(Before It's News)

If this election wasn’t the strangest on record, it just hit peak stupidity. Some electors, with the backing of the Clinton campaign, are saying they want intelligence briefings to learn more about supposed interference in the election by the Russians.

From Politico:

In its first show of public support for efforts questioning the legitimacy of Donald Trump’s victory, Hillary Clinton’s campaign said it is supporting a request by members of the Electoral College for an intelligence briefing on foreign intervention in the presidential election.

“The bipartisan electors’ letter raises very grave issues involving our national security,” Clinton’s former campaign chairman John Podesta said in a statement on Monday. “Electors have a solemn responsibility under the Constitution and we support their efforts to have their questions addressed.”

“Each day in October, our campaign decried the interference of Russia in our campaign and its evident goal of hurting our campaign to aid Donald Trump,” he said. “Despite our protestations, this matter did not receive the attention it deserved by the media in the campaign. We now know that the CIA has determined Russia’s interference in our elections was for the purpose of electing Donald Trump. This should distress every American.”

This is asinine. First of all, the “conclusion” that Russia wanted Donald Trump to win is one that is being disputed by the FBI. The “determination” made by the CIA was made by political appointees within the CIA, not agents themselves. In addition, Podesta was the one stupid enough to get fooled by a phishing scam. He should learn to take more care as to what he clicks on in his emails than whining about Trump and Putin.

Second, that there are electors are running around demanding intelligence briefings, makes a mockery of the electoral process and seeing Hillary Clinton’s stooges signing on this plan makes it clear they’re nothing but a bunch of sore losers.

Third, electors have a job to do and it doesn’t including demanding they get to see classified information because their hackles are up about the election results. They have a job to do. Get it done and stop behaving like this is an episode of ’24.’
