Obama Orders Intelligence Community To Conduct "Full Review" Of 2016 Election Results, Keep Results Secret

Tyler Durden's picture

Still unable to accept the fact that running a failed candidate and/or failed democratic policies may have had anything to do with Hillary's loss last month, Obama has directed the "intelligence community" to conduct a "full review" of alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Per The Hill, the review is slated to begin immediately with the goal of being presented to Congress before Obama leaves office on January 20, 2017.

President Obama has directed the intelligence community to conduct “a full review” of the 2016 election in light of reports of Russian interference, Homeland Security Advisor Lisa Monaco said Friday.


The report is expected to be completed and transmitted to Congress before he leaves office Jan. 20.


“We’ll see what comes out publicly,” Monaco told reporters at a Christian Science Monitor breakfast.


Monaco gave few other details about the report, other than to say that it will "capture lessons learned and ... report from a range of stakeholders to include their comments."


"This is consistent with the work we did over the summer to engage both the Congress and global stakeholders, in terms of providing them the information and tools to defend themselves," Monaco said.

While Hillary consistently said during the campaigning cycle that "17 U.S. intelligence agencies" had confirmed Russia's involvement in the hacking of John Podesta's emails, as WikiLeaks pointed out, those "17 intelligence agencies" actually came down to one very ambiguous comment, by Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, which actually offered no evidence and didn't actually confirm Russian involvement at all.


But we probably shouldn't let facts get in the way here. 

Meanwhile, numerous politicians on The Hill, from Elijah Cummings to Republican Lindsey Graham, have also called for investigations into alleged Russian hacking.

A myriad of lawmakers have pushed for various investigations into the attacks.


A group of Senate Intelligence Committee Democrats, including Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), has urged Obama to declassify and release “additional information concerning the Russian Government and the U.S. election.”


Democratic House Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) and six other ranking members on Tuesday urged the administration to brief Congress on the matter.


Oversight Ranking Member Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) have announced legislation to create an independent commission to study Russian interference in the election.


Meanwhile, Graham said this week that he will spearhead investigations into the matter.

Again, we don't want to let facts disrupt the narrative too much, but as we pointed out yesterday, the only confirmed case of an actual hacking attempt related to the 2016 election to date originated at the Department of Homeland Security against the Georgia voter database.  We wonder whether Obama's intelligence review will offer any insights on that incident?

Strange, why didn't he order something similar when OPM was hacked, exposing thousands upon thousands of Americans with clearances to foreign agents?

He just happened to decided to do this right after Jill Stein's 'efforts' crashed and burned...

Is this what he meant when he said he'd have more flexibility after the election?

It's not as if these 17 Agencies have anything better to do.  This will keep them busy (as opposed to starting a War somewhere else in the World).

"In 1911 Kiev, Russia, one of the most notorious Jewish ritual murders occurred. An innocent young child by the name of Andrei Youshchinsky was discovered to have been killed for occult rites. Menachem Mendel Beiliss was accused of being the perpetrator of the crime.

Jews from around the world sought to conceal the true nature of the crime, and they spent over the equivalent of at least $115 million in today's money so that Beiliss's team of lawyers would win the case."

"In II Kings 23:10 we read:

"And he [King Josiah of Judah] defiled [destroyed] Topheth which is in the valley of the children [son] of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter to pass through the fire of Molech."


Molech or Moloch, whose name probably derived from Melech "king," was one of the deities worshipped by the idolatrous Israelites. He was referred to as "the abomination of the children of Ammon" (1 Kings 11:7) and the primary means of worshipping him appears to be child sacrifice or "to pass through the fire." Solomon was said to have built a temple to him.

Molech was a god worshipped by the Canaanites, Phoenicians, and Ammonites. Foolish Israel began sacrificing her children in fire to this pagan god."

Amun - if you read what it says the pagans like YOU sacrificed their kids to idols, and Josiah was about to stop it.
You are a fucking idiot, it's quite clear.

" “You must understand

the leading Bolsheviks who took over Russia were not Russians . They hated Russians.They hated Christians. Driven by ethnic hatred they tortured and slaughtered millions of Russians without a shred of human remorse. It cannot beoverstated. Bolshevism committed the greatest human slaughter of all time.The fact that the world is ignorant and uncaring about this enormous crime isproof that the global media is in the hands of the perpetrators.” 

 the deaths of millions of Orthodox Christians at the hands of a ‘Jewish led’ government was a crime unparalleled in history” ; and the Holodomor, during which anything from 5 to 8 million Ukrainians starved to death as part of a state-sponsored policy aimed at diminishing Ukrainian nationalist sentiment, was a tragedy which not only rivals that of the later Shoah but in fact surpasses it"

Some people can't see the difference between generosity and weakness.  Jehovah gave them a land of milk and honey, and some of them concluded He must just be weak.  So they put themselves between Jehovah and His people.  Tthey adopted a coin at the Temple which was in short supply, with which they short-changed any Believers who came to present sacrifices to Jehovah.  Jehovah responded by letting Rome take Jerusalem, and, ever since, His people have had to partner with Rome.  A partnership neither enjoys.

Solzhenitsyn, who died in 2008, replied as follows:


I avoid exactly that which your question implies: I do not call for any sort of scorekeeping or comparisons between the moral responsibility of one people or another; moreover, I completely exclude the notion of responsibility of one nation to another. All I am calling for is self-reflection.


You can get the answer to your question from the book itself: Every people must answer morally for all of its past - including that past which is shameful;


 specifically, that it would behove the Jewish people to answer, both for the revolutionary cutthroats and the ranks willing to serve them. Not to answer before other

peoples, but to oneself, to one’s conscience, and before God.

9/11 was in large part enabled by Bill Clinton hamstringing the intelligence community by forcing them to review all of their "information gathering" (which included by dealing with rats and using some unpleasantries to obtain information) going back 10-15 years to identify any possible violations of civil liberties. Not that he was going to do anything about it. He just wanted to a big flag over that entire process, and of course there are violations when you are dealing with rats.

The problem was that our intelligence agencies were focusing on that workload and not on current threats.

Let's hope that this absurd investigation does not yield similar results (intentionally or unintentionally).

WOW!  I cannot believe there is even one individual alive in 2016 stupid enough to believe what you just posted.  You actually believe the dying man on dialysis in a cave outwitted the global deep state intelligence apparatus????? You probably think that the US has been at war with Isis and that Saddam had nukes.  Go back to your safe place with the MSM, this is Fight Club!

What a fuckwit.  His precious Intelligence Agencies carried out 9/11.  Jut like they murdered Kennedy.

Pleae, Jeffersonian, do some reading.

Hey, fuck both of you brainwashed assholes.

It's so hard to believe that there are Islamofascist murderers out there that carry out massive killings on a regular basis, right?

Why don't you two assholes stop reading so much stupid conspiracy bullshit and try to think independently instead of just joining The CIA Is Responsible For Every Evil Act In The History Of The US crowd.

Now that you've gotten that off your narrow chests, your stupid comments have nothing to do with what the rapist Clinton did. He didn't give a rat's ass about the CIA violating civil rights. All he wanted to do was hamstring them from doing anything remotely productive.

LoL, You guys did'nt just expect the fucking Antichrist to just up and leave did you? That damn Nostradumbass just forgot to buy a vowel Mabus. And Baba baby said Ace of Spades 44 and out, thats it, no 45.

Hell no, he's still got a Jihad to run and a million muzzies to import. Approved more weapons and manpads to the terrorists that are restricted from terrorist nations just yesterday. Gonna have his own TV channel to tell us how great he is some Moar and shit he says.

Told the Military yesterday, that they don't have to obey the President, never mind Article 88 and his Constitutional scholarly fraud ass.

The dumbest part of all the dumbness is that DNC/Podesta/King Putt don't dispute the accuracy of the hacked info proving they are corrupt and evil to the core, but rather are pissed that the info came into the light.  Wouldn't it be easier to just say that it was all fabricated?

Peak Idiocracy/Corruptocracy!

GreatUncle's picture

The problem for somebody when this shit comes out ...

If you deny then somebody may investigate and find the truth and at that point destroy you.

So all they have done is ignore it, neither confirm or deny it that is why Clinton being elected president was a joke she was hamstrung already because she was not able to discuss anything without recriminations. Hence all her speeches and talks were orchestrated for her to talk and no questions asked for to do so may unleash serious consequences.

If anybody asked Clinton any question you now know it is always a put up because she cannot afford somebody to ask the wrong question.

Obama said there was "no serious" person who would suggest it was possible to rig American elections, adding, "I'd invite Mr. Trump to stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes."

yep.  and now, to turn the screw, obama's investigation has the 'opportunity' to plant evidence that threatens trumps election.

as dhs said, "we'll see what comes out publicly."

yes we will.

@ All,

Doubt it.. Jill's & the "Scientists" efforts were simply an Intel gathering mission as to find out why their Algorithms went wrong.

Another distraction attempt. No worries you Criminal, DHS was & has been hacking into our elections. Oh yea, right it's for our protection & it's "Fake News." You pathetic Piece of Shit.

The Secretary of State is demanding an explanation from the Department of Homeland Security after they were caught trying to hack the state’s election system.

Remember all of that Fake news before the election about Russia trying to hack the U.S. election?

Well tonight the State of Georgia has revealed a cyber security firm they hired detected attempts to hack their voting system, not by Russia, but from the United State’s very own Department of Homeland Security.

Of course, DHS hacking operations fall under the purview of the National Security Agency and as such Georgia’s Secretary of State has sent a letter the DHS copying several U.S Senators and members of Congress, asking why the agency violated Federal law and tried to hack into the states election System.

So once again, the claims that Russia tried to hack our election systems is looking to be like more “fake news” from our government and the corporate media.

Just like the Fake News about Trump having a secret server communicating with Russia which was quickly debunked by HNN and then by several cyber-security researchers including Robert Graham of Errata Security which even Snopes was force to admit it was untrue.

Or more notably how Hillary Clinton claimed during the debates the 17 intelligence agencies stated Russia hacked the U.S. election systems and was behind the WikiLeaks emails when in fact there was only a single joint statement issued by the State Department and the Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

They know that it wasn't the Russians, but insiders from the Gov who leaked to Wikileaks. Given the implications and potential consequences of Pizzagate...

They need this "Investigation" as a cover, while they are looking for the source of the leaks, and then silence all those who were in that loop: Dead men tell no tales.

These people should investigate Obama's birth origin.   Start with his bio saying he was born in Kenya, then go to the two videos where he says he was born in Kenya, and the two videos of Moochelle saying he was born in Kenya, his social security number issued in `1890 in Connecticut, and the reason why his legal team argued in court his birth certificate was a fraud.   then we can ask the lady in Hawaii what she knows about the cover up.   Oh, we can't, they killed her off.


After we're done there, let's inspect the Soros voting machines that kept swicthing Trump votes to Hillaranzi, then lets go over all the voters to see ho man illegals actually did vote.  Lets also count the 6 million uncounted absentee ballots.
