In any other reality, our government would admit we are in a state of war with Russia... a cyber war.

The hack of Yahoo was carried out with the backing of the Russian government.

Agreed, it's a cyber war with Russia. This hacking, plus the hacking of the DNC mail server and the attacks on US election systems is way beyond the pale. We need a thorough investigation, including the Trump team to see when and why they communicated with the Russians. I suspect collusion, but we'll have to wait for an investigation, and an independent prosecutor. Sessions is too compromised to handle any of this, and I'm glad he recused himself... I hope he keeps his paws out.
