Right in the middle of the huge controversy surrounding the alleged Russian interference in the past election, some people wonder just how much influence foreign powers have over our own politics. For Democrats, creating this speculation was a perfect oportunity because it oferred an excuse to justify their failure to win the election. Nevertheless, what isn’t being mentioned is that intelligence meddling in foreign elections is nothing new.

As we reported earlier, Defense Secretary James Mattis mentioned he firmly believes Russia has interfered in many elections, not just in the United States, but in other democratic countries too. Far from being new, Russian interference in foreign elections goes back decades and decades.

Even though Democrats like to victimize themselves, evidence paints a different picture. Recently, the Obama Administration was involved in an attempt to influence the Israeli election.

Now, a new Wikileaks exposed CIA involvement in French elections. CIA operatives closely monitored French president, Nicolas Sarkozy:

“Analysts in CIA’s Office of Russian and European Analysis (OREA) closely watched the Oct 9th and Oct 16th Socialist primaries and will be closely monitoring the April 22nd and May 6th 2012 Presidential elections. Of particular interest is President Sarkozy, the Socialist Party (PS), and other potential candidate’s plans and intentions for these elections,” one of the three CIA orders released by WikiLeaks states.

The report goes on to prove how involved American intelligence is in overseas elections, specially under the leadership of former President Obama. Despite this, Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats from the country, saying:

“I have issued an executive order that provides additional authority for responding to certain cyber activity that seeks to interfere with or undermine our election processes and institutions, or those of our allies or partners,”

France is America’s oldest ally. By Obama’s logic, the French have every right to expel American diplomats from France. But that would have garnered a absolute different reaction from the previous administration.

The new leaks tell us that all the outrage over election interference is all smoke and mirrors. Democrats have never been able to accept that they lost, so they have used Russia as a scapegoat. Leaks like this prove nothing but how childish and stubborn Democrats are. A pity.
