Comey to Trump, “no credible evidence that Russia influenced your election”
John Brennan, the Director of the CIA, takes his marching orders from President Barack Hussein Obama,
In telephone conversations with Donald Trump, FBI Director James Comey assured the President Elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent US Presidential Election by hacking the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and the e-Mails of John Podesta, the Chairman of Hillary Clinton’s Presidential campaign.
What is more, Mr. Comey told Donald Trump that James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, agreed with this FBI assessment.
The only member of the US intelligence community who was ready to assert that the Russians sanctioned the hacking was John Brennan, the Director of the CIA, according to sources who were briefed on Director Comey’s conversations with President Elect Trump.
“And Brennan takes his marching orders from President Obama,” the sources quoted Director Comey as saying.
In Mr. Comey’s view, the leaks to the NY-T’s and the W-P alleging that the Russians tried, and perhaps succeeded in tilting the election to Donald Trump were a Democratic Party effort to delegitimize Donald Trump’s victory.
During their phone conversations, Mr. Comey informed Mr. Trump that the FBI had been alert for the past year to the danger that the Russians would try to cause mischief during the US Presidential election.
However, whether the Russians did so remains an open question, Mr. Comey said, adding that it was just as likely that the hacking was done by people who had no direct connection to the Russian government.
The Big Q: Why would President Putin would have preferred dealing with Donald Trump, who vows a major military buildup, over Hillary Clinton, who would have continued Barack Hussein Obama’s cautious policies toward the Kremlin?
The Big A: He would not.
Trumpeting for Trump
