If true, that means Trump has being lying about it since then.
Possibly constituting an impeachable offense.

WASHINGTON — Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election.

The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation.

Ok, since Barry Hussein was told the same thing as far back as 2014, and did nothing, what should have happened to him. Since Barry Hussein did not stop it during the 2016 election, what should have happened to him?

Seriously, how the fuck do you get to an impeachable offense by Trump simply because he was told about things that happened on Barry Hussein's watch that Barry Hussein did nothing about?

learn your history. This is from the Nixon Articles of Impeachment.

making or causing to be made false or misleading public statements for the purpose of deceiving the people of the United States into believing that a thorough and complete investigation had been conducted with respect to allegations of misconduct on the part of personnel of the executive branch of the United States and personnel of the Committee for the Re-election of the President, and that there was no involvement of such personnel in such misconduct:

Just to bring you up to speed (if that is possible) Obama was informed of Russian efforts to affect our elections in 2014.

Obama did nothing.

From OP article..
In March, the Department of Homeland Security declared that Russia was targeting the American electric power grid, continuing to riddle it with malware that could be used to manipulate or shut down critical control systems. Intelligence officials have described it to Congress as a chief threat to American security.
Speaking of which, was it ever explained why the lights went out during trump's wouldacoulda speech?

You know, that would shut up any person with an IQ above room temperature, I mean, not only did you answer why it would be an impeachable offense, you also posted precedence in prior cases. But I suspect that the member in question will not only continue to make an ass out of himself, but will most likely change the goal posts in an attempt to save face.
