not that thinking, rational people needed anymore but the GOP controlled Senate Intelligence committee just released their 2nd report and found (again)
The Senate committee's key finding in its report, published on Tuesday, says that Russia’s Internet Research Agency “sought to influence the 2016 US presidential election by harming Hillary Clinton's chances of success and supporting Donald Trump at the direction of the Kremlin."“Masquerading as Americans, these operatives used targeted advertisements, intentionally falsified news articles, self-generated contents, and social media platform tools to interact with and attempt to deceive tens of millions of social media users in the United States,” the report says.
It continues: “This campaign sought to polarise Americans on the basis of societal, ideological, and racial differences, provoked real world events, and was part of a foreign government's covert support of Russia's favored candidate in the US presidential election.”
Yup they did such a good job of it too that they actually were celebrating the election all the way over in Russia with Champagne
from the senate report
Messages obtained by the Senate Intelligence Committee showed IRA operatives celebrating Trump's victory. After the election, one operative wrote, "We uncorked a tiny bottle of champagne ... took one gulp each and looked into each other's eyes. .... We uttered almost in unison: 'We made America great.'"
