Drops Election Hacking Bombshell�No Material Interference From Russia.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch admitted Thursdayat a Politico event that there was no evidence that the Russians compromised U.
�Fortunately we didn�t see the sort oftechnical interference that I know people had concerns about, also, in terms of votingmachines and the like,� Lynch said, according to a partial transcript of the event by RealClearPolitics.
The attorney general spoke about the investigationand the information given to the public.
�There�s a number of things we do, someof which we talk about publicly, some that we don�t talk about publicly, in terms ofinvestigation and the responses that we have,� she explained.
�This was a grave concernto us, so we began in the summer to look at what we could say publicly about this issue,and that is why you saw the intelligence community release its report in October, before theelection.
� �Letting the American people know that theintelligence community had determined that Russia was behind the hacks (of the DemocratNational Committee) itself,� Lynch said.
�The investigation is ongoing, certainlythe review is continuing.
We rarely do that kind of public attribution, but it was importantin that instance because the election effects everyone.
�It is not a matter of the results, it ispeoples� faith in the integrity of the system,� she added.
�At the same time, the Departmentof Homeland Security was involved in reaching out to every state to make sure that theyhad access to every resource they needed to protect the state electoral system as well.
� �Fortunately we didn�t see the sort oftechnical interference that I know people had concerns about, also, in terms of votingmachines and the like,� the attorney general concluded � putting to rest, for once andfor all, claims from the left that the Russians had somehow hacked the general election andstolen it from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
You can watch Lynch�s comments below: The Democrats have tried to use the Russianhacking narrative to explain away their losses, but as Lynch noted, there was no interferencewith the election systems.
As far as the other hacks go, the evidenceis far from conclusive.
The bottom line remains that it�s no one�s fault but the Democratsfor the dirty dealings that were exposed.
If they want to blame the Russians for informingthe American electorate, we�re not sure how that�s going to work out for them, butit�s fine with us.
Perhaps instead they should clean up theirhouse instead of complaining that people were able to see their mess through the window.
