All-In on Stupid: John Podesta Calls for Intelligence Briefing on Russian Interference With Election For Electors Before They Cast Votes Electing Trump

#FakeNews.

An open letter has been published, signed by several (pro-Hillary) electors, demanding that James Clapper unseal all his records on Russia and make it all available to electors before they cast their votes.

One "Republican" elector signing it was that idiot narcissist Chris Suprin or whatever his name is (why bother learning the name of someone whose 15 minutes has twenty seconds left?).

Allegations that Donald Trump was receiving assistance from a hostile foreign power to win the election began months before Election Day. When presented with information that the Russian government was interfering in the election through the course of the campaign, both in private briefings and public assessment, Donald Trump rejected it, refused to condemn it, and continued to accept their help. Donald Trump even made a direct plea to the Russian government to interfere further in the election in a press conference on July 27, saying, "Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing."

According to reports in the Washington Post, New York Times, and other outlets, the United States intelligence community has now concluded definitively that the Russian interference was performed to help Donald Trump get elected, yet even today Mr. Trump is refusing to accept that finding.

On the left, refusal to accept liberal "expert consensus" is officially tantamount to probable cause to suspect a crime -- or even a crime in and of itself.

In response to the reports, the Trump transition office instead released a statement which called into question the validity of United States intelligence findings, and declared the election over despite the Electoral College not yet casting its votes. Trump's willingness to disregard conclusions made by the intelligence community and his continuing defense of Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin demand close scrutiny and deliberation from the Electoral College.

Separate from Mr. Trump's own denials of Russian involvement in the election, the confirmed communication between Trump’s aides and those associated with the Russian election interference activity raise serious concerns that must be addressed before we cast our votes. Trump-confidant Roger Stone confirmed during the campaign that he was engaged in back-channel communications with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, responsible for releasing much of the Russian-hacked Democratic communications, and indicated that he was aware of the hacked content prior to its release. Trump foreign policy advisor Carter Page reportedly visited Moscow in July of this year, just prior to the release of hacked DNC communications, during which it was believed he met with the Putin aide in charge of Russian intelligence on the U.S. election. Page returned to Moscow this week where he claimed to be meeting with Russian business and thought leaders.
In addition to Donald Trump and his aide'’ conduct, revelations about their further involvement with the Russian government over the course of the campaign demand further investigation...

The Electors require to know from the intelligence community whether there are ongoing investigations into ties between Donald Trump, his campaign or associates, and Russian government interference in the election, the scope of those investigations, how far those investigations may have reached, and who was involved in those investigations. We further require a briefing on all investigative findings, as these matters directly impact the core factors in our deliberations of whether Mr. Trump is fit to serve as President of the United States.

Additionally, the Electors will separately require from Donald Trump conclusive evidence that he and his staff and advisors did not accept Russian interference, or otherwise collaborate during the campaign, and conclusive disavowal and repudiation of such collaboration and interference going forward.

A lot of Red-Baiting from the people who spent 80 years insisting the Reds were not a threat, and in fact represented a system superior to our own capitalist, war-loving one.

By the way, a close associate of Julian Assange vows the hacked emails (and note how the left plays fast and loose with whether they're alleging emails were hacked, or actual voting machine) were not "hacked" at all, but rather leaked by a Democratic operative, impliedly due to outrage about the DNC's favoritism towards Hillary and unfair treatment of Bernie Sanders.
