The left, not Trump, in bed with Rus­sia

The Washington Times Daily - - EDITORIAL - JON KETZNER Cum­ber­land, Md.

The Demo­cratic Na­tional Com­mit­tee com­puter sys­tem was eas­ily hacked by the Rus­sians. The per­sonal email of the chair­man of the Clin­ton pres­i­den­tial cam­paign was even more eas­ily stolen by the Rus­sians. The Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion ap­par­ently knew as early as last sum­mer that the Rus­sians were up to great mischief in try­ing to in­ter­fere in our pres­i­den­tial elec­tion — but it was par­a­lyzed into in­ac­tion.

This is such an ob­vi­ous tale of malfea­sance, in­com­pe­tence and dere­lic­tion of duty by the Democrats that they should never be trusted with the keys to the na­tional sta­tion wagon again. Only in the through-the-look­ing-glass won­der­land of Wash­ing­ton pol­i­tics would Don­ald Trump be the one fac­ing an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into Rus­sian in­ter­fer­ence.

Pres­i­dent Trump did not col­lude with the Rus­sians; he did not need to and they had no im­pact on the elec­tion out­come. Yet the Clin­ton cam­paign and the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion col­luded very in­ti­mately with stu­pid­ity, hubris and a par­ti­san dis­re­gard for our se­cu­rity that was al­most gen­uinely trea­sonous.

Let’s see if Robert Mueller has the back­bone to take these in­ves­ti­ga­tions where they re­ally need to go.
