FBI Director James Comey and Director of National Intelligence James Clapper are in agreement with the CIA assessment that Russia interfered in our elections with the intent to support Donald Trump. Do you deny the intelligence agencies assessment?

I do. I doubt if comrade Trump does.

Until I see evidence then I'm inclined to say the us Gov is as full of crap as they usually are.

I believe them, but I think it's a non issue since I already think our elections are pointless.

Of course it was the CIA that told President Bush there were WMDs in Iraq . . . soooooo I guess you can't take everything they tell you as solid undeniable reality.

The intelligence agencies won't show evidence, but just say "trust us". Umm...no.

So you're admitting anyone who voted for trump is stupid? We are making progress!

Well I'm not as foolish as some Republicans as to think I know more than our intelligence agencies lol. But I understand how you can develop such hubris when your favorite candidate, who has absolutely no relevant experience whatsoever, thinks he knows more than our generals!

What relevant experience did Obama have? Community organizer?

He was a Constitutional law professor and a Senator... a bit different from being a non-taxpaying reality TV host and guy who leases buildings to put his name on them so he can convince people he's wealthy.

He actually served about 6 mos in the senate before hitting the road to be president. Being a lawyer is irrelevant.

He served in the senate and was a constitutional law professor. I'd love to see Trump take a test on the constitution!

Put up or shut up, I say. Show some evidence. Until then, this all seems like politically driven BS. That said, even if Russia was responsible for the leaks, it only made the election more transparent & the American public more well informed.

"Well informed?" Even though they also hacked the RNC but only chose to release the DNC emails? That hardly left us well-informed as a public.

Let's say it turned out that NBC actually had also found a video of Hillary Clinton talking about grabbing men's dicks, but only chose to release the tape of Trump. Would you be defending that decision, saying it kept the public well-informed? Be honest.

No, of course not. I think information indicating corruption or other undesirable actions, if it exists, should come out on both sides.

According to Assange, he received three documents on the Republicans and Trump. He said he didn't release them because the information within them had already been released and was already public knowledge.

And just for clarification, I didn't say the public was well informed, but *more* well informed (as compared to before receiving the info). I still think We the People are grossly uninformed about much that goes on.

They're right. Russia forced me to vote for Trump. I tried to sneak Hillary's name in, but they hacked my paper ballot. 😞

No evidence has been revealed to support this allegation. The NSA has been silent on this and if it were true they would most certainly have the ability to obtain significant evidence on the matter. Until substantial conclusive information comes to light I refuse to believe any state sponsored hacking or hacking groups, such as Anonymous, interfered with our election system.

To believe them outright is, to be put bluntly, using the logic guilty until proven innocent.

Intelligent agencies have an extensive history of lying to us. One recent example is that whole let's invade Iraq because they have WMD's.

The intelligence agency that deals with electronic intercepts from foreign computers is the NSA. I want to know what the director of the NSA says about it.

I believe them and every honorable American should believe them. As President Obama says Ronald Reagan would roll over in his grave to see the Republicans embrace Putin and accept his interference in our election.

It still doesn't make sense to me. I'm not going to blindly believe what the CIA is saying without some form of documentation. I'm not really denying it, I'm just not convinced yet.
