    The National Security Agency (NSA) has seen no information that alleged Russian interference had affected vote tally in US states during the 2016 presidential election, NSA Director Michael Rogers said on Monday.

    "No, I do not," Rogers said in a House Select Intelligence Committee hearing when asked if he had any evidence that Russian cyber actors changed vote tallies in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Florida, North Carolina and Ohio.

    FBI Director James Comey also said that his agency had no such evidence.

    However, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is currently conducting a probe into Russia's alleged meddling in 2016 US presidential election, FBI Director James Comey confirmed in a hearing on Monday.

    "I have been authorized by the Department of Justice to confirm that the FBI, as part of our counterintelligence mission, is investigating the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election," Comey stated. "And that includes investigating the nature of any links between the individuals associated with Trump campaign and the Russian government."

    Comey advised not to draw any conclusions before the investigation has ended. However, he gave no timetable when the probe would be finished.

      Was the Trump team out of touch with the people and reality that they need the Russia help? Or was the Trump team so broke that they need Russia financial help? Or are there millions of Russians in the US out canvassing for votes? Or are the Russians having superior hacking knowledge/skills that our voting system are sitting duck? What about Mrs. Clinton one year screaming, angry, pointing fingers, lying, covering up, up and down the states money, energy, and lying to win? They just simply don't work or what?
