President Trump fired off a barrage of tweets Thursday morning, hammering away at the "big Dem scam" and "big Dem HOAX!" in the aftermath of former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson's testimony the day before about Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 USA election.
Johnson described the steps he took once he learned of the hacking of the Democratic National Committee, his fears about an attack on the election itself and his rationale for designating US election systems, including polling places and voter registration databases, as critical infrastructure in early January, two weeks before Donald Trump's inauguration.
"Both publicly and privately, my staff and I repeatedly encouraged state and local election officials to seek our cybersecurity assistance", Johnson said.
Tension between Russian and the U, S. grew on another front, too: The Kremlin voiced displeasure Wednesday about new United States sanctions against Russia and called off much-anticipated talks with a senior U.S administration official in response.

Johnson pointed to his decision in August to designate the country's election system as critical.
In his testimony, Johnson said the DNC shrugged off the help.

Intelligence agencies have concluded hackers stole information from the phishing operation and provided it to WikiLeaks seeking to impact the US presidential election.
In early January, Johnson designated US election systems such as polling places and voter registration databases as critical infrastructure.
Trump acknowledged on Friday he was under investigation in the probe of alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 race and possible collusion by his campaign, and seemed to assail the Justice Department official overseeing the inquiry.
Fortunately for Spicer, now he doesn't have to bother finding the time to ask his boss whether he believes the 16 intelligence agencies who have all concluded that the Russians did in fact try to meddle in our election.
They clarified that the attacks are not thought to have been conducted against vote tallying machines but other parts of the election management infrastructure - perhaps to undermine voter confidence in the eventual result rather than actually alter the count.
ADAM SCHIFF: Why wasn't it more important to tell the American people the length and breadth of what the Russians were doing to interfere in an election than any risk that it might be seen as putting your hand on the scale? Voters cast ballots in roughly 185,000 precincts spread over 9,000 jurisdictions during the 2016 presidential election. Elections are also subject to rigorous and elaborate rules that govern how and what equipment is used.
