Between these supposed “intelligence” briefings and how the FNM is presenting them, I feel pretty let down. It’s like they’re barely even trying to fool us.
CNN has a new update on those darn omnipotent Russians here. This is what they write to further the idea that the Russians “hacked” the election:
Meanwhile, US intelligence has received new information following the election that gave agencies increased confidence that Russia carried out the hack and did so, in part, to help Trump win.
Included in that new information were intercepted conversations of Russian officials expressing happiness at Trump’s win. Another official described some of the messages as congratulatory.
Officials said this was just one of multiple indicators to give them high confidence of both Russian involvement and Russian intentions. Officials reiterated that there is no single intercepted communication that qualifies as a “smoking gun” on Russia’s intention to benefit Trump’s candidacy or to claim credit for doing so.
So if you recall during the campaign, Trump was consistently proposing the idea of détente with Russia instead of war. Hillary Clinton was consistently proposing the idea of war with Russia instead of détente.
If you were Russian, who would you want to win?
It’s almost as if the rogue elements of our intelligence agencies and fake news networks like CNN don’t respect the American people any longer.
