Russia Has Had “No Repercussions!!” – Senator Angus King

Angus King blasted the heads of the DNI, CIA and FBI, and by implication their leader, Donald Trump, for having imposed no repercussions upon Russia for the cyber-attacks on our voter rolls and our elections.

“Director Coats, you have a stunning statement in your report: ‘[The Russians] will work to use cyber operations to achieve strategic objectives unless they face repercussions for their cyber operations,’” King said, reading Coats’ own intelligence assessment of Russian hacking. “Right now there are none! Is that not the case? There are no repercussions! We have no doctrine of deterrence.”

I doubt there is a way to fail quicker and more clearly as president of the United States than to fail to even attempt to protect the country, even attempt to secure our independence on the global stage, even attempt to defend ourselves, or attempt to hand out our own aggressive actions against another state, only ours principled.

Of course, I think we all know why this hasn’t happened.

No surprise there! Russia, like Trump’s base, is fully defended by his majesty, the Clown President of the US! The rest of our country be damned.
