Yet Another Useful Idiot for Russia's Man in D.C.

Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday sought to justify Russia's interference in America's 2016 presidential race, claiming that all countries meddle in foreign elections.

“I think really we mistake our response if we think it's about accountability from the Russians. They’re another country, they're going to spy on us," Paul said on CNN's "State of the Union," a day before President Donald Trump's scheduled summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
Right. And if the Russians had been meddling on behalf of Clinton, instead of doing Trump's bidding, Paul would be screaming about it to the rafters.

Anyone who willfully closes his eyes to treason because the actions of the traitor suits him politically is not a patriot. He would be a traitor, one step removed.

I have to love how Paul and Trump are not blaming Obama. For we all know that if Obama had come out strongly about TRussian meddling two years ago, Paul, Trump and the rest of the Republicans would have been screaming that Obama was trying to tilt the election.

Obama knew he would be so accused, and tried to get buy-in from both parties, but Mitch McConnell threatened to make a big political deal of Obama trying to tilt the election in the Democrats' favor, so not much else happened.
He did try, though. Can you imagine Fergus calling Putin and telling him to knock it off?
This is a new-ish aspect to geo-politics, and it's kinda important that we figure out how to effectively deal with it.
The Republicans will try to keep us from doing so as long as they benefit politically from it staying the way it is.
I feel like that is a shortsighted tactic that is very likely to come back and bite them really hard on their asses.
And meanwhile we surrender some of the sovereignty of our elections to the goddamn Russians, who are not, in fact, our friends.

Trump is blaming Obama on twitter.
"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration. Why didn’t they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the FBI in September, before the Election?"
