Of course Putin is very smart He knows that Donnie owes him one for the Russian’s election efforts and, even if Mr Trump does not stay bought, Putin knows that Donnie does not care if the Russian military attacks and undermines ANY American institution that does not affect the Trumps directly.
Trump and many of his supporters will not care if Russia tries to bring down American churches or charities (as long as they are not Mr Trump’s own churches or charities), because these are private entities and it is up to them to protect their servers and their data, so such attacks could never be considered an act of war. Any attacks by Russian military cyber teams on the NFL or NBA, on CBS or FOX would be similarly sluffed off on the grounds that they are private entities.
They will even happily turn a blind eye to the hacking and damaging of foreign entities on our soil, such as Barclays Bank or Shell Oil, the Japanese or Australian governments, NATO, the UN or the IMF – unless Trump is trying to do a deal with one of them at the time. He and his supporters will reason that these entities were not simply spending enough on defense.
PS: Britain voted AGAINST Israel for the proposal on which the US abstained from voting.
In May's mind that makes the US more anti-Israel than Britain.

GOP Congressman: Russian Hackers ‘Merely Did What The Media Should’ve Done’
Oh good. It follows the media should be hacking his personal e-mails and his mobile phone conversations (and those of his wife and children and all of his staffers and their families).
Does he promise the journalists will face no legal penalties when they do?
