It's not exactly the Cold War. No, this time around it's a little more...direct
. Russia and the US don't see eye to eye on plenty of things (Syria, etc.) but now the US is accusing Russia of hacking a voter registration system
in Florida. The US is apparently considering a range of "proportional" responses to recent rounds of alleged hacking, which doesn't sound ominous at all. (By the way, Russia flatly denies all of this.)
At this point in the campaign, you could just put a bunch of keywords into a generator and come up with the next day's big headline. Today's is: The Trump campaign is threatening to sue the New York Times
. The NYT published a piece featuring two women who said Donald Trump touched them inappropriately. A People Magazine writer
published her own allegations late last night. We haven't independently confirmed either accounts.
3. Hillary Clinton
Meanwhile, WikiLeaks released more of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta's e-mails and hackers got a hold of his Twitter account
. The e-mail hacks have been embarrassing to the campaign, but Podesta is being very mom-who-just-took-up-yoga about it. "It doesn't feel great," he said "But I am kind of zen about it at this stage, personally."
4. Wells Fargo
The bank's CEO John Stumpf has stepped down
. Gee, can't imagine why; maybe it's the huge scandal surrounding nearly two million fake bank and credit card accounts
that Wells Fargo workers say they created to meet quotas. Just a wild guess.
It looks like ISIS has found a new way to spread violence. They apparently used a drone packed with explosives to kill Peshmerga soldiers in Iraq
. Officials say it's the first time ISIS used a drone this way. The scary thing is it looks like the drone was some cheap model you can get off the internet.
