Former Obama DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson drove a stake through the heart of the Democrats’ Russia conspiracy about the election this week. When asked, Johnson stated plainly that Russia didn’t change any of the votes in the election.
The Washington Examiner reported:
Former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson: No votes changed by Russians in 2016 election
Former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Wednesday morning Russian interference into the 2016 election did not result in the changing of any actual votes.
“I know of no evidence that through cyber intrusion, votes were altered or suppressed in some way,” Johnson told the House Intelligence Committee.
Johnson added that while no votes were changed, he couldn’t speak to whether the DNC hacks impacted public opinion.
The former Homeland Security secretary testified before the panel on Russian meddling on the 2016 election, which the House and Senate Intelligence Committees and the FBI are investigating.
Johnson also spoke on his decision in January 2016 to designate election infrastructure as a subsector of critical infrastructure, which made election infrastructure a priority for cybersecurity assistance and protections. That decision received some pushback from people who were concerned about a federal take over of elections, which are traditionally run by states.

Sorry, Democrats. The Russia thing is pretty much a clased case at this point.
