Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, June 18, 2017

A rival foreign power launched an aggressive cyberattack on the United States, interfering with the 2016 presidential election and leaving every indication that it's coming back for more -- but President Trump doesn't seem to care.

In other words, to the extent that Mr. Trump countenances the idea of a Russian attack, he seems to regard it as all about him. The "obsession" with it, he claims, is driven by Democrats upset over losing an election they expected to win.

This is demonstrably false. It also ignores the true threat. As Mr. Comey said of the attack: "It's not a Republican thing or Democratic thing. It really is an American thing. They're going to come for whatever party they choose to try and work on behalf of. And they're not devoted to either, in my experience. They're just about their own advantage. And they will be back."

Even if the investigations find no evidence that Mr. Trump's campaign colluded with the Russians, the president's refusal to accept the truth about this attack on our democracy denies reality and leaves the country vulnerable to more damaging attacks. The true obsession is Mr. Trump's, with his own brand, and it's distracting him from his most important duty -- to protect the nation.

Donald Trump has a dangerous indifference to the United States.

Prove his Russian money laundering, impeach him, convict him for financial crimes, and send him to prison.

If Trump was smart, he would order preparations for a land invasion.
