Say YOU were Vladimir Putin, and you had masterminded an amazing plot to put your boy into the Oval

Office of your no 1 enemy, and you had his party (while controlling all parts of the legislature) too afraid to take you on, but it re-energised the opposition. What would you do next, bearing in mind that if the Democrats get even one branch of the executive back in November, everything will be exposed, you won't be in control, AND there is the expectation that by Jan 2021 at the latest, draconian revenge will be taken on you personally and those who helped you ?

(and let me re-state, there is little doubt Putin and his henchmen will/must suffer a terrible price for what they did).

My own view fwiw, is that he has made this calculation and is going to quadruple down on the mid terms, in the hope that the GOP will hold the House and the Senate. I don't see he has a choice.

3. nothing putin or russia can do if an extra 20 million democratic voters, vote

 

thats why all we DU members gotta be on the front battle lines in this election.

Putin was hoping trump could disrupt america enough BEFORE 2018 election. Trump still can if the chinese response to trump's latest tariff threat CRASHES US ECONOMY in the next few weeks.

that means that Putin has had trump achieve a majority of the goals he needed to set america up for destruction.

NO RUSSIAN BOT ATTACK will work this time. THE ONLY WAY WE DONT WIN IS IF THERE IS ARMED VIOLENCE AT THE VOTING BOOTHS

4. Why are you so confident that No Russian Bot attack will work this time ? Republicans have blocked

extra funds to support the effort to protect the integrity of the election system and you can bet Republicans will be doubling down on voter suppression in Red states.

If you accept the premise that Putin knows that he is fucked if Democrats get even one of the branches back, because that will be the start of showing the American public what happened, then he will have been working on other as yet unknown methods of screwing the election up for Democrats.
