Influenced? Maybe but only by revealing the truth about the DNC. We've seen the reaction the DNC has to the truth, like a vampire exposed to sunlight.

No they haven't and you have no proof.

Yes, but it doesn't matter what I think. I'm confident the independent investigation will uncover the truth, one way or the other.

I think Trump once used Russian Salad Dressing and that's enough of a connection for the losers of the last election (Media, Dims, establishment including Repubs) to make a big deal about it.

I think the anti-Russian hysteria is pathetic.

i definitely believe Russia attempted to influence the elections and I also believe very strongly that Russia is influencing Trump to a substantial degree.

This story is just the latest example of Trump doing favors for Putin, for no discernable reason. Trump is bending over backwards to do one favor after another. Why is this? Simple. Trump is in bed with russia.

I think that Russia determined that Trump was more beneficial to their interests than Clinton. May have thought he was more easily manipulated or compromised and would have tried to influence the election if they saw an opening. Meaning they probably tried.

Absent proof, no one can say that it did or did not happen.

And that is not even the real issue to anyone with even a room temperature IQ. The real issue is that Trump said and did things that ONLY made his job and life more difficult. And for no appreciable gain. That goes to cleverness and competence.

Any POTUS candidate that volunteers the phrase "I admire Putin" is a complete idiot and deserves what they get.

& this is why the Constitution has domestic & foreign emoluments clause, do you think these are still necessary?
