“Russian Hacking” revisited.  Ray and Mike Papantonio discuss CIA claims about Russian hacking with RT’s Simone Del Rosario; Ray devotes a minute to describing the huge difference between hacking (which NSA would readily be able to trace) and leaking where there is no electronic signature).

Mike gets it right: “There is no proof, no evidence, and no hard facts” that Russia meddled in the US elections.

A lawyer, Mike introduces a legal term – “misdirection” – a tactic to divert the conversation.  The DNC and pro-Hillary media wanted to conceal the CONTENT of the emails (which shows that Bernie Sanders was cheated out of the Democratic nomination) by diverting the focus to WHO-HACKED; PROBABLY-THE -RUSSIANS.  Quarterbacks of the Fawning Corporate Media called the kind of end-run that left those focused on the center feeling faked-out.


In sum, YES, the election process WAS “interfered with.”  But read the CONTENT of the emails.  That content shows Hillary to be the main culprit.  Perhaps there is some poetic justice that the Democrats turned out to be too clever by half.
