Report Shows Vast Reach of Russian Doping: 1,000 Athletes, 30 Sports, 1 Election
Well. If they can follow up by rigging the Super Bowl, it's Bombs Away! And I'm not talking about Tom Brady or Dak Prescott.
But seriously, let me first set aside the notion that the intelligence community can be pressured towards a desired outcome. However, I do think that if different analysts have different views, it may not be so hard for special weight to be given to those whose viewpoint (honestly reached!) dovetails with the favored view of the political overlords.
And I can see why, last September or October with Hillary leading in the polls, the overlords might prefer to favor a conclusion sympathetic to Hillary. But this is December, so why now? Unless the higher-ups are confident of being chased out under the new administration and want to leave the Trumpeters a farewell gift, one might think they would aim their analysis for the middle of the fairway.
I guess between the GRU and the FBI Hillary had no chance. Poor thing.
PILING ON: No Sale from Ann Althouse and oh, yeah, a message for Obama and his Sick Burn acolytes - 2012 is calling and they want their number one geopolitical threat back.
