In an op-ed for the Baltimore Sun, two former, high-ranking intelligence officials tore apart the Obama administration’s vocal and as-yet unproven claim that the Russians interfered with the U.S. election — and hacked systems of the Democratic establishment — to ensure a Donald Trump win.

Stephen Lendman notes the ongoing Fake News from the NYTimes and other presstitutes re “Russian hacking”

Media Hype Fake News Report Claiming Russian US Election Hacking

by Stephen Lendman

Media scoundrels are all over the new CIA/FBI/NSA report, supporting it like gospel, disgracefully claiming Putin ordered America’s election hacked to help Trump defeat Hillary – despite no evidence in the contents proving it.

In a statement released to reporters, Trump said “(w)hile Russia, China, other countries, outside groups and people are consistently trying to break through the cyber infrastructure of our governmental institutions, businesses and organizations including the Democrat National Committee, there was absolutely no effect on the outcome of the election including the fact that there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines.”

Media hype barely stopped short of suggesting Putin declared war on America, a disgraceful example of hyperbolic misrepresentation of reality.

The militantly anti-Russia, anti-Putin, anti-Trump New York Times headlined “Putin Led a Complex Cyberattack Scheme to Aid Trump, Report Finds,” saying:

The report was “a virtually unheard-of, real-time revelation by the American intelligence agencies that undermined the legitimacy of the president who is about to direct them…”

That’s as clear as it gets to America’s self-styled newspaper of record calling Trump’s election illegitimate – a seditious act surrounded by a body of Big Lies.

Previous articles explained no hacking occurred. Information was leaked by one or more Democrat party insiders, angry over Hillary stealing her party’s nomination.

Blaming Russia, Putin specifically, is part of bashing its sovereign independence and leadership. Virtually everything reported through official channels, regurgitated by media scoundrels, are lies, damn lies and Big Lies.

The Times: Trump “issued a written statement that appeared to concede some Russian involvement” in America’s election.

Fact: False! His statement, quoted above, said nothing of the sort, stating “there was no tampering whatsoever with voting machines” – meaning no Russian attempt to hack America’s election or influence its results. Trump believes it. So should everyone. Nothing disproves it.

The neocon/CIA house organ Washington Post headlined “Declassified report says Putin ‘ordered’ effort to undermine faith in US election and help Trump,” covering the same misinformation and Big Lies as The Times and other media scoundrels.
