Trump transition team basically called the CIA liars for concluding that Russia did interfere in the US Election to help Donald Trump win and derail Hillary Clinton’s bid. This election break-in is bigger than Watergate.
Of course, the campaign lied. The CIA never said that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction. That came from the Bush/Cheney administration.
Trump’s Electoral College victory wasn’t one of the biggest in history. In fact, it was the third smallest Electoral College win since 1980. George W. Bush’s victory was smaller. Hillary Clinton’s popular vote lead surged to 2.83 million (2.1%) and counting, according to the Cook Political Report.
John Weaver, who was a senior strategist to Gov. John Kasich’s presidential campaign, hit the Trump team for “publicly mocking our intelligence services, thus de facto defending what happened, only adds to suspicions.”

McClatchy reports that since Trump won the election, he has spoken to Vladimir Putin more than any other world leader. Let that sink in…
It’s safe to say that 17 intelligence agencies can’t be lying or wrong in their assessment that Russia interfered in our elections to help a pro-Putin puppet win. It is shameful that Republican leaders such as Sen. Mitch McConnell downplayed the Russia’s interference into our elections as though it was nothing. He should be investigated and his wife, Elaine Chao, should decline her nomination as Transportation Secretary.
Republican leaders knew Russia was undermining our democracy during the election and they chose to ignore it.

The Russians also hacked the Republican National Committee, but sat on that goldmine because it was Trump they wanted to be elected president.
