TRUMP FINALLY ADMITTED RUSSIAN MEDDLING


A quote from Facebook on my wall:

  • “Hold up, Trump just accepted the intelligence on Russian meddling

People act as if Trump JUST NOW admitted to Russian interference? It is the weirdest thing! He has been saying that the entire thing was under Obama’s watch… do people not pay attention unless it is the latest outrage? They are guided by the media’s outrager of the week so easily, and are about a year-and-a-half too late (LARRY ELDER Hat-Tip)

Exclusive: Russian Hackers Attacked The 2008 Obama Campaign

Russian hackers targeted the 2008 Barack Obama campaign and U.S. government officials as far back as 2007 and have continued to attack them since they left their government jobs, according to a new report scheduled for release Friday.

The targets included several of the 2008 Obama campaign field managers, as well as the president’s closest White House aides and senior officials in the Defense, State and Energy Departments, the report says….

Here is a conversation from Facebook regarding the same issue:

(ME) This has got to be the dumbest thing. I mean really. EVERY election the Russians meddle. They have done so far worse in our past, and Obama meddled more directly in Israel’s election than Russia did in our. Dumb.

(JG) Siding with Putin over our own intelligence community is not only dumb, it is treasonous.

[First off, the ability to not separate the two issues is astounding to me… and it comes from a deep animus to Trump. I explain, but notice I am backing Putin because I can (again, can) separate the issue at hand.]

(ME) No. Every one knows Russians meddled? Who is saying they didn’t? There are (and have been) two issues here. The unnamed sources from the DOJ, State Dept., and FBI put in article after article saying Trump colluded [WaPo, NYT, MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NPR, et al.].

Do you not see that JG?

The witch hunt is a fake dossier and biased FBI investigators who should have recused themselves passing off a fraud of a document to get FISA warrants.

THAT is completely separate from Russians hacking U.S. political parties and elections and other government operations each year. Every year.

Each year and? Again, OUR GOVERNMENT tried to influence with American personnel and tax-payer money the defeat of Bibi more than these “indicted ham sandwiches” ever did.

(ME AGAIN)You do know and acknowledge that Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC (Hillary again, according to Donna Brazile), which ended up in Russian hands that put together almost all of the info in it right JG?

You also know the most probable reason the DNC didn’t hand the server over to the FBI right? It was the active working against Bernie Sanders that they probably didn’t want to split their party over.


REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN WARNING OF THIS SINCE 2014


Here is a statement by Devin Nunes, The House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence:

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes issued the following statement today on the indictments of Russian individuals and entities for interfering in the 2016 U.S. elections:

“The Putin regime presents a pressing threat to American interests, including through Moscow’s long-running influence operations against the United States. The House Intelligence Committee has been investigating these threats for many years: in 2014—the year the Russians began their operation targeting the 2016 elections—I warned about Russia’s worldwide influence operations. In April 2016 I stated that the United States’ failure to predict Putin’s plans and intentions is ‘the biggest intelligence failure that we’ve had since 9/11.’ Although the Obama Administration failed to act on the Committee’s warnings, it’s gratifying to see that Russian agents involved in these operations have now been identified and indicted.”

(DEVIN NUNES)

Republicans would not have given a “Stand Down Order”


DNC vs RNC COOPERATION


Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson said the DNC rebuffed help from them:

DNC REJECTED FBI HELP:

  • Mr. Johnson said his department identified Russian interference as “a front-burner item” last summer and reached out numerous times to assist the DNC after its network servers were hacked. “I was anxious to know whether our folks were in there,” he said. “The response I got was FBI had spoken to them, they don’t want our help, they have [private cybersecurity firm] CrowdStrike. And that was the answer I got after I asked the question a number of times over the progression of time. (WASHINGTON TIMES)
  • He testified that hacks in 2015 on the Office of Personnel Management spurred him to press his staff “to know whether DHS was sufficiently proactive, and on the scene helping the DNC identify the intruders and patch vulnerabilities,” according to prepared remarks he submitted to the committee. “I was anxious to know whether our folks were in there. The response I got was FBI had spoken to them, they don’t want our help, they have CrowdStrike,” Johnson testified, referring to the cybersecurity firm that investigated the Russian hacks on behalf of the DNC. (DAILY CALLER)

RNC ASKED FOR HELP:

  • Hackers did send phishing emails to the RNC last spring, in much the same manner as attacks which hit the DNC and other Democratic organizations and staffers. But a spam filter quarantined those suspicious emails, officials told the WSJ.Additionally, following the public exposure in June of the incursion into the DNC, officials at the RNC – concerned too that their network might also have been penetrated – hired a private computer security firm. The unnamed company then contacted the FBI and received intel on how to distinguish malicious emails. Knowing precisely what to look out for, this led to the determination that electronic filters put in place had indeed stopped spam delivered to a former employee. (SC MEDIAwho is SC MEDIA?)

OBAMA ADMIN DIALED BACK SECURITY


Here is another example of HOW Russians were allowed to play in our elections… NOT by Trump:

The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016.

The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn, that detailed his thwarted efforts to respond to the Russian attack…..

TRUMP TOUGHER ON RUSSIA THAN OBAMA


If you think Russia spent money to get Trump in office, that was the biggest waste of money in history.

  • This admin reversed the policy of the Obama administration, which stood silently when Putin’s Russia annexed Crimea and attacked Ukraine. The Trump admin has sold the Ukrainians lethal defensive weaponry, including anti-tank missiles designed to destroy Putin’s Russian tanks in the hands of separatist rebels. (THE HILL)
  • The Trump administration has expelled 60 Russians, labeling them “spies” pretending to be diplomats. (DAILY WIRE)
  • About 300 men working for a Kremlin-linked Russian private military firm (many were Russian special operatives) were either killed (about 200) or injured in Syria on orders from the Trump administration (WASHINGTON TIMES)
  • Now, President Donald Trump approved sanctions on 38 different Russian companies and entities in response to Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, its presence in Ukraine, and support for the Assad regime in Syria. These entities include 7 Russian oligarchs, 12 companies they own and control, 17 Russian senior government officials, and a state owned Russian weapons trading company…. even sanctioning a member of Putin’s family. (DAILY CALLER)
  • President Trump is pressuring Germany to stop paying Russia BILLIONS of dollars a year via the gas-pipeline deal (YOUTUBE).

If Putin paid for Trump, Trump is a smart mother-effer, because he first used Russian interests to get the White House, and then immediately turned on Russias interests.

Putin, then, is an idiot, and Trump? The smart-as-hell-tactician.


DID RUSSIA HACK AFTER TRUMP ASKED THEM TO?


This is reeally dumb… but it is all over “town” — I will post Rush Limbaugh’s noting this charge followed by a HOT AIR comment on Christopher Ingraham’s‏ Tweet:

Ingraham later clarified that tweet to note that the indictment doesn’t say Russia tried to hack Team Hillary for the first time, period, that day in July. They’d been trying to hack her campaign and the DNC for months by that point. Nor does it say that they attempted to hack her infamous “homebrew” server that day, as that was already offline by July 2016. What it implies is interesting enough, though: Did they zero in on a fresh set of email accounts used by Hillary’s office in response to Trump’s calls to, ahem, “find” her missing personal emails?
