Former DHS Official: ‘It’s Not About Leaks, It’s About Protecting Russia’

If you haven’t seen this ABC scoop on election interference, take three minutes and get up to speed. In thirteen words, the story is that Russia’s narrative is Trump’s narrative and “acting” director Wolf is protecting them both.

ABC News:

According to the draft bulletin, analysts determined with “high confidence” that “Russian malign influence actors are likely to continue denigrating presidential candidates through allegations of poor mental or physical health to influence the outcome of the 2020 election.”

“High confidence means what it sounds like — that they are highly confident that their assessment is accurate and they don’t use that language very often,” Elizabeth Neumann, a former assistant secretary of Homeland Security during the Trump administration, told ABC News.

“We are hearing concerns being raised publicly that, in this administration, intelligence community reporting is being modified or blocked for political reasons — or to not anger the president,” said John Cohen, an ABC News contributor and the former undersecretary for intelligence at DHS under President Barack Obama.

“By blocking information from being released that describes threats facing the nation,” Cohen continued, “it undermines the ability of the public and state and local authorities to work with the federal government to counteract the threat.”

The Republican party has lost all sense of decency if they’re going along with Russian interference to portray a statesman with a stutter as mentally defective. But that’s where they are in their desperation to hang onto power.

Trump needs to move to Russia and stay there for the rest of his life…to avoid prison in the USA!
