Weak party makes weak claims

To the Editor:

President Trump's proven tweets were once again vindicated today (May 5). The most frivolous contention from the short-sighted liberals is the odd claim of Russian hacking of the election. Honestly it would be far better sensationalism if the fake news would just come all-the-way out and say it was Edward Snowden who hacked the election. This fake scenario at least still has the Russian connection from where Snowden was justifiably exiled for treason. The hacking theory never got off the ground because hacking, when real, leaves an instant trail. So who was tried? Who was convicted? Who? And silence. There's such a mass range here between instant-arrest and 10 months no conviction. Clearly not even close. Actually what could be is maybe the hacking was intended to stoke a Trump loss but the shallow instigator errantly didn't quite give the miss-guided democrats enough votes and was taken by complete surprise of the all-red map. At least this scenario explains why the theorists don't want to dig too deep or it will surface that Trump's proven mandate was even larger than already known. But again smarter theories make too much sense. Funny stuff. Keep America great Folks!

Why does it take so long for the Times to publish comments? By contrast, the Vilas County News Review often publishes comments within hours of posting.

Timeliness is important in this forum. The Lakeland Times should strive to do a better job here.

Odd? My understanding, and that of most fair minded people, is that virtually the entire intelligence community concluded that hacking did in fact occur, that it was Russian instigated, and that the aim was to undermine the Clinton campaign to favor Donald Trump.

Given the fact of Russian hackers, it should come as no surprise that the individual Russians (or other foreign nationals) involved are beyond the reach of American law. Hence, no arrests, no convictions.

And your pathetic little conspiracy story about the hacking intended to "stoke a Trump loss" is just as ludicrous as most of DJT's tweets. That's the real fake news.
