This is nothing more than another example of Democrat sleight of (left) hand. No, the Russians did not “hack the election”; Hillary Clinton, the DNC, and John Podesta had their emails hacked. Russians may have done it, “the Russians” may have done it, or someone else entirely may have done it, but even if the Russians did do it, the result was not a hacked election but a better-informed electorate (albeit via unethical means, as in the Romney situation). And no, the Russians did not flood the market with fake news. The fake news came primarily from clumsy anti-Trump zealots who had the idiotic idea that fake Clinton stories would in some way harm Trump instead, and by skilled ideologues like Bob Cesca, who invested a lot of time and effort into subtle fakery, only to see it come to nothing.
