Obama orders 'full review' of election hacking reports

( I am not familiar with this source)

Quote:A top White House official told reporters Friday morning that President Obama has ordered a "full review" of reports of hacking during the presidential election. "We may have crossed into a new threshold and it is incumbent upon us to take stock of that, to review, to conduct some after-action, to understand what has happened, and to impart some lessons learned," Obama counterterrorism and homeland security adviser Lisa Monaco said at a reporters' breakfast.

Quote:The report will be shared with "a range of stakeholders," but Monaco did not say whether the findings would be made public. Obama plans to have the review completed before President-elect Donald Trump is inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2017.

I think it's safe to say that this story is true since it has also been reported on by many historically credible outlets, such as Time, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Reuters, Politico, CNN, USA Today and the LA Times.

Yes, The Week was just the first one to report it.

It's getting to be a bloody mess out there. The bigger outlets have gotten very slow to report, presumably because they, too, need to verify everything extremely carefully.

The thing with the election is that on both sides tons of people think it was or can be rigged. You cannot have a democracy where voters think that elections are rigged anyway. So, no matter what your political orientation, you should support a full review of voting and how it can or cannot be rigged or influenced in modern times. We have to make sure that next time around there is no doubt, no matter who wins.

The rednecks were planning violence if the election didn't go their way. Obama orders an investigation.

Yeah, no difference between the two sides. Drinking Beverage

You know that the other side staged violent riots because they didn't get their way, right? Laugh out load

I was part of a protest march a week ago and it's not because we "didn't get our way" it's because the person who won is an asshole. I wasn't thrilled about George Bush winning either but I knew he had some governmental experience and I accepted that he was the president. trump is the president too but he's a fucked up, thin skinned narcissist who is going to fuck this country up and, god damnit, I'm gonna have a few things to say about it!

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Violent riots? I didn't heard anybody died or even were seriously injured during those riots. Broken store windows and a few damaged cars doesn't make a violent riot in my opinion. It's actually pretty lambda. Unless entire streets were sacked, over a dozen police officers injured and mass arrests were necessary, I woudn't call it violent.

I guess Obama wants it before Jan. 20th because that other guy can be trusted to trash it and dismiss its import.

RE: Obama orders 'full review' of election hacking reports
From what I've read, before the election Obama went before McConnell and some bipartisan republicans and democrats and told them that there should be a bipartisan investigation of this Russian matter because if he ,Obama, came forth with this information it would be seen as a bipartisan Democrats issue. McConnell said "no". This is the big issue.
