CIA Director Mike Pompeo was recently asked about Russian attempts to interfere in the U.S. election, and his response included this:
Asked if Russia interfered in the US election Pompeo says: "of course..& in the last one, & the one before that & the one before that"

That troubled one of the members of The Resistance in the House, Rep. Adam Schiff:
Disturbed to see CIA Director trivialize Russian interference in our election. 2016 not comparable to anything in the past. He knows better. https://t.co/ZbbSstGE1B

If Hillary Clinton had won would Democrats even be talking “Russia” ever hour of every day? And is it “trivializing” the present to say something similar has happened in the past? In any case, Rep. Schiff alarmed The Resistance:

Pompeo is a collaborator, hand-picked by Trump.

Rumor has it that Pompeo is a "black hat", future President Schiff. And not surprising, as he was picked for the job by Devin Nunes.

Schiff has in the past also claimed it’s a “fact” Russia “hacked our election” before slowly pivoting.
