Benchmark May 31, 2018, Former top spy James Clapper explains how Russia swung the election to Trump "It stretches credulity to conclude that Russian activity didn't swing voter decisions."
But now I'm speaking as a private citizen, having left government service and knowing what I know about what the Russians did, how massive the operation was, how diverse it was, and how many millions of American voters it touched. When you consider that the election turned on 80,000 votes or less in three key states, it stretches credulity to conclude that Russian activity didn't swing voter decisions, and therefore swing the election.
If you refer to the Benchmark November 2016 the group that caused HRC's loss by that small margin is laid open and they give their own reason why they bloc voted Donald Trump into the presidency.
Benchmark The ODNI and associate agencies based their claim of Russian hacking and influence on a group of Influence peddlers including- AricToler, Petr Poroshenko, James Clapper, Dimitry Alperovich, Dimitry Yarosh, Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, Andrij Dobriansky, Ivanka Zajac, George Masni, Taras Masnij, Alexandra Chalupa, Irena Chalupa, Elliot Higgins, Nestor Paslawsky, Joel Harding, Andrew Aaron Weisburd, Clint Watts, Andreas Umland, and Andrea Chalupa. Oh, lest I forget, it just wouldn't be the same without Ukrainian nationalism's uber nazi- Stepan Bandera III.
Key organizations working directly and indirectly with Joel Harding's IO are Bellingcat, InformNapalm, Stopfake, Propornot, InterpreterMag, Euromaidan Press, Hamilton 68 Dashboard, Facebook, and Twitter.
Linked into the article already is the continuation of the IO starting with the Women's March which was about everything other than Women's rights. Trans rights and Immigration topped the headlines while Ukrainian Diaspora allies that don't qualify for status were tucked in. The Ukrainian Diaspora was bold enough to have youth dressed in WWII OUN nazi uniforms parading around in New York.
Charlottesville had IO operatives on both sides. George Soros footed the bill for Black Lives Matter who were taking down the statues and the so-called neo-nazis forgot to change and some were wearing Ukrainian Diaspora aligned polo shirts with their own CEEC nation logo emblazoned on it.
What this did was legitimize the destruction of historic monuments without even a public hearing and attempt to delegitimize the presidency of the United States.
The free speech protest in Boston on the heels of this was shut down by these same IO actors. The rally was even recognized by the Atlantic Council as a legitimate free speech rally.
What they took note of was the salient point, no one gave a damn about freedom of speech.
If those attempting to impeach Donald Trump do so on any of the false information provided by the IO actors, no future presidency is safe. Without those lies, what is left to target this president? That's the question that needs to be answered.
Every one of the Intel seniors, leaders of the Intel community that took part, agency heads, and department heads, groups, companies, and private citizens responsible for organizing this have to be investigated. While there is no way to put the genie back in the bottle, Congress has to regulate who gets to do this and how.
If this IO wins and the president is cast out, war with Russia and then World War is the only inevitable event left to look forward to. If you don't like Donald Trump, vote in 2020 like any other person that believes in western democracy.
If we don't stop this Information Operation deep state coup, you may not get the chance.
