Re “Russian hacks on U.S. voting system wider than previously known,” in the June 14 Miami Herald. This informative article, though, deserved to be on the front page.
Instead, there was an oversized photo of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the latest in a series of officials refusing to answer — under oath and without legal justification — serious questions from senators of both parties regarding Russia’s involvement in our government and elections.
Without the leak of National Security Agency data to The Intercept that exposed the details of actual hacks into 39 states’ elections systems (including Florida’s), the American people would still be in the dark. This is the essence of the investigation and why it matters. Of course, this threatens the legitimacy of the current president, but the issue goes way beyond one man’s election.
Yet, on a daily basis, we’re being fed political theater, while the critical truth regarding the cyber attacks on our country is barely acknowledged.

Sessions even said under oath that he had no detailed briefings on Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election. This makes one wonder what else is being hidden. Why and what are we doing about it?
