CIA is Claiming Russia Hacked Election to Get Trump in the White House

So they didn’t mess with the votes? But that’s what everyone is claiming! They just apparently hacked the DNC’s and Hillary’s emails and gave them to WikiLeaks. Do you think that is wrong or was it information that we needed to know?

The CIA has concluded that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election with the specific intent of helping Donald Trump be elected as president of the United States, it was revealed Friday night.

Intelligence agencies identified people close to the Russian government who obtained thousands of hacked e-mails from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta, The Washington Post reported.

The hackers then funneled the stolen material over to WikiLeaks, which spread the information across the Internet in a sophisticated cyber propaganda campaign.

“It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected,” the paper quoted a senior US official as saying. “That’s the consensus view.”

“These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction,” read the statement from Trump’s transition team. “The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again.’ ”
