Comey Warns That Russia Will Try To Meddle In 2018, 2020 Elections

Source: Talking Points Memo


By ALICE OLLSTEIN Published MARCH 20, 2017, 1:19 PM EDT

Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee, opened Monday's bombshell hearing on Russian interference in the 2016 election by warning that if it happened once, it can happen again.

"Only by understanding what the Russians did can we inoculate ourselves from the further Russian interference we know is coming," he said.

Roughly three hours into the hearing, FBI Director James Comey agreed with him.

"They'll be back," Comey said of the Russian government. "They'll be back in 2020, they may be back in 2018, and one of the lessons they may draw from this is that they were successful because they introduced chaos and division and discord and sowed doubt about the nature of this amazing country of ours and our democratic process."

1. Be back? Tell the truth, Comey, they have not gone away and are actively calling

the shots to some extent in the WH.

6. Proves that so long as there's no Clinton anywhere near the White House, Comey will do his job.

Hope he's happy with the extra work he's making for himself.
That is, if he's not just playing patriot to keep his job and fly cover for the Russian Mobsters.
He can be a dirty as Guliani and the rest of the NYC/NE corridor FBI creeps are.

They may be pushing to get democrats elected just to dial down on the crazy.

10. "They'll be back"

What gives him any reason to think they are not still here and hard at work?!!

Does he think they just shut down for two or four years? Why wouldn't they be continuously attempting hacking and also disseminating fake news stories on Facebook, now and all the way up to the lead up to the election? It works. And it works even better if they do not relent.

Look at how they have split DU with all the fake smears against Hillary they posted pretending to be Bernie supporters. Still some in here that are fooled by all that BS.
