Obama Offers RT Television as Proof of the Russian Interference in the Trump Success. @larrycjohnson Noquarter.net

“…Let me try to clear up some confusion that may exist out there regarding my views on Russia. I do not believe that Russia is a benign threat to the United States anymore than I believe that the United States is a benign threat to Russia. Both are nuclear powers, both have global interests and both spy on each other.

I do not deny that Russia has a cyber warfare capability and is constantly probing for weak points in the United States, collecting information and preparing target packages. Duh! So are we. This is what professional intelligence organizations, particularly those with cyber capabilities should be doing.

…..What would constitute Russian “interference” in our election? Here are some things I would consider as evidence:

• A human or electronic source showing that an official in Putin’s immediate sphere (or Putin himself) communicated in writing or verbally to someone in the GRU (the military intelligence branch of the Russian military) identifying the U.S. election as a concern and directing a plan to be developed for conducting an information operation (or cyber attack).

• A human or electronic source showing that orders were issued to execute such a plan.

• A human or electronic source showing that the email from a still unknown source at the DNC or from John Podesta’s email were received by the GRU.

• A human or electronic source showing gloating/celebration by GRU or Putin authorities over receipt of the DNC/Podesta emails.

• A human or electronic source of regular communication with someone at Wikileaks.

• A human or electronic source of the delivery of the exploited emails (again, this requires either evidence or an assumption that the GRU actually snagged the emails) to Wikileaks.

Not a single piece of such evidence was referenced in the report issued last Friday. And it is quite possible to report on such proof without comprising the source or sources. There is some artful phrasing.
