Politics is an evil, evil beast. When you add tech into it, well, let's just say it becomes more evil than you can imagine. The question at hand (without looking at the actual candidates): More importantly, if they did... How? My own 0.02 here: I don't think they specifically hacked the election, though I wouldn't be surprised if they contributed certain things towards the outcome of the election. Deliberately? Maybe. Inadvertently? Probably not I wouldn't put a disinformation campaign past Russia, through social media, et all. Then again, we've done the same, so are we any better? So what if Russia blasted Facebook, twitter, blog posts with 'fake news'? The MSM does this all the time, every day and nobody's pulling them in front of Congress, or The Senate.
