I’ve written before that if Hillary Clinton had won the election last November the whole Russia thing would have completely fallen off the radar and gone away. Even before the election, Ex-DHS chief Jeh Johnson confirmed yesterday that Democrats didn’t seem very alarmed by Russian intrusions back when they were certain Hillary was going to win:

“Sometime in 2016, I became aware of a hack into systems of the Democratic National Committee,” Johnson said. “… I pressed my staff to know whether DHS was sufficiently proactive, and on the scene helping the DNC identify the intruders and patch vulnerabilities. The answer, to the best of my recollection, was not reassuring: the FBI and the DNC had been in contact with each other months before about the intrusion, and the DNC did not feel it needed DHS’s assistance at that time.”

The FBI reportedly faced a similar rejection.
