Michael McFaul: we underestimate capabilities of Russian special services

The former US ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul, commented a scandal surrounding the exposure of activities of the Russian special services, which had access to the Democratic National Committee's information for approximately one year.

"Russia has tremendous capabilities, both the Russian government and their proxies and people somewhat affiliated with the government. We always underestimate their capabilities," Politico cited him as saying.

He also said that he think that they intended to do this without being caught.

Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and gained access to the entire database of opposition research on GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. The intruders also were able to read all email and chat traffic.
