Despite not providing any credible evidence of Russian meddling in 2016, henceforth the Kremlin's influence campaigns on the American public will be so slick and so devious, we won't be able to even quantify it. This is subjectivity and Russophobia on steroids. Here, the logic goes from unproven assertion to imaginary assertion. This is 'magical thinking', or put another way, delusional paranoia. And from the supposed top US intelligence official too. How is a country meant to formulate effective policies when it is guided by such deluded people?
