I have to admit to you guys, I am in the dark groping around trying to see my way to begin this report. It is as if the Intelligence Community is very educated in creative writing. They know how to blah, blah, and blah, but they don’t know how to be straight shooters with the truth. So, sometimes one can have an education, but not know how to put it to good use. In this NSA/CIA/FBI/Intelligence report on the alleged “Russian hacking” story, let me tell you first of all what Senator Lindsey Graham is saying, then you will know how much trouble we are really in.
Graham said: “Obama threw pebbles at Russia, but we need to be THROWING ROCKS.” So, in other words, what Obama did to Russia in retaliation for allegedly hacking the US just was not enough. One can gather from Graham’s words he wants much more done to Russia and pronto.
NSA Director Clapper stopped short of saying the purported Russian hacking was “an act of war.” So it sounds to me like the big guns are coming out aimed at Russia. I have already reported the following changes in the story from last week to yesterday. They are:
1. The first hacking report came out quietly in October of 2016…not much was said.
2. Now the new report says Russia was also hacking us in November of this year.
3. The hacking was ordered by Putin, and, if fact, the report says Russians celebrated after Trump won the election, as they were so happy they beat the United States.
4. Putin ordered the hack, but then a “third party” stepped in to leak the information to WIKILEAKS. That is why Julian Assange said, “WIKILEAKS did not receive leaks from Russia or any state party.
See what I mean about the wording and the truth being eaten alive to never be whole again….I cannot find it anymore. In other news, Ex-CIA Director Woolsey just quit Trump’s transition team. But let me go further into the report.
This is a very important video:
Intel officials are certain about Russia’s role in the hack
Jan. 05, 2017 – 4:03 – The witnesses testified to the Senate that the interference was multifaceted, but found no evidence that votes were tampered with; Catherine Herridge goes in-depth for ‘Special Report’
OK, the positive thing is said in the above: “votes were not tampered with.”
The motivation of Putin will be presented next week. However, it was multifaceted, including the use of “fake news.”
Here is something scarey: “They want a forceful response, and they have enough to go on.”
The CIA has identified Russian officials who fed material hacked from the Democratic National Committee and party leaders to WikiLeaks at the direction of Russian President Vladimir Putin through third parties, according to a new U.S. intelligence report, senior U.S. officials said on Thursday.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Central Intelligence Agency and others have concluded that the Russian government escalated its efforts from discrediting the U.S. election process to assisting President-elect Donald Trump’s campaign.
The intelligence assessment was presented to President Barack Obama on Thursday and will be briefed to Trump on Friday. Trump has rejected the broad intelligence community’s assessment that Russia staged cyber attacks during the election campaign to undermine Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.
Russia has rejected the hacking allegations.
“By October, it had become clear that the Russians were trying to help the Trump campaign,” said one official familiar with the full report speaking on the condition of anonymity because the complete version is Top Secret.
12186/9-things-you-need-know-a bout-intelligence-joshua-yasme h LINK: Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, NSA Director Mike Rogers, and Defense Undersecretary for Intelligence Marcel Lettre collectively confirmed that senior-most officials from the Russian government were involved in the cyber attacks directed against the U.S. during the presidential election. In a joint statement issued before the hearing even began, the intelligence community’s commander officers called Russia “a full-scope cyber actor that poses a major threat to U.S. Government, military, diplomatic, commercial, and critical infrastructure and key resource networks.” The statement continued: “We assess that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized the recent election-focused data thefts and disclosures, based on the scope and sensitivity of the targets.” In other words, Russian President Vladimir Putin likely had a hand in the cyber attacks.
- The Russians launched an aggressive propaganda campaign to undermine American democracy in tandem with their cyber attacks. “I don’t think we’ve ever encountered a more aggressive or direct campaign to interfere in our election process,” stated Clapper. The Kremlin’s “multi-faceted campaign” consisted of spreading “classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news,” and peddling one-sided stories via state-news site RT. “Of course, RT, which is heavily supported by — funded by — the Russian government, was very, very active in promoting a particular line, point of view, disparaging our system, our alleged hypocrisy about human rights, et cetera, et cetera,” the director of national intelligence (DNI) asserted. “Whatever crack they could fissure, they could find in our tapestry, if you will, they would exploit it.”
- Clapper and his colleagues insisted that they’re more certain of Russia’s role in the election interference today than ever before. “Our assessment is now resolute,” emphasized the DNI. According to top intelligence officials, the U.S. has detected mounting evidence of Russia’s involvement in the months since Clapper issued the first disturbing report about election hacking in October.
- Russia’s election interference was unlike anything we’ve seen before, according to Clapper. “Mr. Clapper characterized the suspected Russian interference as transcending the boundaries of traditional espionage—in which the U.S. engages routinely—and called it an ‘activist’ attempt to subvert U.S. democracy,” reports The Wall Street Journal.
- After hearing Clapper’s assessments behind closed doors, McCain called Russia’s hacking “an unprecedented attack on our democracy,” claiming that if the Kremlin managed to actually affect the election results it would be tantamount to “an attack on the United States of America.”
- Intelligence officials confirmed that other U.S. foes have the same cyber offensive capabilities as Russia. NSA Director Rogers admitted this inconvenient fact to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) after being asked about China and Iran.
- The intelligence community “will ascribe a motivation” for Russia’s cyber attacks in next week’s report. The report will be available to Congress and the public. According to Clapper, the Russian state had “more than one motivation.”
- The New York Times.The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a separate panel discussion on potential options for a US response against Russia. The closed-door meeting included “senior officials from the State Department, Treasury Department and Department of Homeland Security,” according to The New York Times.
In Conclusion, I hope the above explains the factual analysis of what the powers that be are saying as of now on the alleged “Russian hacking”…to be honest with you, I am caught somewhere in between. I am so glad I have a leader in President-elect Trump whom I can turn to for the truth. I will follow his lead, and that is WHAT WE ALL SHOULD DO AT THIS POINT. He is well informed, and I feel Trump is a fellow truthseeker. Lets pray for the best, which IS, in my opinion no war with Russia.
