Handling the Truth (about Russian hacking)

Can we handle whatever the truth might be about Russia and the elections?

The chain of events since the election is this (at least what we know):

November 17: Admiral Michael Rogers:

“There shouldn’t be any doubts in anybody’s mind: This was not something that was done casually, this was not something that was done by chance, this was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily…This was a conscious effort by a nation state to attempt to achieve a specific effect.”

November 29: All Democrats on the Senate Intelligence Committee senate-letterto President Obama.

“We believe there is additional information concerning the Russian Government and the U.S. Election.”

December 6: Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), after repeatedly warning about Russian interference, says he will lead a Senate probe.

December 7: Time Magazine reports interview with Trump, including question about the Russian hacking charges. He repeats denial and says he thinks the intelligence information is politically motivated. “I don’t believe it. I don’t believe they interfered.”

December 9: President Obama orders intelligence services to produce “a full review” before he leaves office.

The question is: how serious was this and the old question about who knew what….when…..

Can we handle the truth? We must know…regardless the consequences.

What comes next?
