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

    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."

    I wonder what elections from other countries the US plans to interfere with in the next few years.

    The US has only interfered in the elections of 46 countries, so it seems to me they still have some work to do.

    From a strategic point of view it would almost be foolish for them not to. They don't even have to succeed. Just the rumor of such interference shakes our citizens', and the world's, confidence in our elections.

    Gosh, who played, hysterically, right into that, huh -- and continues to do so? It's not like there weren't those of us saying this since November 8th.

    Shaken even more? The President has stated that the election process is crooked and 'rigged'.

    Maybe not more, but at least keep us from regaining confidence.

    President Trump.
    He said the election process was rigged, the media are crooked, the judiciary corrupt and incompetent, and the intelligence agencies are like Nazi Germany. He has a pretty low opinion of the USA.

    That's probably a great question, for another Thread, perhaps you should explore that.

    This Thread BTW, is about what Director Comey said.

    Thanks you.

    I admire your love for mother Russia, Comrade. If only our current leaders felt the same about our country.
