Trump’s disin­gen­u­ous de­nial of Rus­sian hack­ing dur­ing elec­tion

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: Cary Wolf­son,

“Should U.S. con­duct an in­quiry into al­le­ga­tions of Rus­sian hack­ing?” Dec. 20 let­ters to the edi­tor.

Bi­ased and fuzzy think­ing like that es­poused by let­ter­writer Thomas R. Bre­sadola needs to be coun­tered firmly and of­ten. His “So what? No harm, no foul” at­ti­tude misses the point. Don­ald Trump’s disin­gen­u­ous de­nial of Rus­sian hack­ing dur­ing the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion con­ve­niently over­looks the fact that, as The Mi­ami Her­ald ed­i­to­ri­al­ized, the hack­ing “marks the ero­sion of our na­tion’s sovereignty. It sig­nals the will­ful ac­cep­tance of an en­emy’s in­tru­sion into our con­sti­tu­tional pro­cesses, our very way of life.”

That Trump and his slimy crew refuse to see this not only serves to prove their vast un­suit­abil­ity to gov­ern, but also the like­li­hood that they were com­plicit from the start.
