Do you think Russia attacked our democracy to steal the 2016 election in favor of Trump?

The Russians tried to sway the election in favor of trump via Facebook and Twitter posts and some fake news.

I'm not sure how big an impact it had on the election.
By itself...it had impact but not enough to sway the election.

The Comey letter however put it over the top. The absence of either and Trump would have lost

Russia did not attack or steal "your" democracy. Since the end of the USSR, Russia's democracy has been on the rise while democracy in the US has been on the wane ever since the end of WW II. The two of you are like ships passing in the night going in opposite directions.

Well anything is an improvement, when you start at rock bottom. Not exactly a compliment to the kleptocratic, authoritarian oligarchy that is the fake russian democracy.

Then there's the Zuckerberg actions against Trump.
The Zookiebird is now being sued for millions by a coalition of businessmen, lawyers and politicians. They are alleging unfair trade practices. Trump is leading the group. Included as defendants are Twitter and YouTube.

Stop and think about what you are saying because I don't think that you do. You just insinuated that Russia during the era of the USSR was more democratic than what it is today. What planet (or United Snakes city) do you live on/in?

Putin is too smart for this childish bullshit.
He doesn't have time for this kind of Democrat backstabbing anyway, he has an entire country to deal with every day.

Even IF........IF........it's Russian interference, it's not on Putin's behalf. It's some other interference. Possibly ones that aren't really Russian, they just want you to think that. Lets say, like the DNC using masked servers to relay their computer breeches from DC to Europe to Russia, and then back to their targets in the USA.

You know, because he's "Putin's lapdog" and stuff like that to make one feel better?

Foreigners interfere with elections all the time. Happened since before we were born and the left gave us the internet. We do the same thing. The same was done for Clintons, Obama, Biden.

Speak of internet, compare and contrast "Russian influences" to daily left run most information, which is really misinformation. And there's always this.......


Nope. Russia just wants to destroy confidence in our elections and the DOJ, FBI, CIA.

We all know how corrupt Russia is. They barely even hide it.

Rather than clean up their act, they want everyone to believe that everyone is corrupt.

They also knew that Trump is vain, stupid and arrogant.

Putin looks out for the interests of Russian national sovereignty.

Trump looked out for the interests of The United States national sovereignty.

Biden looks after the intetests if globalist technocrats who wish to destroy national sovereignty.

I believe if we wish to look into who influenced us and in what ways, the results should give us the clue. Putin and Trump do share one common goal, and that is the preservation of their respective nation states. The people we should really be looking at are those do not share this goal.

Trump was not political, just transactional.. Only what was in it for Trump matters.

Yes. I believe the Russians hacked the DNC emails and released them to WikiLeaks.

Good point. American backstabbing is different from Russian backstabbing. American political backstabbing is crude and with an intimidating face while Russian political backstabbing is acheived with a great deal of finese and a smile.
