100 Words -- Moscow's Man?

I wish President Obama had handled the CIA report about Russian interference in our election more discretely. By making it public he made it political, causing Trump to lash out at the CIA and dig in his heels on acknowledging what everyone knows: Russia’s cyber-prints were all over the campaign. Were they trying to get Trump elected? Well, it’s been argued that Russia was more likely trying to discredit a Clinton presidency, the expected outcome right up until Election Day. Now it’s boomeranged on Trump, raising questions about his legitimacy, which probably suits Moscow’s purposes equally well. What a mess!
