America lost a cyberwar to Russia in 2016. When will we have truth? | Timothy Snyder

Defeat is hard to face; but every delay in facing the hard facts makes matters worse Trump’s fantasy of a military parade and Trump’s choice to release or block congressional memos about the Russia probe, were the two big stories of last week.
