Sen. Hassan Cites Fake News Story in Confirmation Hearing

Making her Senatorial debut in the DHS confirmation hearing, Senator Hassan cited her deep concern about the Russians hacking the Vermont power grid as the Washington Post reported a few weeks back.  She evidently didn’t get the update that the story was totally debunked and eventually retracted (fake news strikes again!).  Fortunately for Maggs, General Kelley was gracious realizing he was dealing with someone not really together and just went with it and didn’t embarrass her with a correction.

Oof.  These are going to be a long six years.  Hopefully, she can start to pay attention and keep up with what’s going on.  Otherwise, we’ll be in for more cringe worthy stories like when Ann Kuster didn’t realize Benghazi was in the Middle East.
