With all the hoopla going on between "the border children" and the FBI, we also have another Intelligence Committee hearing that seems to get some alarming info about "Russian" cyber attacks and how the Obama Adminiztration apparently was befuddled and may have done the big choke and gag routine.

Some familiar names from yesteryear are mentioned and some new names.

Apparently the zerObama people issued a stand down order to an operation that was supposed to counter some known Russian cyber attacking.

Nutz 😃

Some familiar people said they were aware of a Russian hack on the DNC as early on as Dec 2015 !!

Also some talk of the problem "going away" with the "next administration" (wonder who that was supposed to be?) 😃

Think anybody is "lying" under oath? 🎃

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

The Obama White House’s chief cyber official testified Wednesday that proposals he was developing to counter Russia’s attack on the U.S. presidential election were put on a “back burner” after he was ordered to “stand down” his efforts in the summer of 2016.

The comments by Michael Daniel, who served as White House “cyber security coordinator” between 2012 and January of last year, provided his first public confirmation of a much-discussed passage in the book, “Russian Roulette: The Inside Story of Putin’s War on America and the Election of Donald Trump,” co-written by this reporter and David Corn, that detailed his thwarted efforts to respond to the Russian attack.
The view that the Obama administration failed to adequately piece together intelligence about the Russian campaign and develop a forceful response has clearly gained traction with the intelligence committee.

Looks like collusion, allowing the enemy to operate freely.

Are yo calling isikoff a liar? Or stating the hearing didn't happen?

What are you alleging? Or is it a lame ass ad hominem dome in the worst drive by fashion?

Yup, they sure screwed up by thinking that Trump was an easy target.

Glass houses.

Maybe 2028??

Didn't Obama stand in front of the White House in 2016 and swear that Russians were not attempting to affect the election?
