen the damage of another attack that same year on the White House. They watched, in real time, as Cozy Bear hacked into the DNC server and stole the e-mails drumpf used to bolster his campaign.
Thet even had cameras into Cozy Bears lair and were able to i.d. some of the personnel involved. Their co-operation also helped the FBI to ascertain, despite the protestations of drumpf, Julian Assange and Sean Hannity, with “certainty” that Russian Government officials were aware of the hacks.

“It's the summer of 2014. A hacker from the Dutch intelligence agency AIVD has penetrated the computer network of a university building next to the Red Square in Moscow, oblivious to the implications. One year later, from the AIVD headquarters in Zoetermeer, he and his colleagues witness Russian hackers launching an attack on the Democratic Party in the United States. The AIVD hackers had not infiltrated just any building; they were in the computer network of the infamous Russian hacker group Cozy Bear. And unbeknownst to the Russians, they could see everything.That's how the AIVD becomes witness to the Russian hackers harassing and penetrating the leaders of the Democratic Party, transferring thousands of emails and documents. It won't be the last time they alert their American counterparts. And yet, it will be months before the United States realize what this warning means: that with these hacks the Russians have interfered with the American elections. And the AIVD hackers have seen it happening before their very eyes.
The Dutch access provides crucial evidence of the Russian involvement in the hacking of the Democratic Party, according to six American and Dutch sources who are familiar with the material, but wish to remain anonymous. It's also grounds for the FBI to start an investigation into the influence of the Russian interference on the election race between the Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and the Republican candidate Donald Trump.”
Unfortunately, because the undoubted (to me) culpability of Donald Trump and clan in the eager manipulation of the hacked material for their own political gain, and their determination to keep this information from the people, the IC Community here in the states has had to resort to using selective leaks of this intel to alert the American public to the Russian attack.
This has angered the Dutch who depended on our discretion.
AIVD no longer has access to surveillance of the Bad News Bears, which is why this is being reported now.
