How Come No One Involved in the Russian Hacking Conspiracy Talked?

<p><a href=""><em>Authored by Paul Craig Roberts,</em></a></p>
<p><strong>The claims that the Russian government hacked US voting machines are absurd. </strong></p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>Voting machines are not connected to the Internet. To hack a voting machine you have to be physically in proximity to the machine and use a hand held device.</p>
<p>The machines can be programmed to throw the vote count to one candidate or the other, and there are other ways to interfere with elections.</p>
<p>Possibly if a foreign power had server presence in the US, some precinct reports of results could be intercepted and altered, although a voice check over the telephone is an easy way to verify the electronic transmission. What is clear is that Russia cannot hack the voting machines.</p>
<p><strong>What about the claims that Russia hacked Hillary&rsquo;s emails and used a network of 200 Internet websites to convince the American people to vote for Trump?</strong></p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>Wikileaks, which released the emails, said they were a leak, not a hack, and that they did not come from Russians. The FBI and the Director of National Intelligence do not support the CIA&rsquo;s claims. Or should we say claims attributed to the CIA as apparently the source of the claims, like the source of PropOrNot, is unknown.</p>
<p><span style="text-decoration: underline;"><strong>And look at the size of the alleged conspiracy&mdash;the Kremlin and 200 websites. Surely someone would have talked! </strong></span></p>
<p><strong>John McCain says he is sure Russia did something </strong>and we need a congressional investigation to find out what.</p>
<p><strong>Why not start with an investigation of PropOrNot and what they are up to?</strong></p>
<p>We also need an investigation why Americans living in big cities on the NE and West coasts were immune to Russian fake news, whereas <strong>the geographical bulk of the country succumbed to the Russian fake news instead of to the presstitute fake news that conquered the NE and West coasts</strong>.</p>
<p><strong>The FBI says that the claims attributed to the CIA would not stand up in court. </strong></p>
<blockquote><div class="quote_start"><div></div></div><div class="quote_end"><div></div></div><p>So what are the claims all about? Who is behind them?</p>
<p>Are there elements within the CIA committing treason by working against president-elect Trump?</p>
<p>Are there elements in the US Congress committing treason by trying to sway electors with fake news resting on unattributed claims that the Russians, not the American people, elected Trump?</p>
<p>Why these claims in the absence of proof?</p>
<p>What we are experiencing in the delegitimization of Donald Trump is an <strong>extraordinary rejection of democracy by elements in the government and by the presstitutes</strong>.</p>
