"I welcome the announcement that the Special Counsel has finally completed his investigation into Russia’s efforts to interfere in the 2016 elections. Many Republicans have long believed that Russia poses a significant threat to American interests."

My question is why it took him so long to acknowledge that "Russia poses a significant threat to American interests" when he was informed that all US intelligence agencies had been saying the same regarding Russian interference in US elections for several years?

Why wasn't he interested when then-President Obama wanted him to take a stand & defend American interests?



Obama stood up to Russian interference. Now Trump must follow through.

Why is Mr. Trump more interested in defending his own personal interests rather than defending American interests?

Why doesn't he take his role as POTUS more seriously?

He's no longer a producer/host/actor on a Reality TV Show, nor is he a petty dictator of a family business run like his own private fiefdom.
I think that when the indictments fall like rain you will deny the fact that it is happening.

Obama was a traitor to our nation. Who else delivers cash to the Iran mullahs? Seriously I grow weary.

Obama did and does lot's more than that. His main goal is to subvert America. Schooled in the racist bitter soul of a church dark and deep sat in the pews for decades listening to sermons about how the white people hated him, energized by the violence against Jewish nation created by Iran and placed into the most powerful position of the country by using all the pretty words and because he was a black man.

Born and left by his father, he substituted all that hatred towards his own and channeled it into a profoundly flawed view of our nation. Sending the AG to Michael Bowns home who attempted to kill a police officer, pulled back the cops in Ferguson, MO so his minions could burn it down, and gifting billions of shrink wrapped Euros for the Iran Military to pay who ever they wanted.

This was your president. A traitor to the soul of America. And the people fell charmed to his pretty words... while NOW he has "more flexibility" with Russia.

Wish they would lol...I would love for the Dems to start the "impeachment" process. They lost the election, they lost the recount, they lost Mueller report and they'll lose the impeachment proceedings...

Joint Statement from the Department Of Homeland Security and Office of the Director of National Intelligence on Election Security

Release Date: October 7, 2016

DHS and ODNI Seals
For Immediate Release
DHS Press Office
Contact: 202-282-8010

The U.S. Intelligence Community (USIC) is confident that the Russian Government directed the recent compromises of e-mails from US persons and institutions, including from US political organizations. The recent disclosures of alleged hacked e-mails on sites like DCLeaks.com and WikiLeaks and by the Guccifer 2.0 online persona are consistent with the methods and motivations of Russian-directed efforts. These thefts and disclosures are intended to interfere with the US election process. Such activity is not new to Moscow—the Russians have used similar tactics and techniques across Europe and Eurasia, for example, to influence public opinion there. We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.

Some states have also recently seen scanning and probing of their election-related systems, which in most cases originated from servers operated by a Russian company. However, we are not now in a position to attribute this activity to the Russian Government. The USIC and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) assess that it would be extremely difficult for someone, including a nation-state actor, to alter actual ballot counts or election results by cyber attack or intrusion. This assessment is based on the decentralized nature of our election system in this country and the number of protections state and local election officials have in place. States ensure that voting machines are not connected to the Internet, and there are numerous checks and balances as well as extensive oversight at multiple levels built into our election process.

Nevertheless, DHS continues to urge state and local election officials to be vigilant and seek cybersecurity assistance from DHS. A number of states have already done so. DHS is providing several services to state and local election officials to assist in their cybersecurity. These services include cyber “hygiene” scans of Internet-facing systems, risk and vulnerability assessments, information sharing about cyber incidents, and best practices for securing voter registration databases and addressing potential cyber threats. DHS has convened an Election Infrastructure Cybersecurity Working Group with experts across all levels of government to raise awareness of cybersecurity risks potentially affecting election infrastructure and the elections process. Secretary Johnson and DHS officials are working directly with the National Association of Secretaries of State to offer assistance, share information, and provide additional resources to state and local officials.

Agree with everything, except the left will go for impeachment in the house, and they may get it.....they want revenge for the impeachment of clinton......we all know it will not get through the senate (as clinton), but that's not what the dems want, they want trump impeached....and have it on his record......
