Wild goose chase. Such the description of the recent accusation that Russia is interfering with American mid-term elections.
As Secretary of Defense Mattis conceded, "The election-interference culprits are people using software that leaves a false trail to Russia. In early 2017...a CIA whistle-blower said there was such software and many people had it. While the declaration on 08-02-18 that the Russians are interfering with the 2018 elections is most probably FALSE...nonetheless...the defense being erected to stop any interference from wherever is laudable."
