US government blames Russia for suspicions that the Russians may have hacked the vote for Trump

According to the US government, who hacked the DNC?
Russia.
Then, having made that charge, the US government went on to charge that WHO might hack the vote for Donald Trump?
Russia.
And now, according to the US government, who deserves the blame for people’s doubts about the outcome of this last election?
Russia.
Thus spake Barack Obama’s White House, according to the New York Times (whose editors implicitly support that statement, even though it’s patently insane):
“The Kremlin probably expected that publicity surrounding the disclosures that followed the Russian government-directed compromises of emails from U.S. persons and institutions, including from U.S. political organizations, would raise questions about the integrity of the election process that could have undermined the legitimacy of the president-elect.
“Nevertheless, we stand behind our election results, which accurately reflect the will of the American people.”
That statement is delusional—and also vaguely menacing, since it implies that anyone who questions the “integrity of the election process” is a Kremlin dupe, if not a Kremlin stooge.
