Missing The Point

12/30/2017

Point #1:

Fox News argues 24/7 that Secretary Clinton leaked national secrets and abused email protocols.  If so, the Secretary should be punished.
Point #2:

Non-Fox News argues 24/7 that President Trump colluded with Russia to influence our voting.  If so, the President should be punished.
Point #3:
All U.S. intelligence agencies concluded that Russia interfered with our election process.  If so, that country should be punished.
Discussion:

Why is it so difficult to focus on point #3 alone?  Punishment for the Secretary or the President would be national disgrace or even imprisonment.  What should the punishment be for Russia . . . or Putin?
The perpetrator of this crime – hacking our democracy – is known.  Merely improving our defenses against such hacking is not punishment for Putin.  It is merely another punishment for our taxpayers.
Forget Clinton.  Forget Trump.  A “pound of flesh” is due from Putin!
