    Here's an issue that should unite us all....although there is still a major reluctance by Trump to admit that Russia interfered with our electoral processes since such might, "undermine his legitimacy. as POTUS."

    In Russia probe, Senate panel urges stronger election security

    Issuing the first report in the review of Russian interference in the 2016 elections, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Tuesday that a range of stepped up election security measures must be taken by local, state, and federal officials to address a series of gaps, which lawmakers in both parties say Moscow was obviously trying to exploit.

    “It is clear the Russian government was looking for the vulnerabilities in our election system,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), the chairman of the Intelligence panel, which has been working for over a year to uncoil what cyber attacks Moscow was engaging in during the 2016 campaign for President.

    “Russia attempted to penetrate 21 states; we know they were successful in penetrating at least one voter database,” Burr added at a bipartisan news conference on Capitol Hill.

    The panel issued a two page summary of what Senators say should be changed, ranging from giving grants to states to help secure their election systems, and pushing states to replaced outdated voting machines, and ensure that such vote counting equipment is not connected to the internet.

    One idea suggested by committee members is for states to go back to paper ballots in the future, to insure that overseas actors can’t hack their way into the voting process.

    As Sen. Kamala Harris stated, “Paper ballots might actually be one of the smartest systems, because Russia cannot hack a piece of paper”

    There is no evidence Russia interfered with anything. By the way Kamala Harris is against VOTER ID laws which is the most obvious way to insure fair elections because Kamala says that an ID card is "racist!"

    Again, what evidence do you have that Putin affected the outcome of the election?

    Yeah but who was in charge of security when Russia was "meddling in elections", Brennan? Barry Hussein was in charge and he seemed more interested in punishing political enemies with the IRS and selling uranium sites to Russia.
