Obama cyber chief confirms 'stand down' order against Russian cyberattacks in summer 2016

So basically Obama and his gang allowed the Russians to do their thing, they knew the DNC was hacked many months before that was public, and they then gave up and quit. And we need a special prosecutor to prove Trump was in "collusion with them"? Really? Time for some heavy duty indictments by DOJ.

And to add to this litle gem there is this one that actually confirms it was someone who hacked the DNC and they were NOT russians:

The whole charade is fraying at the edges, even the anti Trump MSM is starting to churn and twist.

    Though the article itself isn't all that great, I would simply add to the subject matter that then-head of the DNC, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz was at the head of this. She employed several Pakistani IT guys who were sketchy at best and then continued to allow them access to the sensitive Congressional networks after the FBI terminated their security clearance.

    One article here: https://www.forbes.com/sites/frankmin...

    The real key here is that Obama told our own counter-espionage people to back down because he knew they would find out all kinds of embarrassing things about the Democrats' involvement in shady dealings and ruin Hillary's chance at the Presidency - among many others.

      Agree with your point about finding things out that would be embarrassing to the Dems. But since everyone knew that Hildabeast would be our next prez, this whole thing could be played down by her administration.

        Bingo. And that's precisely why the Dems are dragging out this Mueller investigation: they can't afford to have the investigation into the Uranium One deal or Hillary's email server come back up to the top of people's minds going into the elections.

          I am not sure that this will not all be covered by the secret investigation.

            Not sure what you mean. The current special counsel consists of Democrat sympathizers. They know there is nothing to this investigation because the only thing they had to start with in the first place was a fake dossier and a complicit FISA judge! Of all the indictments handed down so far, only Manafort's might stick and that one is for things he was being looked into more than ten years ago. The other charges are the result of questioning someone eighteen times about the same thing looking for discrepancies in the testimony so they can charge them either with lying or obstruction - nothing that actually pertains to any type of alleged "collusion".

            No, the current Mueller-led special team isn't going to look into Hillary's email nor the Uranium One deal. Why? Because several of the people on the special counsel - including Mueller - were involved! Mueller himself was head of the FBI during the Uranium One deal. He signed off on it. They would be investigating themselves!

            In my opinion, the Democrats are doing what they always do: playing politics by weaponizing the bureaucracy. The Republicans ought to be more savvy and DEMAND that Mueller's investigation either show some real evidence or shut down. And they need to do it before the elections so that they have enough time to turn up the heat on all the revelations from the recent IG report. There is enough in there to sink a lot of current Dems and enough to create guilt by association for the elections. Instead, the leadership especially is sitting on their hands pretending they can't do anything or that they have full faith in Mueller's team or some such nonsense.

              "Q-ANON~ Darkness Will Come to LIGHT…# 35000 Sealed Indictments # Massive Arrest # Suicide Week…Future Proves the PAST~"
              Go watch some of the breakdowns of the Q Anon posts and you will see how Sessions is going around the who Demcratic machine and Congress and using the DOJ to do what it is supposed to do.The Mueller thing is a circus designed to allow them to focus and make up all the stuff they want, all flawed material that could not survive a court challenge but that COULD be used in an impeachment. No matter, they know a heck of a lot about people that we have suspected, and it should all come out soon, before Mid Term elections. Trump uses Twitter and Social Media as it is the only media not controlled by the Left.

                Here is a page to try, though there are hundreds, and I cannot say all is fact or true, nor that there are not Left wing infiltrators posing as Q Anon people. Key thing to remmebr is that most Republicans are really Republicrats and are all one party, why do you think nothing has been done? Is Ryan such a useless buffoon? Is he just a con job, playing a Republican, and really not? Did you see the little tiff on the floor a couple days ago?

    I do not trust a single thing that this article says. The article's author is co-author of the book being promoted. There is nothing whatsoever offered as evidence that anything being claimed is true. These people have been lying to the public for decades and this is likely more of the same. I do not know what the purpose is in publishing this article other than possibly trying to stir up publicity to sell books, but based on the history of the people involved it could just as well be an attempt to derail real investigation into the traitorous activity of the Democratic Party and by Hitlery Clinton during the 2016 campaign.

      All true, I am not arguing that point. However, it may have some nefarious purpose but here are some others:

      and questions:

      Notice, it is NOT in any MSM (I dont think Yahoo qualifies, but dufus dude seems to have added nothing, just copied others, so...) I don't trust any of them either, but their house of cards will fall....

        I know, nick, and my comments are not intended as any reflection on you ;^)
        However, one point to be made is that stories like this are spread widely without any of the 'publishers' doing any due diligence into the veracity of the story they are just copying.
        As a result we can't count on any one them, and, imo, this is being done on purpose by the MSM in order to discredit the entire form of internet media. We have to be very diligent and demand better, reliable, unbiased sources of information. Bloggers have to realize that by echoing stories without verification they are helping to destroy their own sites' credibility.

          I think there has been quite a number of reports on the questionable actions of the Hussein WH and Clinton in the assassination of the American Ambassador in Benghazi.

          What is your problem with this publication? I am not familiar with the author and even though he may be trying to use existing information to his advantage, we know enough about Benghazi by now to decide it wasn't what the Hussein WH was selling (e.g. Muslim outrage over some cartoons).

            Yahoo has a terrible record of misleading and biased articles, imo. This looks to be another one. I think they are still desperate to get traction on the Russia manipulation story and here they are digging in the trash to find another report without any objective evidence for the headline, just hearsay. I don't believe a word that comes from the mouths of ex-administration "officials".

          Freedom, no problem, I am just trying to get real data on things we have suspected to be true, which, as you know, is such a hard thing when everyone has figured out propaganda rules the day, and the minds.

    Regarding the linked yahoo article. More fake news from Yahoo. That looting statist turd just wants publicity to sell his book and yahoo's liberal propagandists just want anything they can twist to smear Trump.

      I'm not so sure all fake, maybe twisted but the observation that there is no Trump involvement, really kills all the efforts, the lead article is a stake through their black flabby hearts. I agree this dude is not on the good side of things, and is just shilling, but a few drops of truth are useful in these times.
