Senate Report Claims Obama Admin Wasn’t Prepared to Respond to Russian Hacking

A new Senate report has indicated that the Obama administration what unprepared to respond to the hacking attempts of the Russians.

According to The Hill:

The Senate Intelligence Committee released a report Thursday that found that the U.S. government was “not well-postured” to counter Russian interference attempts in 2016, and strongly encouraged the Trump administration to take steps to prepare for future interference attempts.

The bipartisan report is the third volume released by the committee stemming from its three year investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 elections, examines how the Obama administration responded to reports of Russian interference, and how future administrations can improve on this response.

The committee found that the U.S. government did not have the policy options necessary to counter Russian interference in 2016. It also found that the Obama administration was partially constrained from responding to the hacking and disinformation targeting by Russian actors due to the concern that warning of election interference would undermine the public’s confidence in elections.

“The Committee found that the U.S. Government was not well-postured to counter Russian election interference activity with a full range of readily-available policy options,” the committee wrote in the report. “One aspect of the administration’s response–high-level warnings of potential retaliation–may or may not have tempered Moscow’s activity.”

The committee urged Trump and future presidents to not let personal politics keep them from addressing election security.

Regarding the Obama was readily prepared for the supposedly Russian interference, is disgusting.
He was the most prepared because he was directly involved in the mess, but, let’s not forget, he is Black, so he gets a free pass.
He knew exactly what was happening, plus, he was directly involved in the Ukraine crime, but, made sure he sent Biden, so no one could really accuse him of being involved. I hope the day comes when he rots in prison for all his open, deliberate crimes to America. Yet, all of the criminals who are his friends, were readily & willing to lie openly & try to take down Trump.
There is always a pay day for criminals & it eventually comes to them. God takes care of people like this. Trump is blessed because he is a clean, honest man of high integrity.

Only thing is…Russia didn’t do the hacking. Ukraine did that…although Russia could have assisted. At least that’s the info I’d received.

The words of the sodomizing goat herder have told the believers in the cult to “LIE TO THE INFIDEL”. The Infidels, the non muslims, meaning US THE REAL PEOPLE, have to read many passages of that trash book to understand the filth and the stupidity written by that son of a pig and an ass. bo the TRAITOR was always a muslim. Nothing he ever said was to be believed.

The Obama White House never intended to protect anyone other than their own Democrat. All the people put into place in the administration, the judges, the FBI, etc. were are meant to trash any other party and the constitution. Those that remain are still working towards that end.
