“We did ask,” Denise Merrill, Connecticut secretary of state and the association’s top official, told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group Wednesday.
“And over-and-over again, they did say there was no credible threat that they had found. And they said that right through the election, and the next administration reiterated that. Over and over again when we asked, we were told there was no actual threat that they knew of,” Merrill said.
Asked if there were any private briefings for state election officials on possible Russian interference prior to the November 2016 voting, Merrill said, “No. We were not briefed on any of that. We were not told in advance.”
Merrill also claimed the administration failed to take state officials aside about a potential or real Russian threat to election machinery.
“That’s right because I don’t really think there was one,” she said.
Not only is there actual evidence of the Russians ‘hacking’ the 2016 Presidential election, former DNI James Clapper said AGAIN in an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd recently that he saw no “smoking gun” evidence of collusion between the Trump camp and Russian state actors.
The Trump-Russia hoax is an embarrassment to the U.S. The Democrats just won’t accept that Hillary Clinton was a big fat failure so they created a scandal out of thin air. The Russia hoax is also being used to distract from the unmasking of Trump and his private associates by the Obama administration.
