Vladimir Putin gave direct instructions to help elect Trump, report says

Quote:
A report Friday morning claims Russian President Vladimir Putin gave direct instructions to help elect Donald Trump president.

According to a Washington Post investigation, former President Obama received a secret CIA report in August.

That report "captured Putin's specific instructions on the operation's audacious objectives - defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton."

CBS News confirmed last year that U.S. intelligence officials knew that the Russian government operation to interfere in the U.S. election had been approved by Putin himself, but they were reluctant to reveal how much they knew out of concern that sources and methods could be compromised, CBS News justice and homeland security correspondent Jeff Pegues reports.

The Post reports that U.S. intelligence agencies had sourcing deep inside the Russian government capturing Putin's direct instructions in the operation.

The Post also reports that before he left office Mr. Obama set in motion a secret program that authorized the deployment of "implants" in Russian networks - digital bombs that could be triggered in a retaliatory cyberstrike in the event of Moscow aggression - and that it would be up to President Trump to decide to use the capability.

Anybody who doubts that Russia's government, from the Putin level down, acted to help put Trump in the office ...

At this stage, nothing can be said for those people...

You mean, the people who keep saying no evidence exists for Russian hacking ... despite the fact that evidence does exist?

I agree. Nothing can be said for those people, nothing good anyway.

Those poor folks couldn't even see the lying with a shit-eating grin on Putin's face during the Kelly interview.

Wrong thread again. I'm starting to wonder about the software.

LOL

How exactly did Putin do this magic trick?

Meanwhile Obama did nothing?! There's the real take away. So stick with it, it only makes the inept Obama look worse.

There was no "hacking".
Thanks from caconservative and Sabcat

Yes, Obama was.

And Hillary voters indeed voted against their own interests.

Here's more info. WOW! Very disturbing and we had no idea what was going on.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graph...=.a115e99cae60

"Officials at the State Department and FBI became alarmed by an unusual spike in requests from Russia for temporary visas for officials with technical skills seeking permission to enter the United States for short-term assignments at Russian facilities. 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.

This topic needs serious consideration and it seems that there's so much going on right now that it's getting lost in the shuffle.

This is an example of how much we the people DON'T know about what goes on behind closed doors.
