A big deal is being made in Congress and the media about the CIA’s finding that Russia interfered somehow in our presidential election. Apparently, this “interference” came in the form of leaked emails that portrayed Hillary Clinton and her staff in a bad light. They did this after hacking into the servers belonging to the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign. There doesn’t seem to be any evidence that the Russians hacked into any voting machines or otherwise attempted to manipulate the vote count. Therefore, it really doesn’t bother me that they interfered. In fact, I couldn’t care less. Clinton and her Democratic cronies should have used better security methods to prevent the hacking.
Of course, some people might accuse me of hypocrisy and claim that I would feel differently if Donald Trump and the Republicans would have the victims instead. I’m sure that this would apply to fanatical Republicans such as Sean Hannity, but not me. I still wouldn’t care. I would say that if Trump had lost because of hacked emails, he would have deserved to lose. But this whole issue of hacked emails is nothing more than a red herring. The bottom line is that Clinton lost because her message was rejected by the voters in states such as Florida, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
