This hacking investigation is grating.

via Politico
Influential senators from both parties amplified calls for an independent investigation of Russian meddling in the U.S. election, setting up a clash with President-elect Donald Trump over U.S. policy toward Russia and potentially his pick for secretary of state.
Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) issued a joint statement Sunday with the incoming Democratic leader, Chuck Schumer of New York, and top Armed Services Committee Democrat Jack Reed of Rhode Island that Russian interference in the election "should alarm every American." They said Congress must investigate further without allowing it to become a partisan issue.

I've been watching this for days and you know what I find amazing.

No one is disputing that the information these hackers gave the American people via Wikileaks was false/disinformation.

It seems that our politicians aren't angry because the DNC got hacked, no they're angry because we got a peek behind the curtain to see how the political elite do business inside our govt.

What is this taking away from?

Everyone is ignoring the fact that the democrat party DID rig the election against Bernie Sanders so that Hillary would win.  They're ignoring the close relationship between the news media, celebrities etc with the democrat party.

The real crime was committed by the political elite against the American people.  These hackers...whether Russian, Chinese, or some bastard in his basement did us all a favor.  The calculations behind it are immaterial.  The people of this country processed information available and made a choice.

For better or worse Trump is the President.  Suck it up buttercup.  Get over it.  Move the fuck on and deal.  We've survived bad presidents and if Trump adds his name to the list then we'll survive him too.
