Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 23, 2020

Washington (CNN)The US intelligence community's top election security official appears to have overstated the intelligence community's formal assessment of Russian interference in the 2020 election, omitting important nuance during a briefing with lawmakers earlier this month, three national security officials told CNN. The official, Shelby Pierson, told lawmakers on the House Intelligence Committee that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election with the goal of helping President Donald Trump get reelected. The US intelligence community has assessed that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election and has separately assessed that Russia views Trump as a leader they can work with. But the US does not have evidence that Russia's interference this cycle is aimed at reelecting Trump, the officials said.

"The US intelligence community has assessed that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election and has separately assessed that Russia views Trump as a leader they can work with"

And the two parts of this same sentence taken together mean, wait for it, that the Russians intervene for Trump.

You play at words. Poorly.

This was a set up.

Just like the Comey briefing to Trump.

They knew Schiff would leak it.

Now that we have a competent DNI, people like this will not be tolerated.

You mean people who give intelligence information to the opposition Party?

You people have a habit of denying your bad behavior while immediately doubling down on it.

That's interesting. Kind of like you've been trained.

(1) So, everyone seems to agree, at least, that Russia is interfering in the 2020 election.

(2) The dispute seems to be whether or not Russia is trying to get Pres Trump re-elected.

fwiw, I definitely agree with (1), that Russia is interfering.

I am not yet there with (2), that Russia wants Pres Trump re-elected.

My view at this point, and pretty much all along, is that Russia is looking to sow the seeds of chaos in Western Democracies. That is their strategic aim.

Last week: Russia is trying to interfere in our elections. Rightbots decry the intel community as deep state, blah, blah, blah. Fat Nixon fires the acting director and replaces him with a Cult45 stooge.

This week: New intel director says last weeks intel was wrong. Rightbots cheer the new Cult45 intel director.
