Rah, Rah, Trump-Putin

Caught red-handed by the leak of emails exposing the rigging of their party's electoral nomination process in favor of Hillary Clinton, the US Democratic Party leaders are now baring their Atlanticist fangs by claiming that it was Russia which hacked these emails and leaked them to WikiLeaks in order to benefit Trump's election campaign. The Democrats are now suddenly accusing Trump of having business ties to Russian oligarchs, while further alleging that Trump is a stooge for Vladimir Putin.

Apparently, the Left still wish to prove that patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels, by screaming "The Russians are coming! The Russians are coming!" to distract attention away from their own corruption which has undermined the US electoral system. Unlike India, the USA does not have a constitutionally independent Election Commission, and has to rely on investigation by the FBI, which like India's CBI is a "caged bird".

Trump is cheekily, irreverently responding by calling for Russia to hand over the missing emails from Hillary's private email server which she ran illegally from her basement:

The spectacle of all of this is easily upstaging the Democratic National Convention, and dominating the headlines - which probably plays into Trump's hands.

Oh, those Russians...
