Although the American media emphatically asserts that the Russian hacking did not change the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, there is a strong possibility that the voter databases were stolen to increase Trump’s vote count by fake votes.

Jared Kushner – the son-in-law of beleaguered US President Donald Trump – who is being questioned by the US authorities for his alleged connections with Russia that helped Trump win today issued a statement to Congressional Committees.
Kushner said in his statement that he did not collude, nor know of anyone else in the campaign who colluded, with any foreign government.
“I had no improper contacts. I have not relied on Russian funds to finance my business activities in the private sector.” Kushner stated in his 11-page statement. “I have tried to be fully transparent with regard to the filing of my SF-86 form, above and beyond what is required.”
Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka, indicated that he had no improper contacts. Hopefully, he said, this puts these matters to rest.
But this is perhaps not the end but the beginning of the matters. His statement also mentions the June 9, 2016 meeting with a Russian-American lawyer for which Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr, had called him to attend.
Although Kushner participated in that meeting to collect damaging information about Trump’s Democrat rival Hillary Clinton, he said it was not a useful interaction. “Meeting was a waste of our time,” Kushner said in his statement.
However, most political observers believe that Trump’s family members and people in his administration are mostly liars, and Trump himself is the liar-in-chief. They refuse to accept even hard facts and dismiss truthful findings about their dealings with Russia as ‘fake news.’
Although the American media emphatically asserts that the Russian hacking did not change the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, there is a strong possibility that the voter databases were stolen to increase Trump’s vote count by fake votes. So, it is a wrong narrative that outcome did not change. In a fair election, Hillary Clinton would have won.
It is also probable that Trump’s digital team colluded with the hackers to steal voter data and leverage it to harm Hillary Clinton so Trump could win.
Trump said today that the Congressional Committees and investigators must also probe Hillary’s crimes and Russia relations.
So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?

While the Congressional Committees and the Special Counsel Robert Mueller are trying to probe Trump-Russia ties, their speed of investigation is terribly slow. Instead of going through all this rigmarole, the US Congress must decide to first put Trump and his associates on lie-detector test to quickly know the truth. Investigations can then follow to decide about the punishments.
The interrogation must be extended to include Republicans such as Paul Ryan, Reince Priebus, Rudy Giuliani, Newt Gingrich, Mike Pence, and Mike Huckabee who are silently supporting Trump’s attempts to kill probe into Russian interference.
