So, It's the Russians' Fault That We Lack Political Trust!

Today, the Washington Post reported that there's a "broad covert Russian operation in the United States to sow public distrust in the upcoming presidential election and political institutions."

Now, I'm not going to assume that Russians are not hacking into our systems or disseminating propaganda (although the same story admits that the intelligence community lacks "definitive proof" of such a Russian influence operation), but really? Gallup (or is it Gallupov?) reporting makes abundantly clear that we don't need Russia's help in undermining public trust in our elections and political institutions.
