Russian interference in the 2020 election: why you should care | Just The FAQs

Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential elections and helped President Donald Trump win. We look back at history and ask: will they do it again?

Social-media posts spread discord and lies to more than 100 million people. Sophisticated hackers stole a candidate’s email and political strategy, then revealed them to the world.

These were among the tactics the Russian government and firms tied to the Kremlin used to in what federal investigators determined was a “sweeping and systematic” effort to undermine Americans’ confidence in their democracy and help Donald Trump win the presidency in 2016.

The man who ran that probe, Robert Mueller, sounded an alarm this week that Russia shows little sign of stopping.

    This is bizzare considering US-Russia relations are on the hottest while Trump is in Presidency, not other president. I think it is unlikely Russia will help Trump win in 2020 elections, I think either they will stay neutral or back Dcrat candidate (please #cmiiw). I am not American and I'm pretty centrist as well.

    Hillary Clinton was behind the overthrow of the Sovereign Nation of Libya and she was responsible for the brutal murder of mohammar Kadafi and Putin was next on the list. Yes she wanted to get rid of Putin so you don't think Putin wants to defend his country and himself?
