Unsubstantiated rumors that Russia hacked into the Presidential Election are becoming a serious threat to the peaceful transition of power.
The CIA has alleged that Russia conducted a cyberattack to help Donald Trump win. However, the FBI refuses to accept the CIA’s assessment because there is so little evidence to support it.
The U.S. federal government has 17 intelligence agencies, and President Obama has directed all of them to investigate Russia’s involvement in the election. The CIA is the only one claiming that Russia swayed the election.
Officials from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), which oversees all U.S. intelligence agencies, do not support the CIA’s claim.
Still, some Hillary Clinton supporters are calling for an “Electoral Revolt,” in which electors would vote against their own states to install Hillary Clinton as President.
