An important point that is getting lost amid the Russian Hacking scandal . . .

We can certainly all agree that any attempt by a foreign government to exert influence on American elections is unacceptable, and must be thoroughly (and independently) investigated. But there remains an important point that appears to be in serious danger of being obscured. That is, that had the leaked DNC emails not revealed what they did, in fact, reveal -- i.e., a very corrupt DNC that was improperly putting a thumb on the scales on behalf of a particular candidate during the primaries -- then the leaked emails would have had little impact. By all means, let's investigate Russia's involvement. But if the Democratic Party chooses to focus only on Russia's involvement while glossing over the corruption and duplicity of the DNC, we will have failed to learn the lessons of 2016.
