USLAW has drafted a MoveOn.org petition to President Obama calling on him to "order the nation's intelligence agencies to make public the evidence they have that the Russian government interfered in our election to help elect Donald Trump. With the integrity of our democratic elections at stake, the public right to know outweighs concerns about 'sources and methods.'
The media has created a tsunami of publicity about the claim that Russia hacked our election to help The Donald get elected. President Obama issued a statement saying he had asked the nation's intelligence agencies to investigate.
The Washington Post reported that the CIA concluded in a secret assessment that Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help Donald Trump win the presidency. According to the Post, senior Democratic lawmakers are calling for a full investigation of the CIA’s claims, demanding that the intelligence community turn over all its evidence to Congress.
But, the Post said, a "FBI official’s remarks to the lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee were, in comparison, 'fuzzy' and 'ambiguous,' suggesting to those in the room that the bureau and the agency weren’t on the same page." It cited a senior government official in reporting that intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the Kremlin “directing” the identified individuals to pass the Democratic emails to WikiLeaks.
Donald Trump said he doesn’t believe Russia interfered in the election, reasoning: “It could be Russia. And it could be China. And it could be some guy in his home in New Jersey.”
Former CIA Operative Robert Baer says if the CIA can prove that Russia interfered with the 2016 election then the US should vote again.
And former FBI agent and whistleblower Coleen Rowley cautions, "They need to put accuracy above everything else because, literally, we could have a war on the line here and the United States, if they find that, you know, there's a foreign country hacking, they will retaliate aggressively which they've already promised to do. It's very dangerous stuff and we have our domestic politics now wrapped in with foreign policy -- and that's not a good thing."
