John Bolton: Russia Hack Could Be A 'False Flag Operation' By Obama Regime

Or the crazy just keeps on getting crazier.
Views:

So let me get this straight here. The potential #2 man at our State Department in the incoming Trump administration is suggesting that the current Obama administration is capable and more than willing to undermine democracy in the United States for political gain, but they just aren't as good at it as the Russians?

This is crazy Alex Jones territory we're in with these Trump picks. They're normalizing conspiracy theory politics, just as Trump himself has done. Basically nothing less than undermining public trust in American democracy itself.

And nobody says a goddamn thing.

Ambassador John Bolton claimed Sunday that hacks during the election season could have been "a false flag" operation — possibly committed by the Obama administration itself.

In an interview with Fox News' Eric Shawn, Bolton questioned why FBI Director James Comey said during the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private server, there was no direct evidence found of foreign intelligence service penetration, but cyber fingerprints were found in regards to the presidential election.

"It is not at all clear to me just viewing this from the outside, that this hacking into the DNC and the RNC computers was not a false flag," Bolton said. "So the question has to be asked, why did the Russians run their smart intelligence service against Hillary's server, but their dumb intelligence service against the election?"

Shawn then asked Bolton — who has been mentioned as a possible Trump appointment — if he was accusing someone in "the administration or in the intelligence community of" the alleged false flag.

"We just don't know," Bolton said. "But I believe that the intelligence community has been politicized in the Obama administration to a very significant degree."
