Bob writes that he is practically through with Russian Roulette. He states it is amazingly researched and revealing about the Russian involvement in hacking, the systematic attacks on social media, AND the influencing in our election. He says this is a must read because there is no indication the Russians will not do even more this November and in 2020.
