Why does everyone always accuse Russia of meddling in the US election but China is far richer and more powerful then Russia?

If anyone would spend lots of money to meddle in the US elections it would be China with their 12.5 Trillion GDP. Not Russia who only has 1.5 Trillion GDP.

    From what I know, France, U.K., and Israel, do more but are not "enemies" of the U.S.

    Russia is trying to end the US influence over NATO so they can get NATO disbanded and restore the glorious Russian Empire. China seems to content to expand one man-made Pacific island at a time. Plus China highly values the US as a trading partner. And the FBI proved that it was Russia that meddled or tried to.

    Special counsel Robert Mueller’s report into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign spelled out in elaborate detail a sophisticated, Kremlin-led operation to sow division in the U.S. and upend the election by using cyberattacks and social media as weapons.

    The Russian operation was so successful, experts warn, they’ll almost certainly try again.

    China has not been found to do that.

    China is active stealing trade secrets,  scientific information and influencing policy that directly effects them.  Russia seems to specialize in creating chaos,  keeping Europe and the U.S. off balance .  It doesn't really cost them much do. 

    Both countries need to be watched and China presents more of a long range threat. 

    But, Russia has somehow co-opted our president and that's a problem.

    Because America has more bad blood with Russia (Cold War) and so it makes the idiotic conspiracy more believable.
