Today at 9:30 am, senior U.S. intelligence officials face questions at a Senate hearing that will be dominated by the intelligence community's assessment that Russia meddled in the presidential election to help Donald Trump win. Participating will be James R. Clapper, Jr., Director Of National Intelligence. Marcel J. Lettre II, Under Secretary Of Defense For Intelligence and Admiral Michael S. Rogers, USN, Commander, United States Cyber Command. The Armed Services Committee's cyber threats hearing on Thursday comes a day before the president-elect is to be briefed by the CIA and FBI directors — along with the director of national intelligence — on the investigation into Russia's alleged hacking efforts. Trump has been deeply critical of their findings, even appearing to back controversial WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange's contention that Russia did not provide him with hacked Democratic emails. The committee's session is the first in a series aimed at investigating purported Russian cyber-attacks against U.S. interests and developing defenses sturdy enough to blunt future intrusions. "We will obviously be talking about the hacking, but the main thing is the whole issue of cybersecurity," the committee's Republican chairman, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, said ahead of the hearing. "Right now we have no policy, no strategy to counter cyberattacks." More importantly, however, the hearing comes hours after Reuters reported overnight that U.S. intelligence agencies obtained what they considered to be conclusive evidence after the November election that Russia provided hacked material from the Democratic National Committee to WikiLeaks. However, in the latest change of the narrative, this time the allegation is that Russia provided the hacked data through a third party, three U.S. officials said on Wednesday. Wikieaks was quick to highlight that according to the report, US officials admitted that the Wikileaks "source" was not Russia, and that the goal posts now shifted to the source's source. So does this finally prove that Russia is not behind the fake story of them hacking the election for President Trump, since US officials are now admitting that Wikileaks source has no direct ties to Russia? Now it looks like US officials now believe that Russia is not the source of Wikileaks, but they are likely not willing to state the fact that multiple intelligence officials and DNC staffer Seth Rich leaked the information personally to Julian Assange and Wikileaks. It's funny though how John McCain stated that we have no policy regarding cyberattacks, so how can they even claim anyone hacked the DNC or Podesta's emails when the government has no policy regarding hacks and cyber attacks. Of course they arent mentioning how the Obama DHS has been caught hacking election databases in multiple states, because if these politicians and the Obama administration admitted that part...Then it would kill the whole fake narrative that Russia hacked our election. It seems everyone in Washington and the mainstream media are just running around in circles like kids who can't find exactly what they want at the local toy store. It also seems like disagreement in the US intelligence community is still taking place, which goes to show once again no proof exist when it comes to the claim that Russia hacked the election for President Trump.
