Questions about Russia

Manchurian candidate? So, the entire intelligence community has concluded that Russian hackers, directed by Vladimir Putin, intended to influence the recent presidential election. I wonder how the citizens who lined up behind and voted for Donald Trump feel about the uncontested facts behind four simple questions:

1. Why did the Russians not release any negative information about the RNC or its candidate?

2. Why did the Russians only seek to discredit the Democratic candidate?

3. Why has Trump so obsessively defended Vladimir Putin and Russia?

4. Why would Trump believe anything Julian Assange would say with regard to the hacks?

Putin, Russia and Assange are not friends of the United States. Their actions over several decades demonstrate that. All citizens of the U.S. should be outraged that enemies of our country successfully sought to imperil one of the basic foundational elements of America: our right to honestly elect the candidate of our universal choice to be our leader. Why is the political party that proclaims itself to be the party of freedom and liberty nearly universally silent with regard to this act of war against us?

Pay close attention to Trump’s actions when Putin begins expansion actions in Eastern Europe.
