DHS Jeh Johnson – No the Russians Didn’t Alter the Vote count
In an interview with the Washington Post, Homeland Security Chief Jeh Johnson admitted that the Russians didn’t hack into the voting while the voting was occurring. They did not alter the ballot count. Today is the day that electoral college meets to decide the Presidency, and in spite of the Democrats’ constant harping about Russia, it appears on track for a Trump win.
“I think it’s important to note that on election night we had our guard up for this. We had our crisis action team ready on election night. We did not see anything that amounted to altering ballot counts or degrading the ability to report election results, nothing out of the ordinary. There’s always a certain amount of noise that goes on there but on election night itself we didn’t see anything that affected the ballot count.” Jeh Johnson
The DHS is currently investigating the overview of Russian hacking and Wikileaks email releases, but the left wing media has run headlong toward the Russian Conspiracy theory, believing every morsel.
“We see no evidence that hacking by any actor altered the ballot count or any cyber actions that deprived people of voting. Whether the disclosures that we made that we pointed out in our Oct. 7th statement altered public opinion, that’s beyond my level of expertise.” Jeh Johnson
Of course some fruitcake like former interim DNC chairwoman Donna Brazile claims that hacking was going on everywhere all during the election (…wait didn’t she release some of the questions of the debates to Hillary? Yeah, THAT Donna Brazile. Reputable source, she is not.)
She appeared to contradict the President, who said that the actual hacking stopped in September after he reportedly told Putin to “cut it out.” Then he threatened to retaliate with a “proportional response.”
Russia is a formidable enemy. But make no mistake, as enamored as many Americans have been with a strong leader like Putin for the last 8 years, he is still one of the most dangerous people on the planet. Does he lie? Yes. Did they actually hack to reveal the Dem’s dirty laundry? Problematical. Why don’t we believe the Russian hacking theory? Because our own leaders lie too.
