This is what makes the whole discussion so surreal. He colluded *right in the f'ing open*, on TV! https://t.co/ZZIaKqANdb— David Roberts (@drvox) July 13, 2018

Starting in at least March 2016, the Conspirators used a variety of means to hack the email accounts of volunteers and employees of the U.S. presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton … including the email account of the Clinton Campaign's chairman…By in or around April 2016, the Conspirators begin to plan the release of materials stolen from the Clinton Campaign, [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee], and [Democratic National Committee]…For example, on or about March 19, 2016, LUKACHEV and his co-conspirators created and sent a spearphishing email to the chairman of the Clinton Campaign…Starting on or about March 19, 2016, LUKACHEV and his co-conspirators sent spearphishing emails to the personal accounts of other individuals affiliated with the Clinton Campaign, including the campaign manager and senior foreign-policy adviser…On or about April 6, 2016, the Conspirators created an email account in the name (with a one letter deviation from the actual spelling) of a known member of the Clinton campaign. The Conspirators then use that account to send spearphishing emails to the work accounts of more than thirty different Clinton Campaign employees…

But after Trump's plea it looks they stepped up their spearfishing efforts and targeted certain accounts for the first time. https://t.co/BMVRlxKml2
