John McCain Joining Senate Democrats To Look Into Possible Russian Interference Of 2016 Presidential Election
Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has joined congressional Democrats to form a bi-partisan group that is calling for an investigation into whether or not Russia had intervened in the 2016 presidential election that ended with Donald Trump going to the White House.
The allegation is that it was Russia that was the mastermind behind the Wikileaks information dumps that revealed corruption, media-collusion, and dishonest tactics on the part of the Democratic Party.
Wikileaks’ Julian Assange has denied the allegations, claiming that the information dumps were not even the result of a hack, but the result of an insider within the Democratic Party who was feeding the information to the cyber-hacking organization.
Despite this, the Left has been furiously pushing the notion that it was Russia behind the leaks, in a seeming attempt to draw attention away from what was actually revealed, as well as to try to shift the blame for the election loss away from Hillary Clinton.
To that end, multiple Main Stream Media sources have been quoting a “top CIA analyst” who is claiming to have information that proves that the Kremlin was behind the attacks, yet so far they have failed to provide the identity or any verifiable information that the source is real or telling the truth.
The CIA itself has refused to comment on the situation, which is strange considering, if the Left’s argument is accurate, there has been a breach of national security.
One would think that the intelligence community would go on the record with their findings if the information they supposedly had was so iron-clad that multiple news outlets were running with it without verifying the original sources themselves.
Even Snopes’ Brooke Binkowski wrote a piece on the fact-checking website, suggesting that the allegations against Russia were true, and that they are based on the theory that the RNC and DNC were both “hacked,” and yet only information from the Democrats was leaked.
This is again overlooking the fact that, even if someone obtained information on both parties, it was the Democrats who were having secret, off the record dinners with the press, feeding candidate Hillary Clinton questions prior to the debates, and giving approval as to what information publications like the New York Times would be allowed to run.
The corruption and media-collusion was on full display, and it is small wonder that the Left would rather scream about the source rather than the content of the emails themselves.
Even CNN, during the campaign, went so far as to caution their viewers that it may be against the law for them to look at the Wikileaks information dumps themselves, and that they should rely on the news outlets, such as CNN, to tell them what is in the Podesta emails.
John McCaine, “the Maverick” of the Republican Party, said that a Russian nation, interfering with an American election, should be considered an act of war.
“When you attack a country, it’s an act of war…
…We have to make sure that there is a price to pay so that we can perhaps persuade Russians to stop this kind of attacks on our very fundamentals of democracy.”
The bi-partisan congressional group released a joint statement on their purpose:
“Democrats and Republicans must work together, and across the jurisdictional lines of the Congress, to examine these recent incidents thoroughly and devise comprehensive solutions to deter and defend against further cyber-attacks.”
What do you think about John McCain joining Democrats to look into whether or not Donald Trump was elected legitimately or as a result of some grand Russian cyber-hacking conspiracy?
