re: #199 ObserverArt
This missed a critical point. Trump asked for their help. They delivered. Full stop. The consequence of that help or what looks like a pretty big swing at it, pales before this fact imho. Whatever Putins motives, (the red herring in play) leaked email, hacking, the disinfo campaigns… we really can’t escape the sum of those parts. Obamas response befits his record- can best be described as measured.
In some ways the media again overstates it’s own impact here. Who says Putin was doing this for Trump vs who says it’s about payback for the Orange revolution, Crimea sanctions, or just long term superpower machinations. Pffft. I don’t care. The Russians interfered as best as they dared. Got caught. Wrote more on this at Thanos Page that is featured.
