Intelligence Agencies Refuse To Confirm Russian Interference

“The Russians did it!” That’s the latest slogan on the left.

They say the Trump victory was due to Russia “interfering” with the US election process. That cannot be tolerated, they say, and the Wikileaks emails of the account of the campaign manager for HRC, revealing despicable efforts, were hacked by the Russians. Have you noticed, they don’t claim that the damaging emails were false.

The WH tells us that all the Federal security agencies have the evidence and all agree on this. The heads of these agencies were supposed to testify before the House Intelligence Committee.

None appeared. Apparently, there is a reluctance of these professionals to go along with the latest ‘agenda’ of the election losers.

Do you remember the last Trump-Clinton debate when Chris Wallace only asked Trump, not Clinton, whether he would abide by the election results and challenge them? We wrote the next day, “isn’t it strange that Clinton wasn’t also asked that question?”

The attempt to call into question the victory of Trump will escalate until Inauguration date.

The losing party had been trying to get the Electoral College to be briefed by the intelligence community on Russian hacking in an attempt to get some of them to change their Electoral vote ahead of the decision on December 19, and thus overturn the Trump victory. This is unprecedented interference in the electoral process. Even members of the intelligence committees say that on TV. Interestingly, not one of these intelligence insiders have confirmed the claim of “Russia did it.”

Here is an excerpt from an article about this from Fox News:

Lawmakers fume over agency refusal to brief House panel on Russia hacking claims

Published December 15, 2016

Anger on Capitol Hill boiled over Wednesday night after the intelligence community’s alleged “intransigence” forced the cancellation of a House Intelligence Committee briefing on claims of Russian interference in the U.S. election.

“Somebody has the time to leak it to The Washington Post and The New York Times, but they don’t have the time to come to Congress,” Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., a member of the committee, told Fox News’ “The Kelly File.” “It’s their job to come. They don’t have any choice. They have to come in, especially when they have created this.”

Amid concerns about reports that conflict with details previously provided to the committee, Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., originally had requested a closed, classified briefing for members from the FBI, CIA, Office of the Director of National Intelligence and National Security Agency.

But Fox News was told the CIA Director John Brennan declined to provide a briefer, citing its focus on the full review requested by President Obama. The other agencies did not respond to the committee’s request, which is unusual given the panel is the most-senior committee with jurisdiction.

Nunes had to cancel the briefing in response.

“It is unacceptable that the Intelligence Community directors would not fulfill the House Intelligence Committee’s request to be briefed tomorrow on the cyber-attacks that occurred during the presidential campaign,” Nunes said in a statement. “The Committee is deeply concerned that intransigence in sharing intelligence with Congress can enable the manipulation of intelligence for political purposes.”

King pointed out the irony in the lack of cooperation.

“The consensus was that there was an attempt by the Russians to put a cloud over the election, to create disunity. Well, that’s what’s happening right now, but it’s the intelligence community that’s doing it,” he said.

King added that lawmakers have not received any assessment from the CIA that Russia interfered to help Trump win the presidency over Hillary Clinton, allegations first reported by The Washington Post Friday.
