Russians are actively trying to interfere in pivotal elections for the European Parliament.

And why wouldn’t they? Look how good that interference has worked so far.

Courtesy of NYT:

Less than two weeks before pivotal elections for the European Parliament, a constellation of websites and social media accounts linked to Russia or far-right groups is spreading disinformation, encouraging discord and amplifying distrust in the centrist parties that have governed for decades.

European Union investigators, academics and advocacy groups say the new disinformation efforts share many of the same digital fingerprints or tactics used in previous Russian attacks, including the Kremlin’s interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

Fringe political commentary sites in Italy, for instance, bear the same electronic signatures as pro-Kremlin websites, while a pair of German political groups share servers used by the Russian hackers who attacked the Democratic National Committee.

The activity offers fresh evidence that despite indictments, expulsions and recriminations, Russia remains undeterred in its campaign to widen political divisions and weaken Western institutions. Despite online policing efforts by American technology companies, it remains far easier to spread false information than to stop it.

We should also keep in mind that there was Russian interference behind the Brexit vote and that here in America they also continue to pit Americans against each other by encouraging racism, political dissension, and even the anti-vaxxer movement.

And yet while we send warships to threaten Iran, and apply tariffs to punish China, the Trump Administration does absolutely nothing about the Russians.

Not…one…damn…thing.

    Why should he do anything? His base is in a trance thanks to a horribly ignorant literal misunderstanding of the Bible.

    Think that has nothing to do with it? Then you too are in a trance.

      Many are saying:

      “Christians give a hall pass to sex between adults and young children – sex they say “didn’t happen”.

      Sure looks like The Vatican is in on this whole Russia/Trump thing. Should Mueller have shut down Christianity itself until it ” uncults”? (good luck with that utopia). Therefore anyone that buys “Christmas” gifts is participating in the church’s sexual abuse.”

    the FBI did what it was supposed to, and what you’d hope it would do if a hostile foreign power was in the process of attacking a presidential election for the purpose of helping one of the candidates, and if there were ever-increasing worries that that candidate himself, now the president, might be under the influence of that foreign power. If anything, we wish they hadn’t still been addicted to Hillary’s fucking emails, so they could have focused harder on the issue at hand. And yes, that includes taking into account the work of a veteran British spy who is a Russia expert, who’s flailing his arms around saying
    AMERICA, WOULD YOU FUCKING LISTEN TO ME? I AM TRYING TO HELP YOU RIGHT NOW!
