The Russians Are the Least of Our Problems

That is true in several respects. Many on the left are obsessed with Russian meddling in the 2016 election. I am a great deal more concerned with meddling in the election by the FBI and the CIA, which deserves to go down as the greatest scandal in American political history. Many are also expressing concern that the Russians may try to interfere in the 2018 election. I am sure they will; given the success they had in 2016, why wouldn’t they? But if the worst they do is buy a few Facebook ads, no doubt the republic will survive.
What is least possible to take seriously is talk about how the Russians have sown distrust and division in American society. The last thing the Democrats need in that regard is help from the Russians, as Michael Ramirez ably points out.
