9. That's what I'm saying

We need to figure out a way to keep stuff like this from interfering with our electoral process. It's bad enough that Russia was involved. It's even worse that there were government agents (i.e. Comey) sitting on this potentially explosive information and depriving we the people of having this information in order to make an informed decision at the polls, not to mention leaking potentially explosive information on the opposing candidate in order to sway the election in his/her preferred way. The information obviously didn't affect my decision to cast a vote for HRC but there is evidence that Comey's letter two weeks before the election caused some people to vote for Trump (or not vote for Hillary). Evidence that the Trump campaign was colluding with Russia during the election season might have caused some people to re-think their vote for Trump but they weren't able to make that informed decision. Now, it's too late. And matters are worse.
