Bombshell Secret CIA Report Says Russia Aimed To Steal White House For Trump
"A shocking secret CIA assessment has concluded that Russia interfered with the U.S. presidential election expressly to help Donald Trump win, according to an exclusive report Friday by The Washington Post."

Trump denies CIA report that Russia intervened to help him win election
"President-elect Donald Trump said he does not believe the CIA’s conclusion that Russia intervened in the election to help him win, attributing the assessment to Democrats who supported Hillary Clinton and claiming repeatedly that the U.S. intelligence community has “no idea” what might have happened."

First, how could he know what some hackers from another country did or did not do? Of course he'll say he doesn't believe it. And of course, for his supporters, belief is everything. Fact doesn't matter.

Well, here's what the CIA believes ("with high confidence"), which is the actual agency that's supposed to be detecting, assessing, and countering these sort of interventions. The hacks targeted emails of Trump's opponents, the Democratic Party, and a key aide to his opponent in the presidential election. Russian hackers also infiltrated the RNC's computer systems but did not release information gleaned from the Republican networks. They passed the information to WikiLeaks, which revealed it and posted it online.

Just to remind, at one point Trump publicly encouraged Russia to "find" Mrs Clinton's emails, although he later backpedaled and said he was just being sarcastic. Ultimately, the hacks undermined Clinton's campaign.

Those are the facts. Hillary's campaign suddenly lost momentum in the days before the election, and Trump ultimately prevailed. I've yet to hear from the hordes of right-wing conspiracy theorists who haven't stopped blabbering about rigged elections, electoral fraud, illegal voting and all that stuff – where are they NOW, when the facts are being laid out before us by the CIA? Don't tell me the CIA has conspired with Hillary now!?

Only a person with traitorous intent would turn their back on an investigation into a potential compromise of America's national election process. If one seeks to impede such an investigation, I believe their motives are to be suspect for the very worst of reasons. As would any reasonable person. Tread carefully. And keep your eyes open for people like that. Right? And we might already be having one name, don't we?

Russia has already won the whole thing. Putin is the ultimate con man here. And just because he has taken Trump's side in this, doesn't mean he hasn't collected information on him too, which could make him vulnerable when needed. He's got Trump both in his pocket and on a leash. If that's not the definition of a Manchurian candidate, I don't know what is.
