I think the fact that the mainstream media continues to focus on Russia is partly evidence that the opposition here is really coming from the Deep State, from Democratic operatives and a few people from the Republican Party - they all are dedicated to achieving one end, which is to bring down the Trump Administration. They want to stage a color revolution and overturn the results of the elections. Therefore, they keep on beating the drum: “It’s the Russians, the Russians hacked the CIA.” They don’t have anything else! So, I think, they will use any excuse to keep coming back to that. We are hearing just a lot of speculation.
I don't think that anybody is really surprised about these revelations. Everybody knew that we had very capable technical means for spying on all sorts of people.
Russia’s very able Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Maria Zakharova, said that the US presidential campaign is “simply some sort of a global shame” unworthy of the American people.
She certainly hit the nail on the head.
