If you’ve watched the entire testimony today on “Russia Hacking of U.S. Elections” as CSPAN has titled it, you’ll know that it’s been entirely focused on trashing President-elect Donald Trump. The grandstanding began with RINO Senator John McCain who has done NOTHING until now to address cybersecurity. McCain began his testimony directly addressing the election as did several Democrats after that.
McCain: Our intelligence agencies concluded unanimously that the Russian government directed compromises of emails from US persons and institutions including from US political organizations.

DNI Clapper repeatedly refused to answer questions and referred to a report coming out next week…THIS is why this entire showboat is a joke!
Furthermore, DNI Clapper has been proven a liar before so we have no reason to believe him now:
March 12, 2013- Senator Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asks Director of National Intelligence James Clapper “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”. Director Clapper answered “No, sir … not wittingly.” Later that year, it was revealed the the NSA was indeed collecting telephone metadata of millions of law-abiding Americans.
