Do you think Russia hacked the United States election?

    Do you think Russia hacked the United States election?

    Should there be an investigation into the CIA claims that Russia hacked the presidential election and affected the outcome? What do you think?

    Yes. The CIA has already proven it. Now Obama has ordered intelligence agencies to check into potential election hacking all the way back to 2008 when China is said to have done it. We have to know what's going down, so we can clean up our system and protect our voting process.

    I think its laughable.  I think anyone who is looking for some form of excuse to explain what occurred in this election, or why, is simply trying to stay blind to reality and buy into the BS that 'mainstream media' aka state propaganda is trying to sell.

    The working class, the middle America, got tired of buying into the BS of politicians who screw them over every chance they get, these politicians that give themselves fat raises and top notch health care and have bank accounts with many millions in them, while selling off our country's jobs, opening the borders to millions of undocumented workers, and peddling their votes to the highest bidder.

    These are the same 'news agencies' that tried to sell America on the idea that millions of people across the Middle East and beyond were rioting over a YouTube video (specifically trying to use that to cover Benghazi) ... its amazing, more than half of America is fed up with Washington and the media that shovels their BS (hello WP, NYT) and what do they do after Trump is elected?

    They double down on trying to sell us more BS... "The Russians are coming!  The Russians are coming!"  ...idiocy .... wait until the election two years from now ...talk about cleaning house ...

    No. And it isn't certain that they hacked the DNC. What is certain is that the DNC colluded to leak debate questions to Clinton and tell moderators what questions to ask Trump, organized violence at conservative events to blame on the conservatives, vetting stories by reporters to ensure Clinton had only the coverage the DNC wanted and conspired to prevent Sanders and the other Democrat from winning the primary. Oh, and the Democratic vote fraud from Project Veritas where they admitted voting minorities around a lot to vote multiple times, giving advice to legal residents to vote despite not being citizens, the now proven vote fraud in Detroit of thousands voting 5-10 times each.
    If Russia WAS involved, all they did was reveal the truth the Democratic Party was more corrupt than conservatives thought.

      You are in denial. There are already Chinese nuclear bombs circling the Pacific due to the fiasco of Donald inviting in Russian hackers to influence the election. Wake up from the redneck ultra conservative  dream you are having.

      Oh yeah, it was all Hillary's fault as is the state of the world. Wake up Tamara! They hacked the GOP, too, but they didn't release any of their emails. Why? Because making Hillary look bad gained more votes for Trump.

    How could they have "hacked" our election?? If by this you mean did they hack into voting machines to alter results?  The answer is no, that's impossible, because the voting machines aren't tied to the internet.
