American Democracy At Risk

Washington Post reports on Russian involvement in U.S. election

Today's Washington Post  reports on the American media's witting or unwitting participation in Russian attempts to influence the U.S. election.  

Eric Chenoweth of the Institute for Democracy in Eastern Europe writes about the WikiLeaks release of "information" from the private e-mail accounts of persons associated with Hillary Clinton.  The first alarming thing is the statement that WikiLeaks has acknowledged trying to defeat Hillary Clinton.  The second item of major concern is the evidence that Russian actors have been behind the hacking of the e-mail accounts.  

This whole issue is deserving of much, much more attention than it has so far received.  The matter is profoundly urgent.
