washingtonpress.com // U.S. Cyber Command Chief just made a shocking revelation about Trump’s election plan – President Trump himself has repeatedly cast doubt on the consensus because he is desperate to undermine special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
If the president refuses to adamantly confirm the foundational truth, that is to say, that there was Russian interference in the 2016 election, then he leaves the door open to reject whatever findings Mueller eventually renders. It’s a cynical, self-serving strategy that sacrifices the welfare of our democracy for Trump’s personal gain.
The Raw Story reports that today, Admiral Michael Rogers, the director of the National Security Agency and commander of the U.S. Cyber Command testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee that the reason Department of Defense has been unable to fight back properly against Russian cyber attacks is because the president hasn’t given them directions to do so. Rogers explained that our legal framework and the chain of command prohibit him from taking unilateral action without permission from higher up.
