When a foreign adversary meddled in a presidential election

Byron York, Washington Examiner

In the 1990s, a hostile foreign power meddled in our presidential election. There is simply no comparison between the political conversation about the Clinton foreign influence scandal in the 1990s and today's conversation about the Trump-Russia affair. Of course, the circumstances and facts are different, but it seems reasonable to say that for whatever reason, Washington is far more upset about Russia's attempt to influence the election in 2016 than it was about China's attempt to do the same 20 years earlier.
