Uh-oh! The polls are heading in Trump’s favor. The Dems are already trying to spin a Trump win as ‘illegitimate’. Are we going to see a re-run of Election 2000?
Dems are quick to blame the Russians:
The top Democrats on Congress’ intelligence committees boldly blamed Russian intelligence agencies for a series of hacks designed to influence the US presidential election.
California Sen. Dianne Feinstein and California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking members on the Senate and House Intelligence Committees, respectively, released a joint statement on Thursday calling out Russian President Vladimir Putin and his government.
“Based on briefings we have received, we have concluded that the Russian intelligence agencies are making a serious and concerted effort to influence the US election,” the Democrats said. “At the least, this effort is intended to sow doubt about the security of our election and may well be intended to influence the outcomes of the election — we can see no other rationale for the behavior of the Russians.”
Unlike past hedged comments from US lawmakers and officials, the statement was definitive and more forceful than any previous assertions about Russian hacking from top-level government sources. And in tying the hacking directly to Putin and/or senior levels of Russian government, the Democrats were more forceful than the administration or Congress has been in the past.
“We believe that orders for the Russian intelligence agencies to conduct such actions could come only from very senior levels of the Russian government,” Schiff and Feinstein said. “We call on President Putin to immediately order a halt to this activity. Americans will not stand for any foreign government trying to influence our election. We hope all Americans will stand together and reject the Russian effort.”

Hold up a minute. Let’s not all go to conspiracy-ville just yet.
Remember THIS guy? (image credit: Getty) For those too young, he was Nelson Mandela. He was a big hero in South Africa for reconciling race relations there. Kind of a big deal. Obama took selfies at his funeral.
He liked the idea of voter id. So either HE’s racist or ID isn’t.
Why is it the left goes absolutely mental whenever we bring up Voter id?
Remember: ‘THERE IS NO FRAUD’. (PAY NO ATTENTION TO All THOSE DEAD VOTERS. Certainly not because they’re stuffing ballot boxes, is it?)
They don’t seem to mind that we can register to vote BY TEXT, do they?
And yet if voter fraud is so ‘impossible’ why is the LEFT now getting their panties in a wad over the EVIL Russians Sooper-Sekrit Evil Plot™?
What does the PRESIDENT have to say about such tinfoil-hat theories?
We’re glad you asked! Here he is!
Will Al Gore be heading to court looking for revenge over the hanging chad nonsense?
