U.S. Intel Report Finds Russia And Iran Tried To Influence The 2020 Election | Katy Tur | MSNBC


    1. @toeknee I’m not sure how your comment is related to foreign influence, but I suspect the illegal immigrants held at the border are in better shape than they were at whatever their origin.

    2. @Thomas Beatty You obviously don’t have children. You try even one day going to a foreign country and be thrown in a shipping container.

    3. @toeknee Tony, actually I have 3 sons. Grown and married. 2 active duty Marines and one retired Marine. And I still worry about them every day. If you have a better solution for safekeeping the migrant children you should suggest same.

    1. @Joe Bloe I am sitting on files proving tRump manipulated and stole 2016 election as well as sitting on files proving tRump organised seditious attack on Capital. Just wondering what news network to send it to.

    2. Ralph Waldo Emerson said in “The American Scholar” essay that European Americans will not give up their European heritage even though they left because of persecution, dividing Americans.

    3. Artist” is a term I would use very lightly when referring to Cardi B. stripper.

      Creepy Joe sniffed her.

    1. Ya I’m sure Russia is super happy their puppet, Trump, lost. Makes perfect sense if you don’t think about it. 🧐

    2. Not really,he didn’t pay rest of our frozen money yet,more palettes pls or we’ll make more “all is well” happen to US bases every day :))

  1. BREAKING NEWS: Americans wouldn’t be so easily influenced if we weren’t so uninformed.

    1. @Bart Man he created the worst border crisis in 60 years. We have 4200 kids in cages compared to Trump when it was only 3-400. Not to mention the 120,000 people held there and 6000 a day crossing. 10x worse than Trump. This is all due to him reversing Trumps border policies. He cut 11,000 jobs by shutting down a pipeline. That’s 11,000 families without income. He created 1.9 trillion dollars in debt the highest record in a single month in American history. He’s by far the worst most pathetic president in American history. He cancelled his state of the union address because he’s senile.he is the only president who didn’t give a press conference his fiery or second week. It’s been 54 days. He’s done. He’ll be gone and Kamala will be president and he’ll go down as the most pathetic president in history. Go ahead despite anything I just said. I’m not a Republican I’m an independent and Biden and Harris are the worst administration in history. Thanks for being a stupid sheep and destroying this country by voting for him. Oh yeah!!!!! He’s about to raise taxes one Beyoncé. It hits people who make 400,000 and up more but every American’s taxes will go up. Again undebatable I’ve read the tax hike bill he’s passing.

    2. @Erin Thor Why does questioning the media make a person gullible? Imo, buying in to all info given and not expecting others to lie is far more gullible.

    3. I truly believe that those radica groups,
      oath seekers, proud girl’s, Qanon, forsure are backed by the K B G a pic, comes up on Putins phone of the Capitol thugs each time cheeto boy calls him

    4. Propaganda. The rich and powerful who own Congress and the rest of our politicians will tell you what to believe.

  2. Cool story bro, did they include any evidence this time? Or is it too top-secret to show to anyone again?

    1. @go crazy You addressed none of the issues mentioned in the evidence I provided. So this is your way of dodging the issue.

    2. @go crazy You dodge the evidence I provided, so that you can address some straw man arguments, that have been constructed for you instead.

    3. @Paul Xaxier The evidence you provided is hardly any proof especially as none of this was taken to court when Trumo’s lawyers were there admitting that their was not proof of democrats committing election fraud to get Biden in office.

    4. @Paul Xaxier (article cont.)

      Other Disputed Findings

      There are other issues with the report, too.

      One of the specific claims made in the report — which was turned into a Twitter talking point by Trump — was that a “tabulation log for the forensic examination of the server for Antrim County from December 6, 2020 consists of 15,676 individual events, of which 10,667 or 68.05% of the events were recorded errors. These errors resulted in overall tabulation errors or ballots being sent to adjudication.”

      But that “is based on a lack of understanding of the voting system,” Macias wrote.

      Macias told us in a phone interview that the “errors” described in the report are, essentially, entries of alerts from tabulation event logs — and that they don’t mean that something went wrong.

      The terms referenced in the report — “divert,” “reversed” and “override” — refer to standard, expected responses as the tabulators process the paper ballots, he wrote in his rebuttal.

      For example, diverted ballots could be a ballot that is “marked by the voter with specific conditions (i.e., voter voted for a write-in or overvoted a contest),” so it is separated from the other ballots to be counted by elections officials. A reversed ballot, meanwhile, is a ballot being returned to the voter for some reason (it could be damaged, or be a ballot for the wrong precinct).

      “To draw an analogy, calling these an error would be synonymous with stating that you reviewed a car’s logs and for each instance that the gas light turned on we will call it an error,” he wrote.

      Ramsland’s report also claims that “[i]n the logs we identified that the RCV or Ranked Choice Voting Algorithm was enabled… This allows the user to apply a weighted numerical value to candidates and change the overall result.”

      Macias said the Dominion product used in Antrim County “does not have the capability to run the RCV algorithm.”

      Dan Wallach, a computer science professor at Rice University who researches voting security, further said “just because the [RCV] feature is enabled doesn’t mean you have any races that use it.”

      “Ranked choice voting necessarily implies that there is a way for voters to specify a ranking” on the ballot, he said. But there wasn’t in Antrim County.

      Michigan Director of Elections Jonathan Brater noted in a Dec. 13 affidavit, “Ranked Choice Voting is not authorized by the Michigan Election Law for use in federal or state-level elections.”

      Duncan Buell, a professor of computer science and engineering at the University of South Carolina, said the report seemed eager to conclude fraud. He said Dominion’s software isn’t perfect, but that isn’t the same as a company creating software to commit fraud.

      “When I read this report what I see … is that every time there is a problem referenced in the software, the report instantly jumps to malice and intent,” Buell said.

      He said that the existence of the hand-marked, paper ballots allowed for confidence in the results.

      “The audit of the human-marked paper is going to be the best record we have of what the voters intended,” he said.

      And, as we said, the audit has now affirmed that the systems used didn’t change the outcome. (end of article)

    5. @Paul Xaxier You CONservatives need to actually start vetting your sources. I didn’t dodge any of your issues, I simply repeated what the *experts* have stated. You can continue to be deluded like most trumpsters or you can come back to the real world….

    1. @Doomsday Defense 1977 Bernie didn’t fail us. He never will. Wherever he serves in Government he will fight for the working people and the under privileged. The Dems failed him. The voters failed him.
      Sanders is not radical, he’s futuristic. Americans need to raise their bar in what our Country can do for us as a people, if we put the right ones in power and make them serve all of us. But it’s so hard to convince voters who are afraid of change, even if it is for the better..

    2. @Wigit I’m hoping the Progressives grow stronger. Trumpism should fade out. But who really knows only time will tell.
      Honestly Trump has NOTHING good to offer Americans but feudalism under his Dictatorship. Well, we’ll have to see what kind of public attitude the Biden Adminstration leaves us with. Maybe voters will like what little Corporate Democrats offer but see under Progressives they could have even more.

    3. @Kevin Shea (pick a team) What teams were there when we started? How many teams are there today to choose from?You sound like we should only have two philosophies to choose from with no room for compromise.

    4. @Brian Holmes yea I’ll have to side with Chickenmaniac on that one, he never stood a chance with the American voter. Too radical.

    1. Ralph Waldo Emerson in “The American Scholar” essay that European Americans will not give up their European heritage even though they left because of persecution, dividing Americans.

    1. @But daddy, The Soviet Union/U.S.S.R. was doin it back then, different name, same tactics, it isnt breaking news.

    2. That’s right “Stalin started the Civil Rights Movement” was popular at the CIA counter intelligence desk, and the John Birch Society. And I don’t blame them really, the Soviet Constitution of 1936 was quite the masterpiece in progressive politics. Decades ahead of its time. Still probably put “The Squad” to shame.

    3. Yes. Not as many people were on Facebook back then but those who were were subjected to their interference.

  3. The bots HATE these stories covering their interference!! 🤣 Just look at how they all swarmed the dislikes and comments! Like flies on crap!

    1. @Jeffrey Fajelan Tumampos yeah it was so impressive how Beijing Biden won 100% of the deceased vote off those Venezuelan voting machines

    1. @Bob Lee Swagger well since our gas prices are doubled ever since Joe took office that 2000 extra dollars is about how much it will cost a year to run your car…so if you think gas prices are out of control now? just wait until Joe Biden’s Green New Deal was implemented

    2. Ralph Waldo Emerson said in “The American Scholar” essay that European Americans will not give up their European heritage even though they left because of persecution, dividing Americans.


  4. I thought that “Robust safeguards help insure the integrity the election results” and that this election “was the most secure in American history.”

  5. Wow! Really good hard hitting journalism! I have a five year old… Can he come and write for you too?

  6. Where’s the “intel” that big tech and the media actually influenced the 2020 election?
    None needed it’s clear as day.
