CIA saw Putin's instructions to hack election

Daily Beast - When Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr., CIA Director John Brennan and FBI Director James B. Comey all went to see Donald Trump together during the presidential transition, they told him conclusively that they had “captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation” to hack the 2016 presidential election, according to a report in The Washington Post. The intel bosses were worried that he would explode but Trump remained calm during the carefully choreographed meeting. “He was affable, courteous, complimentary,” Clapper told the Post. Comey stayed behind afterward to tell the president-elect about the controversial Steele dossier, however, and that private meeting may have been responsible for the animosity that would eventually lead to Trump firing the director of the FBI.

Yep, when three high officials, at least two of whom should be doing hard time, issue a dire warning that not only lacks evidence* but happens to buttress their careers beyond all imagining, my first instinct as a reporter is to say "The story writes itself! Run it and tack on my name!"

Apart from the gaping story holes in the vacant shell game of Russiagate, why isn't anyone asking why Putin, who's now the Root of All Evil, was a suitable partner for the War on Terror? Some of the same characters who are now accusing** him of doing what America has repeatedly been shown*** to have done around the world, were fine with his overwhelming violence against civilians in Chechnya. The carpet bombing of a major city, Grozny, for the first time since WWII? "OK." Allegedly subverting a plutocratic abortion of an election, both of whose candidates provoked open disgust? "HEY, what's the big idea?"

For decades, the question of 'how is collapse going to arrive in the US?' has smoldered along. Now we know - a tight phalanx of easily-remedied societal problems escorted by a circus elephant of paranoia and delusion. Led by shirtless ringmaster Vladimir Putin, of course.

The only subversion of the 2016 election was by the DNC against the Sanders Campaign. Case fucking closed.

* belief is not evidence.
** not proving, mind you, because that requires evidence.
*** and occasionally admitted to.

And the CIA never lies--never, ever, ever. We should trust them at all times, citizen. They are the guardians of democracy, even if they have literally millions upon millions of classified documents they never let us see, and have assassinated world leaders and overthrown democratically elected governments all over the globe.
