Another WH Staff member resigns no name as yet...
Did Trump approve the Rats’ Intel-memo release yet?
No? Not yes with redacts and maybe an explanation list?
Why? Why not let the liars make fools of themselves?

By John R. Schindler

It was therefore a welcome breath of fresh air recently when Robert Hannigan, a former British spy boss, sat down for an interview with the BBC and spoke his mind.
Hannigan, who headed GCHQ (Britains NSA) from late 2014 to early 2017, had a top-secret front-row seat to recent events, and his comments were rendered more scathing by their measured delivery...
No Western country has been more directly impacted by this new form of Russian information warfare than the United States, which saw the events of 2016 transform our already nasty politics into something beyond mere partisanship.
Theres no denying Russias culpability here. As our Intelligence Community assessed, Moscow sabotaged our 2016 election with cyberespionage and online Active Measures to hurt Hillary Clinton, boost Donald Trump, and generally foment political turmoil in Russias Main Adversary. This 21st century espionage operation relied heavily on social media, especially Kremlin-linked trolls and bots, to hurt the Democrats by spreading disinformationin other words, fake newswith lightning speed...

Former GCHQ boss, Robert Hannigan, says that social media organisations have huge power over governments, and that over recent years Russia is the single country that kept him awake at night.

Trump Says He Won’t Declassify Democratic Russia Memo
9 Feb: Psychology Today: Flaws in the Algo: How Social Media Fuel Political Extremism
by Christopher Lane Ph.D.

In Polarization, Partisanship and Junk News Consumption over Social Media in the U.S., the culmination of a three-month study supported by the National Science Foundation and published earlier this week, Oxford researcher Vidya Narayanan and colleagues found that Facebook pages tied to the extreme hard right are responsible for circulating more junk news than all the other [social media] audiences put together. On Twitter, meanwhile, a network of Trump supporters shares the widest range of known junk news sources and circulates more junk news than all the other groups put together....
Coincidentally, the same day the Oxford study released, the New York Observer ran the crucial, well-sourced article Social Media Is Helping Putin Kill Our Democracy by John R. Schindler, a security and counterintelligence expert and former National Security Agency analyst. Drawing on a significant amount of evidence, including a detailed BBC interview with Robert Hannigan, a former British spy boss discussing the role of foreign actors in stoking disinformation and leaking via cyberespionage, Schindler outlines what he calls the malignant influence of social media, particularly when its linked to authoritarian regimes seeking to undermine the West...
He joins sociologist and tech scholar Zeynep Tufekci warning in the latest issue of Wired that we’re currently living through “the democracy-poisoning golden age of free speech” and Australian journalist Chris Zappone detailing in The Age that Silicon Valley’s “techno-libertarians” are “a weak link in democracy’s defense against authoritarians...
Just yesterday, NBC News independently confirmed that Russians penetrated U.S. voter systems(link is external) during the 2016 election...
Still, with the White House refusing to confirm with seventeen U.S. intelligence agencies that Russia meddled in the 2016 election, while actively blocking Congressional action on sanctions as a reprisal for such meddling, it is hard to see how such corrective action could advance, at least at the federal level...
He said “no” as presently constituted!
Link above. I know nothing about the news source.
Hoo doggies! Liberal heads are exploding all over the place. Good thing they don’t have any brains.
The White House still gets to put its cover sheet on top of the memo, just like the last one.
If there are redactions, the reasoning will be noted there.
Let’s wait and see. If he doesn’t declassify it, it goes to the full house for a vote.
WHAT'S THE POINT OF WINNING AN ELECTION IF THE OTHER SIDE GETS EQUAL WEIGHT? THIS IS ALL BS AND MUST BE STOPPED.
Thank you. Hot off the presses.

Trump orders revisions to Dems’ FISA rebuttal memo, halting release
Looking forward to seeing how Trump uses withholding declassifying the memo to our advantage.
