A Cluster-something



If the special counsel Robert Mueller does his work, and I think he will, America will soon be facing a new sort of constitutional crisis: what to do about an invalid election (Mailbox, Feb. 8).

It's becoming clearer by the day that there was an extensive, sophisticated, illegal attack on our election. It was orchestrated by a foreign nation enlisting unwitting (or traitorous) Americans to swing the election to their liking.

They succeeded, and we now have a U.S. president who is, by dint of blackmail, subject to the bidding of an adversarial foreign nation.

Trump was not fairly and legally elected, he was installed by Russia, along with Pence, Gorsuch and the countless heads of bureaucracies who were chosen for no other reason than to destroy those systems and institutions from within.

It looks to me like modern cyber warfare with Russia winning this round hands down. Putin's "cluster-bomb" landed on Washington (a direct hit, I'd say) and now he is busy extracting dues from those he compromised, or just generally wreaking havoc.
