The New York Times has finally moved from Hillary Clinton’s e-mails to Russian election interference with an energy it should have deployed during the presidential campaign.
Two weeks before his inauguration, Donald J. Trump was shown highly classified intelligence indicating that President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia had personally ordered complex cyberattacks to sway the 2016 American election.
He has lied about it ever since. He’s chosen to believe Vladimir Putin. He’s offered to turn over a U.S. ambassador to Putin’s not-so-gentle handling. He has been covering up Russian influence in U.S. elections that continues to this day. The number of people using the word traitor and treason has grown exponentially and with good reason.
