Well according to the democrats they were hacked by the Russians and the truth about Hillary and her party came out. I don't think it was the hacking that ticked them off, it was the truth. They need ignorant voters to win.

They did not affect the election. What they did was to cast doubt on whichever candidate won. The Democrats have played into this and amplified the affects by trying to undermine the president at every turn. It is disgraceful.

I'd be more concerned about if they tried to hack voting machines (or the actual voting process) than anything mentioned above.

i do not remember any town hall or Rallys that the Russians were in charge of....

They know because they are much smarter than you, the only reason you did not vote for Hillary is because your simple little mind was persuaded by Russian trolls and russian bots...either that or you belong to the KKK!

You are stupid, disgusting, deplorable unwashed scum! And I would like to welcome you over for a beer, my friend.

They can't. Voting machines are not connected to the internet.

And we now know that the DNC computers were not hacked either. Files were downloaded onto a thumb drive, which means an inside job.

These were the good guys but a lot of voting machines can be hacked.

The machines might not be connected to the internet but they do get connected to computers (that have been presumably connected to the internet at some time) to get updates for the ballots. While the modern voting machine is great any time computers are involved there's a chance for bad stuff to happen.

The reality is they wanted us at each others' throats. They have succeeded. Just wish more people would start seeing this and call for an end to the meaningless investigations.

T?e Russians created a lot of anti-Hillary memes and posted them on Facebook, causing millions of voters to change their minds and vote for Donald Trump, thereby stealing the election.

At least, that's the scuttlebutt.

Which is odd, because The Don never wanted, or expected to be President...and Melania cried tears of anguish as soon as he won.

It was a brilliant plan.

so with that in mind, are there any EXAMPLES of this out there? did they do it by sublimal messaging, did they put ads in ice cubes in a glass? JUST WONDERING?

so again the Lefties that usually ring in on these subjects, from B J F to the Buffalo boy, how did they affect the election?

Yappi & PM are right - the ONLY impact the Russians had on the election was to poison the atmosphere around Trump's victory. And the ONLY reason it worked is because the democrats and media fell for it hook, line and sinker.

how about the FBI and DOJ going after the Media for their attempt to sway the election......was the Russians paying them to do 90% of their newscast going after Trump? O r did the Russians have spies in these so-called news organizations? has anybody checked Chuck Todd's or George Stenapolois ties to the Ruskies? how about MIKA( sounds like a Russian Name) getting Joe Scarbough to switch to the Dark side....

They have been trying to hack into voting machines, registered voter databases, etc.

Did Trumps (Jared's) data operation work with Russian Hackers to target deceptive messages. Here is an article on Politico that explains how they operate.

You laugh but some of the Fake Russian ads became Yappi threads.

Purple is correct. They paid for a lot of ads that targeted multiple sections of our society to make everyone doubt both candidates. The bigger question is when do they start hacking electronic voting machines and pick the candidates for us?

LOL!! I saw as many Trump memes as I did for Clinton. Who is dumb enough to look at a meme and say "I just had an epiphany! Even though I completely despise Trump I should vote for him because of this meme!" Not to mention Clinton won the popular vote. So, I guess those memes were only on facebook in the midwest?

Is wrong for a foreign country to get involved in other countries elections? If it is? I am sure glad under the Obama administration we did not get involved in Israels election a few years ago. Can you say what go around comes around?

Obama also meddled in Great Britain's Brexit vote and he meddled in the Ukrainian election which got Russia's attention.

That Russia tries to sow mischief in our elections should not be a surprise to anyone. It is our responsibility to make sure they are not successful. By their actions, the American media and the democrat party are complicate in the success of this most recent Russian interference. It was their decision to turn what would NORMALLY be a bipartisan effort to keep foreign influence out of our elections into a strategy to attack president Trump. Shame on them.

This isn't new for the Democrats though. They tried the same thing with Bush 43, buthad to back off after 9-11.
