FBI does not concur with “fuzzy and ambiguous” CIA assertions

President elect Donald Trump has slammed the ongoing effect by detractors on the left to convince the American people that Russia was involved in somehow ‘hacking’ the US election, causing a Trump victory.

In a tweet sent out this afternoon, Trump succinctly asked readers to imagine what the media coverage would be like were the tables turned and Clinton had won the election:

In a follow up tweet, Trump noted that it is very difficult to determine who is responsible for ‘hacks’ unless you catch them “in the act.”

The CIA assessment that Russia was somehow involved in the election result was first reported by The Washington Post on Friday, prompting many to label it more ‘fake news’ as part of an effort to overthrow Trump’s victory.

On Sunday referred to the notion that Russia interfered to help him win as a “ridiculous excuse.”

As things stand, absolutely no evidence has been produced to substantiate the claims.

What’s more, the FBI has labeled the CIA claims as “fuzzy and ambiguous”. Reports suggest that the issue was raised last week in a meeting between lawmakers and FBI officials.

A senior FBI counterintelligence official met with Republican and Democrat members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence to discuss the bureau’s view of a recent CIA report. When asked, the official did not concur with the CIA’s announcement, which was said to have frustrated Democrats on the panel.

The Washington Post suggests that the disagreement probably stems from “cultural” differences between the two intelligence agencies. It’s report suggests that while the FBI “wants facts and tangible evidence to prove something,” the CIA is “more comfortable drawing inferences.”

“The FBI briefers think in terms of criminal standards — can we prove this in court,” one of the officials said. “The CIA briefers weigh the preponderance of intelligence and then make judgment calls to help policymakers make informed decisions. High confidence for them means ‘we’re pretty damn sure.’ It doesn’t mean they can prove it in court.”

Or maybe it’s because the whole thing is bullshit fake news?
