The scope and sophistication so concerned Obama administration officials that they took an unprecedented step — complaining directly to Moscow over a modern-day “red phone.” In October, two of the people said to offer detailed documents of what it said was Russia’s role in election meddling and to warn that the attacks risked setting off a broader conflict. The “red phone” wasn’t literally a phone, but a secure messaging channel for ” urgent messages and documents.”
The killer for the Democrats in this revelation isn’t necessarily that Obama also had a ‘back channel’ to the Russians, it was also said that setting up this communication prevented Moscow from launching cyber-attacks against our election:
“Look at the results,” one Obama administration official told NBC in December. “There was nothing done on Election Day, so it must have worked.”
Of course Bloomberg went on to say:
The White House provided evidence gathered on Russia’s hacking efforts and reasons why the U.S. considered it dangerously aggressive. Russia responded by asking for more information and providing assurances that it would look into the matter even as the hacking continued, according to the two people familiar with the response.
“Last year, as we detected intrusions into websites managed by election officials around the country, the administration worked relentlessly to protect our election infrastructure,” said Eric Schultz, a spokesman for former President Barack Obama. “Given that our election systems are so decentralized, that effort meant working with Democratic and Republican election administrators from all across the country to bolster their cyber defenses.”
The only election interference was from the criminal Obama administration. Obama’s DHS tried to hack into the Georgia elections, Susan Rice unmasked Trump and his private associates and Loretta Lynch protected Hillary Clinton during her criminal email investigation.
The Trump-Russia hoax is a smokescreen to distract from the crimes Obama, Hillary, Loretta Lynch, Comey et al committed.
