Sorry, I don't understand what you are specifically angry with. Is there something inaccurate in what I said.

I couldn't give to s-its if you understood what I was angry about or not. My comments are mostly for the benefit of others reading the garbage that flows from your demented mind. I'd given up helping you understand a very long time ago.

I guess the answer to the last question is

Just consider how Clinton supporters saw Comey's declarations as undermining Clinton and multiply that a hundred fold if Obama had begun an open investigation into Russian support of Trump.

I've heard that talking point. :roll:

What did they do when they found out about it in 2014 long before the election, long before anyone even knew who would be our candidates? The President doesn't run National Intelligence agencies. Do you have another excuse?

I guess you would need to show me what they knew and how they knew it would be a specific threat in 2016. We know that cyber warfare was being watched. We know they were aware of problems in other countries. We know they were watching the Russians. We know they dropped the ball.

But, to suddenly raise the issue of Russian influnece and pursue it aggressively during the election would have been seen as purely opportunistic.

One thing they could not predict was a candidate who would collude with the Russian government to achieve victory and promote Russian interests.
