Has there ever been a covert action that backfired as disastrously as Russia's attempt to meddle in the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign?Granted, we know all the reasons Moscow is gloating: Donald Trump is president; America is divided and confused; Russia's propagandization of "fake news" is now repeated by people around the world as evidence that nothing is believable and all information is (as in Russia) manipulated and mendacious.Mueller has mobilized the investigative powers of the U.S. government to document how Russia and its friends sought to manipulate American politics.Already, Mueller has stripped the cover from Russia's machinations: Trump former foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos has confessed that he lied to FBI agents about his contacts with individuals connected to Moscow who promised "dirt" on Hillary Clinton; Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has been charged with laundering $18 million in payoffs from Russia's Ukrainian friends.If Trump seeks to derail Mueller's probe, he is implicitly colluding with Russia now.Let Mueller finish his job of exposing Russian manipulation.
