This. If you want to be a whistle blower, there are already avenues that are perfectly legal, up to and including finding a friendly senator or congressperson, who are charged with oversight of the rest of the government, and passing one (or the entire legislature) the information. They can then make public with immunity and/or take action against others inside the government. Leaking directly to the press is a last resort because it is both illegal and potentially life threatening to covert operatives.
A great idea -- until the first senator you go to turns out to be not so supportive and turns you in. So much for getting the data out at all.
The next thing to look at is whether or not this is just a dress rehearsal for a real attack. My guess is that this is just a test... They want to know what it takes to shut down a chunk of the internet. Next time will be the real act of 'terrorism'.
So when every yahoo on your segment fires up BitTorrent your VoIP stops working? No thank you.

Executives and senior managers got their bonuses, and the line staff ultimately got the shaft.
That having been said, for this election, Trump is probably the worst 'worst case' I've seen in the US in a long, long time. as much as I'd like to see someone like the Greens gain stature, The risk of trump getting in is (IMHO), too disturbing to advocate a third party vote in this election (at least, not for president. For congress is an entirely different matter).
In this case, doing harm was the intent of the machine and/or it's programming. As such, the maker is clearly responsible. If the harm was unintended/unexpected and there were no clear negligence, then I'd have a completely different conversation on this.
Things get more difficult as you get further away from the original source, but -- generally speaking -- if the result is generally what you intended from an action (or series of actions), then it's pretty clear that you're responsible. This is even true where there is a human intermediary. If I pay a hitman to kill my ex wife, I can still be arrested for first degree murder -- even if he kills the wrong person by mistake.
The privacy of private information that Google has access to needs to remain sacrosanct or there will be a huge pile of people walking away from Google.
That's interesting because you haven't provided any details about the subjects for which he is supposedly spreading ignorance. It looks to me like a symptom of you, yourself, being a victim of ignorance spreading about Sanders.
Have you been to his site to examine what his actual principles and platforms are?
That's because Sanders is spreading ignorance.
