There’s plenty of focus on today’s House Intelligence Committee’s question of FBI Director James Comey in regards to probes of Russia hacks (with Dems attempting to insinuate that Russia “hacked the election”). Katie Pavlich wound the clock back to a time before Trump took office and asked a good question:
If this is really about protecting Democracy instead of Hillary Clinton, why did Obama ignore Russian hacking in 2015?

Comey testified that in the past Russia was “very noisy” about their hacking attempts, so it’s not as if such intrusions weren’t detected. The floor is open for answers:
@KatiePavlich The Obama administration didn't care about any of Russia's bs until Hillary lost.

@KatiePavlich it is possible to both investigate Russian interference and whether the Obama administration did enough to stop it.
