 Trump playing part of Putin's lawyer, - The Washington Post

Hillary Clinton has all reasons to be alarmed by the U.S. intelligence report on Russia's attempts "to interfere with the U.S. election process” through the hacking of political organizations and individuals.

Censor.NET reports referring to an editorial in The Washington Post.

As the Post reports, Donald Trump has once again played the part of Vladi­mir Putin's lawyer.

"She doesn't know if it's the Russians doing the hacking," he said of Clinton. "Maybe there is no hacking."

The article states that Trump is receiving classified intelligence briefings, so he is certainly aware of the evidence that hackers backed by Moscow have stolen email and other records from the DNC and tried to penetrate state electoral systems.

The leaks traced to Russia through the WikiLeaks website have been aimed at Clinton, according to the editorial.

"In Sunday's debate, Mr. Trump reeled off a series of false statements about Russia's intervention in Syria," the publication notes.

"I think it would be great if we got along with Russia because we could fight ISIS together," Trump observed.

"Here's what we don't know: Does Mr. Trump propose this collaboration with a regime obsessed with thwarting and weakening American power out of ignorance and naivete, or because of personal and business interests he has not disclosed? Mr. Putin surely knows the answer to that question - but U.S. voters do not," the article concludes.
