In a Reuters Exclusive, the overseers of the "17 Intel agencies", (which the main stream media loves to quote as the main body of U.S. intelligence), is not endorsing the CIA's assessment that the Russians hacking operations were committed to put Trump in the White House.

While the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, (ODNI), does not dispute the CIA's assessment that the hacking operation exist and was employed during the election process, they found a "lack of conclusive evidence" to prove the Russians' intent was to promote Mr. Trump:

"The overseers of the U.S. intelligence community have not embraced a CIA assessment that Russian cyber attacks were aimed at helping Republican President-elect Donald Trump win the 2016 election, three American officials said on Monday.

While the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) does not dispute the CIA's analysis of Russian hacking operations, it has not endorsed their assessment because of a lack of conclusive evidence that Moscow intended to boost Trump over Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, said the officials, who declined to be named.

The position of the ODNI, which oversees the 17 agency-strong U.S. intelligence community, could give Trump fresh ammunition to dispute the CIA assessment, which he rejected as "ridiculous" in weekend remarks, and press his assertion that no evidence implicates Russia in the cyber attacks.

Trump's rejection of the CIA's judgment marks the latest in a string of disputes over Russia's international conduct that have erupted between the president-elect and the intelligence community he will soon command.

An ODNI spokesman declined to comment on the issue.

"ODNI is not arguing that the agency (CIA) is wrong, only that they can't prove intent," said one of the three U.S. officials. "Of course they can't, absent agents in on the decision-making in Moscow."" (link)

Editor's note: all bolds are mine.

The CIA had concluded that the Russians had hacked both Democrats and Republicans, and since only DNC information had been released, (leaked), they took the "leap" that Russians must have favored Trump.

An ODNI official called it, [the CIA’s assessment] “a thin reed upon which to base an analytical judgment”.

The FBI, (an investigative entity that relies on, and collects evidence that will stand up in court), also rejected/declined to accept the CIA's assessment based on the same conclusions at the ODNI.  To date, the RNC, (and its former head, Reince Priebus) have insisted their computers have not been hacked.

On November 8th, Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton overwhelmingly in the electoral college, the 200 + year old system, (designed by Hamilton, and other founding fathers of our Constitution), which determines the winner of U.S. Presidential Elections, not the nation-wide count of the popular vote, a favorite meme liberal democrats embrace because Mrs. Clinton won this tally.

Final electoral college election results gave Trump a 306-232 advantage, despite pollster's predictions that had Mrs. Clinton up by 6-8 points "nationally", and an "impenetrable blue wall" that would insure the Coronation of another Clinton possessed White House.

They were wrong.

Since the devastating defeat of the Democrats, (Clinton's run and their attempt to regain a Senate Majority), the liberal progressives have yet to accept the outcome.  Green Party candidate Jill Stein mounted a futile recount campaign, (in three blue states Clinton lost, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania), but that "campaign" ended on Monday, when Stein's assertions that voting machines were hacked, were rejected by state and federal courts.  To add insult to the recount campaign, final results in Wisconsin increased Trump's margin of victory in the state by 162 votes.

In Hillary Clinton's concession speech, (and Obama's shortly after), both of them expressed the importance of a peaceful transition of power in our election process.

“Donald Trump is going to be our president. We owe him an open mind and the chance to lead.  Our constitutional democracy enshrines the peaceful transfer of power and we don't just respect that, we cherish it”, said Mrs. Clinton.

Given the rioting, protest, recounts, and now this "Russian interference", it appears the Democrats are not heeding Clinton's advice.  Whether the CIA is now politically inserting themselves into this denial stage, remains to be seen.  

Stand by.
