Jeh Johnson: Trump administration showing acceptance of Russian interference in U.S. elections

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Friday that the Trump administration’s reluctance to address the Russian interference shows acceptance of a foreign power meddling in U.S. elections.

“The current administration and current president is kinda sending the signals that this will be tolerated,” Mr. Johnson said on MSNBC.

“I have not heard from President Trump a strong statement of condemnation about the Russia behavior, and about what all of his intelligence community is telling him happened last year, and what we said publicly last year happened,” he said.

But Mr. Johnson pushed back against the idea that the intelligence community dragged their heels in announcing the Russian interference, saying there were a lot of factors to consider.

“The decision to make attribution on Oct. 7 was a very big decision because we were in the midst of a very overheated campaign, with one of the candidates saying the results are going to be rigged, but at the end of the day, we decided that we had to tell the American voting public, the American public, what was going on,” he said.

It's hard for a President to come out against something that never happened. What a nut job!

Keep in mind that: a) the mischief occurred on Obama's watch and nothing substantial was done to remedy it; b) Hillary had more exposure to Russia than anyone in U.S. government, and; c) actual Russian interference (i.e., affecting a single vote) with U.S. voting is non-existent, yet another figment of Liberal imaginations and desperate, devious intentions.

Keep in mind that: the entire story is fake and created by intelligence agencies to distract us from the real financial crimes ongoing at the Fed.

Thank you

No, Jeh Johnson, you have it wrong. The former POS President was totally accepting of the behavior, not the current President. Go blow your stupid horn to more of your liberal minded desperate friends.

I just don't see the big deal about any Russian Interference, I mean, it was proved they didn't hack any machines, din't change any votes, so what is the big deal? All they did was expose the Democrats for what they really are. (Hacked Emails). I don't get is why Bernie supporters are not mad as hell on what the Democrats did to him!
