How specifically is Russia interferring in our election?  What exactly are they doing and how does it favor Trump?

Update:

I got some of the Russian stuff on my Facebook in 2016 but I recognized it was bs right away.  It made no sense at all.  I just got rid of it.

    "How specifically is Russia interferring in our election? What exactly are they doing and how does it favor Trump?"

    I'm still trying to figure out what magical power these "Russians" have that $60 000 worth of Facebook advertising can apparently buy an election. But Hillary lost despite having the full political Establishment behind her, with $$$ MILLIONS $$$ of dollars of globalist funding and resources from such organizations like the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the RIIA, AIPAC, and persistent propaganda on most mainstream Establishment media channels

    The "Russian" election fiasco is still some weird conspiracy theory that has never been properly proven. I don't even know how some "hackers" working in the background can beat out globalists that call themselves "American" and finance their interests openly with millions of dollars. ???

    Leave it to a conservative to oppose the act of criticizing people for their opinions.  Stay in your lane and stop complaining about the LEGAL and MORAL act of criticizing people for their opinions!

    Nations have been attempting and failing to 'interfere' in our elections since our founding. 

    Our founders always saw this as part of 'Divine Providence,' which also includes many other struggles between good and evil during elections, from natural phenomena and accidents unexpectedly killing people or disrupting voting, to sudden illnesses, to extortion, bribery, wild rumors, voter suppression, strategic 'redistricting' and the like. 

    Foreign nations have learned to use these 'tools' also to exert their influence into our system, mostly using misinformation and 'spin.' Most of the time, the will of the American people is not affected it by it in any measurable way, since the actual factors are mind-bogglingly complex, (by design). They also found that trying to address each 'influence' to bring advantage to one party or candidate only leads to ten more taking its place, which is why our founders saw GOD Alone, i.e. 'Divine Providence' as the Determiner of our political fate and ongoing history. No one can truly 'control' all of these factors and none of them is truly 'new.' They just get proportionately bigger or smaller each time and take different forms.

    Democrats are just trying to use this 'Russian conspiracy' and similar hoax theories to create rumors that favor their candidate and influence how people vote. They have lots of help from an eager Press. Pissing away $50 million tax-payer dollars with help from the FBI 'investigating the Russians' hasn't done anything except make the rumors about the President appear legitimate and the attempted 'Russian' influence somehow more dangerous than usual, even after failing to link our current President to any wrongdoing or international conspiracies, and also admitting that the Russians didn't exert any measurable influence over the actual election results themselves.

    People will believe what they wish and vote how they wish, regardless. Having an 'excuse' to vote one way or the other is only a small overall part of any election, and most people vote from a deeper inspiration and instinct than this anyway.

    They spread false news, divide the electorate by whipping up racial animosity and using immigration as a wedge issue, whip up hysteria about socialism and capitalism, and seek to set people at each other's throats. You can see these efforts every day right here, thanks to TROLLS.
