I do not know about other people and their cats, but with Donald Trump, Russia, And Wikileaks, if you were to grab a cat by the tail and swing it around, you will definitely hit a lot of liars in the face….
Thursday we had CIA, HLS and others testify that the Russian connection to the 2016 elections was not only prevalent, but associated directly to assist Donald, and was much more severe than originally thought. We had the exposure of the Russian go-betweens of the DNC emails to Wikileaks, and the huge numbers of fake social media accounts to help prop up an otherwise losing candidate that “owes” Russia huge favors.
At Thursday’s hearing, Clapper said that U.S. spy agencies “stand actually more resolutely” behind conclusions they reached last year on Russia’s determination to undermine the U.S. election. He also appeared to take aim at Trump’s social media sniping at U.S. intelligence services, saying that “there’s a difference between skepticism and disparagement.” “The Honorable James R. Clapper was sworn in as the fourth Director of National Intelligence (DNI) on August 9, 2010. As DNI, Mr. Clapper leads the United States Intelligence Community and serves as the principal intelligence adviser to the President.”
U.S. officials who have reviewed the new report said it goes far beyond the brief public statement that Clapper and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson issued in October, accusing Russia of having “directed” cyber operations to disrupt the U.S. election, and concluding, in a reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin, that “only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”While other information has been gathered, it leads one to believe the original story that President Obama stated of trying not to appear to be trying to influence the outcome of the most current Presidential election. Other key pieces of information gathered by U.S. spy agencies include the identification of “actors” involved in delivering stolen Democratic emails to the WikiLeaks website and disparities in the levels of effort Russian intelligence entities devoted to penetrating and exploiting sensitive information stored on Democratic and Republican campaign networks. So we now know that Julian Assange, as this reported has earlier reported has been a Russian plant, and cannot be believed or trusted. U.S. officials said the captured messages, whose existence has not previously been disclosed, added to the confidence level at the CIA and other agencies that Putin’s goals went beyond seeking to undermine confidence in America’s election machinery and ultimately were aimed at tilting a fiercely contested presidential race toward a candidate seen as more in line with Moscow’s foreign policy goals.
Russia also used social media and “fake news” platforms as an “accelerant” to try to boost Trump and undermine Clinton, the second official said. While Trump supporters started with the “Fake News” agenda, it is now outed that Russia was the one creating “Fake News” sites to prop up Trump, and also to try to create cyber attacks of real news and replace it with lies and disinformation. Donald J. Trump, accepting such actions not only opened Pandora’s box of cyber attacking, but also round 2 of the Cold War with Russia.
The question now is, with facts in place, the evidence available, where does America go today? Reports of up to 50 illegitimate Electors who voted for Donald Trump, The cyber attacks, fake news, Wikileaks, DNC invasion, and robotic twitter and facebook Russian supporters of Donald leaves many questions to be answered. Does America go forward with questions of a legitimate POTUS elect, does America disqualify Donald and put VP elect Pence in his place, does America give the election to the Democrats, or should America do a new election with new names and disqualify the two major party candidates due to questionable results and backgrounds? Questions that America at a whole needs to decide, and not the staunch supporters of one group or another.
This reporter states: Yes if you read the Russian propaganda you can predict what Trump will tweet next with uncanny accuracy @realDonaldTrump. This is my answer, what is yours? This is a national debate that cannot be ignored, pushed to the side, or lied about. The facts are facts, and America cannot afford the wrong choice this time.Tags: WikiLeaks
