Declassified Intel Report Says Putin Ordered Campaign To Influence U.S. Election

WASHINGTON D.C. (CBS SF/AP) — A new declassified report says Russian President Vladimir Putin “ordered” an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the U.S. presidential election.

U.S. intelligence officials released the 25-page public version of the report Friday, after they briefed President-elect Donald Trump and top lawmakers on Capitol Hill from a longer, classified version.

The report, entitled Assessing Russian Activities and Intentions in Recent US Elections says Russian efforts to influence the 2016 presidential election represent the most recent expression of Moscow’s long-standing desire to undermine the U.S.-led liberal democratic order. It says the scope of Russia’s activities was significantly larger compared with previous operations.

After his briefing, Trump stopped short of embracing the intelligence community’s assessment that Russia interfered in the presidential campaign, saying only that any hacking attempts had “absolutely no effect” on the outcome of the election.

Trump is saying he had a “constructive meeting and conversation” with intelligence leaders on Friday but insists that any hacking attempts had “absolutely no effect” on the election outcome.

    Corrupt Department of Justice employees have been creating their own terrorists and criminals.

    Corrupt FBI and DEA agents had been using falsified evidence warrants to enter homes of suspects and steal items and punish suspects that complain.

    This and much more has been happening to me over a 20 year period.

    On one such entry into my home, someone poured radiator fluid into an open container of orange juice. I can not leave any partially used container of food or drink items in my home because after leaving for several hours and returning they often have some sort of strange chemical taste.

    Another time someone entered my home and loosened a gas fitting to my furnace. Filled my garage with gas fumes.

    And another time, after my carbon monoxide detectors kept going off, someone had moved the plenum above the gas water heater over not allowing the carbon monoxide to vent out.

    Then my dog was poisoned to death. He suffered terribly. The corrupt agents would taunt me claiming I killed my own dog when I criticized the Department of Justice for stealing from suspects.

    I ruined their lucrative theft ring. I called the San Francisco Attorney General’s office to complain about FBI and DEA agents fabricating evidence and stealing from me.

    FBI and DEA employees have been embezzling money, jewelry, clothing, car parts and other expensive goods from their suspects. Each year they steal hundreds of thousands of dollars from suspects and their relatives who have nothing to do with the supposed crime that their suspects are accused of committing.

    The Department of Justice also uses sleep deprivation and other tortures to make suspects look unstable.

    More, when I would not stop complaining…

    I called the San Francisco Attorney General’s office to complain about agents who were stealing from suspects…stealing from me.
    First, FBI and DEA employees tried to lure me to Mexico.

    We all know Mexico has a problem with corrupt law enforcement. With corruption being as pervasive as it is in Mexico, why would law enforcement employees of Mexican descent in the U.S. be any different?

    Next, when that did not work, I was in San Francisco at the now closed tower records store. In walks three hells angels members wearing the vests, etc… and they were glaring at me.

    Someone else came in the store shortly after they had and told the three if they caused any trouble, their club house in Oakland would be raided. I think the person that entered the store may have been state police who was tailing the three where ever they went. Lucky for me.

    They left without incident.

    The DoJ is filled with incompetent and corrupt losers with a false sense of aristocracy who would be unemployed if it were not for the lax hiring criteria of the US government.
