In The Federalist, Sumantra Maitra reminds conservatives and all Americans to remain focused on what really matters in the Russia investigation. He writes:
Nate Silver, of all people, recently tweeted that the scale of Russian involvement in the 2016 election was quite small, and its effect was not visible. Silver is of course not a Russian agent, nor should this sentiment be out of place.
Russians are not allies, and I have written a whole paper on that. And there has been interference in Western societies by Russian intelligence. However, the sources of our problems of polarization and social distrust, whether in Europe or in the United States, are much deeper than that. The two simple but important questions to look for in the future are these.
One: Is or was there any direct collusion between Russian intel and the Trump admin (or, in our case, Brexiters)?
Two: How much interference was there in American society through social media, which the left now wants to control? Also, what empirical evidence is there to show how much of that swayed the actual vote count in the election or the Brexit vote?
Conservatives in the United States should let the Mueller investigation answer these two specific questions, because that is all that matters.
