So without further ado, here’s the News you can Use for Tuesday, December 13, 2016.
The FBI is disputing the New York Times story that claims that Russia was meddling in the 2016 election to get Donald Trump elected.
Remember when liberals actually cheered on foreign interference in our elections?
The Libertarians at Reason.com would like for both the CIA and the FBI to release the info they have on the possibility that Russia hacked the 2016 election… otherwise, they should shut up.
Given the incendiary nature of the charges being made in the press by anonymous sources at two of the least-reputable organizations in the United States (both the CIA and FBI have long histories of making honest mistakes, incompetent oversights, and outright deception), it’s not enough for the intelligence community simply to share its information with the full Congress, which is actually even less trusted than the media. Just 20 percent of Americans have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of confidence in newspapers, for instance, while even fewer of us—just 9 percent!—have “a great deal” or “quite a lot” of trust in Congress.
The public has a right to know what our intelligence services think *they* know.
Rep. Justin Amash agrees with Reason.
If intel community has evidence, it should be shared immediately with all of Congress. Be skeptical of any claims from anonymous officials. https://t.co/cBFyRGmypu
