U.S. Commerce Department confirms security "breach"
"Thank you. And tonight, security experts are scrambling to assess the damage after hackers breach sensitive government and corporate computer systems. The intrusion went undetected for months. We get more from Sirius is Catherine Herridge. CBS News has learned. The breach is so large investigators aren't sure yet how many government agencies may have been compromised. Preliminary evidence points to Vladimir Putin's government is being behind the attack. Does this hack have the signature of Russian intelligence? This definitely looks like the Russians. It was skillful. It was targeted. It was advanced. The cyber espionage campaign breached secure networks at the Treasury and commerce departments and possibly Homeland security as part of a month long effort to infiltrate US agencies and private businesses. The hackers exploited solar winds, a software program used to monitor computer networks, potentially affecting 18,000 companies and government agencies. This March, Hackers latched onto a security update to burrow in Chris Crabs fired last month as the head of the government Cyber Security Agency called it AH, pretty large scale hack. What makes this cyber attack stand out is the breath and the depth depth of the attack, which means that they could get into their email. They could see the type of data that those individuals had access to the hackers are said to be the Russian affiliated group known as Cozy Bear. Which stands accused of breaching Democratic Party computer data in attacks tied to the 2016 election and more recently trying to steal Cove in 19 vaccine research. What does the U. S government need to Diogo? To deter Russia. We're going to need to push back a lot harder, and that probably means some kind of cyber warfare. Tonight. Government officials tell CBS News the Defense Department is evaluating the impact on its networks and cyber command could soon issue in order to

"putin government" Discussed on The 11th Hour with Brian Williams
"The soviet union and that we remember when we were young and russia for starters well i pr- i just want to express my condolences to the russian families. We lost their loved ones in this accident. This is a tragedy for them. First and foremost it's an unnecessary tragedy in my mind because it doesn't make much sense in my view you have nuclear powered cruise missiles now the differences the soviets did not have that weapon so that's one difference the second differences we have more information. We have more data collection than during chernobyl and obviously this is a much smaller tragedy but it is a tragedy. It's a scary tragedy and it raises concerns about what is motivating putin to develop these kinds of weapons which i think make no sense when you heard the reporting though today that people we're taking iodine tablets in the region people around where this happen when you see some of the photos of tourists with a cloud a smoke calvo column behind them. It's incredibly eerie. All of i agree and this government vladimir putin's putin's government is not good about telling the truth and i would remind all those people binging on chernobyl that was part of what unraveled the soviet union and the secrecy secrecy around that that's when mikhail gorbachev decided we have to go in a different way and i would also remind your viewers that this is not the first tragedy that russia has pat under vladimir putin just last month. There was a nuclear powered submarine that that that went under i think fourteen people were dead and the lack could reporting about it is what you have in autocratic regimes and people don't like that when they live in those regimes they want to know what is going on especially when it could affect their individual health and i know this caught your eye today as it did hours <hes> this is a poll showing forty four percent of young russians defined as ages fifteen to twenty nine would like to move permanently to another country first of all. What's your confidence. Is this gallup world poll june to october twentieth eighteen. What's your confidence in methodology. What's your confidence that real life backs up that kind of a number well. I'm presuming. I don't know the facts but i'm presuming gala pass to partner with a polling agency in russia many of which almost all but one in fact have a relationship relationship with the government so the actual data may even be more shocking but brian think about how incredible those numbers are what does that say about about mr putin's legitimacy. What does it say about his popular support. We're always hearing that he's so popular. Those numbers don't suggest that he is popular among the youth and i would also like to point out that you just we just witnessed the largest demonstrations against vladimir putin since two thousand twelve over the weekend fifty thousand thousand people came out and moscow to protest their desire for free and fair elections local elections. Most of those people were young muscovites not a good good sign for ladimir putin. This is why we have you of counsel to us and why we'll have you back in short order on the broadcast mike mcfaul ambassador. Thank you very much for coming on as always he's on coming up for us.

"Weekend. In moscow tens of thousands of people took to the streets on a rainy day for the biggest protest rally that city has seen in years ears an independent group that tracks demonstrations count of as many as sixty thousand people at a march through moscow city centre. It took bravery to be their russian police have been arresting hundreds and hundreds of people at these demonstrations in recent weeks and they have been meeting people in the streets but people turned out this weekend they chanted russia will be free. Russia will be free the last time they were protests. This large against the putin government was back in two thousand eleven. When people marched through the kremlin protests parliamentary elections that were widely perceived as rigged in favour of putin's political party putin was russia's prime minister at the time soon to become president again during and after those big demonstrations in two thousand eleven putin blamed the united states for those protests specifically typically he blamed then secretary of state hillary clinton he alleged that she somehow convened those demonstrations and organized those demonstrations herself when she spoke out about the evidence of those parliamentary elections being rigged and when she called for a full investigation into it well now the protests are back at that size again and this weekend's protests was the fifth consecutive weekend rally in moscow russian protesters are furious basically over putin rigging the next election to which is coming up september eighth. Essentially the way that one's being rigged is that opposition leaders are being banned from even being allowed to run one so it won't be a real contest but like i said it takes bravery to demonstrate in moscow even this weekend with tens of thousands of people out the largest protest in years russian police are caught on camera punching people beating people with nightsticks dragging people off once again there were hundreds of arrests as for the president's whereabouts during saturday's protest he was on a motorcycle ride in crimea sure why not that sam look. He's got sidecar. Neither putin or the kremlin have commented directly on these weekend. Rallies putin appears to be pretending they didn't happen so far. They're not blaming this iteration of protests in moscow..

"By the name of Matt tabby. I understand he's quite liberal. But he's also been quite sober. When it comes to this so-called, Russia, collusion stuff. I know Rolling Stone. Pretty amazing. And the title of the piece the other day, the press will learn nothing from the Russia gate fiasco. The inability to face the enormity of the last few years of heiress will cost the news media. It's credibility even with blue state audiences. I can't read the whole thing. But I do want to read some of it to you. Says you know, what was fake news most of the Russia gate story. There was no Trump Russia conspiracy. That thing we just spent three years chasing. The mullahs report is crystal clear on this. He didn't just failed to establish evidence of crime is report is full of incredibly damning passages like one about Russian official efforts to reach the Trump campaign after the election, quote, they appeared not to have pre existing context and struggle to connect with the senior officials around the president-elect unquote, not only was there. No collusion. The two camps. Didn't even have each other's phone numbers. In March of two thousand seventeen in one of the first of what would become a mountain a mafia hierarchy style. Trump Russia, context graphics and major newspapers the Washington Post described an Email Trump lawyer Michael Cohen sent to the Kremlin press secretary Dmitry peskov they called it quote. The most direct interaction yet of a top Trump eight and a senior member of Putin's government. The report shows the whole episode was a joke. In order to further the Trump Tower project that never was Cohen, literally cold emailed, the Kremlin more than that. He entered the Email incorrectly. So the letter initially didn't even arrive when he finally fixed the mistake peskov didn't answer back that was the most direct interaction yet of a top Trump aide and a senior member of Putin's government, quote, unquote. As outlined in his initial mandate Muller explored any links between the Russian government and the campaign of Donald Trump. His conclusion spoke directly to the question of whether there was any kind of quid pro quo between the two sides. It says quote, the investigation examined whether these contacts involved resulted in coordination or it conspiracy with the Trump campaign and Russia, including with respect to Russia, providing assistance to the campaign in exchange for any sort of favorable treatment in the future. In other words, all those fancy org charts were meaningless because there was no conspiracy. All those walls are closing in reports are or there and there were a ton of them were wrong. We were told we'd hit turning point after turning point leading to the beginning of the end, what Trump's certain soon to either resign and shame Nixon style or to be impeached. The RNC platform chain story was a Canard according to Muller the exchanges. Trump figures had with embassador surge kisla cuff work, quote, brief public and non-substantive of quote the conversation. Jeff Sessions have with Klis Kislyak the at the convention didn't quote include any more than a passing mention to the presidential campaign. Unquote. Muller added, quote, investigators did not establish the Carter page conspired with the Russian government, unquote. There was no blackmail. No secret bribe from those enough no five five-year cultivation plan. No evidence of any kind of any relationship that ever existed between the Trump campaign and Russia officials and Michael Cohen never traveled to Prague the whole steel dosage appears to have been bunk with even Bob Woodward now saying the highly questionable document needs to be investigated. The time similarly is reporting two plus years late that would be the New York Times that people familiar with steals work began to have misgivings about the reports reliability arose not long after the document became public. Reporters are going to insist all they did was accurately report the developments of a real investigation. And you heard Jeff Zucker say that the head of CNN. They didn't imply vast criminality that wasn't there or hoodwink audiences into thinking a Watergate style ending was just around the corner a routinely blow meaningless episodes like the sessions Kislyak meeting at a proportion or regularly smear people who not only weren't part of a conspiracy. But had no connection to anything. The law claim they didn't spend years openly rooting for indictment and a peach mint the wish casted predictions disguised as reporting and commentary or denouncing people who doubted that conspiracy as spies Putin apologists are clearing, their broadcast panels and op Ed pages of skeptics while giving big stages to craving conspiracy spinners like, Malcolm Nance, and Luke Harding. That's fine. In the short term, a significant portion of the country will probably agree coverage was appropriate. Probably the same sizable plurality of poll respondents who say they disagree on some level with Muller's findings a lot of people out there despise Trump. And at least right now, we'll be inclined to sympathy for broadcasters and aditorial who gave full quarter to the most damning theories of conspiracy and criminality in the Russian case. That is conservatives found in two thousand sixteen news audience over time lose trust in news organizations that tell them what they want to hear politically but get the substance of things wrong. He's talking about like, the weekly standard that doesn't exist and so forth not anymore. The mother report makes clear reporters were sold wolf whistles over and over led by reams of unnamed officials. Unofficial sources who urged them to see meaning in meaningless things and assume connections that weren't there. Reporters should be furious about being fed these red herrings, right? Mr. Philip bump, they should be outraged at all those people who urge them the publish the steel report, which might have led to a career in parolling mistake in print. They should be mad as hell at CIA chief Gina has bell and the other unnamed officials who told them disclosing the name of already long ago exposed government informants. Stephan heart helper would risk lives. More than anything. It should be furious at the many sources close to the various investigations who it now seems clear must have known pretty early. There were serious holes in many areas of this story, and that a lot of these dots were dead ends. But didn't warn their press counterparts, for instance, that paper should be mad those who supposedly at misgivings about the still report didn't warn them earlier. But they're not mad. They're not mad which makes it look like a case of intentional blindness. Which is in ears were shut among other things because the Trump Russian conspiracy till made a ton of money media companies earned both ratings while the Muller probe still carry the drama of a potential spectacular ending with blue state audiences evening. Eating up all those walls are closing in hot takes. This go well surely end up being a net plus for Trump the obstruction parts of the report make him look like a brainless Gounon thug, and I strongly disagree with that. But this is a liberal writer, but the absence of what Muller repeatedly calls underlying crime make his ravings about it elitist mob out to get him look justified. This is not an easy thing to achieve, but we we're there and the press is a big part of that picture. News audiences were betrayed and sooner or later, even the most currently Trump despising demographics will realize it and tune us out. The only way to reverse the damage is to own how big a screw up. This was. But after the last three years who would hold their breath waiting for that. Here and there, ladies and gentlemen, there are leftists in the media warning their colleagues. And yet. They're going further. They're pushing this obstruction of Justice Canard. They're pushing impeachment. MSNBC CNN. Unfortunately, some individuals on FOX. New York Times, Washington posts, the usual suspects. Rather than any circumspection rather than say. Well, we better slowdown here. We really blew this. The top editor the New York Times thinks they did a grand job the head of CNN thinks they did a grand job looking at look at how cocky still. These phony journalists, particularly on cable still are telling us that really everything they did was right. Look at the Philip bumps over the Washington Post. It's a palling. The media are destroying freedom of the press. Not President Trump. Not me. Not the government. The media are destroying themselves. You and I are trying to save them. But they won't listen. I'll be right back..
Mueller report recounts 10 'episodes' involving Trump and questions of obstruction
"Special counsel Robert Muller's report into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen presidential campaign is now in the hands of congress and the American public. But while the investigation is over the nearly four hundred fifty page report is creating more questions. Bob Costantini reports from the White House attorney general bars statement based on the molar report out that while it was quite clear.

Indeed as the report states, quote, the investigation did not identify evidence that any US person knowingly or intentionally coordinated with the IRA's interference operation, unquote. Put another way the special counsel found. No collusion. The report itself suggest the June two thousand sixteen meeting at Trump Tower arranged by Donald from junior with Russians claiming to have dirt on Hillary Clinton was one of many contacts studied under what's commonly referred to as collusion. Otherwise, quote, the Russian contacts consisted of business. Actions offers of assistance to the campaign invitations for candidate Trump and Putin to meet in person invitations for campaign officials and representatives of the Russian government to meet and policy positions seeking improved US Russian relations in quote, President Trump's initial public reaction was breath during an event hosting wounded warriors here and they're having a good day. I'm having to do it was called, no collusion. No obstruction. The attorney general Robert Muller handed off the idea of whether the president or someone close to him tried to obstruct Justice in the Russia investigation after finding ten potential episodes. Although the deputy attorney general disagreed with some of the special counsels legal theories and felt that some of the episodes examined did not amount to obstruction as a matter of law. We did not realize solely on that. In making our decision. Democrats on Capitol Hill will certainly try to look at those episodes further including the firing of James Comey and some of the president's tweets urging potential witnesses to not rat on him related to the obstruction of Justice aspect of the Muller reports bar over this bit of empathy for President Trump. There is substantial evidence to show that the president was frustrated and angered by his sincere belief that the investigation was undermining his presidency propelled by his political opponents and fuelled by illegal leaks. Robert Mueller lifted up. Bar deputy attorney general rod Rosenstein to look into whether the president or someone close to him could have engaged in obstruction of Justice. They decided no among the obstruction of Justice lines of inquiry Muller mentioned in the report are the firing of James Comey attempts to influence witnesses and the president's order to White House counsel dumb again that he tell deputy AG rod Rosenstein, the fire Muller Mcgann who spoke with the team for as much as thirty hours apparently refused to do.

Michael Cohen to stay loyal once Cohen head criminal legal problems in New York Muller ends with a hint for congress to decide if it should charge the president with obstruction on the way tomorrow Lago. President Trump tweeted from Air Force One I had the right to end the whole witch hunt. If I wanted I have fired everyone, including Muller if I wanted I chose not to I had the right to use executive privilege. I didn't however the report makes a point of comment regarding obstruction. The president's to influence the investigation were mostly unsuccessful. But that is largely because the persons who surrounded the president declined to carry out orders or accede to his requests. And now it's up to congress to take the next step. Linda Kenyon, has the view from Capitol Hill. Michael if you thought it was over thank again special counsel made clear that he did not exonerate the president, and the responsibility now falls to congress told the president accountable for his actions.
