Opinion - Russia’s E-invaders Pose Threat To Our Democracy

To the editor: President Trump will never admit that Russia, our longtime adversary, has every reason to interfere in our elections; nor that aiding his 2016 campaign paid democracy-damaging dividends far beyond Russia’s wildest dreams.

Intent as the Russians are on helping reelect Trump, they will strive to divert Democrats from picking a viable nominee. That’s why Russian internet trolls have focused on smearing Sen. Elizabeth Warren; she appears sufficiently capable, experienced and moderate to attract a broad swath of voters.

Sen. Bernie Sanders offers Russia an appealing alternative to Warren. Though he leads in delegates declared, he has downsides that can be endlessly exploited. Plus, as a fallback, if Sanders were elected, he seems likely to sustain the democracy-weakening divisions that Trump has stoked.

Russia’s e-invaders pose a far more existential threat to our democracy than its armed forces.
