At the FBI’s behest, the State Department delayed approving the visas until after the election.

Meanwhile, the FBI was tracking a flurry of hacking activity against U.S. political parties, think tanks and other targets. Russia had gained entry to DNC systems in the summer of 2015 and spring of 2016, but the breaches did not become public until they were disclosed in a June 2016 report by The Post."

AND catch the part of Jeh Johnson's reaction when he tried a conference call to dozens of state officials on both sides of the aisle. Would it surprise you to know he got....zip...from the GOP side? Resistance. At best. The reaction “ranged from neutral to negative,” Johnson said in congressional testimony Wednesday.

Brian Kemp, the Republican secretary of state of Georgia, used the call to denounce Johnson’s proposal as an assault on state rights. “I think it was a politically calculated move by the previous administration,” Kemp said in a recent interview, adding that he remains unconvinced that Russia waged a campaign to disrupt the 2016 race. “I don’t necessarily believe that,” he said.

Stung by the reaction, the White House turned to Congress for help, hoping that a bipartisan appeal to states would be more effective. Any guesses?
“The Dems were, ‘Hey, we have to tell the public,’ ” recalled one participant. But Republicans resisted, arguing that to warn the public that the election was under attack would further Russia’s aim of sapping confidence in the system.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) went further, officials said, voicing skepticism that the underlying intelligence truly supported the White House’s claims. Through a spokeswoman, McConnell declined to comment, citing the secrecy of that meeting. MCCONNELL KNEW....all this time. HE KNEW.

Key Democrats were stunned by the GOP response and exasperated that the White House seemed willing to let Republican opposition block any pre-election move.
Adam Schiff said it best: “Where Democrats need to take responsibility,” Schiff said, “is that we failed to persuade the country why they should care that a foreign power is meddling in our affairs.”

This is unbelievable. The GOP hated Obama so much they didn't even believe the evidence, refused to cooperate and then denied knowing. O.M.G.
What did Obimbo do after finding out Russians were trying to hack? McConnell was in a secret meeting and you know what was said in that meeting? Adam Schiff's reasoning is a little skewed, don't you think. No one wants the Russians meddling in our business. That should have been a no-brainer for that idiot.
What has been done about the DNC giving Hillary the answers to the questions ahead of time? And of course, being the morally upright person she is, she said... NOTHING!
