Evidence is said to be mounting, that the Russian government sought to indirectly interfere in the 2016 Presidential election, by aiding the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton.
While the whining Left are using these reports by US intelligence agencies to delegitimize Donald Trump, a crucial home truth is first worth acknowledging.
Throughout the last election cycle, despite lies coming at varying stages from Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama and Donald Trump, there was one figure of clarity, whose release of accurate information could not be disputed.
That person is Julian Assange through his organisation of WikiLeaks, that relentlessly exposed Hillary Clinton’s deep- rooted corruption.
So when Julian Assange says that Russia had no involvement in WikiLeak’s hacking of sensitive information, it is generally worth listening.
I also encourage all to watch Assange’s recent interview with Hannity, in which Assange clinically dismantles the various claims made against WikiLeaks and Russia.
Regardless, for arguments sake, what if the allegations are indeed true, and that Russia interfered with American democracy to support the campaign of Donald Trump?
Then the implications would be very different, to what some aspects of the media are portraying them to be.
Since World War Two, the United States has been interferring in the democratic processes of many states. So to claim that election interference is a new concept just because it suits the Democrat’s current political purposes, is highly disingenuous.
Furthermore, where were the cries of outrage, when Barrack Obama infamously told Brits that their country would be put to the ‘back of the queue’, if they pursued self- determination and reclaimed their sovereignty?
Any hypothetical Russian involvements in hacking, would also reaffirm to us something we have know for a very long time: Obama’s Presidency has been laced with marked weakness. As if Putin did intend on hacking the US government, he would have done so without consequence.
Whether it be Obama’s ‘red line’ in Syria, to the disagreements over Ukraine, to Putin openly mocking US foreign policy, the conclusion remains the same: the American President maintains no legitimacy or respect when dealing with Russia.
That Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats is nothing more than a farce, as if the President really intended to act tough, he would have considered similar action months, if not years earlier.
Whilst evidence remains limited, should it be true the Russian government sought to influence the election for Donald Trump, this is a reflection on the ineptness of President Obama, as much as anything else.
