Arrested: Russian Tech Tycoon who Rigged 2016 Election for Trump


RawStory: A Russian tech businessman with alleged ties to 2016 election hacking has been taken into U.S. custody.

Vladislav Klyushin was extradited Dec. 18 from Switzerland on insider trading charges, but American authorities believe he’s a Kremlin insider who may have information about Russian intelligence operations — including evidence about foreign manipulation of the election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, reported Bloomberg.

The 41-year-old Klyushin, who was awarded a medal of honor 18 months ago from Russian president Vladimir Putin, has access to documents related to the “Fancy Bear” hack of Democratic Party servers nearly six years ago, according to sources in Moscow, and could give U.S. authorities its clearest picture yet of alleged Russian efforts to influence the presidential election.

Klyushin is among several high-level individuals accused of taking part in election manipulation schemes, and two of them provided information several years ago that resulted in the indictments of other Russians involved in the election meddling, which Russia has repeatedly denied.

  1. Ya sure you betcha.
    So arrest the Russian guy to “prove to world ” it was NOT a pro-Bernie Sanders Democratic National Committee worker (SETH RICH)
    who was pissed off at Hillary buying her way to nomination and he gave the files to wikileaks.
    “They” promptly killed him to make a point. And then blamed “Russia” as is the thing to do when your own people and yourself (Hillary) are responsible.
    What Hillary did to Libya evidence she capable of anything. She blames Russia like Trump blames China.
    Good riddance to Hillary too bad replacement had to be even worse that’s democracy in USA huh

  2. As if a computer hack was necessary. I vividly remember news stories on election night, where an army of Trump lawyers had 240,000 votes sequestered in Detroit alone. Ditto Flint. Those votes were never counted. The same was done in Minn. Wisc and Ohio that I remember. Certain precincts were selected to throw off the demographics as well as the outcome of the vote. I remember thinking; they’ll never get away with it, the dems will be all over it. What did I get for thinking? President Trump. All these ‘hacking’ claims, yet no mention of vote rigging or that nothing was done. The best part of this article was that Klyushin was indicted for insider trading. Ain’t that the pot and the kettle…the rest is innuendo.
