The FBI’s Jame Comey said during congressional testimony on Monday that “no evidence” exists — no evidence at all — to show that Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election led to any change in vote counts.
In other words: Democrats can get off the messaging that Russians stole the election under Hillary Clinton’s feet.
Or, as Trump said in a tweet: How about looking at the “real story” now of leaking classified information?
Fact is, the whole Russia-hacked-the-election mantra has been a false narrative from the start.
In fact, that possibility was never discussed, except by the most partisan of policos — by people like Barack Obama and his fan base. The most the Russians ever hacked was into Democratic National Committee emails and documents, like ones of Clinton loyalits John Podesta, and it was those communications that showed the Democrats in a bad light.
But along the weeks of leftist whines about the loss of Clinton to President Donald Trump, the whole hack-the-election mantra’s been spun out of control.
Comey, on Monday, reeled it back to reality. While admitting the FBI was in fact looking at Russia’s interference into the 2016 election season, Comey also clarified that “no evidence” existed to show any kind of influence that changed ballot counts.
The White House responded to Comey’s testiony with an email reported by the Hill:
“Nothing has changed. Senior Obama intelligence officials have gone on record to confirm there is NO EVIDENCE of Trump-Russia collusion and there is NO EVIDENCE of a Trump-Russia scandal.”
More fake news, as Trump noted in his own tweets.
