Trump not authorizing prevention of election hacking


Apparently trump wants the Russian to continue to interfere in our elections. Makes sense given his connections and behavior toward Russia. Treason is what’s that is called.

You do know there is a VERY big difference between not authorizing vs hasn't authorized right? What is the policy they are reviewing? What are the details of it? Has congress came out with their recommendations and findings yet? Wouldn't it be prudent to wait until you get the results from those investigations to find out what actually be done and how?

You wonder why people think Rawstory is a pile of warm crap?

Since it's raw story, so I have zero interest in looking at it. But what's amusing is the dems having used the Steele dossier, which was heavy influenced with Russian participation, and the left shrugging their shoulders.

Collusion is BAAAD when the dems accuse the republicans of doing it. When the dems actually do it, ehhh, not so much.

There is no way to stop people from trying to hack our elections . The government can do nothing to prevent that. They can legislate all they want but I don't think Russians, Chinese, NK, or Zimbabwe for that matter really give a sorry rat's a** what any of us think or threaten to do about it.

Beside that, the effect of any outside interference hasn't been shown to be more influential in determining the outcome of our elections than illegals have.

Heck, the Dem's can't even prevent their own servers from being hacked.

Complete BS. You actually believe we should do nothing?

How long have we known about this? Nothing is being done yet.

Sessions says he has "no idea" what's being done.

So yeah it is very clear that not much is going on in the Trump administration to prevent hacking.

Our own government interferes with other countries elections all the time.

Why should our elections be any different?
