    So here's the thing, I have seen very little evidence that points to the RF “hacking the election.” The problem is that the FBI and CIA refuse to release any evidence that they may have to support their assertions.

    The hacked election narrative is a thing pushed by the HRC camp to justify her loss of the presidential election. So, it serves to stop the Democratic Party taking a good look at itself. I stopped listening when I heard a Democrat (from the DNC, I think) claiming that one of the main vectors of this “hacking” was the RF owned media organization 'RT'. This is just too bizarre! I know what RT is but if I was to walk down the street asking the people I doubt that I would find one person who would know of it. It cannot possibly have had any influence at all.
