Hillary Joins In Russian Election-Tampering Fear-Mongering, Despite No "Definitive Proof"

Tyler Durden's picture

Last week we wrote about how the Obama administration and the Department of Homeland Security were playing a dangerous game with suggestions they could be forced to seize control of state election infrastructure in response to allegations of Russian hacking into Arizona and Illinois election databases (see "Why Is The DHS Preparing To Take Control Of The US Election?").  That said, we noted that DHS likely wouldn't just seize control of state election infrastructure on a whim as that kind of "blatant power grab" would require a "catalyst" and extreme fear of election rigging among the electorate.  We therefore speculated that any sincere desire to nationalize state election infrastructure would have to be preceded by an intense "fear mongering tour" aimed at whipping the "electorate into a frenzy" over concerns that the sanctity our election process, the very basis of our democracy, was at risk.

Well, it seems that Hillary is now joining in on the "fear mongering tour" telling a rally in Illinois that there is "credible evidence" for U.S. intelligence officials "to pursue an investigation into Russia's efforts to interfere with our election." Per NBC News, when asked recently whether she thought Putin was interfering with U.S. elections in an effort to help Trump, Hillary responded with her favorite, folksy, Arkansas saying:

"If you find a turtle on a fence post, it didn't get there by accident.  I think it's quite intriguing that this activity has happened around the time Trump became the nominee."

Isn't she just so down to earth and relatable?  For some reason we're suddenly reminded of another saying that involves glass houses and stones.

Hillary

Hillary continued with the usual rhetoric painting Trump as just another of Putin's "useful idiots."

The Democratic nominee told reporters on her plane that Trump has "urged the Russians to hack more, and, in particular, hack me, and he has generally parroted what is a Putin-Kremlin line."

 

The allegation against Russia by U.S. intelligence officials "raises further questions about Trump," Clinton added, "and I think those are questions the American people should be asking and answering."

 

The Republican nominee, she said, has "very early on allied himself with Putin's policies … And he furthermore has praised Putin, he seems to have this bizarre attraction to dictators, including Putin."

Ironically, Hillary's comments came just hours after the Washington Post joined in on the accusations on "Russian plan[s] to disrupt November elections."  The report came despite a U.S. intelligence official cautioning the Post that there is no "definitive proof of such tampering, or any Russian plans to do so."

U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies are investigating what they see as a broad covert Russian operation in the United States to sow public distrust in the upcoming presidential election and in U.S. political institutions, intelligence and congressional officials said.

 

The aim is to understand the scope and intent of the Russian campaign, which incorporates ­cyber-tools to hack systems used in the political process, enhancing Russia’s ability to spread disinformation.

 

A Russian influence operation in the United States “is something we’re looking very closely at,” said one senior intelligence official who, like others interviewed, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter. Officials also are examining potential disruptions to the election process, and the FBI has alerted state and local officials to potential cyberthreats.

 

The official cautioned that the intelligence community is not saying it has “definitive proof” of such tampering, or any Russian plans to do so. “But even the hint of something impacting the security of our election system would be of significant concern,” the official said. “It’s the key to our democracy, that people have confidence in the election system.”

Seems that Hillary is more than willing to allege fire when it is politically expedient and despite no "definitive proof" while dismissing the many plumes of smoke surrounding her various personal scandals as mere "conspiracy theories" conjured up by "alt-right" nut jobs. 

Certainly, any credible threat aimed at undermining the confidence of the American electorate in the election process is something that should be taken very seriously.  However, propagating rumors and speculation of such a serious threat against our democracy without any "definitive proof" is wildly irresponsible.

That said, we suspect the "fear mongering tour" will continue with frequent stops in swing states all around the country over the coming weeks.

Did the cunt have to take a twitching or coughing fit break while saying this?

Americans are doing quite enough to undermine their whole system of government, they don't need Russian help.

Hey, pass me a banana.

Yes - she's losing so time for Obama's DHS to count the vote.

And talking about Russian road safety, Putin's driver has been killed:

Here is the drill.

Trump wins election. Obama declares the process was hacked. Obama suspends election results. Homeland Security investigates. Justice Department certifies DHS findings. Hillary declared winner. US democratic process is buried at sea with Osama Bin Laden.

Goddam Rooskies…

Always moving their countries borders nearer to our new broken promise Eastern European military bases and our threatening military exercises.

Then they had the nerve to whack our very own ISIS allied moderate terrorists in Syria.

But of all goddam things they had the unmitigated gall to interfere with our $5 Billion Ukraine NGO engineered violent coup as well as Monsanto, Cargill and ADM’s plans to GMO Ukraine’s farmland.

But worst of all, they supported Crimea’s overwhelmingly popularly supported self-determination effort to secede from the self-righteous Kiev extremists and rejoin Russia.

Well, at least Hunter “Navy reject Coke-Head” Biden got a plush gig in what’s left of Ukraine.

And so now they are trying to rig the election for Hillary?

Goddam war mongering Russian bastards!

It would be so cool to sneak that documentary on the in-flight entertainment system for the reporters in Hellary's flying alumininum spaz-jet.

 

Back to Putin and the Red Menace... of all freaking things… they have a bombshell ringer down there to distract the forces of justice.

When will it end?

It's more likely that: 1) Trump wins election, 2) Obama declares the election was hacked, 3) DHS and FBI investigate, 4) Investigation gets slow-walked... forever... as Obama remains president.

That was a message to Putin, anyone who could have orchestrated that knew he was out of town, but at the end of the day someone important is pissed.

Shows how clueless she is about the pulse of America-  for the most part, I happen to dig Vlad,  and I think most Americans respect a leader;

But hey, Hill-  I'm sure those 100+ people bothering to show up to your rallys really love you, too.....

American Sheeple do have short memories which TPTB love to "Gas Light." Howver, they do remember Vlad kicked some I CIA SIS ass in Syria.

Again they got brains on that side, evil spawn from hell but bright..

This is a twofer play, setting up the US for massive civil violence from the left of course as always and all blamed on an external enemy that the MIC needs back in its sights.  Its a crisis Trump will be hard pressed to manage as he is boxed in, support evil Vlad by taking his side or take the lefts side, I love lose/lose scenarios in Politics and the left is so very good at setting them up..  Of course not too tough when the competition is the Washington Generals coached by retarded elephants..

Hillary should lay off snorting that coke, it damages your respiratory system.  For that matter, why can't she and Trump take a urine sample or blood drug screening test, to see if they are using illegal drugs.

If I want to stock shelves at a hardware store, I have to get a drug test and share the results with my potential employer.

If I want to be a cop, I have to get a drug test, and a psychological exam; both will be shared with my potential employer.

 

If I want to be President of the United States, "with my finger on the button", no tests/exams required and my employer, the American people, have no right to demand/view my private health information and/or my psychological state.

Dear Mr Trump.

They will steal this election from you by rigging it themselves or, as looks more likely, by claiming that you rigged it.  You must demand paper ballots now.  The only reason Brexit succeeded is that they were smart enough to demand paper ballots.  You must be as smart.  If you do not do this, they will steal this election.
