Odds and Ends

Well, there are people who are smart enough not to buy into that claim. Sure, the deep state doesn't like how Hillary lost... because she's the preferred candidate of the deep state, having voted for the Patriot Act and the Iraq War, as well as being vocally critical of whistleblowers such as Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, and Edward Snowden. However, there is several points where this argument falls quite short, including the fact that the data transfer of the e-mails that were leaked was initiated on the east coast.
Now, did Russia try to influence the election with posting fake news? Maybe. But I think it's more likely that Hillary lost because she didn't take accountability for what was in the e-mails, choosing instead to blame Russia and fingerpoint when anything went wrong in her campaign. She was running to be PRESIDENT. She should have more accountability than a two-year-old who is caught red-handed when all the cherry popsicles go missing.
