    The former, of course.
    Finished this the other day. The conclusion that Russia interfered in the 2016 US Presidential Elections is based on two things: (1) that the US 'intelligence community' had "high confidence" that the Russians were behind the hacking of the DNC, DCCC, etc. and (2) the Democratic Party hired a company to help secure their network, and that company said that it was the Russians.

    Nobody in the Trump campaign conspired with the Russian government, but a bunch of people committed perjury by lying to the special counsel's office and to the FBI, one guy committed a whole ton of fraud and acted as an unregistered agent for Ukraine, Turkey, and apparently Israel. However, no actual evidence is described that explain why it was concluded that the Russians interfered in the US elections. So, basically, we have no real way of knowing if it was, in fact, the Russians or not, since the US intelligence community is about as reliable as a used car salesman.

    Yeah, I went through the highlights - but the whole thing was a boring slog so...

    Back to socialism - not boring, just slow going!

    Augustine, a New Biography by James O'Donnell

    Not written from a Christian perspective. The author, annoyingly, goes out of his way to not capitalize God (i.e. "The trip to Hippo was more precisely focused on the Roman bureaucrat he hoped to win for god.", pg 24)

    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill
