FBI Director James Comey dropped a bombshell this afternoon on Capitol Hill when he testified before the House Intelligence Committee on the FBI’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 Election.
When asked by Representative Lleana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL 27) if any aspects of Russian interference were particularly different in 2016 than in previous elections, Comey responded:
“They were unusually loud in their intervention. It’s almost as if they didn’t care that we knew what they were doing or that they wanted us to see what they were doing. It was very noisy, their intrusions into different institutions.”
This is not a remark to be taken lightly, particularly as immense public scrutiny and federal investigations into Trump’s network of ties to the Russian regime continue to unfold.
Why were the Russians “unusually loud” this election? Did they feel emboldened to act with impunity because they had the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, in their back pocket?
For all the Press coverage surrounding Putin’s persona as a “Chess Master” expertly gaming the international system, such gross intrusions by Russian operatives into the affairs of the 2016 election are a bit too public for a former KGB agent, don’t you think?
So many unanswered questions remain. Stay tuned to Democratic Memes for more coverage of this developing story.
