'NO EVIDENCE RUSSIA INFLUENCING VOTER TALLIES IN...50 STATES' ? US EX-INTEL CHIEF

"Can we agree that the Russians attempted to influence the outcome of the election?” asked Senator John Neely Kennedy (R-Louisiana) during the Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism hearing on Monday.

Yes," Clapper and Yates replied.

"Did they succeed?" asked Kennedy.

“We could not make that call,” replied Clapper.

"The only thing we said was we saw no evidence of influencing voter tallies in any of the 50 states, but we were not in a position to judge whether ? what actual outcome on the election," added Clapper.

Kennedy then asked "Have you ever leaked?"

“Not wittingly or knowingly,” replied Clapper.

"Classified or unclassified?," said Kennedy.

“Unclassified is not leaking," remarked Clapper as laughter erupted in the room.

When it came to the January 6 report that accused Russia of “influence campaign” during the US presidential election, some “two dozen or so” handpicked analysts from three agencies – the CIA, the FBI and the NSA – compiled the information, Clapper told the subcommittee, headed by Senators Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D-Rhode Island). All 17 intelligence agencies were consulted in some form ahead of the report’s release, and Clapper said he was “not aware of anyone who dissented or disagreed.”

“The most important thing is to educate the electorate as to what the Russian objective is,” Clapper said. “There needs to be more done in the way of sanctions to the Russians or any other government that attempts to interfere with our election process.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, at the end of the day, presenting sound and fury, signifying nothing, Clapper's proof that the Russians attempted to influence the outcome of the 2016 election is....zip, nada, nothing!!

This was simply a witchhunt, with Russia as the victim, in order to allow more demonisation against it.

And BTW, it is Clapper who needs to be educated on evidence and documentation of said evidence, which he absolutely did not have!!
