Everyone who has followed American presidential election slightly would know that how Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump praised each other during Trump’s campaigns for the election. If not any other country in the world, but certainly Russia was sure of Trump’s presidency.
CIA reports have suggested that Russia indeed has intervened in 2016 American presidential elections to help Donald Trump win. Intelligent agencies have found the individuals having a connection to the Russian government who shared thousands of hacked emails with WikiLeaks.
Russian’s interest was to jeopadarize Clinton’s chances.
Individuals that have been captured by the intelligence agencies are known as the part of a Russian operation to boost the Trump’s chances of winning.
A senior US official said…
“It is the assessment of the intelligence community that Russia’s goal here was to favor one candidate over the other, to help Trump get elected, that’s the consensus view.”
Barack Obama administration is continuously debating on this.
The White House is planning on how to respond to the alleged Russian intrusions.
Trump and his team have denied the issues.
President-elect Trump’s transition team in a short statement stated, “These are the same people that said Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. The election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest Electoral College victories in history. It’s now time to move on and ‘Make America Great Again.”
Donald Trump also released a statement in which he says…
“I don’t believe they interfered” in the election, he told Time magazine this week. The hacking, he said, “could be Russia. And it could be China. And it could be some guy in his home in New Jersey.”
Julian Assange, the founder of the WikiLeaks.
He reported in an television interview that, “The Russian government is not the source.”
Lisa Monaco was briefing to Barack Obama.
Lisa Monaco, Obama’s counterterrorism, and homeland security adviser say, “We may have crossed a new threshold, and it is incumbent upon us to take stock of that, to review, to conduct some after-action, to understand what has happened and to impart some lessons learned.”
She also said Obama wants the report before he leaves office Jan. 20. The review will be led by James Clapper, the outgoing director of national intelligence.

The US intelligence agencies are skeptical about the hackers…
The US intelligence agencies are doubtful that hackers can manipulate the result of the presidential election in a well-organized way. The White House feared that Russia could encourage such things against America.
In a secure room, administration officials have discussed on the pieces of evidence that slightly prove the possibilities of Russia’s intrusion in hacking and changing the result of major two states for President-elect Donald Trump. The room was full of all they key people in the Democratic party and they agreed upon the need to take this threat seriously.
Mitch McConnell, a senior Democrat.
He raised a doubt in the meeting about how he would consider any effort by the White House to challenge the Russians publically as an act of ‘Partisan Politics.’
Not to forget, McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, is a nominee for transportation secretary in Trump.
Rep. Adam Schiff, California.
“The lack of an administration response on the Russian hacking cannot be attributed to Congress, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, who was at the September meeting. The administration has all the tools it needs to respond. They have the ability to impose sanctions. They have the potential to take clandestine means. The government has decided not to utilize them in a way that would deter the Russians, and I think that’s a problem.”

What’s your take on all this?
19th December is an important date for Donald Trump, as it can take away his presidency and give it to Hillary Clinton. Also, there’s a lot of probability of Hillary challenging the results of three primary states. And now this evidence which says Russia has somehow managed to manipulate the count of electoral votes in favor of Donald Trump has only made things more complicated.
Well, only time can tell what lies ahead in future of the United States of America.
