    We keep hearing from all sides that the Russians interfered with our 2016 election, but I have yet to hear any of them say exactly what the Russians did, where they did it, or which votes were influenced by it.

    this is a serious inquiry, what did they Russians do? where, when, to who? which states?

    Heir Mewler cant find anything, the IG cant find anything. So someone tell us, what did they do?

    From what I heard, they made tweets in Russian on Facebook. Little problem here: the people they were supposed to have influenced... didn’t... speak.... Russian. So in the words of the “intarwebs “.... FAIL!

    The answer of course is “nothing”. The left just can’t except the fact that they lost. Ironic since they spent so much time pissing their panties because they though Trump wouldn’t except the results if he lost.

    The scary thing is to look at HRC... she is such a sore loser now but imagine how sore of a winner she would be! Anyone who didn’t vote for her would face serious retaliation!

    It sounds just ridiculous and there was NO evidence provided ever . They say they have a lot but nobody has ever seen it.

    Aug,2:
    Sergey Lavrov: It's simply ridiculous when someone claims that funny pictures are used to undermine US democracy. This, I believe, is an extreme form of paranoia.
    Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov's remarks and answers to media questions at the news conference following the Russia-ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, Singapore, August 2, 2018

    The Guardian:
    A small office of Russian trolls could derail 241 years of US political history with a handful of dank memes and an advertising budget that would barely buy you a billboard in Brooklyn.
    Silicon Valley helped Russia sway the US election. So now what? | Emily Bell

    Is USA a banana republic to allow foreign countries to interfere into their elections? Why do Americans pay billions to secret services who can't provide safe and clear elections? Then fire those useless and people.

    And why is NOBODY talking about millions of illegals openly voting every other year for years? It's not interference? Deep State and their puppets in Congress and Intel just want to distract your attention from the real problems using alleged ones like "Russian interference". And they are also trying to de-legitimize the president.

    The Democratic National Committee revealed in June 2016 that hackers had compromised their computers and gained access to internal emails and the opposition research they had amassed on Trump. CrowdStrike, the company the DNC hired to investigate the intrusion, quickly said it had traced the intrusion to Russian government hackers.

    Hackers similarly breached the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

    The malicious software that had been implanted on the DNC’s servers bore striking similarity to programs used in previous attacks that other governments had said were carried out by the Russians. Malware often forces infected computers to communicate with machines elsewhere on the internet, to receive commands and steal information.

    Prosecutors offered a similarly detailed assessment in February of Russian nationals and businesses, some with ties to the Kremlin, that orchestrated a social media operation that appeared in millions of Americans’ Facebook and Twitter feeds as the 2016 campaign entered its final months

    Seems to be the gist of the article.

    Basically some Democrats voted for Trump at the last moment, because they believed social media ads by the Russians. Hard to fathom.

    OK...let me try

    Russians hacked into the DNC server much like the Watergate break-in broke into DNC headquarters. It was a crime then, it is a crime now

    They released that information through Wikileaks and Trump used that information in his campaign.

    Russians also engaged in a propaganda smear campaign against Hilary to help the candidate they preferred. That propaganda was readily distributed including on USMB
