Russia's involvement in U.S. election was personally headed by Putin and Trump

Putin selected which material to leak and when, creating a narrative that caused a disruption within the Democratic Party—which the press eagerly followed and elaborated, on release by release. But Putin may have had help in that planning.

Donald Trump denied Russian involvement despite being briefed on the evidence multiple times. Now the White House indicates that Trump may have already known Russia was involved, and that his request for Putin to hack Hillary Clinton’s email was far from a joke.

fall in line and not undermine his authority in anyway, because fucking America can't have doubts about its leadership or have a president with NO FUCKING CREDIBILITY.

Same with his constant claims that the election was rigged...

Why didn't President Obama allow DNI to brief the 56 electors who wanted to be briefed about the Russian interference in the election?

(From December 16, 2016)
NO INTEL BRIEFING FOR ELECTORS, DNI SAYS
http://www.cnn.com/2016/12/16/politics/no-intel-briefing-for-electors-dni-says/


President Obama said "NO" to Intel briefing for the 56 electors who wanted the briefing.

Although it would have been a "long shot"..it is possible that at least 37 electors pledged to Trump might have cast their votes for HRC, if they had been given the briefing.

(In that case, we would be celebrating the presidency of Hillary Clinton tomorrow, instead of that child-raper)
