[Marxism] Russian spying?

If I were a conspiracy theorist, I'd be arguing right now that Trump's
entire election was organized by that shadowy, behind-the-scenes group the
ACA... otherwise known as the American Comedians' Association. No sooner
than Trump gives a "presidential" speech than the glow from this is
completely overwhelmed by a new scandal. But the issue is serious in a way.

Did the Putin regime intervene in the US elections? I think they probably
did. After all, if they're willing to bomb the Syrian people to smithereens
to keep Assad in power, why wouldn't they hack a few computers to get the
president they like elected?

Of course, there's the question: Who is the US government to complain? This
is the government that spied on its allies, such as the German government,
for decades. Nor have they stopped simply at gathering information.
Time and again,
they've tried to influence the internal politics, such as in Venezuela
today. Or all the different coups they've helped organize.

The US and Russian governments aren't alone. Every government tries to get
inside information, and affect outcomes, in the affairs of other regimes.
Why wouldn't they?

The real problem for the US capitalist class is that they have a president
who seems to be looking out more for his own personal financial interests -
which are tied in with Russian oligarchs - than for the interests of the US
capitalist class as a whole. Now THAT is a real crime!
