GOP Missing the Real Elephant in the Room

Brian C. Joondeph

Is it really a "sub-issue" that American intelligence agents are spying on and attempting to undermine a lawfully elected president and his administration? Where to start? How about President Obama’s admonition to Donald Trump last October, when Mrs. Clinton was on her way to a landslide electoral victory and Mr. Trump was headed back to reality TV. Trump claimed that the election was rigged against him. Obama advised Trump, "Stop whining and go try to make his case to get votes." Which he did. Going further, Mr. Obama added that there was, "no serious person" who would suggest it was possible to rig American elections. I presume this statement included the Russians. Yet to Senator Corker, there is still concern that Russia “hacked” the election. Despite the U.S. intelligence community finding that the Russians, “were not involved in vote tallying.” Did the Russians try to meddle, influence, propagandize? Sure. What’s new about that?........... More.
