Keep coming up with justifications for foreign powers to influence our elections. You think that Donald Trump isn't corrupt? You think that the RNC isn't corrupt? Remember when Bill Clinton was being impeached over lying about Lewinski and what a "scandal" that was?
Who was one of the GOP Congressmen leading the charge? Dennis Hastert. Do I need to remind you of what came out on him?
To pretend that the Russians are doing us any great favor is the height of self-delusion. They're not trying to clean up our politics, they're trying to infuence the outcome of our election.
Now ask yourself what it is that they stand to gain from that.
So don't go preaching:
"That is if you respect America and what this country is supposed to be."
If you need a history lesson about how corrupt American politics has ALWAYS been, hit me up and we can discuss it.
Cheerleading state-sponsorsed Russian hackers breaking into American computer networks and trying to sway the outcome of our election because they're doing it to one side and not the other and that fits your own political agenda.
Cool story. Real patriotic of you.
