Democrats warn that Trump is turning a blind eye to escalating Russian interference in Europe

There are 179 comments on the Silicon Alley Insider story from Jan 10, 2018, titled Democrats warn that Trump is turning a blind eye to escalating Russian interference in Europe. In it, Silicon Alley Insider reports that:

A new report by Senate Democrats warns of deepening Russian interference throughout Europe and concludes that even as some Western democracies have responded with aggressive countermeasures, President Donald Trump has offered no strategic plan to bolster their efforts or safeguard the U.S. from again falling victim to the Kremlin's systematic meddling. The report commissioned by the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee is the first from Congress to comprehensively detail Russian efforts to undermine democracies since the 2016 presidential election.

We fought a Great War, lost millions of fine Americans. We've done enough for Europe. If they will not defend themselves, let Putin have them.
We will defend America, and Putin knows we would destroy every inch of his country if he goes after us. God knows we have some communists in country, but they can be picked up, and dealt with. We know who they are already.

A weak POTUS like Trump that is controlled by the Kremlin makes America a bit of a joke now, so it is no surprise that Trump's boss Putin is going to grab what he can while America is weak.

Europe IS defending themselves. Reading comprehension problem? Which part of "even as some Western democracies have responded with aggressive countermeasures" did you not understand? More likely, you read the headline only and jumped to a conclusion. That's probably the only exercise you'll get all day.

The point of this topic is that, while other Western democracies are taking steps to safeguard themselves from the type of interference we experiened from the Russians, the U.S. under Trump is doing NOTHING to keep it from happening again. It's all due to Trump's enormous, fragile ego -- he cannot admit, even to himself, that he had help winning the election, therefore Russian interference is "fake news" and there's no need to do anything.

Attention Trumpster morons:
As a candidate, the Trumpster was desperate to "drain the swamp" and reject "politics as usual." As president, he wants Congress to bring back earmarks. Why have Republicans elevated a man who stands for everything they claim to hate, who has lived a life of decadence and frivolity they claim to despise?

Why do Democrats think it's America's responsibility to protect other nations from "interference?"
What's the difference between "protection" and "interference" anyway?
Should we use Ukraine as a model, where our "protection" resulted in a coup and loss of Crimea?

What war? We're talking about computer hacking and disinformation spreading. Russian interference in our election is a proven fact, yet Trump is so deep in denial that no one in his administration is doing anything to prevent them from interfering again.

Our intellinge services and law enforcement agencies should be in a hiring frenzy, acquiring howevermuch talent WE need in order to safeguard our cyber systems, yet nothing is being done. Are you okay with that?

Great. Another righty with no reading comprehension skills. Please see comment #4.

Weak liberal states that are losing people at increasingly large rates due to lack of jobs, high taxes, cost of living and liberal government control tells you all you need to know cupcake.

When Putin has them, that makes our job of staying a sovereign nation that much more difficult.

And Putin will not be the only one. China may decide that they have had enough of waiting for the United States to pay the debt.

Trumpís tax plan doesnít cover it. Which should be no surprise since he is very familiar with bankruptcy.

Problem is, being in debt to China puts the United States in a very vulnerable situation that cannot be cleaned up by Trumpís personal lawyers.

You voted for someone who has put the United States in the crosshairs of two strong countries.
