Trump and the GOP are blatantly encouraging foreign dictators to hack the 2020 election

Thom plus logo It looks like Donald Trump and the leadership of the GOP are encouraging other countries to hack our upcoming 2020 election.

Donald Trump is sucking up to dictators, strongman oligarchs, and autocrats around the world, while Mitch McConnell is using political brute force to prevent individual states from hardening their election systems. Why?

Looking at the entire picture in context, consider Karl Marx's favorite question: "Who benefits?"

Who benefits when the leaders of countries with sophisticated internet hacking capabilities (North Korea, Saudi Arabia) and no democratic oversight are told by Trump that as long as he's in office he has their backs?

Might Trump and McConnell hope they'll intervene in our election to keep in power a political party that now disdains democracy and a free press, and embraces dictatorial behavior like calling for the imprisonment of Trump's political rivals, and of individuals in the intelligence agencies who have investigated him and the GOP?

Don't forget that the only collusion in the last election was between the party of death candidate and people in Russia. That's a fact. Trump is not "encouraging" any foreign govt. to hack our election process. Even Obama said that there was no evidence Russia hacking efforts changed even one vote in 2016.

Get real Thom. Its the former leaders of the party of death, the Clintons, who courted foreign money and were willing to do just about anything to get it.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
