Report: Senior Russian Officials Celebrated Donald Trumpís Election Victory

American intelligence agencies intercepted communications that show senior officials in the Russian government celebrating Donald Trump’s election victory and congratulating themselves for helping him win.

It was this reaction, in part, that allowed the intelligence community to come to the conclusion that the Russian government was involved in efforts to influence the election to assist Trump. Other information in the intelligence report includes Russia’s use of actors to provide hacked information to WikiLeaks.

It was noted that this report was delivered to President Barack Obama today and will be presented to President-elect Donald Trump in his meeting with intelligence leaders tomorrow.

Officials wouldn’t indicate if these communications were contained in the report delivered to Obama. However, one WaPo source had the following to say about the Russians’ actions.

“The Russians felt pretty good about what happened on Nov. 8 and they also felt pretty good about what they did,” a senior U.S. official said.

The Senate held a hearing with intelligence heads today to get more information about Russian hacking efforts. During the hearing, James Clapper indicated that Russia was also behind the dissemination of a lot of fake news.

Trump has been reluctant throughout to accept the assessments of the intelligence community, calling them “ridiculous” and seemingly siding with WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange over America’s intelligence agencies.

Why wouldn’t they celebrate? Hillary had already threatened war against Russia if she were elected.

Boy, I sure did celebrate too. I think if this was true that this would not be classified. They can show it to us.

Oh OK, I see. The US “intelligence” agencies just compromised their capability to read foreign communications. Uh huh!!!

“The Russians felt pretty good about what happened on Nov. 8”

Well, yeah...
The result literally avoided a WAR between the United States and Russia.
I was happier than hell about it, as well as my ranking US Army family members.

Under Obama the CIA leaks don't come from whistle blowers as much as they come from “senior intelligence officials.”

This is a test to see if they can bend reality to their will. If it comes from the current government or media it’s a probable lie.

What nations were people expecting to mourn Obama leaving office, and Hillary Clinton who wanted to continue his same policies having lost the election?

Of course Russia is happy.

So is....

About 150 of the world’s other nations.

What a major scandal. /s

I feel good about Trump winning and I compliment my self for helping him win.

So that makes me a Russian spy?

Logic is worthless unless it is based on solid facts.

What are the facts?

We have found out what the Clinton’s did.

What did the Russians do?

This only proves that Russian Officials are not imbeciles.

God help humanity if that psychotic Nazi hate-witch had won.

But Muzzies didn't party on 9-11. Damn right they did.

And...IIRC, the DC sniper was jubilant as he sat in a bar.

Leaks are starting for the “motive” hacking report that will supposedly be released next week. Clapper talked about in the Senate hearing today. The kenyan is getting ready to say Putin campaigned for Trump. Dump one in the punch bowl and run. An obama specialty.
