The media has been positively inflamed by the CIA report and it’s implication that Russian hackers interfered in the election to Donald Trump’s benefit, all at the behest of an “unnamed source” featured in a Washington Post article who made these claims.
With only 4 days to go until the electoral college officially casts their votes for president, the Russian hacker narrative is reaching a fever pitch among the leftist media outlets. There is one question that none of the journalist seem to be asking, but Donald Trump did in a Tweet sent earlier this morning.
If Russia, or some other entity, was hacking, why did the White House wait so long to act? Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?

“If Russia, or some other entity, was hacking, why did the White House wait so long to act? Why did they only complain after Hillary lost?” Trump wrote.
A valid question, and one that if the press was actually doing their job, they would be asking.
Last week, Obama had ordered an official review by the CIA of the Russian hacker claims and mandated that it be released before Trump takes office on January 21st. How convenient that Obama, whose legacy is at risk by a Donald Trump presidency, will have a report released that can potentially cast a shadow over Trump’s victory and his legitimacy as a president (at least in the minds of the press).
Perhaps Obama has a more political agenda in requesting this CIA report, considering it’s highly unlikely he would be taking these same steps if Hillary Clinton had won over Donald Trump.
