It makes perfect sense, then, that when the left-leaning outlet The Nation brought the explosive findings of the Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity into the public spotlight with a lucid and thorough article, the DNC would want to push back on it. The findings both decimate the Russian hacking narrative and possibly implicate the DNC in colluding to frame Russia for what was almost certainly an insider leak, so some statement from the Committee was to be expected. I don’t think, though, that anybody expected its response to be quite so empty, vapid, butthurt and limp-dicked as the letter they ended up sending to The Nation’s editors:
419 votes in the House and 98 in the Senate. Think about what could be done with numbers like that if you had a government aimed at helping you instead of propping up the international hegemonic dynasties of a few extremely powerful plutocrats. If those numbers were pointed at getting rid of corruption in government instead of facilitating it. If they were geared toward prying the fingers of the military-industrial complex off the steering wheel of America instead of helping it plunge our species into peril. These Washington lawmakers could do so much to help their constituents, but instead they’re degrading relations between the two countries on earth who most desperately need to get along.
