I’m quite struck by the difference the word “alleged” makes.
Consider “the primary wrongdoer in this alleged criminal enterprise is undoubtedly the Russian Federation”
vs the NYT’s
"The Russian government was clearly “the primary wrongdoer” for hacking into Democratic computers and funneling purloined documents to WikiLeaks to disseminate, found Judge John G. Koeltl "
You can look at the text of the judgement in the NYT report. But you do have to click on it.
