OSNI/CIS Russia Report Was Politically "Rigged"...Anyone who has followed politics and the intersection with intelligence reports already knew the CIA (Brennan) and ODNI (Clapper) report was constructed nonsense. They are both doing and saying what Obama wants them to do.
Via. Fox News -- On Fox News, Megyn Kelly asked former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Pete Hoekstra whether he accepted the conclusion by 17 intelligence agencies in a recently released declassified report that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election and that this interference came at the direction of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Putin Meddled In Election To Help Donald Trump
Hoekstra gave an answer Kelly did not anticipate. He noted that the declassified report represents the views of only three intelligence agencies, not seventeen. Hoekstra also questioned why the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) did not co-author or clear the report and why it lacked dissenting views.
The declassified report issued on January 6 is an abridged version of a longer report ordered by President Obama that concluded Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign to undermine the 2016 president election, hurt Hillary’s candidacy and promote Donald Trump through cyber warfare, social media and the state-owned Russia cable channel RT. Although the report’s authors said they have high confidence in most of these conclusions, they were unable to include any evidence for classification reasons.
You may remember when Hillary Clinton claimed during the final presidential debate on October 19 that based on the October 7 ODNI/DHS statement, all 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had determined the WikiLeaks disclosures of Democratic emails were an effort by Russia to interfere with the election.
Clinton’s remark was not accurate. Although the October memo said “the U.S. Intelligence Community” was confident that the Russian government was behind the alleged hacking, the October memo was drafted by only two intelligence organizations – ODNI and DHS.
Since it came out only a month before the presidential election and was co-authored by only two intelligence agencies, the October memo looked like a clumsy attempt by the Obama White House to produce a document to boost Clinton’s reelection chances. Its argumentation was very weak since it said the alleged hacking of Democratic emails was “consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts” but did not say there was any evidence of Russian involvement.
Blog Author's Comments -- The political intelligence groups of the U.S. has no proof that Russia 'hacked' the election to help Donald Trump. The intelligence heads are saying what Obama and the Democrat Party wants them to say. Academia should use this saga as a case study showing how 'Fake News' is created and believed by many low-information voters and leftists. Clapper and Brennan have got nothing, but with the help of the MSM the Russian hack meme is now accepted as truth by so many. I assume that the Russians, Chinese etc. are always trying to gain information for their advantage. The US does it as well. Who needs Russian interference, when the majority of MSM, outlets were in the tank for Hillary Clinton? The intestinal fortitude exhibited by President-Elect Donald Trump should encourage the electorate that he means what he says. I stopped listening to the losers in our government and media who are doing everything they can to delegitimize Trump’s presidency. They have no idea what is coming their way when Trump is inaugurated. Clapper is a perjurer, Brennan is an Obama/Clinton political hack, and Comey is also corrupt.
Why would Russia be in favor of Trump when it was Hillary that got them all that uranium? Also, why are the Democrats so sure that the intelligence agencies are correct about Russia hacking to help Trump but could not get to the bottom of whether Hillary’s missing emails had been hacked? Because this is the excuse they needed for Hillary’s and the Democrat Party’s defeat. Where were the ‘17 agencies’ in investigating whether Hilary’s home grown server was hacked? One woman’s server should have been way easier to investigate than the entire country of Russia. The answer is that other than the FBI, the other agencies, CIA and NSA, did not participate in the Hilary server investigation. Why is that I wonder?
The Democrats need to understand that we don’t believe a thing they say after Benghazi, Hillary's server investigation, IRS scandal, Fast & Furious and much, much more. They have a huge task to convince so many American people that they are not totally incompetent because they really are. During the debates I looked at Hillary's arrogant smile, listened to that voice and felt outrage that she could well be the president but I am extremely happy that media and pollsters were so wrong. Clinton is a woman who has proven she is a corrupt liar and has no place in the United States presidency. The Democrat Party has become a farce. And now, on with the inauguration of Donald Trump as President, and the work that he and his administration have, trying to clean up the mess Obama has made during the past eight years with him in the White House.
