There we go. The information we have been waiting for is now here. It's high time for Trump and Republicans to start seriously listening to our great intelligence sources. Their penchant to want to destroy credibility in those agencies simply because they don't agree with what Trump wants them to say is not the way to do business in this country. We have great information now on the Russian hacking and we should be ever thankful that we have such agencies to inform the president and the nation of vital information needed in order to keep our country more secure. Even some Republicans are taking good note of it. Trump should learn to listen to them rather than put them in bad light which serves no purpose other than to make us look bad to our foreign enemies.

US Official Says Russia Undoubtedly Meddled in US Election
By Richard Lardner, Associated Press

"In its assessment, the intelligence community has said Moscow interfered in the election to help Republican Donald Trump win."

 

"We stand actually more resolutely on the strength of that statement than we did on the 7th of October," James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, told the Armed Services Committee."

 

"McCain of Arizona, the Republican chairman of the committee, said "every American should be alarmed" by Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election. There is "no escaping the fact that this committee meets today for the first time in this new Congress in the aftermath of an unprecedented attack on our democracy," McCain said."

I watched the entire 2 1/2 hour inquiry..confirmed EVERYTHING I already knew and I am no one. Why oh why does our new soon to be POTUS not see facts?

 

Reason..it was just about "the win" and the truth weakens his "win" importance and how he was help to get there. Ray Charles could see the "hacking" had nothing to do with actual votes, that the Right keeps throwing against the wall, it was as was reported in the past is was manipulation of our system and false news.

 

I am so pleased the hearing was held :) Not that the ones that voted him in have a 2 1/2 hour attention span.

It is part of Trump's character to act in a brash manner, while unfamiliar with the facts. For him to trust Putin and Julian Assange more than our own intelligence community is extremely demoralizing to our intelligence community, at home and especially, abroad.

 

It is important that a president (elect) confer with intelligence leaders behind closed doors, and not try to humiliate them by means of public tweets. It is petty, on the part of the president elect but the effects are highly consequential; Signalling to our enemies, that our intelligence system is being domestically threatened and in disarray.

 

Moreover, it is foolish for the Chief Executive to make enemies of the very people he will need to depend on for reliable information about world conditions and events.

Putin is meddling in the EU too and it's well known. On the home front in Russia, Putin pushes the racist alt right big time, it's his nationalist secret in all the journalism he controls there with a firm hand. He's killing people in the Ukraine with a real live gun war, spewing shit in orbiting small states like there's no tomorrow, yes, he's quite the controlling son of a gun. Remember Pussy Riot, he didn't like their message much. Putin himself is a very very rich Fucker, can I say that?

Wouldn't it be nice if we could work together with Russia, a dumb guy like Trump asks... We tried to work with Russia towards a solution in Syria, guess what, he decided to help Assad kill his own people instead. And believe me, even a lot of Republicans understand this.

 

Peace!

Look, I'm new here

 

 

her campaign.

It is clear that Russia did a lot more than just expose a few meaningless emails. Hillary used email, big deal. What was the content of the emails???? Outside of Fox News speculation, nothing was every produced that meant anything. That doesn't mean I support Hillary. The problem is Putin determined the outcome of our election. Perhaps you don't mind our nation being ruled from Russia.

 

Let's be honest. When lies are repeated over and over right up to the election it has an effect, which is to give Putin someone as president of the United States who he can control.

 

 

Comey should be tried for treason. It seems obvious that he is a double agent working for Russia. Why else would he break the law to put Trump in office? To pretend nothing is wrong is to invite more treasonous behavior.

 

What was the extent of Russian hacking the US election? How much money did they give to Trump and his GOP comrades? What does Trump have to give him back? How many republicans are in office because of Russian hacking? How many Diebold, ES&S and Sequoia ballot counting boxes were hacked to give Trump the power to turn over our government to Russia? We have lots of evidence of hacking.

 

So who should care?

I suggest that everyone who wants to have a democracy should care. Everyone who would prefer freedom should care. Everyone who wants a representative government should care. Everyone who wants to keep social security should care. Everyone who wants to keep their job should care. Everyone who wants to be able to send their children to school should care. Everyone who wants the rule of law should care. Everyone who wants justice, decency, and a civilized way of life should care. I wonder why you appear not to care.

Even the conholes don't deny meddling, just that it helped Trump*. It's a very touchy subject for them and Trump*. He will hurt people because of it, but he's a narcissistic asshole and he would do that anyway

There were

, that's for sure.

The GOP has been harping on the fact that Hillary used emails for years. They wasted millions of tax dollars searching for anything they could use against her. They haven't reported anything yet that they can charge her with. Agency after agency reported nothing. Days before an election they report again that there must be something amiss, yet they can never find it, nor report it. Maybe there is but it really doesn't look like it.

 

On the other hand Russia selected the president, and the party controlling congress. Russia takes over America and it looks like you are worried about someone's emails. Where are your priorities?

 

Which is more important?
