Washington was Nuked and Trump says Nothing Happened

I watched #MSNBC this morning as various experts and news people discussed Trump’s strengths and weaknesses in his relationship with Vladimir Putin.

KellyAnn Conway arrived to give her opinion of Putin’s attack on the United States:

And I thought, how can we know the damage without a complete investigation of the facts?

According to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, Russia worked “…to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency,”

The report also describes: “… a vast Russian intelligence operation that extends from hacking both Democratic and Republican targets to propaganda campaigns to troll-fueled social media disinformation. It re-asserts the intelligence community’s findings that the Kremlin is behind breaches of the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and even state election board websites. And the express intention of those operations, the report states, was to not only disrupt the American electoral process, but to elect Donald Trump.” Wired

That’s a serious crime against the American people.

Free and verified elections that produce a legitimately elected leader
is the heart of our Democracy.

Confidence in our vote is what makes us America.

It’s as if Washington was nuked and Trump says nothing happened.
