Sergey Morgachev; Iron Troll Guide To TrumpGate


Sergey Morgachev was one of the 12 Russian intelligence officers indicted by the special counsel in July of 2018.

All of the indicted individuals worked for the Russian military intelligence agency, GRU. They were accused of interfering in the 2016 presidential election by stealing and releasing documents from the DNC and DCCC through Guccifer 2.0 and DNCLeaks.

Sergey Morgachev was a Lieutenant Colonel assigned to Unit 26165. He oversaw a department within Unit 26165 dedicated to developing and managing malware, including a hacking tool used by the GRU known as “X-Agent.”

The constitution of Russia doesn’t allow the extradition, so it’s unlikely any of these officers will be brought to justice.
