Trump Has No Idea What The Big Deal Is About Russia Hacking, His Advisers Are Going Wild
Donald Trump seems to like to point fingers, but at the same time he doesn’t take responsibility himself. This is referring to Trump’s constant attack on former President Barrack Obama, blaming him for not acting against the Russian hack – but Trump himself hasn’t done anything either.

“I’ve seen no evidence of it,” the senior administration official said, referring to the few signs that Trump is spending any time on Russia or cyber threats.
Intelligence officials have grown concerned, saying that Russia poses a “major threat” to the U.S. election system. They have warned that they could attempt an interference in the next election, but the White House doesn’t seem to consider it a serious threat.
National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers spoke with lawmakers about the lack of interest at the White House has shown about the Russian cyber-threat
Rogers also said that they should be concerned about China, North Korea and Iran, who are also attempting to hack the United States in future elections.

McCain is one of many people in the Republican party that have grown concerned about the lack of interest in Russian hacking.
“We haven’t done anything,” Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said. “We passed a bill through the Senate, and it’s hung up in the House. Tell me what we’ve done?
