The United States intelligence community is so virtuous that it never spies on foreign governments or attempts to meddle in the politics of other nations, right?
And those intelligence sources would never fabricate stories about other nations spying on the United States and interfering with its political process, right?
So, we should all believe the claims of outgoing president Barack Obama and all his Democratic cronies and pals that Russia interfered with the U.S. election and helped Donald Trump’s campaign against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, right?
Give me a break . . .
Produce the evidence, Barack.
That’s what the Russians are saying, while flatly denying the accusations, calling them “baseless and inappropriate,” according to a CBC report.
As the CBC report points out, there has been “no specific, persuasive proof.”
But Obama is talking tough today (Friday, Dec. 16), saying the U.S. will retaliate against Russia “at a time and place of our own choosing.”
I have to wonder if Barack and company are hoping the electoral college voters will fall for it all, and deny Trump the votes he won.
Naw . . . The Democrats crowd wouldn’t stoop to such levels, right? No dirty tricks from them.
Message to Donald Trump: If a foreign nation were able to directly interfere with the U.S. election process, then heads should roll, figuratively speaking, in the American intelligence community — if not in the White House. That should be one of your first priorities: fire the incompetent people drawing pay cheques for defending the nation against such forms of attack.
And, of course, investigate if any American intelligence officials and politicians have ever attempted to interfere in the political process of foreign nations, and fire them — if not have them thrown in jail.
