CIA: We saw Putin’s instructions to hack the election

As elections loom, Putin says it’s not his fault there isn’t any competition

How about that?

When Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., CIA Director John Brennan and FBI Director James B. Comey all went to see Donald Trump together during the presidential transition, they told him conclusively that they had “captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation” to hack the 2016 presidential election, according to a report in The Washington Post. The intel bosses were worried that he would explode but Trump remained calm during the carefully choreographed meeting. “He was affable, courteous, complimentary,” Clapper told the Post. Comey stayed behind afterward to tell the president-elect about the controversial Steele dossier, however, and that private meeting may have been responsible for the animosity that would eventually lead to Trump firing the director of the FBI.

    Clapper lied to the congress and to the American people. Snowden proved that. Therefore anything Clapper says is suspect.

    Trump’s relationship with Putin and Russia, however important, pales by comparison to Trump’s dangerous relationship with Netanyahu and Israel.

    Nikki Halley, a grubby, little, dirt bag who would throw her own mother under a bus just to get ahead, certainly put on a Colin Powell-like presentation yesterday with her faked evidence and phony props.
    It’s obvious that Trump has adopted Netanyahu’s ME foreign policy, including trying to gin up support for a war with Iran, lock, stock and smoking barrel.

    Will the Democrats allow this Republican war? Again.

    If they do Iran will immediately attack Israel and Saudi Arabia.

    Russia, Syria, Iraq, Lebanon (Hezbollah), Hamas, Turkey, Afghanistan (Taliban) and Pakistan will all side with Iran.

    Egypt and Jordon will pause, wring their hands and then find themselves embroiled in an internal civil war.

    Oman and Qatar will remain neutral.

    So Trump has knowingly and repeatedly lied to the American public about Russian meddling in our elections.
    Will there be any penalty for this?
