Every day, the Alt-Left Radical “Media” tells us that the CIA and FBI have concluded that Russia assisted Donald Trump in winning the 2016 presidential election by hacking both the DNC and John Podesta’s e-mails.
“The CIA has concluded that Russia intervened in the 2016 election specifically to help Donald Trump win the presidency”, Maine’s Independent Senator Angus King stated on NPR.
The fact is, no leading figure in the CIA has even commented on the issue. Strange, considering that Russia is our “arch enemy” and was supposedly successful in changing the out come of the freeworld’s election outcome…
Here is a link to the CIA’s news and information page. Notice anything missing? https://www.cia.gov/news-information/press-releases-statements
In regards to the FBI, Alt-Left Wing James Comey (FBI Investigation Director). They weren’t even able to retrieve “deleted” e-mails for Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server. And now we’re supposed to believe that Comey’s department can track down sophisticated hackers???
FACT: To date, Alt-Left Radical FBI director James Comey has yet to provide a statement confirming Russian involvement in the hacking of the DNC and John Podesta’s e-mails.
So what do we know for certain?
1. Former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta’s private e-mails were made public through wikileaks along with 44,053 US Democratic National Committee e-mails.
2. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has denied that hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta were stolen and passed to his organization by Russian state actors. “Our source is not the Russian government,” Assange stated and has stated on multiple ocassions.

On December 29th 2016, Joint DHS, ODNI, FBI released a Statement on Russian Malicious Cyber Activity. SOURCE LINK:
It does not provide a smoking gun for Russian involvement. According to this document, two distinct methods were used to obtain John Podesta’s and the DNC’s e-mail information. The first method was Spearphishing or providing web links to a malicious dropper; once executed, the code delivers Remote Access Tools. The second method was to trick people into entering legitimate credentials into fake domains.
In a nutshell, do not open a link in an e-mail you are not familiar with and do not enter your credentials into a website that you have been re-directed to.
The fact is, even the most novices of hackers easily employ these tactics.
It is true that the Democrats have been lackadaisical when it comes to protecting information. In March 2015, it became publicly known that Hillary Clinton, during her tenure as United States Secretary of State, had used her family’s private email server for official communications, rather than official State Department email accounts maintained on federal servers.
In conclusion, the CIA has not confirmed Russian involvement and the FBI has only offered scant ideas on how they believe the Russians might have acquired access to John Podesta’s and the DNC’s e-mails. It is my belief that this Russian hacking controversy is an attempt to undermine Turmp’s presidency and at the same time, divert attention away for Hilliary’s e-mail scandles.
What to expect in the weeks to come:
1. Conservatives will continue to be called Communists for supporting Trump. See Doug Rogers below comment…
2. The left wing media will continue to try and delegitimatize Trump using the, “Russians won him the election” argument.
