Wake up America, where is our outrage? CIA assessment says Russia intervened in election to help Trump win.

This isn't good. Secret CIA assessment says Russia intervened in election to help Trump win.

Wake up America, where is our outrage?

Where is that deep rooted patriotism that verges on nationalism? Another country has interfered with the election of the President of the United States. Not a nice democratic country that was watching over our election to make sure it was fair and democratic, but a nation led by a tyrant and former leader of the KGB. This is not ok!

If you truly love this country, regardless of who we elect for President. If you truly respect the men and women who put on a uniform and risk their lives to protect our democracy, then you must be very upset when a foreign government attempts to undermine our democracy. Any President of any party would be pretty pissed off at the moment and trying to figure out what the right response should be. Our President-elect apparently believes that the proper response is to tell the American people that it was nothing, just another conspiracy theory. This is ironic since conspiracy theories were the backbone of the Trump campaign.

But this is not a conspiracy theory. It is not a theory that our President-elect has significant economic ties to Russia. (…/dbdcaac8-31a6-11e6-8ff7-7b… ) It is not a theory that the Russia that Putin has created has a severely strained relationship with the USA and nothing would indicate that the relationship would improve with any other presidential candidate of any party. Donald is the exception. He has expressed respect and even liking for Putin. Trump has significant investments in Russia and as his son, Donald Jr., put it a when talking about his family empire “Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets”. A “pretty disproportionate cross-section” of Trumps assets are in Russia and/or financed with Russian money while Russia is meddling and manipulating our election in Trump’s favor. This should bother everyone who believes in democracy! This time things may have gone your way, but what about next time? If someone were to try and steal your freedom they wouldn’t do it by direct confrontation, that would be too costly, they would do it by enticing you by making you think that you are getting some great short-term advantages.
