“Russia, Russia, Russia,” mentioned President Donald Trump mockingly, in a Saturday tweet concerning the huge cyberattack on america. His remarks come lower than 18 hours after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo explicitly mentioned Russia is “clearly” behind the assault.
“The Cyber Hack is far greater in the Fake News Media than in actuality,” Trump wrote in his tweet, referring to the hack that Pompeo informed conservative radio host Mark Levin was a “very significant effort” by Russia.
“Russia, Russia, Russia is the priority chant when anything happens because Lamestream is, for mostly financial reasons, petrified of…discussing the possibility that it may be China (it may!),” Trump’s two-tweet thread continued.
As he did earlier with an op-ed about an editorial on Stephen Colbert‘s interview with Joe Biden, Trump then tied the topic of the tweet to his persevering with claims that the election was stolen. “There could also have been a hit on our ridiculous voting machines during the election, which is now obvious that I won big, making it an even more corrupted embarrassment for the USA,” he wrote.
The Cyber Hack is much higher within the Faux Information Media than essentially. I’ve been absolutely briefed and the whole lot is nicely below management. Russia, Russia, Russia is the precedence chant when something occurs as a result of Lamestream is, for largely monetary causes, terrified of….
….discussing the chance that it may be China (it may!). There may even have been successful on our ridiculous voting machines throughout the election, which is now apparent that I gained massive, making it an much more corrupted embarrassment for the USA. @DNI_Ratcliffe @SecPompeo
Considerably, Trump tagged each Pompeo and Director of Nationwide Intelligence John Ratcliffe within the tweet, which deliberately or not serves to focus on the alternative conclusions.
Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, appearing chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, additionally explicitly highlighted the distinction in conclusions between American intelligence and Donald Trump’s Twitter account.
More and more clear that Russian intelligence carried out the gravest cyber intrusion in our historical past
The method of figuring out its extent & assessing the injury is underway
Remediation will take time & important assets
Our response should be proportional however important

Rubio echoes Pompeo’s assertion that “we can say pretty clearly that it was the Russians that engaged in this activity.”
