CNN’s Jake Tapper nails leaders for ignoring proof Russia hacked the 2016 election: Will they prevent it again?

Somewhere lost in President Donald Trump’s victory lap chanting “no collusion,” is that special counsel Robert Mueller proved that Russia did interfere with the 2016 elections. In a Sunday tweet, CNN host Jake Tapper wondered what leaders plan to do to fix it and prevent it from ever happening again.

Tapper was referring to a tweet from Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who tweeted, in all capital letters, that there were “multiple offers from Russian-affiliated individuals to assist the Trump campaign.” Whether or not Mueller found enough evidence to implicate the president, he did find enough evidence that Russia did whatever they could to assist the Trump campaign and lead them to victory in 2016.

“Not an unimportant emphasis — the Russians tried and they were, per Mueller, behind the hacks and serious campaigns of election interference,” Tapper tweeted. “What more will US leaders do to prevent that from happening again?”

All US intelligence agencies found that Russia tried to influence the 2016 election, but the president refused to believe it. Trump and the previously Republican House and Senate have extensively cut funding to election protection. Several Democrats had attempts at hacking their operations during the 2018 mid-term elections.

"This is also a moment where the preeminence of television in our political lives is going to come to the fore," Wilson said. "And Donald Trump knows this."

"That little nervous moment this morning, where 'I might watch a little' — no, Donald Trump will be glued to the screen with an IV drip and a catheter," Wilson predicted.

If Pence stepped off the vice presidential aircraft, one of the people he would have seen on the ground was under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for moving more than $100,000 of fentanyl from Massachusetts to New Hampshire," Politico reported.
