The Progressive narrative that the Russians hacked the election has been destroyed

WASHINGTON — The Latest on a congressional inquiry into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

10:48 a.m.

FBI Director James Comey and Mike Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency, say they have no evidence or intelligence that Russian cyber actors changed vote tallies in key states during last year's presidential election.

Testifying at a highly politically charged congressional hearing in the House, both said they had no evidence that any vote tallies were changed in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina or Ohio.


Why won't the Progressives give up the notion that the Russians hacked the election ?

So let's cut through both the conservative and liberal spin on this one.

1) It's still an on-going investigation. Heck, you conservatives have done some of these types of investigations for years and years yet this one you're ready to declare over in the blink of an eye.

2) The full scope and impact of Russian meddling still is not known - because it's still under investigation.

3) Trump's accusations that he was wiretapped are in fact the only thing that is categorically rejected by this testimony.

So what have you got left?

No proof Russians hacked any voting so says the Powers to Be said under oath.

Tinkering with voting machines isn't necessary to prove hacking the election itself. Tieing Russia with Wikileaks and the Clinton/Democratic Party hacks and dumps is sufficient by itself, not to mention whatever proof they come up with that Trump is a traitor. Your flippant dismissal of all of this smacks of fear of the rest of the truth coming out.

Hey listen, if during the whole Clinton e-mail controversy someone from FBI just came out and said there doesn't appear to be any criminal intent then should all of THAT just gone away? Well, ahem, yes they did say that, and no your side still [email protected] your pants over it and kept hollering for blood. Well don't expect this Russian link to go away so easily. Do you think you're the only ones who can smell fear?

It was destroyed months ago when the FBI came out and said there was nothing. But... as is normal, the left went for the drama queen olympics as is always the case.
