    @moderate

    You stated "one hopes that congress impeaches the president".

    For what may I ask?

    I presume you are making the assumption that Trump was in cahoots with Russia on the hacked email server of the DNC?

    First of all there is no evidence of your assertion, and second all of you dems need to get over this hacking story. Russia is a hacker China is a hacker, N Korea is a hacker the U.S. is a hacker, do you wanna be a hacker too...

    Again regardless of the hack, the information that came out of it is the real problem. If the Hillary campaign had kept thier nose clean and weren't up to no good there would have been nothing to share to the public. The Russians did America a favor in my opinion and I agree Trump is not a great candidate and is a very flawed person but he didnt try the shinanigans and corruptions that the Hillary campaign did to cheat and lie and create chaos to his counterparts as Hillary did, if so then please share.

    I have no problem investigating any ties, but the tenor of the article was "oh, it's so horrible that russia was involved." Only if we are not involved in anything similar can we complain about them doing it.

    and even if we stop but they don't, we should not be so foolish as to not protect ourselves from it. What does all this say about how concerned dems are over security? only AFTER a negative outcome do they seem to care about it.

    only dem hubris keeps them from admitting their candidate and current misadministration were so flawed people would accept trump as an alternative.

    If the hatching spread false news about the candidates during an election this would be a threat.

    If the hacking exposed lies and spin told to us, by the candidates, what is the problem? This seems to be a good thing. A blessing actually.

    Not sure what the point of this article is. The Zimmerman thing just does not seem to be analogous at all to alleged Russian Hacking of the election.

    As for Trump's alleged Russian Government connection and conspiracy, his accusers need to produce some kind of credible impeachable evidence and I will join them in seeking Trump's ouster.

    But Trump's critics are beginning to look like mere shills for Democratic Party.

    Our modern equivalent wasn't a secret backroom proposal.
    It went on in public almost every day this past summer. Trump crowed how he 'loved wikileaks'. No one cared about how it happened, or who did it. We're starting to, but it's too late.
    The Mexicans didn't get Arizona. We, however, got trump.

    I don't understand why Trump supporters react angrily at the suggestion that we investigate possible unsavory connections to Russia. At best, Trump will be exonerated.
    At worst, these rumors will be confirmed. One hopes that Congress would impeach the President, and the Vice President would take over. You'd still have a Republican controlled Congress, still have a Republican President, still have a chance to make America great again.

    The Russians are not the problem. The problems are (1) the content of the emails (revealing the dishonesty of the Clinton campaign and its lack of substance), and (2) the fact that the campaign didn't adequately protect its emails. In fact, it has been reported that Clinton's campaign manager (whose emails were hacked and disclosed) used the word "password" as his password.

    yep, another hatchet job by the AP trying to attack our duly elected next president.

    What this article fails to mention, what every similar attack article about russia's hacking fails to mention, is we do the exact same thing, trying to influence public opinion in other nations, whether to influence elections, destabilize governments, or whatever.

    time to put on your big-boy pants and realize this is the sandbox in which we play.
