There's no doubt about it. Even Donald Trump now admits it. The Russian government, under direct orders from Vladimir Putin, interfered in the 2016 presidential election in order to help Donald Trump win -- and succeeded in their goal.
Read that paragraph again. This is nothing short of an act of war. And the only thing more shocking than the fact that Russia did, indeed, hack our election is the reaction of President-elect Donald Trump, whose response to the most serious case of cyberwarfare in our history is a blase "So what?"
For weeks, Trump simply denied Russia's role in the hacking of the DNC and Clinton campaign. We don't know it was Russia, he insisted. It could have been China. Or just "some guy in New Jersey." But whoever did it, said Trump, it was nothing but a "political witch hunt," hatched by Democrats in order to undermine the legitimacy of his victory on Nov. 8.
