The “Russian Hacking” Story Changes Again

So, the story changes, which is not surprising, but the public is never to be shown any evidence. We peons are supposed to believe whatever the Intelligence community tells us to believe. Personally, I don’t believe anything they say without evidence.  – Shorty Dawkins

Today at 9:30 am, senior U.S. intelligence officials face questions at a Senate hearing that will be dominated by the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia meddled in the presidential election to help Donald Trump win. Participating will be James R. Clapper, Jr., Director Of National Intelligence. Marcel J. Lettre II, Under Secretary Of Defense For Intelligence and Admiral Michael S. Rogers, USN, Commander, United States Cyber Command.

The Armed Services Committee’s cyber threats hearing on Thursday comes a day before the president-elect is to be briefed by the CIA and FBI directors — along with the director of national intelligence — on the investigation into Russia’s alleged hacking efforts. Trump has been deeply critical of their findings, even appearing to back controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange’s contention that Russia did not provide him with hacked Democratic emails

The committee’s session is the first in a series aimed at investigating purported Russian cyber-attacks against U.S. interests and developing defenses sturdy enough to blunt future intrusions. “We will obviously be talking about the hacking, but the main thing is the whole issue of cybersecurity,” the committee’s Republican chairman, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, said ahead of the hearing. “Right now we have no policy, no strategy to counter cyberattacks.”

More importantly, however, the hearing comes hours after Reuters reported overnight that U.S. intelligence agencies obtained what they considered to be conclusive evidence after the November election that Russia provided hacked material from the Democratic National Committee to WikiLeaks. However, in the latest change of the narrative, this time the allegation is that Russia provided the hacked data through a third party, three U.S. officials said on Wednesday.

    “It’s another example of the how little respect there is for we the people and law.”

    First, respect is EARNED. How can they respect “We the people of the united States” when we do not even bother to know what those that serve within our government are required to do, allowed to do under certain circumstances and only if done in specific put-into-writing ways, and what is forbidden to them to do – state and federal?

    How can we be respected when we do not bother to even know what our own duties are under our legitimate government?

    How can they respect the “law” when we do not enforce it? They are not doing any differently then any other criminal would under the same circumstances. Nothing happens even when they commit reason, endanger our nation, cause the death of our people with lies to benefit corporations/banking, etc?

    We do not deserve any respect, we have not only not earned it, but we have gone lower then that, and bend over for them every time. /shakes head sadly

      I was being sarcastic. They flaunt their lawless behavior and there is little or outrage and certainly no consequence. yes, you are exactly correct.

    Speaking of confidence level how about the confidence level of intelligence that got us into Iraq war?
    Confidence Levels for Selected Key Judgments in This Estimate

    Iraq’s Continuing Programs for Weapons of Mass Destruction
    High Confidence:
    Iraq is continuing, and in some areas expanding, its chemical, biological, nuclear and missile programs contrary to UN resolutions.
    We are not detecting portions of these weapons programs.
    Iraq possesses proscribed chemical and biological weapons and missiles.
    Iraq could make a nuclear weapon in months to a year once it acquires sufficient weapons-grad fissile material

    Moderate Confidence:
    Iraq does not yet have a nuclear weapon or sufficient material to make one but is likely to have a weapon by 2007 to 2009. (See INR alternative view, page 84).

    Low Confidence
    When Saddam would use weapons of mass destruction.
    Whether Saddam would engage in clandestine attacks against the US Homeland.
    Whether in desperation Saddam would share chemical or biological weapons with al-Qa’ida.

    How did that work out for The USA?

    The Russian stories are all BS, made up and leaked to media by socialists in the fed government to make Trump look so bad impeachment would be possible. This was planned by BO and HRC, as plan B if Trump won election. The link below is John McAfee of McAfee Antivirus, explaining why it was NOT the Russians.
