Dir. of National Intelligence James Clapper: Russians Did Not Change Any Vote Tallies in U.S. Elections

First things first. Donald Trump won the United States Presidency because of the American people. The accusations being tossed around are being taken seriously. It takes but a moment to look at Donald Trump’s rallies to realize that the people of America were sick to death of politicians running the beloved U.S.A into the ground. This was not about Russia or Wikileaks or anything other than Hillary Clinton could not now or ever relate to the needs and requests of the people. Read this report below and you decide who is telling the truth.

As Written By Melanie Hunter for CNS News:

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper admitted to the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday that the Russians did not alter vote counts in the U.S. election.

“They did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort,” Clapper said under questioning from Chairman John McCain (R.-Ariz.)

Clapper further implicitly conceded that whatever the Russians might have done in making Democratic National Committee emails available to the public, the outcome of the U.S. presidential election nonetheless reflected “the choices” of American voters.

“We had no way of gauging the impact that—certainly the intelligence community cannot gauge the impact–it [Russian cyber activities] had on the choices the electorate made,” Clapper told McCain.

Later in the hearing, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark) asked Clapper, “the intelligence community says, ‘It would be extremely difficult for someone – including a nation-state actor to alter actual ballot counts or election results by cyberattack or intrusion,’ and you say to that earlier today as well that we have no evidence that vote tallies were altered or manipulated in anyway?”

“That’s correct,” Clapper said.

When asked to give a preview to the committee of what will …..

    Obama’s last stand . . . liar in chief is not going to go quietly . . .
    Reality is if the Russians had ole Hillary’s 30,000 emails . . . they would have preferred she won . . . yes!
    Having Hillary’s emails and letting her worry that any meaningful unfriendly actions toward Russia would lead to their release, which in turn could lead to her impeachment, made her a safer bet in the White House than Trump. In Putin’s mind Hillary’s emails were a trump card, and that was better than a Trump.

    yeh…Bullshit. so, wadda we do now Mr. Clapper, go to war with the Russians over WMDs..I mean ‘hacking’…whata load.

    Why believe anything Clapper says, he was exposed as a liar years ago, lying in a congressional hearing before all of America. The leaders of every one of our agencies are all corrupt and in league with Dear Leader and the commiecrats: Comey, Clapper, Brennan, Johnson, et. al.

    What we have here is, as paraphrased from the writings of Cicero some two millenia ago, a tempest in a teapot. It is just another bit of trifling reasoning for Obama and Clinton for losing the election. It is everybody’s fault but their’s. Besides, the Russians began messing with our election since 1920 at least. (No computer hacking of course.). Doesn’t the fact that the validity of the emails in question has been challenged by the Dems bother anyone?

    The only thing to come out of this hearing appears to further show McCains disdain for his own party. If he was honest he would have switched parties years ago!

    So the Russians and Chinese may have attempted to hack into our official government electronic systems. It’s nothing new in the intelligence field. Every one does it. We also have and wouldn’t hesitate to do to them what the Democrats are claiming they did to us. Even the Director of Intelligence admitted that there was no hard evidence to back it up.

    With the dependency on computers growing, something like this was bound to surface. Perhaps too much dependency. All of our electronic systems are vulnerable. No matter how sophisticated the safeguards are, hackers can still find ways around them. Everything we use has been designed, built, assembled and programed by human beings. Humans have overcome mountains, oceans and outer space. If humans can overcome all of that, anything made by humans can be overcome.

    The russkies and others had a good look around at what it would take to intrude and destroy a free election in this country…so if they are truly involved our next national elections are in dire straits and we still have a bunch of C- congress electees that sit on their fat butts and do nothing about guarding these rights…..Term limits no retirement for all elected and appointed gov officials…..a national ballot driven consumption tax to replace the progressive income tax…a ban on all special interest illegal gov unions…..if you want your representation to mean anything, you had better work to get it back…

    Fear mongering. When in doubt, blame Russia.
