Trump Regime Late to the Election Interference Party..again

Yesterday President Donald Trump signed what is being called a ‘sweeping executive order’ to protect U.S elections from foreign meddling and interference.

It is less than TWO months from the 2018 mid-term elections and NOW is when he’s gotten around to this? Really? Action to prevent foreign interference should have been a top priority for the Trump Regime the minute they took office in January 2017…not mid-September 2018.

The 2018 elections have been going on since at least mid-2017…primaries are essentially over…interference has been going on since the whole shebang got underway last year. And it’s been no secret in Washington or the media.

Sigh:

“This is intended to be a very broad effort to prevent foreign manipulation of the political process,” John Bolton, Trump’s national security adviser, told reporters during a briefing Wednesday.

The move comes less than two months before the 2018 midterm elections, and just weeks after Dan Coats, Trump’s director of national intelligence, warned of a “pervasive messaging campaign by Russia to try to weaken and divide the United States” before Americans go to the polls in November.

Trump Shrugs Over Russian Hacking Accusations

President-elect Donald Trump continues to pooh pooh the accusations against Russia for hacking the Democratic National Committee and prominent American politicians and elected officials:

“It’s time for our country to move on to bigger and better things,” Trump said in a statement. “Nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, I will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation.”

This isn’t a casual issue Mr. Trump. Just because it primarily targeted Democrats doesn’t make it any less serious. It is a security threat pure and simple and the government in both the executive and legislative branches need to take is seriously.

If this is the cavalier attitude about national security that Mr. Trump is taking into the White House, this nation is at serious risk in the future.
