Russian Hacking: Was the Election Rigged?

President Obama has searched high and, mostly, low, for the reasons that Hillary Clinton lost the election. He has blamed Fox News, for allegedly promoting “fake news” and now has been calling out Russian meddling for the loss of one hundred ninety-four of two hundred and seven counties that voted for him in either 2008 or 2012.

 

President Obama has suggested that Vladimir Putin wanted Trump to win; and that the liberal media have hinted that the president-elect, Donald Trump, and his campaign team have “ties” to the Russian president.

 

Most Americans review Trump’s defense and security picks, in agreement. While, the advisories will not go easy on anyone, including Russia, retired General James Mattis, who Trump has nominated as the head of defense, has described Russia’s annexation of Crimea as a “severe” threat, one that was underestimated by the Obama White House administration.

 

The media has ignored the reality that Moscow’s possible hacking of the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and John Podesta’s emails were retaliation for Hillary Clinton’s accusations that Russian elections in 2011 were “rigged”, an accusation that highly infuriated Putin. When protests erupted in Russia over the election outcome, Putin blamed Clinton.  

 

“She said they were dishonest and unfair,” Putin had said. He continued to blame Clinton for giving “a signal” to demonstrators “with the support of the U.S. State Department; we need to safeguard ourselves from this interference in our internal affairs,” Putin said. Putin has made it clear that if we mess with his elections, he will mess with ours.

 

Obama knows this, yet continues to involve Russia in American Politics. As Putin sees Clinton as a forceful proponent of “regime change” policies that the Russian leader considers a grave threat to his own survival.” That is why the Russians might have tried to sabotage the Hillary Clinton campaign, not because they see Trump as an ally, but because they felt threatened knowing that there was a high possibility that Hillary Clinton could be in office.

 

Obama’s call for an investigation is mostly viewed as bogus. First of all, the CIA produces only the smallest circumstantial evidence, the evidence that even the New York Times admittedly reports “does not support firm any judgements” to make the charge that Russia really did work to favor Trump. In addition, The FBI is not even on board with the conclusion of hacking.

 

Obama is still getting over from having put himself on the line during the campaign, with all the comments made, and accusations made, telling the BCC, Black Congressional Congress, for instance, “I will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy, if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in this election.” Obama is now laying low and hoping that the Trump Administration will not undo his accomplishments.
