White House says hackers won’t change outcome of presidential election

The White House said Tuesday that foreign hacking into U.S. voter databases won’t affect the outcome of the presidential election, while House Democrats asked the FBI to investigate a possible connection between Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and suspected hacks by the Russian government.

White House press secretary Josh Earnest said the U.S. election system, with more than 9,000 state, county and local jurisdictions counting ballots, is too fragmented to be vulnerable to a cyberattack that could change the course of history.

“I think people can have a lot of confidence in the election system, in part because it’s not centralized,” Mr. Earnest said.

Really, investigate Trump for connections? Well, it will give them something to talk about besides Hillary's emails, lol.

"...not centralized", huh?
Not that they wouldn't LOVE it like that, it's just not there yet.
But they will keep trying.

That is because the white house has the election already taken care of for this year.

They're right, it won't affect the course of history. Hilliary is already elected so now it's simply a matter of time for the official announcement date to arrive.

What a joke!

Probably not. The fix is already in.

Exactly. They will tamper with machines and ballots to make sure Hillary is elected, or disrupt the election in some way and keep Obama in. This is how corrupt the Democratic party has become.

The Democrats are already saying she has enough Electoral votes to win. How can that be possible if it is not rigged??????
