    a foreign government trying to influence an election, or our own government trying to influence an election.


    just for discussion purposes lets assume that the Russians tried to influence our election and the FBI and DOJ tried to influence our election. Doesn't matter who they tried to help or hurt.

    Which is worse?

    We spent 20 years influencing elections with tanks and artillery in Vietnam. In the end, we weren't very influential.

    A foreign government meddling in our democratic process to elect the highest official in the world that best serves THEIR interests or.......there is no or. That is worse than whatever bullshit your corporate masters are telling you to "think".
