Two senior Democratic lawmakers with access to classified intelligence on Thursday accused Russia of "making a serious and concerted effort to influence the U.S. election," a charge that appeared aimed at putting pressure on the Obama administration to confront Moscow... "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," the statement said. "We believe that orders for the Russian intelligence agencies to conduct such actions could come only from very senior levels of the Russian government..."

Washington Post: Key lawmakers accuse Russia of campaign to disrupt U.S. election

This just in...


White House officials have repeatedly insisted that they are awaiting the outcome of a formal FBI investigation, even though U.S. intelligence are said to have concluded with "high confidence" that Russia was responsible for the DNC breach and other attacks. The White House hesitation has become a source of frustration to critics, including senior members of Congress.


Meanwhile, U.S. intelligence officials are reportedly investigating whether Donald Trump's foreign policy adviser "opened up private communications with senior Russian officials -- including talks about the possible lifting of economic sanctions if the Republican nominee becomes president."

Looks like 4chan's prediction is coming true...

Thank God the U.S. doesn't have a policy of trying to influence foreign elections through covert means.

You can say that again.


Russia is bleeding cash at an alarming rate.

After almost two years in recession, the country's rainy day fund has shrunk to just $32.2 billion this month, according to the Russian Finance Ministry. It was $91.7 billion in September 2014, just before oil prices started to collapse.

And it's getting worse. Analysts expect the fund will shrink to just $15 billion by the end of this year and dry up completely soon after that.

"At the current rate, the fund would be depleted in mid-2017, perhaps a few months later," Ondrej Schneider, chief economist at the Institute of International Finance, wrote in a note this week.

The government's reserve fund is designed to cover shortfalls in the national budget at times of low oil and gas revenues.

Russia's 2016 budget is based on the assumption the country would be able to sell its oil for $50 per barrel.

But the average oil price in the first eight months of the year was less than $43 per barrel. Oil now makes up just 37% of all government revenues, compared to roughly 50% just two years ago.

The government will reveal next year's budget after a parliamentary election this weekend.

This slump means the government is having to tap the rainy day fund again and again. The government indicated that once the reserves are depleted, it may have to turn to its welfare fund. Kremlin says the welfare fund has over $70 billion in it. The fund is not intended to cover budget shortfalls, but rather to finance future pensions and large-scale investment projects.

Putin needs someone in the oval office who is willing to remove economic sanctions or Russia is going to see a USSR-part-2 economic collapse by next year.

Liars tell the lies created by an organisation (US intelligence community) of liars to justify the military industrial complex and perpetual, never ending war.

Wow. Never could have seen that coming.

So let me get this straight. You are critical of the United States for interfering with other countries elections, but not when another nation interferes with your own country's election process?

Interesting set of principles you have there.

More believable than half the other things I see on the front page.

Russia likes Trump because he is not very smart and he seems to like Putin a LOT. Trump made up the fact that they spoke. Trump thought Putin called him 'brilliant' and stated that in the press, though Putin was actually trying to convey 'colorful'.

Trump has money connections to Russia.

I am not sure that the 4chan post is real, but I do know Russia would want someone to win who they can manipulate. I'm sure they would try to cause that to happen.

And from where did he get the money to rig the election? I bet American politics is the most expensive to influence.

Aren't all of Hillary's overt foreign donors more of a concern than the Russians? I mean talk about foreign influence. It's all right there in front of our noses. No need to pose wild theories and false allegations.

wanna know who the culprits are....


just think about this little nugget that's cached in the text:

The White House hesitation has become a source of frustration to critics, including senior members of Congress.



the WH hesitation is because the WH is ordering the dozen or so Black Muslim Brotherhood men (who issue policy directives, behind sub-Department cover) to conduct these activities of hacking into the DNC & getting slimy behaviors aired into the public domain...
the WH feels a hands-off position will keep the investigators off the trail....

the 'senior Democrat leaders' are robotic Yes-Men, diverting attention to Russia & the possibility that the Obama offenses to tick off Russia will completely backfire if-When the Sane-One, Pres. Trump throws all the bums out of DC and FUMIGATES the former HW turned Rainbow-Castle

I dislike Hillary and the rest of the crooks who worked with the Saudis. Not sure how you can categorically state that these are false allegations though. Do you have intel we don't?

Hey if you don't like the benefits that gives you as an American, feel free to go to some hell hole in the middle east.

What? You think Russia spends its last dime on the US? Sure why not, their soldiers don't need food, their teachers and administrative staff don't need a salary... wow. Great plan.

The Russian economy isn't entirely dependent on the Russian state. No more than the United States is entirely dependent on US government to employ people. Putin is smart enough to realize if he doesn't fix the economic situation, his version of Russia is done and bankrupt.
