Our political system is under attack by a foreign nation.
Revelations that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) server was hacked by Russians known to be working for state intelligence is only the tip of the iceberg. Like the break-in at the Watergate offices of the DNC on 17 June 1972, it appears to be part of a coordinated effort to influence the election.

I thought exactly the same thing! Today’s “plumbers” use keyboards and passwords, but they’re cut from the same mold as Liddy, Hunt, McCord, etc. As we learned from Watergate, these infiltration always take money, and the co-conspirators always run deeply into the shadows of power. The very top, usually. This is one story that can’t be lost in a 24-hour news cycle.
It will be interesting how the story runs when the Washington Post finally writes it!
