If the Russians did try to influence our last presidential election, and I have no doubt they did just as I have no doubt we return the favor, but why would they want President Trump instead of Hillary?? Hillary had a track record of being a total whore when it came to selling out the United States and they had to know Trump would not do that. It makes no sense.

    I agree with you Ricci.
    The media needs a story and Hillary needed an excuse.
    Alot of people gave her a hell of a lot of cash, and she lost!
    Trump 2020!

    enlighten you? OK. it's all complete and unadulterated BS. it's a BS story manufactured by the dims, fed to you by a totally biased media, and you are putting the cart before the horse when you take any of it seriously.

    when you don't take any of it seriously, and you realize what a load of crap it is, it makes a lot more sense.

    The Russian bot and information effort was to cause discord, distrust, divisive platforms and turmoil between Americans regardless who won. By and large they succeeded.

    Either the Russians had better polling data than most, or they believed that Clinton was a lock. Yes they were sowing discord, but I?ve always thought the real intent was to weaken a President Clinton, not to elect Trump.

    As polarized as the election was, it is hard to imagine that very many votes were changed or would have been expected to have been changed.

    A weakened Clinton would ave been a patsy.

    It all BS.

    The only thing they can do is make up garbage on social media and if you are influenced by social media as to who to vote for you probably shouldn't be voting.

    hillary is the one who used the russians and they used her back.

    I allways figured Hillary tried to double cross them after the info she bought and they turned the tables on her. My biggest point was what if they did try, was releasing the truth about her and her e-mails, ect. , really meddling. I would rather the truth come out no matter where or what country it came from. If our own media won't report it, maybe we need other countries to report it for them... to me this isn't exactly meddling, if they hacked into our voting machines, or power grid so voters couldn't make it to polls, or votes didn't get reported ect, that to me is meddling, reporting the truth should be acceptable no matter who, or what country does it

    What better way to discredit Trump and the conservative party than by faking this

    As you recall Hillary made a deal with the Russians and gave them uranium. So yes if they were going to try to influence an election they would have tried to influence it for Hillary.

    BUT like I said what better way to discredit Trump and the conservative party by faking all of this and only throwing one election but giving the Democrats control for the next 50 years.

    The whole Democratic party and the Russians are in cahoots together.

    It was part of a plot by Hillary's campaign to get info on Trump and his campaign. Every poll showed her winning by a mile, and so they all assumed it would be safe to do, because she would be in power and make it all stay disappeared. Problem was, it was discovered and reported to Trump who then ended up winning and plans to cover it all up had to be set in motion.

    Dan Bongino covers this all in some depth, if one cares to search his videos out.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    +1

    They thought she would be POTUS and it would all be wiped away by her boy comey.

    Now light needs to be shed on this and people need to go to jail.

    This is why Putin attacked the Clinton campaign. Not necessarily to support Trump, but to get revenge on Hillary.
    Hillary bad mouthed Putin in 2011 and he felt she contributed to protests against his election in Russia.

    Russians sought to influence the campaign! Astonishing!! Mayhem!!! Unheard of!!! Murder!!!!!
    So scream the Dems in politics, and at CNN and MSLSD.
    They are "shocked, shocked" that a foreign country would try to influence another election.

    I mean, the United States under a Great Democrat wouldn't do that. Would we?

    Obama State Dept: $350K For Campaign Infrastructure Used Against Netanyahu In Israel Election
    Michael W. Chapman
    By Michael W. Chapman | December 12, 2016 | 2:52 PM EST


    According to the U.S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations (PSI), the State Department gave $349,276 in U.S. taxpayer-funded grants to a political group in Israel to build a campaign operation, which subsequently was used to try to influence Israelis to vote against conservative Benjamin Netanyahu in the March 2015 election for prime minister.

    ******************************************************************************

    Lest we forget, we disliked the Chilean Socialist President, Allende, in 1972, and the CIA fomented a coup that led to his death.
    Nixon did that one.
    Kennedy got unhappy with what Diem was doing in South Vietnam in 1963, he supported a coup which caused his death.

    It is well known that the CIA paid big bucks to murder a foreign President, Castro.
    And then, there is Hillary and Barack in Libya. One dead Khadaffi.

    No, it is anathema to Americans, to think that a country would interfere with the election results of another country.

    Not only that Sir, but America (The Bastion of Liberty) has been interfering in Foreign Governments Elections since (I dont know, the 50's maybe?) Doubt that? You are being extremely Naive.

    Anyone remember the Assasination of the South Vietnamese President? I do.

    Very true. Probably much earlier than the 50s.
