So the outgoing President decides that sanctions are necessary against Russia. The guy that always has a really good take on circumstance is Newt….. experienced and smart and brings up a very good point.
And the point: “What was the basis of his sanctions, he had a bad morning, he had a hunch……Whats going on here?”

According to a report, the FBI has never examined the servers of the Democratic National Committee — not even for the six months during which the bureau claimed to be investigating allegations of Russians compromising cyber networks.
In fact, according to a US intelligence official who spoke toBuzzfeed News, “the bureau has still not requested access to the hacked servers, a DNC spokesman said. No US government entity has run an independent forensic analysis on the system.”
While it would seem intuitive for the U.S. Intelligence Community to perform a detailed and methodical analysis of its own, Eric Walker, deputy communications director for the DNC, told Buzzfeed,
“The DNC had several meetings with representatives of the FBI’s Cyber Division and its Washington (DC) Field Office, the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, and U.S. Attorney’s Offices, and it responded to a variety of requests for cooperation, but the FBI never requested access to the DNC’s computer servers,” Walker told BuzzFeed News in an email.
So Apparently Obama has acted when the FBI and the CIA have not even given him the details, and instead relied on information that the DNC has provided, that NONE of the intelligence agencies can even agree on as being hacked by Russians!
Although the FBI declined to comment on the report, it’s notable the bureau has relied solely on third-party technology security company, CrowdStrike — whose controversial report early last year noted Russia-linked hackers penetrated DNC systems — for its analysis and assessment, rather than performing one of its own.
But the official who spoke with Buzzfeed — and expressed confidence Russia coordinated the ostensible ‘widespread hacks’ — didn’t exactly add an air of confidence to the CrowdStrike report, noting,
“CrowdStrike is pretty good. There’s no reason to believe that anything that they have concluded is not accurate.”
So we have a 3rd Party outside source that is the ONLY one who claims hacking and that came from the DNC which Obama has apparently acted on.
Additionally the guy who received the information is Julian Assange who denies absolutely that the Russians supplied the information, which it seems came through a British third party so the supplier would always remain anonymous.
So where is Obama going with this? There are a couple of options as I see it.
- Obama is trying very hard to destabilize the President Elects first term in any way he can.
- Obama is actually leading up to a conflict on either Russian borders or in the Indian ocean where as much fiery talk has been apparent with he NK government.
- Or is there something even more ominous ahead and before inauguration day, where some sort of contesting of Trumps loyalty to the USA which would somehow lay the foundations for impeachment from day one.
Whatever the case Obama seems to be acting independently of all intelligence offices and generally speaking….. without a support and tangible proof in any shape or form.
The Democratic establishment do not seem to be prepared to go without a fight, that may well be of monumental proportions.
