    It is.

    In fact, both countries have been interfering with each others elections since the cold war. It is pretty much standard practice.

    But if the recent situation in Syria proves anything, it is that the masses are incredibly stupid. And will buy just about any bullshit story they are fed.

    Make up your mind, is it impossible to fix an election or not?

    Source(s): Whataboutism (also known as whataboutery) is a variant of the tu quoque logical fallacy that attempts to discredit an opponent's position by charging them with hypocrisy without directly refuting or disproving their argument, which is particularly associated with Soviet and Russian propaganda.

      So they broke into 21 reported voter bases and did..........nothing. Delusional.

    The alarming part is the Republican party welcoming it and probably hiring them to do it.

      Well you argument might hold water ? if Russia had not also interfered in the politics of Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Italy, Latvia, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, what have they done to deserve it?
