Claiming Russia did it

"Over the course of the summer, WikiLeaks published tens of thousands of hacked emails from the Democratic National Committee and from John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Some Democrats have suggested that the controversies and bad publicity generated by the emails dumps — which only affected their party — contributed to Mr Trump’s victory in the election." (Financial Times, Dec. 9)

Do you know any undecideds or independents or Democrats who changed their minds or chose their candidate based on DNC emails? Maybe they should have, but her people were very loyal. One video of Trump 10 years ago ago sent his supporters fleeing. No. No one left her. The tipping point, according to a Clinton researcher tracking undecideds, was her calling us deplorables, and that's not Russian hacking. That's her getting a laugh at a fund raiser. Did Russia issue that October report on Obamacare premium increases? No. The polls noticed. Jill Stein could be a Putin plant, but I doubt it. She pulled enough votes from Clinton to give Trump the electoral votes he needed.

Wikileaks is 10 years old--why is our Gov't just now deciding it's a problem? Is it the loss of Obama's legacy and someone has to be blamed? Democrats were thrilled at the Gitmo prisoner leaks and the leaking of Sarah Palin e-mails in 2008. Were the Russians behind the 2008 presidential loses, or Clinton's loss in the primaries despite her win in the popular vote? Why isn't 10 years enough time to do anything except give Bradley Manning a sex change?
