elections of various democracies. I feel strongly that his stance here is in MAJOR conflict with his so-called commander-in-chief's view, and that trouble's abrewin between the General and the idiot - am I making too big of a deal over this?? - - - like, will DFT dare challenge his "MAD DOG" on this? - ie, is another departure slouching its way towards drumpfville??

From The Hill this morning:

Defense Secretary James Mattis on Thursday said that there was "very little doubt" Russia has attempted to interfere in democratic elections in the past.

"There is very little doubt that they have either interfered or attempted to interfere in a number of elections in democracies," Mattis said while answering questions at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

He added that he does not feel compelled to respond to Russian officials who were not pleased with his call to deal with Moscow from a position of strength.
"I have no need to respond to the Russian statement at all. NATO has always stood for military strength and protection of democracies and the freedoms we intend to pass on to our children," he said.
