Toontime: From Russia, With Love

The Washington intelligence establishment is reacting badly to the impending reign of Trump.  Pressured by the Current Occupant to put together some evidence of official Russian involvement in the hacking scandal, the CIA complied this week with the release of an official report.  Let's hope the intel in it is more reliable than the informant known as "Curve Ball", whose tainted testimony was used to drum-up a war against Saddam Hussein.  Trump, who is sensitive to his business interests in Russia and the help Putin could give him, would rather believe Julian Assange, a founder of Wikileaks, who said in an interview that direct Russian involvement in hacking Democratic Party e-mails was unlikely, since a fourteen year-old hack could have done it.  Perhaps it was "Cozy Bear's" kid? US Person's estimate: more diversionary chaff that  Washington well knows how to generate.  See Operation Gladio for some real  interference in democratic processes.
