It seems that Washington is coming to terms with the fact that Donald Trump managed to win the 2016 US presidential election all by himself, without help from alleged Russian hackers, according to the Russian news website Gazeta.ru.
On Thursday, White House spokesperson Josh Earnest said at a press briefing that President Barack Obama had received the report put together by the US Intelligence Community regarding purported evidence that led officials to conclude that Russia had attempted to interfere in the US election.
Also on Thursday, no evidence was presented during the Senate Armed Services Committee hearing to support allegations that Russia had hacked the US presidential polls, despite multiple calls from Republican Senator Lindsey Graham for the nation to “throw rocks” at the Kremlin.
The highly-anticipated hearing was expected to lay out the basis for US intelligence agency claims of Russian interference, but that was not the case. Instead, it entailed two hours of unsubstantiated statements, calls for aggression towards Russia, and hyperbole.
