I received an e-mail from the Donna Brazile, the interim Chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee:
re: Russian interference in our elections
From Donna Brazile firstname.lastname@example.org
Call on Congress to begin an independent, bipartisan investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election:
By now, Americans know beyond any reasonable doubt that the Russian government orchestrated a series of cyberattacks on political campaigns and organizations over the past two years and used stolen information to influence the presidential campaign and congressional races.
We know that these intrusions were more than just “hacks” — they were attacks on the United States by a foreign power.
Unfortunately, there is still too much that we don’t know about the motives, methods, and specific objectives of the Russian government. Without that understanding, our country will be left vulnerable to similar attacks in future elections.
That’s why, yesterday, I sent a letter to Paul Ryan calling on Congress to begin an independent, bipartisan investigation into Russia’s unprecedented interference in the 2016 election. The integrity of our elections is too important for Congress to refuse to take these attacks seriously.
If you agree that the American people deserve answers, then add your name to mine and demand a full investigation from Congress:

We have already noted how the lovely Miss Brazile was fired from her position with CNN “after hacked emails from WikiLeaks showed that she shared questions for CNN-sponsored candidate events in advance with friends on Hillary Clinton’s campaign.”
Put plainly, Miss Brazile somehow discovered one of the questions which Hillary Clinton would be asked in a primary debate with Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — Miss Brazile was not supposed to be part of the team preparing the questions — and then gave it to the Clinton campaign, to help Mrs Clinton cheat in the debate. She cheated, so she wants to deflect attention away from that by claiming the Russians cheated, and Donald Trump cheated!
If there was any sense of irony among the Democrats, they’d have had someone other than Miss Brazile sending that e-mail.
