Noting that cyber warfare was not an issue until after Hillary Clinton lost, Charles Krauthammer argues that Democrats appear to be united in their efforts to sabotage Donald Trump’s presidency:
I don’t want to impute a general conspiracy here, but it looks as if the Democrats, on their way out the door, are trying to leave behind as many landmines as they can to at least cast doubts on the legitimacy of the Trump victory. All of a sudden, as we have seen, they’ve gotten interested in Russian cyber warfare, which the administration appeared to be extremely nonchalant about until they lost the November election. And now we are going to have new investigations, meaning days and days of headlines about the other thing that Democrats attribute their loss to, meaning Comey’s action with eleven days to go in which he reopened, as he said, the investigation. Many Democrats think that’s why they lost. Now, that would have faded into history. This is a way to say it’s not going to, and it will remain there. I’m not sure this is the best way to ensure a good transition, one where you transfer not just the authority of office but the legitimacy. But that seems to be what the Democrats want to do as they get out of power.
