#1 Bath House Barry was already thinking about all the quality free time he was about to have and he took his eye off the, uh, ball...

#2 More like worrying about the Russians shifting focus to Barry and his people instead?

#3 Yes, to both.

#4 Still, what I'm seeing is that the Russian 'hack' amounted to letting us see Hillary's dirty laundry.

#5 ...Somewhere, William of Ockham smiles. This makes sense, and doesn't require some fiendishly clever conspiracy.

#6 Hillary's dirty laundry (and Bills) has been hanging on the line for some time. No one has done much about it. It seems there are two systems of justice; the one for the elites and the one for the rest of us.

#7 It seems there are two systems of justice; the one for the elites and the one for the rest of us.

One set of laws for the Nobility.
Another set of laws for the Common Man.

I am beginning to think the French Revolution had the right idea in dealing with the nobility.

#8 Russia didn't try to influence the election, they tried to degrade its legitimacy, regardless of the winner.

#9 As the rush of stories slowly on revels in the truth behind it points more to Obama and his creatures more and more will emerge to show how corrupted the government tools of power have become. I await with great interest the slow emergence of ValJar and her tendrils. I can only hope there is still enough courage to show we still are a nation of laws, not slogans for the peasants....

#11 It's not at all certain to me that Obama and others in the know believed Hillary had the election in the bag. I'm more inclined to believe they knew how fake the polls were, how slanted the news was and how many Americans were rejecting them. Biden once admitted thinking Trump could win after watching a Trump rally where the attendance and enthusiasm were far greater than at any of Hillary's rallies. That's why it's hard for me to believe WAPO's assertion about Putin ordering the hacking to help Trump and Obama's knowledge of the so-called plot.

#12 My theory: Obama, Lord Narcissist the First, just did not care. The despised White Business Man (Hiss! capitalist! Hiss!) versus the despised White corrupt female politico that he was forced to offer a cabinet post. Like a Pharaoh he was busy planning his Library and NGO to preserve his Undying Legacy¬©.

#13 Obama did not release Russian hacking info...

Professional courtesy btwn like-minded comrades. Besides, he told Romney in the debates that Russia was not the problem. The Syria, Iran, Russian troika could not be disrupted. There were dividends to be harvested down the road.

#14 Seriously the only thing we have is the dossier.

Other than that what hacking info do they have? Except some DHS IP address hacks of the Georgia election machines.

The only real hack was the dems trying to tweak results
