Senator John McCain schedules hearing next week on the Russian hacking of our election.

Courtesy of Politico:  

Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain has scheduled a hearing on cyber threats for Thursday, where the issue of Russia's election-year hacking will take center stage, a source familiar with the committee's planning told POLITICO. 

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, National Security Agency and Cyber Command Chief Adm. Mike Rogers and Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence Marcel Lettre are scheduled to testify, according to the source.

The timing of the hearing — three days into the new Congress — is in the same week that President-elect Donald Trump says he plans to be briefed by the intelligence community on the Russian hacking.

Next week? Trump is supposed to receive national security briefings every day, and he puts off a briefing on the Russians hacking the election that he supposedly won until next week?

Well fortunately is appears that John McCain and a number of other Senators on the Armed Services committee have already been receiving briefings and they are ready to do some real investigations.

Personally I think John McCain owes it to America to get Donald Trump arrested for colluding with a foreign government, and keep him the fuck away from the White House.

After all it was HIS VP choice that laid out the blueprint which allowed Trump to rally his racists and deplorables together to give him enough votes so that all it took was a little help from his Russian friends and the FBI to hand him the electoral college.

  1. McCain doesn't have the power. Won't get back up either. Trump will do as he pleases this first year in offices IMO until he steps on toes powerful enough to kick his backside out

      He won't last a year. Impeachment proceeding will start on Day one.
      McCain is a Senior Senator. Don't forget that.

      I think either his poor health or someone on a mission will take him out before his first year is up.

      Once the Deplorables, many of whom are armed to the teeth, realize that they were sold a bill of goods one or more of them may snap and pull John Wilkes Booth on him.

      Alternatively, Putin, once he realizes that Congress will not allow Trump to wholesale pursue the Russian agenda might hasten the effects of Donald's poor health by prescribing one of the special Russian tinctures that he's known for. Polonium Tea anyone?

      I still think Trump will be assassinated! There are too many in our country that are unhinged about him, the majority cannot abide him and the world doesn't like or respect him either. Someone will get him in some manner!

      The coronation if tRump should be postponed until these inquiries are done. Also, until he divests himself from all his business interests. He is doing just what he did with his taxes, stalling until it is too late. We did not elect a part time president (most of us did NOT elect this orange ass). It is a 24/7 job. His daughter, son in law and sons should NOT have jobs in the WH or his administration. They are as clueless as he is. Stupid runs in that family.

      If you thought that was a death threat then your reading comprehension is a little off.

      9:30am was merely stating what many before have, that there are many operators both foreign and domestic that wish harm to the incoming President, it's the case with any President.

      How many people wished Obama harm on a daily basis? It's a reality of the office and our commenter wasn't threatening to do it, just stating the obvious that there are people that would act upon it.

      Why do you think there is a secret service?

      Oh please. There are no death threats here. People are pointing to the fact that there surely are others out there who have such thoughts and might act on them. It happens with every leader of a country and so many others who are public figures. We are only making a statement to this, and adding that if it happens, it happens. Trump is so anti-America and dangerous that, yeah, I do believe there just may be more people out there than usual who could take action. He's got protection. If they do their job, like they have been for decades now, he'll be fine. Then again, the obese hunchback could have a heart attack and keel, and that would be perfectly fine by me.

      McCain is just a giant blowhard with an giant ego. His whole life has been one big screw up, ever since he graduated at the bottom of his class from the Naval Academy. He's never lived up to any of his family's expectations, from crashing planes to getting captured to losing his bid for POTUS, but his ego is too big to allow him to admit any mistakes on his part.

      He does however have a bee in his bonnet over Trump, since Trump made the crass statement regarding McCain's fitness as a war hero being diminished because he was captured. That pissed him off, that's why he's going after TrumpRussia, not for love of country but to assuage his bruised ego.

      Yep. McCain has nothing else in his life but being in the Senate. Without it, he'd have no identity and purpose. He was so desperate to win reelection that he was either silent or giving Trump suckage.

      He knows that if he doesn't call for hearings and act like a leader, his next six years will be completely powerless. And he knows it's very likely that the hearings won't achieve much but create a record (which is all I expect and I'm glad there will be one),but this is a matter for him to get involved in and if he didn't it would just look bizarre. I don't expect the GOP to do a thing beyond making it appear as though they actually do represent the whole of the country and put America first. I expect nothing to happen as a result of the hearings. Except to find a way to place blame on BO.

      It's like when Ezra Klein squashed all of the Trig research by Journalist reporters as making him too squeamish and pretty much just said "hey, we've heard she''s a great mom and even if it is her daughter's kid it's none of our business."

      So some reporters just feel that when candidates for office lie it's all good and really, it's none of our business.

      That's not journalism folks. Sometimes it is ugly and anytime a person is running for office, especially one of the highest offices of the land, and especially once they achieve it, then it should ALL be on the table.

      Exactly. He knows nothing. They are going to have to keep showing him names and pictures in flashcard fashion to make him retain enough just to get through meetings with leaders and then a Q&A.

      Yeah, the press was insane when pursuing Hillary and acted like dogs with bones toward her in interviews she did, but they kissed Trump's fat ass. MSNBC is the only network that presses but Trump avoids them. Jake Tapper on CNN is good and Lemon comes in second, but the rest are never hard on the Trump camp, even those, like Anderson, who are good journalists. It makes me sick, too, how the anchors and reporters on TV just keep smiling and rolling their eyes or shrug when talking about Trump's continued lies and how he's treating the press and acting as if he's already pres.

      And so unfortunately, they are doing it on MSNBC too. The young women, Hallie and Katy and the others who made up the four-five females who reported all election time, are doing it, too. The smiling, for whatever reason, just irks me no end. They need to put on their serious faces and not do anything to make viewers think this is fun and games.

      @10:55 -- "Why is our media so pussified?"

      1) The network owners are afraid of losing access to the W.H. and seeing their ratings fall. Follow the money.

      2) Journalists are afraid of losing their jobs if they ask hard questions and demand answers. Follow the money.

      3) The networks have received bribes (as before during the election), or been threatened. Trump's lawyers are the cream of the cream & may have the networks by the short and curlies. I do not put it past Trump to physically threaten network owners.

    McCain: Russian cyberintrusions an 'act of war'

    ..."When you attack a country, it's an act of war," McCain said of the recent hackings on Ukrainian TV, according to a transcript compiled by Reuters. "And so we have to make sure that there is a price to pay so that we can perhaps persuade Russians to stop this kind of attacks on our very fundamentals of democracy."
    McCain has invited James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence, Admiral Mike Rogers, Director of the National Security Agency, and Marcel Lettre, the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, to next week's hearing, according to the aide.

      The GOP simply don't care. If Obama were assassinated by a Russian, and even if he were strangled to death by Putin's own bare hands and it was on videotape, the GOP would do nothing.

      They do not put this country first. It's all talk. And now GOP voters don't take anything seriously when it comes to foreign threats. Some are people who are too young to remember the Cold War and anything else, but so many are older people who have simply decided that whatever Trump says goes and no one in the government is to be believed unless it's Trump or one of Trump's cronies.

      When it comes to Russia they act like we should be best friends. They are so bent out of shape about Cuba though. Of course, Cuban Americans are just a GOP weapon, along with Israel. All this concern for only Cuban Hispanics and for Israelis is faux and connected to two things: votes and the evangelicals' belief in Armageddon taking place in Israel.

    On Friday afternoon, Trump did two things in response to Putin’s decision not to retaliate against U.S. diplomats in Russia. First, he tweeted a response celebrating the intelligence of the Russian president. “Great move on delay (by V. Putin) - I always knew he was very smart!,” the future leader of the free world wrote to his 18 million followers. Second, after tweeting his pro-Kremlin missive, Trump pinned the tweet to his profile, ensuring it is the first thing seen by anyone viewing his account. It appears to be the first time Trump has ever used the feature.

      The way GOP voters are now, just as Mr. Khan's story about a son who lost his life saving others means nothing to them, if a US citizen's son or daughter was arrested and/or killed in Russia for supposed crimes against the Russian govt., GOP voters wouldn't blink and would just say that Putin had every right to do what he did. It's insane how Trump voters have become so anti-American.

      And so petty. If there were two lemonade stands next to each other, one run by a Dem,'s little girl and one run by a GOP's little girl, the Trump voters would get off on buying tons of lemonade from the GOP stand and watching the other little girl not make money. These adults would really enjoy that. They'd also text and call everyone they knew to come over and support the "real American" lemonade stand. And if the GOP girl were simply raising money to get herself toys and the Dem girl was raising money to help someone in dire straights, someone ill or otherwise in need, those GOP lemonade buyers would still not go over to her stand and buy some lemonade.

    Trump refuses to face reality about Russia

    ...Why is Mr. Trump so dismissive of Russia’s dangerous behavior? Some say it is his lack of experience in foreign policy, or an oft-stated admiration for strongmen, or naivete about Russian intentions. But darker suspicions persist. Mr. Trump has steadfastly refused to be transparent about his multibillion-dollar business empire. Are there loans or deals with Russian businesses or the state that were concealed during the campaign? Are there hidden communications with Mr. Putin or his representatives? We would be thrilled to see all the doubts dispelled, but Mr. Trump’s odd behavior in the face of a clear threat from Russia, matched by Mr. Putin’s evident enthusiasm for the president-elect, cannot be easily explained.

      I'm also sure that he doesn't trust Trump as far as he can throw him!

      Having President Obama near gives me some comfort as to having Trump in the lead position of our country. I trust and respect President Obama, but cannot say the same for Donald Trump who will never be my president!

    Throughout the Trump transition, President Obama has been quietly putting obstacles, traps, and in some cases, firewalls to all of the terrible and detrimental Trump plans to make America into a hostile nation to any human being who isn’t filthy rich, white, or Christian. At least in the near future, any of Trump’s plans to satisfy and aid ISIS leaders by institutionalizing anti-Muslim tactics will have to be of his own making because President Obama dismantled a program the Trump depended on to tyrannize people who adhere to Islam.

      Bush administration program specifically created to register Muslims in America."
      little dick the prick cheney?
      "it would be “logistically easy” for dirty Don to revive the program even though it was “costly and ineffective.” Of course, if there is a Republican-created program that is costly and ineffective"

      President Obama is making things very difficult for Trump to be able to do once he takes office. (Things he campaigned saying he'd do and things noted in the past recent months!)

      I don't agree w/10:31 AM. Trump is NOT going to be able to register Muslims easily at all now. That is good!!!

      Plus, President Obama will be living in Washington D.C. after his presidency has been completed and I'm sure he'll not keep his mouth shut if Trump does illegal things....

      I see Trump being impeached or assassinated within the first year of his taking the helm! He is horribly disliked/despised throughout the country and world!

      What about Obama's Supreme Court nominee -- only 19 days left!

      The good thing about Trump being potus is that Congress has to approve or disapprove of many of his wants and actions.

      The only thing a president Trump can do is start a war w/o the approval or disapproval of Congress. That is indeed frightening!

      President Obama was always anti war with avid work for trying to create peace. Where a president Trump is on record for stating he wanted war (to bomb the Hell out of them!) to control others.

      America is in a Hell of a mess as to our future!

    Many of these Trump supporters ― a lot of them traditional Republicans who went “home,” as political pundits nauseatingly put it ― are defensive about the fact that they voted for the unstable racist, misogynist and self-proclaimed sexual assaulter, and they’re fearful of admitting to themselves and certainly others that they tolerated hate and bigotry. They can’t face that they’re in bed with what appears to be a large swath of other Trump supporters who actually revel in their own racism, pushing white supremacist hate and feeling emboldened by what they view as Trump’s embrace: making Steve Bannon his chief White House strategist. So, they conjure up all kinds of rationalizations or whirl around in a sort of denial.

    These are the Trump supporters that went bonkers over my open letter to my friend.

    ‘This is not normal’: Kurt Eichenwald blasts reporters for being afraid of questioning Trump

    Newsweek reporter Kurt Eichenwald on Saturday said journalists needed to “grow a backbone” to deal with President-elect Donald Trump.

    MSNBC host Jonathan Capehart asked Eichenwald how the media should deal with Trump’s “mixed messaging” in regards to his charity.

    “The first thing we need to do is face reality,” Eichenwald replied.

    ...“Secondly, and this is the most important, we have a president-elect who has been treated completely differently from anybody else,” he continued. “The press has unfortunately gotten into this thing where they’re afraid of propaganda outlets like Fox News coming in and calling them biased. There is no bias here. We have got to grow a backbone. We have got to demand press conferences. We have got to stop covering his tweets like they’re news.”

      Good luck with that.
      They (media) have already shown that they're pussies.

      And their pussies have been grabbed and they've accepted that. And they'd never stand up for anyone else who had theirs grabbed and their life ruined because of it.

    IF the media quit covering his tweets it would undermine Trump completely and it needs to be done. I don't read his tweets and could care less about them.

    The media built him and assisted in getting him elected potus (which he'll never be in my mind).

    It is time they do true journalist work as to his fraudulent ways and lies. He needs to be investigated and the truthful information ALL be put out there about him!

    Stop the media coverage of him as to his tweets. That would be a Godsend to the country and world.

    Trump’s Tantrums Are a Window Into His Presidency

    He will break every political norm in sight—and Democrats will have to break a few in return.

    More fake news about hacking our electric grid. WaPo corrected its story.

    "Editors Note: An earlier version of this story incorrectly said that Russian hackers had penetrated the U.S. electric grid. Authorities say there is no indication of that so far. The computer at Burlington Electric that was hacked was not attached to the grid."

    A high percent of these "ZOMG RUSSSIA! stories get walked back but the original "ZOMG" keeps making the rounds. So this time you're informed and anyone who continues to run around claiming our electric grid was hacked is a liar promoting a fake story.

    They should call in Trump and have him sworn in and question him. Ask him what does he know about Putin or anyone else interfering with the election or hacking. If he says he knows nothing, then he's officially on record.

    Offer immunity to the first person who has proof Trump knew something.

    If it turns out Trump knew something then impeach him for lying at a Congressional hearing or whatever it is called?

    Right!
    It was McCain's VP choice which set the stage.
    Shame on all who enabled her and still enable her by not spilling the beans on her.
    She was never marginalized and needs to be.
