You wouldn’t know it from the steady chorus of suspicion and the bogus investigation continuing on, but there is actually a long list of Democrat lawmakers, ex-administration officials, and liberal media personalities who’ve been forced to throw cold water on the conspiracy theory that Donald Trump’s campaign colluded with the Russians to fraudulently win the presidential election.
Now we can add another name to the list: Barack Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary, Jeh Johnson.
The Hill reports:
“We saw efforts by Russian intelligence at scanning and probing voter registration databases,” he said Tuesday on MSNBC’s “MTP Daily.” “And we were very concerned about it.”
“I know of no such evidence that actual counts were altered by any type of cyberattack. It is the case we saw and we saw no actual altering of voter counts.”
Johnson added that former President Barack Obama’s administration was “very concerned” about the possibility of interference in the 2016 race.
“We were very concerned that a bad actor could infiltrate voter registration databases – and this is where a lot of our effort was focused, I think rightly – and perhaps wipe out a list, wipe out voters’ registration from the rolls in key places.”
No wonder the smarter Democrat leaders are warning their sheep not to expect too much to come out of their Trump-Russia hysteria. But after whipping up the leftist base into such a frothing rage, can anyone put this genie back in the bottle?
Sorry, liberals. I know the truth tends to cause you to blow a gasket, but here goes: if you want Trump out of the White House, you’ll have to do it the old-fashioned way in 2020.
