And I do like the tag of the source :D

"Those seventeen intelligence agencies that usually hate each other -- but in the case of Russian interference in our election -- agreed unanimously? James Clapper is the overseer for all of them. And that "unanimous" part impressed even him. As he testified in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing Thursday morning, Clapper reaffirmed that Russia was involved in trying to disrupt the US Presidential election of 2016.



Senator Jack Redd asked, "Aspects of this Russian hacking was not just disseminating information they had exploited from computers, but also the allegations of fake news sites, fake news stories that were propagated. Is that an accurate -- or is that one aspect of this problem?"
Clapper replied, "This was a multifaceted campaign, so the hacking was only one part of it. And it also entailed classical propaganda, disinformation, fake news."
Reed followed up and asked, "Does that continue?"
Clapper said, "Yes.".

Neither was Pence who seemed very uncomfortable in an interview or many on the Committee by their expressions.

And an interesting tangential fallout to this whole hoo-hah is that ex-CIA director Woolsey who was on Drumpf's transition team just quit, " Immediately ".

If Woolsey, the purveyor of Laurie Mylroie's whacko theory about Saddams links to Saddam, is quitting is that a good or bad thing?

Vlonald is looking more like Tony Abbott on steroids ten times over. I suspect his bright star may fizzle out in less than 140 characters all too soon. The sap hasn't even taken the oath of office yet...
