Russia interfered in the election. Ordered by Putin.

Those who say there is nothing to the Trump / Russia investigation, that Russia did not interfere in the election, now need to believe that Obama, multiple intelligence services, and multiple members of Congress of both parties are lying and that Donald Trump alone is telling the truth, even though by his actions Trump has rather clearly been obstructing justice. Which is mighty peculiar behavior for someone who claims innocence.

an intelligence bombshell, a report drawn from sourcing deep inside the Russian government that detailed Russian President Vladi­mir Putin’s direct involvement in a cyber campaign to disrupt and discredit the U.S. presidential race.

But it went further. The intelligence captured Putin’s specific instructions on the operation’s audacious objectives — defeat or at least damage the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton, and help elect her opponent, Donald Trump.

Obama also approved a previously undisclosed covert measure that authorized planting cyber weapons in Russia’s infrastructure, the digital equivalent of bombs that could be detonated if the United States found itself in an escalating exchange with Moscow.
