How is Russia's posting ads on Facebook tantamount to "meddling" in the U.S. election?

    That higher authority is the Divine power of the Universa.

    Hacking is a crime. I have seen no evidence that Donald Trmp or anyone directed by him Hacked anyone.

    US intelligence agencies have done the same thing in other countries for the same purpose for decades.

    Until you folks can produce something the current POTUS actually did, or some way this materially and directly affect the outcome of the election, I’m not wasting my time on this issue.

    I don't believe the Mueller probe is constitutional and nothing you present here alters my opinion. I started a discussion in the Constitution sub-forum if you are interested in continuing the conversation along this line.

    And thank you, it was my pleasure.

    The stuff Fox News won't tell ya. Trumpians live in an information bubble. If Hannity or Carlson doesn't tell them what to think, they just stick their head in the sand. Once you've been brainwashed into believing that the press is the enemy of the people, intellectual curiosity gets put on a dusty shelf.

    It is no different than CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NYTimes, Washington Post, Huffington Post, shilling for the far left!

    As long as we don't wake up the morning after election day and find out that Yakov Smirnoff is our new President, I'm good. Anyway it's up to us to protect our voting systems, is it not?

    Its not illegal to talk to Russian people.
    It is illegal to lie to Congress about it; as Jeff Sessions did.

    Its also quite appropriate for questions to be asked when there are so many meetings between Russians and your campaign at the same time there is confirmed Russian meddling in our 2016 election.
