Russia -- and Wikileaks -- Won the Election

Maybe Wikileaks' hacked emails didn't throw the election to Donald Trump, but they had an effect, and they were published for his benefit.

So it appears in light of remarks made yesterday by the head of the National Security Agency.


The NSA's director, Michael S. Rogers, blamed Wikileaks for  "furthering a nation-state's goals" by publishing hacked emails before the presidential election. 

The emails came, you'll recall, from the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign. 

"There shouldn't be doubt in anyone's mind," Rogers said:
"This was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect."  
If that doesn't scare you, it should. It sounds like The Manchurian Candidate

Rogers was speaking at a Wall Street Journal conference on November 15, 2016, according to Quartz.com, which published an article on the interview the same day. See the article here.
