Liberal Editor Has No Evidence Of Russian Hacking Except "Obama Told Us, So It Must Be True". No Thinking Political Dunce!
Watch Tucker Carlson turn editorialist into stuttering, stammering mess over ‘Russian hacking’
The Philadelphia Inquirer published an editorial on Monday praising President Obama’s sanctions on Russia and his expelling of 35 Russian operatives over the alleged “hacking” of the election by Russia.
That no evidence has been produced showing Russian interference is irrelevant to the paper’s editorial board. Obama said it is so, “17 intelligent agencies, civilian and military” said it was so; therefore it is so, according the editorial.
It then excoriates Donald Trump for not taking the hacks seriously enough, asking, “Whose side is Trump on?”
But it is unclear what is more alarming: That Russia used a cyberespionage and information-warfare campaign devised to influence the 2016 presidential election, or Donald Trump’s feeble response.
Trump does not seem to understand or care that the United States was attacked. The attacks on U.S. computer systems were orchestrated from the highest levels in Russia, a country that for decades has been America’s leading geopolitical foe.
Trump claimed the United States has “no idea” who is behind the hacking of private emails tied to the Democratic National Committee. But by Saturday night, Trump claimed he knew “things that other people don’t know” about the hacking and that the information would be revealed on Tuesday or Wednesday.
This should be interesting. Apparently Trump knows more than the 17 intelligence agencies, civilian and military, that concluded the espionage attacks came from the highest levels of the Kremlin and were designed to influence the presidential election. The intelligence agencies found Russia’s powerful military intelligence unit known as the G.R.U. ordered the attacks. By dismissing those findings, Trump is calling into question U.S. intelligence.
Calling into question U.S. intelligence? Oh the horrors!
Fox News’ Tucker Carlson called one of the Inquirer’s editorial board editors onto his show to explain the paper’s stance. Paul Davies was left a stammering, stuttering mess trying to explain it.
