Iv seen reports saying they know Russia hacked some state election systems... but did not change any voting data.
I guess what I'm not sure of, is if they didn't change any votes, how did they actually interfere?
Fake news? Slanderous reporting? Exposing How the DNC treated Bernie?
Aside from changing votes, how can they really be to blAme?
There are many reason Putin would not want Clinton to win.
One being that he's probbaly got a few intelligent thoughts in his head..
So what ?
Russia used the power of gossip to get Trump elected ?

The 2016 presidential race was rife with disinformation, none more blatant than fake news -- hoaxes, half-truths, outright lies -- that flashed through the internet at warp speed.
Take, for example, "Pizzagate," a made-up story of a pedophilia ring supposedly being run out of a Washington, D.C. pizza parlor by none other than Hillary Clinton and her campaign chairman John Podesta. Fueled by conspiracy theorists posting on social media sites like Reddit, Facebook and Twitter, the story picked up so much traction that The New York Times and the Washington Post were forced to track it down, finally debunking it.
Then there were the stories about Clinton's health. Not just her actual September bout with pneumonia, but other stories claiming she had a brain injury and was losing her mind.
Two new studies that were cited by media outlets, including the Washington Post, claim Russia used "thousands of botnets, teams of paid human 'trolls,' and networks of websites and social-media accounts" to "echo and amplify" false or misleading tweets, Facebook posts, videos and media reports.

Why would they do that? If Putin wanted one of the candidates to win, it would have been Rand Paul. Trump is pretty hostile to Putin, so why would Putin help Trump win?
Russia should use its special services within the borders of the United States to fuel instability and separatism, for instance, provoke "Afro-American racists". Russia should "introduce geopolitical disorder into internal American activity, encouraging all kinds of separatism and ethnic, social and racial conflicts, actively supporting all dissident movements – extremist, racist, and sectarian groups, thus destabilizing internal political processes in the U.S. It would also make sense simultaneously to support isolationist tendencies in American politics."[1
Russia and Putin want Americans to loose faith in our government and fight among ourselves.

THIS is the kind of stuff the Trump fanatics don't read...
The declassified 14-page report, which was released in January, concluded Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered the effort to undermine faith in the U.S. presidential election and helped Trump win the White House.

You saw it everywhere.
Remember the vid of her kidding around with a reporter making a baffled face that became Hillary having a seizure? Remember Hillary is falling down all the time?
Remember an altered photo of the back of her skirt?
Memes and bizarre stories all last summer?
That was them.
Remember wiki leaks and tens of thousands of emails released on a weekly basis?
That was them.
Perhaps Cambridge Anyaltica?...anyone?
