What did Russia do during the 2016 United States presidential election? Did they interfere? Did they work to throw the election to Trump?
There’s been suspicions about this for a while now, and electoral meddling is something Russia has done through parts of Europe. But doing it here in the USA would be something entirely new and different. It also would be without precedent, as while we’ve fucked with elections before, we haven’t fucked with the ones in Russia. If we had, Putin wouldn’t be in charge anymore.
I remain somewhat skeptical of the idea of them meddling in our election, but I can’t dismiss it out of hand, and the fact that now a bipartisan group of American politicians are getting into the action.
I’d very much like to have a full investigation here and find out exactly what happened. It’s worth knowing so that we can prevent it from happening again.
