Just when you think that the Democratic Party has pulled every cheap trick in the book, in order to undermine the election of Donald J. Trump as our next president, comes this “Fake News”.
FoxNews.com reports that
President-elect Donald Trump, in an exclusive interview with “Fox News Sunday,” decried as “ridiculous” the CIA’s reported assessment that Russia intervened in the election to boost his candidacy – describing the claim as another “excuse” pushed by Democrats to explain his upset victory.
“It’s just another excuse. I don’t believe it,” Trump said. “… Every week it’s another excuse. We had a massive landslide victory, as you know, in the Electoral College.”
Trump spoke with Fox News’ Chris Wallace in the president-elect’s first Sunday show interview since winning the election.
He spoke at length about his Cabinet selection process, defending his decision to tap several military generals while previewing an announcement soon on his secretary of state choice. He vowed as well to “clean” up and “speed” up government agencies, without necessarily dismantling President Obama’s legacy.
But while staying careful not to personally criticize the sitting president over his intelligence agencies’ analysis on foreign cyber-interference in the election, Trump made clear he rejects their assessment so far.
“Nobody really knows, and hacking is very interesting. Once they hack, if you don’t catch them in the act you’re not going to catch them,” he said. “They have no idea if it’s Russia or China or somebody. It could be somebody sitting in a bed some place.”
Trump was responding to a Washington Post report that the CIA concluded in a secret assessment that Russia interfered in the race to boost Trump, not just undermine confidence in the system.
Intelligence agencies reportedly found individuals connected to the Russian government gave WikiLeaks hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee, as well as from Hillary Clinton Campaign Chairman John Podesta – though did not have “specific intelligence” showing Kremlin officials directed the activity.
The assessment was shared with key senators.
This whole thing smells worse than Russian Caviar.
And, a possible Future State Department Employee agrees with me.
Thehill.com reports that
John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations who has been floated for a possible role in Donald Trump’s State Department, questioned reports of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election.
“It is not at all clear to me, just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC was not a false flag operation,” he told Fox News’ Eric Shawn on Sunday.When pressed about his use of the phrase “false flag” and whether he was accusing an entity in the U.S. of involvement, Bolton said, “We just don’t know.”
“But I believe that intelligence has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree.”
The Washington Post reported Friday that the CIA concluded Russia intervened in the election to help Trump win the presidency.
Various people have been identified who helped the Russian government leak hacked documents from Democratic sources, including the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, to WikiLeaks, according to the report.
Trump assailed Democrats over the issue on Sunday, saying it was ridiculous to think Russia interfered in the election to help him get elected, even as a bipartisan group of senators called for an investigation.
But, “if you think the Russians did this, then why did they leave fingerprints?” that led the CIA to its conclusion, Bolton questioned.
“We would want to know who else might want to influence the election and why they would leave fingerprints that point to the Russians. That’s why I say until we know more about how the intelligence community came to this conclusion we don’t know whether it is Russian inspired or a false flag.”
This whole blasted thing positively reeks of Democratic Desperation.
Former Ambassador Bolton is right.
The Russians would not have been stupid enough to leave their fingerprints all over this sort of operation.
If this “hack” actually happened and it IS a false flag operation, then there is only one person who could sanction it and that is the individual who currently sits in the Oval Office at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC.
Talk about political dirty tricks and abuse of power…this is something pulled from the script of a Hollywood movie.
The fact that the whole Presidential Campaign was corrupted through the use of improbably push polls, paid for protesters, and Television News Reporters not only spewing forth Democrat Talking points but also giving the Hillary Campaign Staff the questions asked in the debates beforehand, should make any other Political Party embarrassed by their own behavior.
But, not the Democrats.
Nope. After the reality of the Trump Victory sunk into the deep dark recesses of their oversized but empty craniums, the Dems decided to double down on stupid.
First, Soros financed protests over the election results in major cities.
That having failed, now they are producing the hearsay report of a “CIA Investigation” of Russian involvement in the election on the side of Mr. Trump.
The Democrats are so frantic over the coming Inauguration of Donald J. Trump, they don’t no what to do.
So, when this “CIA Investigation” is found to have no substance, what next?
Will they claim that Trump is actually an alien from Outer Space?
Come on, Dems.
As the song from the Disney Movie, “Frozen”, which all the kids riding in the back of cars across the country are still singing goes,
Let it go!
