The FBI Just Admitted Putin DID Carry Out Election Hacks, Trump Silent

In a stunning reversal, the FBI’s Director James Comey has finally admitted that the CIA Director and Director of National Intelligence are correct; Russia created a sustained cyber warfare campaign against Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party to help Donald Trump. The Washington Post reports:
FBI Director James B. Comey and Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper Jr. have backed a CIA assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election in part to help Donald Trump win the presidency, according to U.S. officials. 
“Earlier this week, I met separately with (Director) FBI James Comey and DNI Jim Clapper, and there is strong consensus among us on the scope, nature, and intent of Russian interference in our presidential election,” CIA Director John Brennan said in a message to the agency’s workforce, according to U.S. officials who have seen the message.
Earlier today, Hillary Clinton’s campaign chair released an op-ed at The Washington Post entitled, “Something is deeply broken at the FBI.” Clinton herself went public for the first time to point the finger squarely at Putin for taking revenge against her for calling her out after he did steal an election, causing a mass uprising back in 2011 amid reports of widespread and very obvious voter fraud.
The FBI has been cited as the lone holdout agency to concur that Russia intended to help Trump win since October when America’s national security agencies – all 17 of them including the FBI – signed onto a joint press release pointing the finger at Russia.  The hacks compromised the Democratic Party National Committee’s email, messages from its Congressional fundraising wing, and Clinton Campaign Chair John Podesta’s personal emails, which were fed to Wikileaks and other news organizations on a strategic scoop-by-scoop basis.
