Of course, there's always foreign interference. The question is whether foreign interference was significant enough to change races, or perhaps to leave American winners with a sense of obligation to the foreign actors. But we have a new development, via Sundance at CTH, DNI John Ratcliffe Tells CBS News: “There Was Foreign Election Interference”, Election Report Now Delayed
Well this is very interesting. On the same day Christopher Krebs, who was the country’s top cybersecurity official during the presidential election (before being fired), testified before the Senate’s Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee about no election interference,… according to CBS News Catherine Herridge the Director of National Intelligence, John Ratcliffe, is now saying there WAS foreign interference in the 2020 election. WATCH:
Breitbart, Deep State Pushes to Deep-Six Intelligence Report Demonstrating Chinese Interference in 2020 Election. Clearly a fight is going on within the intelligence community over how seriously to report certain foreign activities. Did the the Russian support Trump, and the Chinese support Biden with overt actions? Probably. Did the Iranian muck around as much as they could get away with? Almost certainly. No doubt the Democrat leaners in the community, who seem to constitute a majority, or at least a powerful minority will push the idea that the Russian efforts were concrete, while the Chinese efforts were not, and will claim the Ratcliffe is pushing the China angle to deflect from Russian help to Trump (and as well deserved revenge for the treatment of Trump by Brennan and Clapper, who engineered the report for the 2016 election to push the Russia collusion hoax. Anyway, this one bears watching carefully, given recent developments (both the hacking of US systems, allegedly by the Russians, and the payment between the Dominion software company from China.

Election fraud is the secret “assassin’s mace” of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that has long confounded security hawks, according to tech billionaire and entrepreneur Patrick Byrne, who back in August assembled a cyber intelligence team to analyze the U.S. voting system.
“For 10 years or more, there have been references to a coming ‘assassin’s mace’ in the Chinese literature—where they take out the United States with one stroke,” Byrne told The Epoch Times’ “American Thought Leaders” program. “The national security community in the United States has been trying to figure this out: Is it their new aircraft carrier? Is that the hypersonic missile? Is it this, that, is it an EMP?”
“I don’t think so, ” he told host Jan Jekielek. “The one stroke that takes the United States out is what we’re experiencing right now.” The 2020 vote involved “massive election fraud,” he says. “Not voter fraud, but election fraud.”
. . .
He says his team of online security experts now believes Chinese developers are “under the hood” of the software that has infiltrated at least two of the main voting systems in the United States.

If you’re smart enough to understand all the statistical stuff in this lengthy report, perhaps you can explain it in the comments. Quickly skimming it, I understood that what they are saying is that, compared to expected results — based on previous elections, voter demographics, etc. — the reported results are significantly anomalous in five states that Joe Biden allegedly won. “[T]he model’s predictions match the reported results in all other states, i.e. states where no fraud has been alleged, but predicts Trump won majorities in five disputed states (AZ, GA, NV, PA and WI) and 49.68% of the vote in the sixth (MI).”
I am, and I have enough statistical background to be skeptical of such simple statistical models. It was an unprecedented election, and in unprecedented circumstances, unlikely things actually occur (they occur all the time too, that's why they're unlikely, not impossible). That said, I think they cheated like hell in Philly, Detroit, Atlanta and Minneapolis, to name a few of the most important places.

I saw someone on Twitter say: Did Mitch McConnell also congratulate Chuck Schumer on winning the Senate?
Because that's what King RINO just did.
Do they really think people are going to turn out for weaklings and traitors and virtual Chinese agents?
while Newsweek whines that QAnon Supporters Vow to Leave GOP After Mitch McConnell Accepts Election Result. All six of them.
