Donald Trump has been talking about things being rigged against him left and right the entire presidential campaign and the media did not hesitate to ridicule him for it among other reasons.
However, despite the negative portrayal he received from the press, it seems Trump had a more important and powerful ally to help him win the race – Russia.
Speaking about rigged results, on Wednesday, the head of the National Security Agency stated that a “nation-state” targeted Hillary Clinton’s campaign in order to manipulate the results of the American election.
NSA director and Naval officer Michael S. Rogers said Wikileaks was publishing hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton’s campaign team weeks ahead of the election.
“There shouldn’t be any doubt in anybody’s minds, this was not something that was done casually, this was not something that was done by chance, this was not a target that was selected purely arbitrarily. This was a conscious effort by a nation-state to attempt to achieve a specific effect.”
It is obvious he is referring to Russia in his statement.
In October, the U.S. Intelligence Community accused Russian officials of authorizing the hacks to interfere with the election.
Now, many Clinton supporters are asking for an investigation in.
The NSA director issued some more statements on Twitter and shook celebrities did not help but comment on the shocking news as well. Here are a few of them:
