NYT Reports Russian Hacked Biden Linked Ukraine Gas Company - www.nytimes.com

Excerpts from article:

...With President Trump facing an impeachment trial over his efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his son Hunter Biden, Russian military hackers have been boring into the Ukrainian gas company at the center of the affair, according to security experts.

...The experts say the timing and scale of the attacks suggest that the Russians could be searching for potentially embarrassing material on the Bidens - the same kind of information that Mr. Trump wanted from Ukraine when he pressed for an investigation of the Bidens and Burisma, setting off a chain of events that led to his impeachment.

...The Biden campaign sought to cast the Russian effort to hack Burisma as an indication of Mr. Biden's political strength, and to highlight Mr. Trump's apparent willingness to let foreign powers boost his political fortunes.
