The long awaited evidence regarding Russia’s hacking of the US presidential election has finally arrived in the form of a detailed declassified US Intelligence report. The report covers the range of tools Russia used to both influence and hack the US election in favor of Donald Trump, and the overwhelming evidence that the Russian establishment feared a Hillary presidency, due to her strong stance on Russian aggression. The report covers how Putin personally “ordered” a campaign to influence the elections, and how Russian propaganda outlet RT had a suspiciously cosy relationship with Julian Assange and Wikileaks.
This news is so important that Twitter decided to notify all of its users with an update on this damning report, regardless of their subscription settings, in order to keep the public informed. People all over the world are shocked and angry at the fact that Putin had the gall to override the will of the American people in order to install a radical candidate who happens to be more sympathetic to Russia. Millions of people all over the world are now demanding that Trump be removed from office, and Hillary be elected the true leader of the free world. There is now overwhelming public support for outright war with Russia, after watching years of coverage of their aggressive expansionism and crimes against humanity in Crimea and Syria. For many, this confirmation of Russia’s campaign to influence the US elections and elect possibly the most unpopular presidential candidate in US history, is the final straw.
A series of investigations are now underway into whether Trump’s presidential win is valid, and many influential political figures are calling this an overt act of war that warrants a strong military response. It remains to be seen how the honest factions of our government will react to this shocking revelation, but it is up to every informed American to hold them to account and make sure that these wrongs are righted. The future of our democracy depends on our willingness to react to this blatant act of subversion by Russia, and whether we have the courage to do the right thing. For the sake of our children, I urge our officials to act now, before it’s too late.
