Hillary Clinton’s campaign has accused Russia of meddling in the 2016 presidential election, saying its hackers stole Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails and released them through wikileaks in order to ferment disunity in the party and aid Donald Trump.
These leaked emails, if they are true, and that's a big if, allegedly show that the Democratic party was heavily biased towards Bernie Sanders and did everything it could to discredit him and make Hillary the Democratic candidate, basically confirming everything Bernie Sanders was saying about the nomination process being a “rigged system”.
These acusation are also funny because they mirror how Russia like to deal with internal problems or whenever its crimes and corruption are exposed to the world. Every time that something goes wrong in Russia, they blame America, and now every time the Democratic party is caught cheating lying and backstabbing one of their own candidates, they blame Russia.
Now I'm willing to accept that perhaps Russia was behind the leaked emails.
The Democratic party servers were hacked by a group of Russian hackers who are known to have links with the Russian GRU and FSB, and those emails were leaked through wikileaks, a website that is owned by former a Kremlin employer by the name of Julian Assange and is heavily pro Russian biased and anti western.
But so what?
Was it Putin that tried to sabotaged the democratic process in the democratic party? Was Putin which was trying to discredit one of the leading candidates? Was it Putin that rigged the democratic system in a way that would make sure that Hillary would win it? No, that was the fault of Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic party.
Finally, the Hillary Clinton’s campaign is accusing Russia of intervening in the US election race, and claiming that no foreign power should meddle with American politics.
Excuse me, but wasn't what president Obama was doing, just a couple of months ago, when he was actively meddling in the UK's domestic political situation by strongly campaigning for the UK to remain in the EU and not leave it?
The double standards that the democratic party, and Hillary in particular, are exhibiting these days, to put it in Trump's jargon, are YUGE.
