irwin's points on US malfeasance are well taken. His question on why many here are upset misses the point, at least for me.
Sure I'm cranky with Putin and his cronies for interfering in our political process. I'm upset that, when the extent of the Russian attempts became known, there was a lackluster (at best) response from the Obama administration. More concerning for me, however, is that the trump campaign encouraged it, welcomed it and benefitted from it. trump's insistence on minimizing the current and future attempts by our rivals to again insert themselves into our political process, in defiance of every US intelligence agency simply beggars belief.
Well obviously the reason Trump was dismissive about Russian influence was either 1) They have something on him and-or 2) Russian interference helped him sway the election.
