voter fraudOn Thursday, Reuters suggested that GOP nominee Donald Trump and others concerned about voter fraud in the November election are acting as “unwitting” agents of Russia and Vladimir Putin.

According to Reuters (Emphasis added):

U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials are warning that hackers with ties to Russia’s intelligence services could try to undermine the credibility of the presidential election by posting documents online purporting to show evidence of voter fraud.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said however, that the U.S. election system is so large, diffuse and antiquated that hackers would not be able to change the outcome of the Nov. 8 election.

But hackers could post documents, some of which might be falsified, that are designed to create public perceptions of widespread voter fraud, the officials said.

Never mind videos showing Democrat operatives bragging about actual voter fraud and never mind actual investigations of voter fraud in places like Indiana.  Now we’re supposed to believe that doesn’t exist and voter fraud never happens.

“They said that they did not have specific evidence of such a plan, but state and local election authorities had been warned to be vigilant for hacking attempts,” Reuters added.

Got that?  There is no evidence of such a plan, but Democrats and their allies in the media are pushing the idea that anyone concerned about voter fraud are acting as Russian agents.

The article continues:

U.S. officials familiar with hacking directed against American voting systems said evidence indicates that suspected Russian government-backed hackers have so far tried to attack voter registration databases operated by more than 20 states. Tracing the attacks can be difficult but breaches of only two such databases have been confirmed, they said.

The officials said there is no evidence that any hackers have succeeded in accessing equipment or databases used to record votes. Many states use systems that would be difficult to hack or defraud, including paper ballots which initially are tallied by machines.

But wait — didn’t the article just say there was no evidence of such a plan?

Toward the end of the article, we find this:

Clinton supporters said Trump is unwittingly aiding an effort by Russian President Vladimir Putin to undercut the credibility of the vote. Washington and Moscow are at odds over several issues, from Russian involvement in the Ukraine conflict, the war in Syria and cyber attacks.

“Trump does not even know he is being manipulated,” said Michael Morell, a former deputy CIA director who has endorsed Clinton. “Trump is an unwitting agent of Putin.”

Got that?  The suggestion is also quite clear: Anyone who thinks there’s voter fraud is acting as a Russian agent.
