There is no doubt about that Russia was complicit in the hacking of both The DNC and our election. Sorry.

Using the term “no doubt” caused me to spit coffee on my keyboard. Please be serious.

ONE. WRT the DNC, we are talking about COMPUTER hacks. When a computer is hacked, competent hackers NEVER leave “proof” of who did it. You get convictions on a preponderance of evidence. And if the hacker is really smart, he/she leaves evidence that somebody ELSE did it. Ergo, there is always “doubt.”

TWO. Let’s suppose the Russians did hack the DNC. So what? That’s embarrassing for the DNC, but trying to prove any causality between that and something as broad as an election outcome when 125M voters are involved is a fool’s errand. It may be your OPINION that it affected the outcome, but there’s no way to confirm or refute an opinion based on such specious factors.

THREE. You use the term “hacked the election”. Are you using those words properly? What those words mean is that you believe that the Russians hacked into election machines and changed votes. Is that your allegation? Or are you just spouting without thinking?

FOUR. When the Fusion material is released, what specifically do you think it’s going to say? The only think that’s materially relevant to the nation is evidence that Mr. Trump committed a crime. What crime do you think is going to be there?

Please elucidate. With citations, please.
