    I guess we all just had to wait until he was ready for his next briefing to get on the same page.

    Of course, Obama didn't let the Russians hack America. Obama knew about the alleged hacking at least as early as July, 2016, but didn't sanction the until December, 2016.

    So the real question is why the long delay? Obama claimed that it was to allow the intelligence agencies to do further investigation. Not even CNN bought that excuse. CNN reported that for months the Obama administration was confused and divided about what to do.

    As CNN further reported, the action leading to sanctions was not the alleged actual hacking, but that the information obtained was released to the public. CNN stated:

    Why the Obama administration didn't respond earlier to Russian hacks - CNNPolitics.com

    If you read the report (and believe it), this was the probably the case. The DNC was allegedly hacked from July, 2015, to June, 2016, and that the Russians had obtained most of info by May, 2016. And they allegedly began releasing it to the public in May, 2016, as well. The report notes that the information released contained no forgeries, so the info released was truthful. Noone has ever even alleged that any of the info was untrue. So, despite knowing this in July, Obama took no action in response until after the election.

    Thus, the sanctions were for the release of the information and the actual hacking was a secondary reason.

    Guys guys guys.....let's all look on the bright side of Russian espionage like our incoming president wants us to. Look at all the classified stuff it let us know about that we wouldn't have known about otherwise?


    BTW, how do your brains not explode when you complain about Clinton's e-mails potentially letting out classified material and then have your elected president saying we should look on the bright side of basically handing out classified material to the Russians?

    The funny part of this statement is you actually believe what you posted. Its also the sad part.

    Here is some reality for you. There is no way to stop hackers fdom doing what they do with 100% efficiency.

    With that said, Hillary was an Employee of our government doing things she knew she was not supposed to and then gets cleared of it magically by a corrupt administration.

    The hacking of the DNC is not a potential classified issue unless they themselves are breaking the law. The DNC is a private organization and should not be having classified material on their servers.

    Our own government entities have been being hacked during Obama's entire Presidency, yet this is when they choose to create a firestorm of finger wagging and shame on you Russia? Get serious here and realize you are falling for a desperate parties attempts to justify its loss. Its time to move on from this.

    But hey, let's look at the bright side of what Hillary did. Maybe we now know something we're not supposed to know!

    I am looking at bright side on the 20th. A man of action will be taking over and right or wrong, he will do some things to make changes where status quo no longer works. change can be good and bad, its time to make some and see what ìt does.

    Well, if his first press conference was an indication....it's going to be a shit show and we're all going to look bad because of it. For me, it's not about republican or democrat, we have an unstable person in charge. A person that just yesterday got into a 3rd grade fight with a reporter and told us to look on the bright side of Russian hacking.

    Personally thought it came off a little petty too. But for God sake man, for the first time since Bush threw in the towel in about 2004, we got someone who is fighting. Is Trump edgy? Yes, and I get that it can scare passive folks. Hell Obama had less edges than a slug and was about as intimidating on the foreign front, as speedy on the economic front, and as slippery on the social front. Trump is "salty". I do get why that salt is a scary thing to slugs and those that emulate slugs though.

    Put it this way. Republicans love Reagan and the might dislike Putin but they probably admire the "strength" that he comes across with. Can you imagine either of them saying,

    "Go ahead. Go ahead. Go ahead. No, not you. Not you. Your organization is terrible. Your organization is terrible. Let's go. Go ahead. Quiet. Quiet. She's asking a question. Don't be rude. Don't be rude. Don't be rude. No, I'm not going to give you a question. I'm not going to give you a question. You are fake news. Go ahead. Go ahead."

    I think Obama was hoping Russia would release the Trump pictures. Evidently Russia is holding them for something big, down the road.

    It really pisses you off that the American people found out so much about the DNC and hillary, right? Damn the facts - kill the source - kill the source!!!!!!

    The MSM regurgitates that same bile of "russian hacking" 24/7, misleading people, that the Russians actually tampered with voting machines changing votes from hitlery to Trump. Which would directly be meddling and affecting the outcome of the vote. when in reality, all that happened was that the voters simply had more information to base their vote on. What's actually sad is that it was even that close. lots of people turned a blind eye to the corruption that was hitlery and the demorats. sad. I think if she killed a baby on live TV, she'd still have the same support........ :tsk::L
