As part of a campaign Trump supporters meet with Russians to get dirt on Hillary Clinton.
Which is a crime.
She is provided a document defaming Trump passed off as intelligence
It was intelligence (much of which has been proven true) gathered by an intelligence gathering company and by a British spy originally paid for by the RNC.
Does anyone really think Putin was not behind the Trump document? Putin wanted to mess up the election and did not care who won.
No one thinks that Putin was behind the Dossier. A British agent was behind the dossier. And Putin has already admitted he wanted Trump to win.
Many probably are ignorant of the the fact that Bernie Sanders at one time had a Russian flag in his office and went to Russia on his honeymoon.
Typical red baiting and another red herring by Republicans. RED-BAITING
Personally I am less concerned about this type of interference then actual voting by unauthorized voters.
That's a bit like being concerned you are out of beer when your house is on fire. There is little to no voter fraud. There is massive Russian hacking.
In California one can vote by mail and in at least one county a notice is sent out to confirm you are still eligible to vote. If you do not reply to the notice you get a ballot. I wonder how many ballots are sent to people who have moved and who uses these ballots.
In California if you vote by mail then show up to vote you only get a Provisional Ballot. Your vote does not even count unless there is a recount, Then it will have to be verified that you only voted once and it was a legal vote.
No doubt there will be attempts by Russia, China, North Korea and others to influence the 2018 election.
Almost missed that little attempted deflection. Our intel agencies are ALL warning that our elections systems, IT infrastructures, and our social media are all under attack by Russian hackers. I would say that goes a bit beyond just attempting to "influence" our elections.
