Such a crazy continuing lie that Russian hacking ties to simply the Steele memo that it really is tiring, Stop it.
Trump admits the Russians did it. Lindsey Graham admits the Russians did it. The whole US Intelligence apparatus appointed BY Trump says they did it.
They did it.https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/201 ... 878910002/
The Russians attempted to interfere and did so. This included a number of things including bot farms, setting up websites, buying ads etc.
But even if there was evidence of the Russians hacking the DNC, there remains some major problems.
First, the DOJ and other agencies should not base their claims of Russian hacking of the DNC on the words of Joe Isuzu, spokesperson for the DEMs ("Trust me") with no actual evidence. They had no reason to acquiesce to the DNC's refusal to turn the hardware over for the FBI's own analysis. I can't think of any instance, particularly on such a major case, of the FBI failing to follow procedure and simply believing the word of someone involved without independent corroboration.
Second, The Muller Report never establishes proof of Russian Hacking. There are many major bits of information simply left out of the report. There are other major inconsistencies with the "proof." Take the curious case of Misfud, the "Russian agent" who contacted Papadopoulis. Nowhere is it ever established that he is one. Mueller claims he lied to the FBI, but never charged him. Why? Given his charging of Russians he knows would never come to trial, why not even charge Misfud? Misfud, after being "identified as a Russian agent" was back in the USA, met with investigators was interrogated, and later left the country. Why? Russian agents are typically apprehended and officially held / charged / tried and imprisoned until echanged. But not him.
Third, the claim that the intel sources believe the Russians hacked the DNC is meaningless. With both Brennan and Clapper proven liars, and working to support the bogus investigation, of course they'd back that position.
Regardless of who says the DNC was hacked by the Russians, where is there any actual PROOF? Simply does not exist. A classic case of "Proof by Blatant Assertion."
Happy to admit I'm mistaken if any of you have information that hasn't been posted here, hasn't been broadcast on the news, didn't make the Mueller report and can provide it. But McK is treating "Russian interference" and the DNC hacking as exactly the same thing. They aren't. I'm happy to admit that the Russians yet again as is their wont, tried to interfere to undermine our confidence in our electoral process.
But this is about one very specific piece of the puzzle. And no, I won't stop, at least not until all of the investigations and their impact have finished and the dust has settled.
So who wants to be the hero to step up first and provide the DNC Russian hacking evidence?
