The reason we have a stupendous mess is because a few million voters shy of the majority voted for Donald Trump. The DNC didn't make him the Republican party's candidate. The DNC establishment put their fat fingers on the scale and nominated Clinton rather than Sanders. How Sanders would have fared against Trump and his Russian handlers we'll never know.
Maybe if you read part of the indictment you might understand that Russian agents 'doing their job' don't get a pass on violating U.S. laws and interfere with our democratic elections. DNC actions in the primary were serious and should never be allowed to happen again, but comparing what they did in the primaries to what the Russians and their collaborators in the Trump campaign did is ludicrous. One purpose of the indictments was to prove beyond any shadow of doubt that Russia acted to swing the election and elect Trump.
"Special counsel Robert Mueller just indicted 12 Russian intelligence officers, accusing them of interfering in the 2016 US presidential election.In total, the indictment charges 11 spies with conspiracy to commit computer crimes, eight counts of aggravated identity theft, and conspiracy to launder money. Two of the defendants are charged with a separate conspiracy to commit computer crimes."
From text of the indictment:
2. Defendants VIKTOR BORISOVICH [etc.] and
ALEKSEY ALEKSANDROVICH POTENIKIN were GRU officers who knowingly and
intentionally conspired with each other, and with persons known and unknown to the Grand Jury
(collectively the ?Conspirators?), to gain unauthorized access (to ?hack?) into the computers of
U.S. persons and entities involved in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, steal documents from
these computers, and stage releases of the stolen documents to interfere with the 2016 U.S.
You do not need to convince me that the Russians conspired to influence the US elections. That is what spies do. I have no doubt that our intelligence agencies are gnashing their teeth over not beating them to the punch.
If Trump or his campaign colluded with the foreign operatives, they should be charged with treason. Doubt this will happen.
This does not change the fact the corruption and cronyism at the DNC gave us the most flawed and worst presidential candidate in history. How bad? So bad she lost the election to Donald Trump, the second worst presidential candidate in history. I was in the firm belief that he was actually the worst, but HRC proved me wrong.
Pre election polling prior to HRC being officially anointed showed her losing the election to Trump. It also showed Sanders beating Trump. My belief is that Sanders would have won.
I felt great distress when it became obvious that HRC would be the candidate. Because I knew she could lose. There is no way the Democrats should have lost that election. The media at the time was painting the picture of the disastrous Republican Party crumbling but in the end it was quite the opposite.
