    We have to listen to Jackie Speir spouting that “The Russians Are Coming”! Please stop the fake news and propaganda. The Dems lost that election all on their own. The *most* that the Russians did was hack emails. That is most likely not true, but even assuming it’s true — so what? It’s the 21st century. The DNC should expect to be subject to email hacks. Just more evidence that the Dems are not living in the present.
