I'll worry about Russia influencing the US Government when they have Russian citizens in US Government.
So fully paid up and loyal Russian spies are fine, so long as they are American born?

The Russians hacked the election. There's no doubt at all. They did that. It's been proven.
Bottom line no negotiations. They did this. Ignore it if you choose.

Aww, how cute the Deep State just summoned a new player.
- "There's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled," said former President Bush.
- Donald Trump has denied that Moscow tried to affect the vote.
- Speaking of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Bush called him "zero-sum."
With all these crazy news lately maybe I missed something like WHERE'S THIS EVIDENCE HE'S TALKING ABOUT?
Former President George W. Bush said on Thursday that "there's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled" in the 2016 American presidential election, forcefully rebutting fellow Republican Donald Trump's denials of Moscow trying to affect the vote.
While never mentioning President Trump by name, Bush appeared to be pushing back on Trump's attempts to have warmer relations with Russia, as well as his comments on immigration.
The White House did not immediately comment on Bush's remarks.
"There's pretty clear evidence that the Russians meddled," Bush said at a talk in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. "Whether they affected the outcome is another question."
Bush also said that "it's problematic that a foreign nation is involved in our election system. Our democracy is only as good as people trust the results."
U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded Russia meddled in the 2016 election to help Trump win. Numerous investigations are under way to determine whether Trump's campaign aided the Kremlin in its efforts.
The rest of the article is irrelevant, just posting because someone may have missed Mr. Bush's back at business now that Obama can't show his ass up since he's probably hiding in a bunker with his 30 lawyers.
Their lies just reinforce my opinion that they really did broke the law to push their agenda.

Bush is right- he is a genius and his intellect goes unnoticed. As he famously said "fool me once...shame on you. Fool me-you can't get fooled again."
But he has a point, there might be collusion with Russia that didn't alter the result and as the great man said "I believe man and fish can coexist peacefully" which is the most abstract form of pacifism I've seen.
