Whoa! NSA Director CONFIRMS A 'Nation-State' Used WikiLeaks To Help Sway The U.S. Election! *COUGH*RUSSIA*COUGH*

Well, this is terrifying.

Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump constantly insisted the election was "rigged" against him due to the media painting him as a fraudulent, sexually assaulting lunatic. (Which he isn't NOT, so…)

While the media may have not been Trump's biggest friend, the President-elect apparently secured an even stronger ally to help him win the presidential race: Russia!

On Wednesday, the head of the National Security Agency confirmed that a "nation-state" consciously targeted Hillary Clinton's campaign in order to affect the outcome of the U.S. election!

In response to a question, NSA director and Naval officer Michael S. Rogers said Wikileaks was advancing the goals of a nation state by publishing hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's campaign team weeks ahead of the election.

He explained at a Wall Street Journal forum in New York:

"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."

Though Rogers did not name the nation-state, it's quite clear who he was referring to.

In October, the U.S. Intelligence Community (which includes the NSA) issued a statement accusing Russian officials of authorizing the hacks to interfere with the election — naming Wikileaks and other hackers as part of the "Russia-directed" effort.

Needless to say, many Clinton supporters (and concerned citizens) are freaking out over this confirmation and demanding an investigation from congress.
