With the CIA report about Russia hacking both Democrats and Republican servers (but only releasing Hillary/Democrats email), Trump imploring Russia to hack Hillary’s emails, Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort’s ties to Russia and reporting of Trump computers communicating with Russian based computers –
How much additional evidence do we need to know that Trump encouraged Russian interference in the 2016 election, at a minimum people working for Trump had a financial stake in a favorable relationship with Russia and then Russian actors did interfere with the election.
During Gore v. Bush -as battles to stop the recounts by then Governor Jeb Bush, Secretary of State Katherine Harris and others -Democrats meekly accepted the results of a clearly tainted election -and as a result, massive tax cuts for the wealthy, two wars with no exit strategy, subsequent chaos in the Middle East (that we are still mired in today) and our economy on the brink of collapse.
Are we going to sit around and do the same thing 16 years later? The future of our children and grandchildren are at stake. We need a clear understanding from the President, the Department of Justice, the NSA and the CIA to assure us that we will have an elected President -not the installation of a Russian puppet.
The Electoral College should be legally precluded from voting until a full scale and thorough investigation is complete and that we have a path forward in these uncharted waters. Simply shrugging our shoulders and moving forward with Trumputin is spitting in the face of everyone that has suffered, bled and died for our aspirations of democracy.
