LOL. For a guy who wants to stop the quibbling and get to the topic at hand, you sure do quibble a lot. Your posts here don't bother me, if that's what your after. I laugh at them.

Frankly, when nobody in the administration will listen to someone like Dan Coats (or McCain, for that matter)...the Trump admin is basically willing to let the Russians burn down our most sacred democratic process without any consequences, so we deserve whatever happens for not taking steps to safeguard the system months before our next election cycle.

Frankly, we’ve heard more about Google, Facebook and local/State political parties battling over gerrymandering at this point. Despite nearly unanimous votes asking for stronger sanctions against Russia, and one of those five no votes being one from Justin Amash of MI for not doing nearly enough. But no, let’s just throw up our hands in exasperation and shrug it all off since Trump can’t even begin to fathom it.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/united-states-at...-170100777.html

During a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in Washington, D.C., the directors of the CIA, FBI, National Intelligence, National Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency and National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency were asked to reaffirm their view that Moscow’s election meddling has continued since the election of President Trump. They did so unanimously.

“Frankly, the United States is under attack,” Dan Coats, the director of National Intelligence, said at the start of Tuesday’s hearing. “Under attack by entities that are using cyber to penetrate virtually every major action that takes place in the United States.”

“Influence operations, especially through cyber means, will remain a significant threat to U.S. interests,” Coats continued. “Russia probably will be the most capable and aggressive source of this threat in 2018.”

The director warned that the Kremlin will continue to use “sympathetic” spokesmen to advance its disinformation agenda, pushing propaganda, social media, “false-flag personas” and other means of influence “to try to exacerbate social and political fissures in the United States.”

“There should be no doubt that Russia perceives its past operations as successful,” Coats added.
