Mother of all paranoid conspiracy theories. Wow. This is what the left has devolved into: Alex Jones style conspiracy mongering.
Dont know if you have an agenda or not, either way, I am not the left.

Lets sprinkle some Le Pen on those trump-russia connections, sorry rumors, sorry allegations, sorry fake news...

Nope, nothing to see here, move along folks... move along.

It is all playing out in front of your damned eyes and one thing is to be in disbelief and have a healthy sense of source criticism, specially in the dawn of a post-factual world, source criticism is perhaps THE most important feat to conquor. But ignorance? Lazy ignorance? No tolerance, sorry.

I don't think it'd go that far, but there's no question that Putin is trying to manipulate elections to get more favorable leaders. It's that slight spin on the dice that could lead to winning a scenario down the road.
I would argue "down the road" that we are allready half way down there.
Thing is, when you arrive at the end of that road, there is no u-turns left to take.
