Washington (CNN) — Even as President-elect Donald Trump and his aides cast doubt on the links between Russia and recent hacks against Democrats, US intelligence officials say that newly identified “digital fingerprints” indicate Moscow was behind the intrusions. One official told CNN the administration has traced the hack to the specific keyboards — which featured Cyrillic characters — that were used to construct the malware code, adding that the equipment leaves “digital fingerprints” and, in the case of the recent hacks, those prints point to the Russian government.

Sorry about giving CNN traffic. There is a summary on Red State Watcher for those, like me, who hate giving CNN traffic. I wanted to post the Red State article but it was sourced to CNN so I went for the source (correct me if I’m wrong)

Seriously, they actually said they could trace the digital fingerprints to a specific Keyboard. There is no limit to the extent the left will generate Fake News in an effort to excuse their candidate’s performance in the election.

They are still stuck at Anger and Denial. Long way to go until acceptance.
