U.S. charges Russian military hackers

"A story for you. May Two thousand seventeen voters in France went to the polls to elect a new French president just like in our election the before then Russian intelligence agencies in the Russian government played hard in the French election that year russian-owned websites pushing outlandish rumours about the centrist candidate Emmanuel macron. Those rumors were then processed into pieces Russian state media outlets. macron's rival was a far right candidate named Marine Le Pen she had inherited from her Holocaust denying Father Control of Francis Post. World War Two Fascist Party. So it was the neo-fascist party running against macron. Lapenne far-right neo-fascist campaign was explicitly bankrolled by a Russian state controlled bank. Marine Le Pen went to Moscow and met with Vladimir Putin at the Kremlin during the campaign. This was not subtle. But it was. Too much for Russia to pass up a divisive racist far right fascist candidate injecting chaos into the elections in a major. European. Democracy in twenty seventeen that's like catnip to Russia. Right? They want to undermine democracy everywhere. They will undermine Western countries in general however they can. But Russia's saved its boldest move for the eve of that French. Just two days before the vote. Russian. Hackers part of the same Russian military unit that had disseminated hacked democratic emails during the twenty, sixteen American election the before. They dumped tens of thousands of files, online, nine gigabytes of stolen emails and other information all hacked from Emmanuel Macron's campaign, and that might have become the dominant news story of the final weekend of that campaign. Before French voters went to the polls. It might have actually ended up upending that election if it were not for a quirk of French law, which imposes a media blackout on anything relating to the campaign for full day before voting starts all the way through until polls close on election day. That blackout period in French law precedes this whole scandal with Russia messing with the French election. But it ended up saving the day. The material that was hacked by Russian intelligence got posted online and France just hours before media blackout period began just minutes before the blackout began at midnight that night the macron campaign issued a statement warning that the hackers had inserted forged fake documents into the hack stolen material they pleaded with the media to not report on that junk. And the media didn't. They stuck to the rules. And in the end, Emmanuel macron beat the far-right neo-fascist Marine Le Pen by more than thirty points. And there's a couple of reasons for us be thinking about sort of relearning the story of that. Two thousand seventeen French election right now one is that the intelligence community is raising the alarm that Russian intelligence is executing an operation just like the one they did in France on us right now the supposedly Biden scandal that Rudy Giuliani has been shopping the scandal he. Managed to get printed in the New York Post which president trump has been gleefully promoting ever since including posing with a copy of that paper in the Oval Office that junk that Giuliani has been promoting is being actively investigated by federal investigators as potentially part of a hostile foreign influence operation illegally targeting our election and the intelligence community is investigating this Johnny on the spot. In part because they saw this coming in advance, this is in the New York Times last week quote, The Times reported last January the Ukrainian company were Hunter Biden was once on the Board respond had been hacked by the same Russian Intelligence Unit that hacked the Democratic National Committee in two thousand, sixteen last month US intelligence analysts contracted several people with knowledge of that hack. Asking them for further information because they picked up chatter that stolen burris, my emails would be leaked in the form of an October surprise among their chief concerns was that the burris material would be leaked alongside forged materials and it it's to hurt Biden's candidacy as Russian. Hackers did when they dumped real e mails alongside forgeries ahead of the French elections in two thousand seventeen. So that's what they did to Macron in two, thousand, seventeen they hacked all install all of this stuff from his campaign than they mixed it up with Ford stuffing dumped it right before the election. That's what the US intelligence community said. They believed was going to happen with Barista and sort of October surprise firm Rudy Giuliani. Thank right on time Rudy Giuliani shows up some emails from a mysterious source that are totally unverified and unverified able and only one Rupert Murdoch owned right wing tabloid will air that junk. Put it in their paper. So. That's one reason. The Russian operation in the two thousand, seventeen French election newly relevant to our lives right now, the Russians may be trying that exact same trick all over again except we don't have media blackout rules. The other reason that that two thousand seventeen Russian operation in France is newly relevant. Is that the guys who did it just got indicted by the US Justice Department today? Here they are the Russian military intelligence hackers who carried out that operation to interfere in the French election in two thousand seventeen the Justice Department says in the indictment today that these guys also launched major malware and hacking operations that shut down the power grid in Ukraine that hit the parliament in the nation of Georgia that chemical weapons investigators in the UK and Europe who were looking into the Russian poisoning of former Russian spy, Sergei scruple who was poisoned with a Russian nerve agent on British territory they say, they also orchestrated hacks that hit hospitals in companies. In the United States. They also organize tax that hit the two thousand eighteen winter Olympics quite a list. And? Although. One of the Russian hacker that was indicted today was previously indicted by Robert Muller in two thousand eighteen for his role in the hacking operation against the twenty sixteen election here in the US, today's indictment of these Russian hackers doesn't include any charges related to American election interference this year. That said the election. The American election is two weeks from tomorrow. It's hard to look today's indictment without trying to understand how it relates to our own election and what the Justice Department is trying to signal here. Is that the right way to look at this. Joining us now is Jeremy Bash. He served as chief of staff at the CIA and at the Defense Department under President Obama Jeremy Nice to see. Thanks for making time. It, Rachel. So, this is a lot. Going on the surprise announcement today from the Justice Department about the indictment of these Russian hackers when you look at this with your background in intelligence and your understanding of what Russia has done to target our democracy and others. What do you think is most important here for people to understand. Well I think was most important is that the GRU this Russian military organization that was responsible for the two thousand Sixteen Hacking Dump Operation Against the Democrats that was responsible for the two thousand seventeen election appearance in France as you noted, and is responsible for these militias cyber attacks globally including, against us, hospitals and. They are very active. They're very capable and they are in fact probably behind this this Russian. Intelligence operation at least a looks and appears to be Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign. Last. Week Andrew Weisman, who is part of the Miller investigation wrote in Law Fair about the decision that was made by bill bar earlier this year this spring to drop criminal charges against Russian companies that had participated in the attack on our election in two thousand sixteen and that didn't actually get a lot of attention when it happened in March I think in part because the country was overwhelmed by what was starting to happen to us in terms of covid why spent makes the case that before may have acted essentially improperly in dismissing those charges essentially signaling to Russia that the. US Criminal Law wouldn't be used against them as a tool if they wanted to interfere in the election this year I'm wondering if this might be a signal in the other direction, if this might be some sort of signal to brushback rush intelligence ahead of what appears to be their ongoing efforts to boost trump in his reelection effort. Hartono, racial. But what we do know is that there are mixed signals being sent by the US government here. Today we have the Justice Department indicting Russian hackers, but you've got the president of the United States welcoming condoning what looks apparently like a Russian intelligence operation targeting the Biden campaign remember Rachel that Rudy Giuliani. In Kiev, with Andrei Dirk Catch Ukrainian lawmaker who has been assessed by US intelligence and announced by our Treasury Department to be a Russian asset for the last decade. Giuliani goes to Kiev meets with Dir cash and he comes back and low these many months later, Giuliani surfaces up with these a very mysterious emails. So every Intelligence Professional Rachel that I've talked to the last twenty four hours says that this walks like a Russian intelligence disinformation campaign this talks like a Russian intelligence to information campaign. This is most likely Russian intelligence is permission campaign against the Biden team.

"You've been looking for the end of the Mahler investigation. For you. One of his top team members. Andrew weisman. Is reportedly stepping down soon lead the office and the Justice department to anonymous sources close to the matter this morning, tell NPR Andrew Weisman. They do they refer to as the architect of the case against former Trump campaign chairman, Paul Manafort will study and teach at NYU and work on a variety of public service projects. So he is getting ready to leave. There is not a timeframe in this article from NPR, but Weisman is is leaving the special counsel investigation. So this is deeply suggestive that this thing is coming to a close. Yeah. Andrew Weissmann should never been on the investigation to begin with Hilary donor. Should. Yeah. They're all Hillary donors. Everything's there's not one Republican on his on his team. They're all Democrats all wasn't Andrew Weisman. The one at the Hillary campaign supposed to be the victory party wasn't. He the one who is at the party. I think he was was Weisman at the victory. I think he was the one who was at the victory party, which turned into a very sad sets there. But I believe he was the one who was it was at the victory parties shouldn't had no business being on that panel being on the investigative panel. It never would have happened. If Hillary had won they were investigating her never would have been all Republicans never would've been all Trump to Wall Street Journal had reported that Muller investigator, Andrew Weissmann did attend Hillary Clinton's election. I see. Hi, it's not on early onset. Alzheimer's, see I remembered that. It's eight twenty eight.

They're gonna wind advisory in effect for much of LA county until Saturday gonna make for a sunny windy day today with highs in the sixties to low seventies. It's five O seven. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Steve Inskeep. In Washington DC. And I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. Good morning NPR has learned new information suggesting that the special counsels. Russia investigation is done a key. Prosecutor Andrew Weisman is leaving the office. He helped build the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort Manafort was sentenced yesterday to serve seven and a half years in prison now with us to walk. Through her exclusive reporting here is NPR national Justice. Correspondent Carrie Johnson. Good morning Kerry. Good morning, David. So let's start with what you've learned about Robert Muller's legal team. This long process might be coming to an end here. Sounds like. Yeah. Nearly two years long. It's the strongest sign yet special counsel is done investigating. It's a prominent lawyer on the team Andrew Weisman is leaving the special counsel unit. And the Justice department to sources are telling me Weisman's leaving to go teach and do some scholarship at New York University. They say he wouldn't be leaving unless the Russia investigation was complete. I'm hearing also to expect more signs of wrapping up in the next two weeks. Maximum remember, David, though, lead FBI agent assigned to this probe started a new job in Virginia this month and other lawyers have been moving off the team to but intra Weisman was in some ways aside from Robert Muller, the most well known he's been attacked by conservative talk radio host. And he was called a killer by Steve Bannon. One of Trump's former advisers who also called him the LeBron James of money. Laundering investigations the thinking being that. I mean once the the important work is done. You're you're gonna let your investigators move on. Even if you're putting the finishing touches on the reporter whatever's happening, that's exactly right and more seeing more high level departures by the day. So the prosecutor you're talking about Andrew Weissmann really played a central role in the case against Paul Manafort, and we're seeing a lot of news in that case over the past twenty four hours with the sentencing what exactly is happening and even last week. The judge in Virginia basically said Paul Manafort had lead in otherwise blameless life aside from his financial crimes yesterday. The judge in Washington DC, Amy Berman Jackson had a lot more criticism for Paul Manafort. She sentenced him to serve almost four years in prison at of the time man forgotten Virginia last week it totals after about seven and a half years in prison. Total the DC judge. Amy Jackson was not buying Paul manafort's remorse. She basically said he used other people's money to support his own lifestyle. Too many houses for one family to enjoy. Too many suits for one man to wear. She also said Manafort spent his whole life spinning he treated treated the legal process. The same way she said courts are one place where facts still matter and she said saying, I'm sorry, I got caught is not an effective plea from leniency very tough language from this DC judge tough language. Indeed. I mean, we should say the first federal prison term Manafort was given a lot of people criticized it for not being long enough different reaction to this one. You know, it's been next some former prosecutors say in all seven and a half year seems about right for Paul Manafort, some Democrats on Capitol Hill were saying it was too lenient. And of course, Paul manafort's allies are continuing to say, and he never should have been prosecuted in the first place for some of this. And he would not have been prosecuted if not for his work with President Trump on the two thousand sixteen campaign, what about the idea of a presidential pardon Carrie Johnson. I mean that seems to be looming over a case like this isn't isn't that possibility why prosecutors in New York of move to bring their own charges. Against metaphor. Indeed, Paul manafort's lawyer Kevin downing told people outside the courthouse yesterday. There was no collusion, which the judge had explicitly said was not one of her findings. The judge suggested that Paul manafort's lured downing was actually speaking to another audience and President Trump shortly after the sentencing said, he feels very badly for Paul Manafort. He said he hasn't given pardon for Manafort any thought, but clearly state prosecutors the Manhattan District Attorney Sivan's has that's why he slapped Paul Manafort with sixteen charges only if and only an hour or so after this federal sensing concluded and the key point there, David is that president cannot pardon someone on state charges only federal charges and just coming back, full circle. Kerry, we might not know exactly if the special counsel investigation is over will there be a clear end moment that we the public will know or or maybe not at some point the attorney general of the United States Bill bars going to have to come out and make a statement about this. Okay. So we'll learn something. Exclusive reporting this morning from NPR's Carrie Johnson. We appreciate Kerry. My pleasure. People who survived life under ISIS are offering details of an attempted genocide when ISIS controlled much of Syria and Iraq, it targeted a religious minority known as UCD's those who were not simply killed are. Now recounting what they endured children were trained as ISIS fighters and women were held a sex slaves for years. They shared their stories with NPR's, Jane Arraf. Madison arrived home from captivity last week to crowds chanting his name. He's only thirteen and part of the Smalley ZD community. Isis tried to wipe out. The video is circulated on Facebook, each person rescued is a treasure. Three days later. I met him in the Kurdistan region of Iraq in a camp for UCD's displaced from their home region of singer Nelson sits in attempt dressed in a grey hoodie. He's huge is in a face. Still got from not getting enough to eat he survived gunfire and airstrikes Nazon was kidnapped when he was eight and he's forgotten a lot of the ZD language. Instead, he speaks to me in Arabic language of his captors. We're using only the first names of the free dizzy dis shell why Donald finisher. I ask Madison how he feels. And he says he doesn't know shell. But he knows what. Isis taught him. I'll Omonia I'd ask they taught me weapons in the Koran belief and things like that what kind of weapons collection calls be Casey light weapons. He says there were supposed to use them to kill. You. ZD's beta audit committee. Boy, but he speaks like he's used to being listened to ISIS taught him how to drive and he's demanding a car, so he can take his mother and brother back to their village. But their home is destroyed, and they have no money. He's starting to few words of English for one of the foreign ISIS fighters hunky, you thank you as its father is still missing the family is desperately poor. But matzahs Oncle Hussein says, they'll try to help them be a normal. Boy again dodge any by insanity. You can't change someone who has been captive in just three days. Our goal is. We will take him on picnics. We will take him to weddings. We will make him forget, the Arabic language. While we talk is eating man comes into show him photos of other children still missing Maslin has already told relatives of two other children. He was held with that they were killed in US led airstrikes recently. The town of beggars math homeowner Dina, flips through the photos and patiently. He says he hasn't seen them. In a cafe a few miles away. I talked to the man with the photos. He's ISA shower d from the village of cujo the site of one of the worst massacres under ISIS men were rounded up and shot the younger women kidnapped as sex slaves almost three thousand UCD's are still missing Schwartz photos or faded. They're five years old, and it would be hard to recognize the children. Now, he tells me their names of Halla. Helena, Sada of Racan include his nephews and nieces and cousins. Some they know we're dead, but he's holding out hope for the three youngest. What? There were many children who were so young when they took them. They don't know who they are anymore. We are sure there are many of our people in the camps in Syria. We ask the government to help us find them. But the government hasn't been helping to find them that's been left mostly to smugglers is e DS and others who have rescued women children are paid ransoms by the back. One of Schwartz's photos is a twenty five year old woman held with their children in Deir ez-zor in Syria. Relatives were close to buying their freedom for thirty thousand dollars before a US backed forces targeted ISIS, their local the model, Nina beenish murder. Of this then they attacked Deir ez-zor. And now they're missing no one knows where they are. There were many air strikes and many people died. In the nearby city of dough hook I mean, Ali Hussein AZT negotiated with ISIS to buy back about forty women and children Hussein is a schoolteacher who was once held by ISIS and maintain contact with ISIS fighters. He plays me messages. He received about an eleven year old girl about a year ago. Isis contact tells them the little girl was sold to an Amir of an al-qaeda -ffiliated in Syria. Egypt had Nasra that she's no longer a virgin. I told you forty five thousand dollars from the beginning. I know what they pay in Raka. I told you Turkey they would pay sixty thousand or seventy thousand and take out the girls organs. But I don't wanna do that the ISIS contact continues as if she's a used car for sale. Dear Mr. Ali think about this matter and let me know by evening, if you don't want her Hussein in the girl's family weren't able to raise that much money. She disappeared with others. He's been more successful. Why the? That's Joe lean who's ten telling them a few days ago that she had been freed and would come back from Syria when the border was opened she's with a fourteen year old friend who had been sold among Iraqi Syrian sodium Tunisian fighters since she was ten sane says ISIS as it was reduced to its last shred of territory start selling Z's to keep them as hostages. He believes a few hundred of the thousand still missing will be found in Syria. And how many have been taken to Turkey many have been killed in airstrikes in Raka and Mosul and many are still hidden with ISIS families in Iraq.

Maximum remember, David, though, lead FBI agent assigned to this probe started a new job in Virginia this month and other lawyers have been moving off the team to but inter Weisman was in some ways aside from Robert Muller. The most well-known he's been attacked by conservative talk radio host. And he was called a killer by Steve Bannon. One of Trump's former advisers who also called him the LeBron James of money laundering investigations the thinking being that. I mean once the the the important work is done. You're you're gonna let your investigators move on. Even if you're putting the finishing touches on reporter whatever's happening. That's exactly right. And we're seeing more high level departures by the day. So the prosecutor you're talking about Andrew Weissmann really played a central role in the case against Paul Manafort, and we're seeing a lot of news in that case over the past twenty four hours with the sentencing. What exactly is happening? He even last week. The judge in Virginia basically said Paul Manafort land in otherwise blameless life aside from his financial crimes. Yesterday. The judge in Washington DC, Amy Berman Jackson had lot more criticism for Paul Manafort. She sentenced him to serve almost four years in prison at the time man forgotten Virginia last week it totals after about seven and a half years in prison. Total the DC judge. Amy Jackson was not buying Paul manafort's remorse. She basically said he used other people's money to support his own lifestyle. Too many houses for one family to enjoy too many suits for one man to wear. She also said Manafort spent his whole life spinning he treated treated the legal process. The same way she said courts are one place where facts still matter and she said saying, I'm sorry, I got caught is not an effective plea for leniency very tough language from this DC judge tough language. Indeed. I mean, we should say the first federal prison term Manafort was given a lot of people criticize different upping long enough different reaction to this one. You know, it's been next some former prosecutors say in all seven and a half years seems about. All right for Paul Manafort, some Democrats on Capitol Hill were saying it was too lenient. And of course, Paul manafort's allies are continuing to say, and he never should have been prosecuted in the first place for some of this. And he would not have been prosecuted if not for his work with President Trump on the two thousand sixteen campaign. What about the idea of a presidential pardon Carrie Johnson? I mean that seems to be looming over a case like this isn't isn't that possibility? Why prosecutors in New York have moved to bring their own charges against metaphor. Indeed, Paul manafort's lawyer Kevin downing told people outside the courthouse yesterday. There was no collusion, which the judge had explicitly said was not one of her findings. The judge suggested that Paul manafort's lured downing was actually speaking to another audience and President Trump shortly after the sentencing said, he feels very badly for Paul Manafort. He said he hasn't given a pardon for Manafort any thought, but clearly state prosecutors Manhattan District Attorney Sivan's has that's why he slapped Paul Manafort with sixteen charges only. If only an hour or so after this federal sensing concluded. And David is that I've I'm president cannot pardon someone on state charges only federal charges and just coming back full circle. Kerry, we might not know exactly if the special counsel investigation is over will there be a clear end moment that we the public will know or or maybe not at some point the attorney general of the United States Bill bar is going to have to come out and make a statement about this. Okay. So we'll learn something exclusive reporting this morning from NPR's Carrie Johnson. We appreciate Kerry. My pleasure..
