  1. There are many good reasons to be highly skeptical of NBC’s hard push to sell the notion that “Russia stole the election.” One of these reasons is that Clinton — in spite of much opposition from the Dem voting base — got the most votes. Trump is president because he got the most electoral votes (check: electoral college process), something that a foreign entity couldn’t steal, influence, hack into, etc., etc. Since Trump took office, the rest of the world has noted his buildup of US/NATO troops near the Russian border. Russia was not surprised, and they and do not consider this a gesture of friendship.
