Donald Trump's antics are troubling, but so is the Democratic Party leadership’s failure to take in the significance of the 2016 election campaign.
The questions raised by the latest memo from a group of intelligence veterans are well-founded and demand a full investigation.
In a memo to President Trump, former U.S. intelligence officers cite forensic studies that indicate data was leaked (not hacked) by a DNC insider, then doctored to incriminate Russia.
The journalist says all "17 intelligence agencies" of the U.S. government agreed on Russian guilt in alleged 2016 election hacking. Former intelligence officials claim that statement is incorrect, but it keeps getting repeated.
The document allegedly leaked by whistleblower Reality Winner reinforces assertions made by President Trump that the Russia story is fake news.
So far, the scandal has been smoke and mirrors, with no chargeable offenses and not a scintilla of convincing proof of Russian meddling in the election.
The founder of WikiLeaks discusses his organization's role in the 2016 election, America's current political climate and more in a Democracy Now! interview.
The answer to that question is "no," Andrew Cockburn writes after examining “what few facts are known about the hack” -- an examination that was closer than that of The Washington Post.
