But She Said It Was Impossible


I'm not much of a conspiratorialist, but I've had this theory about why Trump, et al, kept trumpeting the idea that Hillary was rigging the election. It's the B'rer Rabbit theory: don't fling me in the briar patch. Probably there's a better analogy.

Anyhow, it is impossible that T's team knew they'd be hacking voting machines in key states? By "they" I mean, who knows, the Russians? So to pre-discourage team H from raising a stink, they kept hollering about rigging, successfully scamming Hillary and Ds, confident as they were, into assuring everyone rigging would be impossible.

And, then, voila:
A group of computer scientists believe they have evidence that suggests voting machines in Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania have been hacked and have been urging the Hillary Clinton campaign to ask for a recount in the three key states, according to a New York Magazine report. 
CNN confirmed that the experts have been in touch with John Podesta, Clinton's campaign chair, and Marc Elias, the campaign's general counsel. The group includes John Bonifaz, a voting rights attorney, and J. Alex Halderman, the director of the University of Michigan Center for Computer Security and Society, according to New York Magazine...
The soup in the whole article is a little thin, and it includes commentary from people who disagree. Still. We know hacking occurred during the campaign, that Russians appear to be pretty good at it, and that Trump and his gang are pretty cozy with them. So. Is it really all that outlandish?

Meanwhile, if team H does decide to pursue it, we can say for sure her words about rigging, pre-election, will be thrown back at her from more directions than just the right.

It's time to contact our senators and representatives and request that they urge Clinton to challenge the election results and demand an investigation.

Dear Senator < >:

Please urge Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff to challenge the election in light of information concerning potential voting machine hacking in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and potentially Michigan as reported in the New York magazine:
