According to recent reports, President Obama wants a full review of Russian hacking during 2016 election, ostensibly due to concerns that foreign interference may have tipped the electoral balance in Donald Trump's favor. Doc Thompson sees through this charade and points out that the key politicians behind the Russian investigation effort are motivated not by national security concerns, but by a desire to expand their own political influence and advance a progressive agenda.

"If you guys are really that concerned, why haven't you been that concerned prior to this?" Doc inquires. "And why are you only concerned with threats by cyber attacks conducted by foreign governments? What about foreign companies? Individuals? Domestic governments? Domestic companies? Domestic individuals? Then they put this out there as a power grab."

Listen live to The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson weekdays 6–9am ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
