The story about Russia hacking the Democrats to help Trump win is the epitome of fake news. It's the new birther movement for the left. There is, literally, no evidence to suggest Russia is behind any of the Wikileaks hacks. The Washington Post is peddling fake news, that is not new, has already been investigated and debunked, and they buried the lead
11 paragraphs down in their story.
Intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin “directing” the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to WikiLeaks, a second senior U.S. official said.
That should have been the end of the sore loser hysteria. Even WaPo admits in their story that there's no evidence to support the theory that Russia was behind the hacking. The FBI
disagrees with the CIA
report's assessment too.
Let's not forget the FBI previously investigated
any Russia/Trump relationship, and found there to be none.
This is also the same Washington Post that just got caught peddling a fake news story
about American media outlets being tied to, or at least puppets of, the Russian government. It was a lie.
The same Washington Post who has a columnist still repeating a fake story
that Sarah Palin's crosshairs map (in 2008 election) causing Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) to be shot in the head.
Now, in addition to the FBI, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (Carly Fiorina is in consideration for this post) also doesn't agree with the CIA report
The overseers of the U.S. intelligence community have not embraced a CIA assessment that Russian cyber attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election, three American officials said on Monday.
While the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) does not dispute the CIA's analysis of Russian hacking operations, it has not endorsed their assessment because of a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, said the officials, who declined to be named.
Emphasis mine. #FakeNews
