(After writing this posting, I searched for URLs to cite as evidence for what is asserted in it. It immediately became evident that others had come to the same realizations: see the articles by Abby Phillip and by Amber Phillips in the Washington Post. But since different aspects are emphasized in what follows, it seemed non-redundant to go ahead and post it.)


Putin is the Tyrant of Putinia (which has replaced Russia).

Putin ordered his minions to hack into the computer files of the Democratic National Committee to steal the emails and plans of Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Putin wanted to use that information to boost Trump’s chances in the US Presidential election in November.

Putin wants Trump to win.

Trump and Putin like each other’s philosophy and style. Both are authoritorian and greedy. Each hides his insecurity by projecting brazen self-confidence. Neither of them gives a hoot about the constraints imposed by laws, or even Constitutions.

Trump also drools over the potential for business opportunities in Putinia.  So he is careful to always ‘make nice’ to Putin, and never challenges what Putin does.
Some leader of the free world Trump would be! He has a built-in conflict of interest.

Putin cannot legally afford to admit that he is responsible for the hacking.

Also, if it were known that the release of the information was intended to aid Trump, then the impact of the released information would be diminished.

So Putin had the stolen information forwarded to Wikileaks. Having Wikileaks release the information gave Putin deniability.

Wikileaks – having no sense of privacy and decency, and deserving none – eagerly made the stolen information public.

Releasing the stolen information can have had only one possible purpose: to embarrass and hamper Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

Trump is guilty of many things, but he had no knowledge of this.

  1. Even if Putin was behind the hack, one could argue it’s a preferable and less violent means of political influence compared to military coups and bombings which Clinton has backed in Honduras and Libya. Nevertheless, it’s a brilliant move for the Clinton team/DNC to divert attention away from their election fraud by accusing a third party of meddling by exposing the fraud. The first rule of damage control is to attack the messenger and ignore the message.
    But assuming the Russian government did have hacked information on Hillary Clinton, wouldn’t they therefore want Clinton to achieve presidency so they could manipulate policy decisions through blackmail?

  2. On your first point, the DNC’s bias between Clinton and Sanders can also be seen as a fair and rational assessment of what would happen to the Democratic candidate if Sanders became the nominee. The Democrats would have been clobbered, because almost no one – not even most people who are not fooled by Trump – would have voted for a reflexive pacifist in a world threatened by ISIS, and by Putin’s grabs of territory, and by Xi’s sneaky expansionism. That is especially so, because Sanders entire focus was on such a narrow subset of the issues that would face a President. So the DNC’s DUTY to the Democratic Party was to try to prevent the nomination from going to Sanders.

    On your second point, Trump and Putin get along well, and Trump has essentially said that we should not interfere with Putin’s two seizures of parts of Ukraine, and we should not object to his threats to Poland and to the Baltics, nor to his military aid to the monster Bashar Assad in Syria. Clinton opposes Putin on each of those thrusts. Trump doesn’t care about human rights and freedom, so he sees nothing wrong with Putin’s muzzling of all of the media in Putinia, and his imprisionment and sometimes murder of those who disagree with his policies and with his larceny, and that of his gang members. Clinton opposes Putin on every one of those items. Putin knows that Trump would continue to be docile to him, because Trump’s eyes would be on potential post-Presidency business opportunities in Putinia. Putin also knows that Clinton would actively oppose him, more vigorously than Obama has. Finally, since Putin has already Wikileaked the stolen emails, he would have nothing left that he could use in attempting to blackmail Clinton. In any case, Clinton would not be blackmailable, despite having a grab-bag of weaknesses, as we all do.

    Of the two potential Presidents, Putin would be able to act as puppet master to Trump, but would not be able to do so to Clinton.
