Dutch intelligence services have provided "crucial evidence" to U.S. counterparts about Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, Dutch media reported Friday.
Apparently, the Dutch penetrated a security camera in the corridor leading to the hackers' office, giving the counter-spies a view of everyone who came and went - information that was shared with United States intelligence. If the Dutch witnessed the DNC intrusion in 2015 and reported it to USA colleagues, it's hard to understand why the Russian hackers were left to forage in the DNC network for months without being ejected.

AIVD had access to security cameras that recorded who entered and exited the room as well other security cameras around the building located near Red Square, where the Cozy Bear operations took place.
AIVD also reportedly alerted US authorities about Russia's attack on the US State Department's unclassified computers in 2014.
