At 2:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoon one of the C-SPAN online feeds which was carrying their live House telecast was interrupted by a signal carrying the RT network. The C-SPAN state that it wasn’t a hacker’s attack. Their initial investigation suggests that was caused by an internal routing error. The statement was made public on their Twitter account.

The representative Maxine Waters was on the floor of the House of Representatives, arguing for the importance of the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The audience did not learn how that sentence ended. Ms. Waters was cut off. Instead, they heard the jangling music of a feed from RT, a state-run Russian television network that has been accused of helping its government interfere in the American election.

Some on social media immediately assumed that the interruption, which lasted about 10 minutes, had nefarious implications.
