It's Official, Russians Corrupted The Election
'Putin ordered effort to undermine faith in election and help Trump win, U.S. says' WaPo

"Russia carried out a comprehensive cyber campaign to sabotage the U.S. presidential election, an operation that was ordered by Russian President Vladimir Putin and ultimately sought to help elect Donald Trump, U.S. intelligence agencies concluded in a remarkably blunt assessment released Friday.
The report depicts Russian interference as unprecedented in scale, saying that Moscow’s role represented “a significant escalation in directness, level of activity, and scope of effort” beyond previous election-related espionage.
The campaign initially sought to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, “denigrate” Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and damage her expected presidency. But in time, Russia “developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump” and repeatedly sought to artificially boost his election chances.
The report released to the public is an abbreviated version of a highly classified multiagency assessment requested by President Obama. Even so, it amounts to an extraordinary postmortem of a Russian assault on a pillar of American democracy.
The 14-page document made public also serves as an explicit rebuttal to Trump’s repeated assertions that U.S. spy agencies cannot determine who was responsible for a hacking operation that extracted thousands of emails from Democratic Party computer networks and dumped them into public view via the WikiLeaks website."


Wow, this is like some far out John le Carré novel. Putin directs the GRU to hack the DNC and gives the material to WikiLeaks so they can carry out Assange's vendetta against Clinton. SMH. :(

It's as much an act of war as Russia landing troops somewhere would be. Invasions can now be 'virtual,' that's all.

That's right. Couldn't have had anything to do with the lying bitch you nominated.

Yeah Trump is damaged goods in all aspects.

Impeachment is only a matter of time. Unless he can change from a growing perception of instability and a the nagging perception that he may not put America first I think he will gone in two years.

The people in the midwest are waiting for the wall and new manufacturing jobs while Trump has built a plutocratic cabinet and seems to have more loyalty to his kleptocratic dictator colleague Putin than the CIA. Oh and a lot of people in Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin who voted for Trump are also on Obamacare. I don't think the GOP has the competence or the desire to install Chump Care now that they see how hard it will be.

McCain's committee should subpoena Trump's tax records and if he doesn't provide them commence impeachment procedures. For some silly reason, I'd prefer my President to be loyal to the USA and not Russia. I'm funny that way.
