For John, BLUF: And did it on his watch. Shame! Shame! Shame! Nothing to see here; just move along.
From Pajama Media, by Mr Tyler O'Neil, 24 May 2018.
Here are the first two paragraphs:
On Wednesday night, former Director of National Intelligence (DNI) James Clapper argued that Russian meddling in the 2016 election was responsible for Donald Trump's victory over former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. In his book "Facts and Fears: Hard Truths from a Life in Intelligence," Clapper wrote that he had "no doubt" of this.Why should we doubt the former top Intel guy in the Obama Administration? Aside from decades of Democrats telling us these kinds of things just don't happen.
"Of course, the Russian effort affected the outcome. Surprising even themselves, they swung the election to a Trump win," Clapper wrote in his book. "To conclude otherwise stretches logic, common sense, and credulity to the breaking point."
On the other hand, why didn't DNI Clapper and others in the Intel Community know this was going on? Isn't this worse than the 9/11 Intel failure?
And why wasn't something done? That is where investigations should focus.
