Russian agents appear to have attempted to hack into the firm that employs some of Joe Biden's top advisors. And President Trump's administration is signaling they're just fine with that.

Reuters reported Thursday that suspected Russian state-backed hackers recently targeted staff at SKDKnickerbocker, one of the largest Democratic firms in the country. The attempts, made over the last two months, were thwarted, and the company was alerted by Microsoft.

But the Trump administration seems just fine with those efforts to undermine democracy to help reelect the president. On Wednesday, the House Intelligence Committee released a whistleblower complaint from a senior official at the Department of Homeland Security who claimed that the acting secretary of the DHS and other senior officials demanded that he stop providing intelligence analysis on Russia's attempts to meddle in the election, and retaliated against him when he refused.
