    • One of the things that makes me a little crazy lately is how many politicians invoke the “but they have messed with our elections!” accusations as if this is absolutely beyond belief.

      Excuse me, but EVERYONE messes with elections in countries other than their own - sometimes on the up-and-up as in endorsing certain candidates, and sometimes in much more covert ways. (Even including assasination! 😵)

      My understanding is that the CIA has supported the toppling of legitimately elected governments in order to install dictators who were pro-US. The US Military have also trained the military of these dictators, increasing their hold on power.

      However, when Russia is successful in influencing our elections, I do want our politicians to cry “foul” and to follow through with actions to prevent reoccurrence.
