COMMENT ADDED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE GUARDIAN

 

‘Entire US political system ‘under attack’ by Russian hacking, experts warn”

There has not been a jot of proof for these claims about Russia

I suspect the “experts” cited here are employed by the Clinton campaign.

In a poor effort to cover the embarrassing revelations of WikiLeaks, Guccifer 2.0, and others, Hillary Clinton hasn’t stopped making charges against Russia, sounding increasingly like a paranoid, old Cold Warrior.

President Putin had the most astute observation on this campaign, that all the noise ignored the content.

Whether most readers are aware, interfering in elections is not new.

The CIA has practiced it for decades, including secret transfers of money to candidates favored and secret pensions paid to promising (from the CIA’s point of view) rising politicians.

These practices have been used in many places, and Europe’s elections have been no exception.
