No, I do not. Can you offer any specific denials. And, since we are discussing, it would be really great if you could quote me denying it.

 

Or, were you addressing someone else since I do not have a "hero" - well, Peewee Reese, but that was a while ago.

The President is not posting here.

 

Who here denied Russian attempts to influence our elections. Hey, I'm even willing to concede that they hacked the DNC computers but we'll never know. Apparently the DNC had done something they didn't want the FBI to know.

A good point. And, history shows that we did have an effect on other nations where Russia did not have an effect on the outcomes of our elections.

The CIA told CNN that Pompeo stood by a January report by the U.S. intelligence community that concluded the Russian government directed a campaign to influence the election. “The intelligence assessment with regard to Russian election meddling has not changed,” the agency told the network.

 

I'm not convinced "beyond a reasonable doubt" by the intelligence assessment. 

 

That report does not imply that their assessment is factual or is that it is certain. Their judgements might be wrong.

 

Haven't we been down this road before? 

 

I remember Colin Powell presenting clearer evidence about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction. At least he had photos. Later it was all blamed on "faulty intelligence". Yet, no one has been held accountable.

 

I went to the bookstore and was browsing through Donna Brazile's new book. It seemed like she was devoting most of the book to the Russian meddling. The book afterall, is titled "Hacks".

I put the book back on the shelf and went to the magazine section. After selecting 'The New Yorker' magazine containing an article about Tulsi Gabbard, I went back to read some more of Brazile's Hacks. She had more details in her book about the alleged hacking than I've come across so far. She gave dates, times and put things in chronological order. I thought, if anyone is going to convince me "beyond a reasonable doubt" it would be her memoirs. I hope she makes a convincing case. Even though Donna Brazile is not the most honest person, I'll give her a chance to convince me "beyond a reasonable doubt".

So any of those accusations somehow make what the Russians did alright, and we should just forget about it Right? It's really easy to spot a trump supporter.
