This country and its intelligence apparatus doesn’t have lawfully proscribed processes to provide intelligence briefings to the electoral college….

As well as most everyone else.  Hell, if the EC is going to get a briefing, why can’t I have a briefing?

    yeah, that seems silly to me, too.

    for better or worse, this is how the system worked. The russians definitely interfered, but only thru propaganda means–they did not get into the electoral machinery and change vote totals, etc. They managed to convince some people to vote a certain way. probably they lied and spread misinformation in order to accomplish that goal, but that happens all the time in campaigns.

    Sadly, not only is lying not against the law, but a huge number of people in this country seem not to care about it. Frankly, i can’t see why they should care more about lies from the Russians than they do about lies from the candidates, but they don’t seem to care about lies from the candidates at all.

    We got the President we deserve.
