“I think I’ll leave that to Bob Mueller to answer,” Vinograd replied. “What I do think is, we already know from the intelligence community — and the entire intelligence community agrees on this — is that Donald Trump was Russia’s preferred candidate. Now that is not because any kind of personal love for Donald Trump. It is because they viewed him and his election as being more preferable to advancing their policies and to advancing their mission again of undermining U.S. democracy by polarizing the American constituency and decreasing American leverage around the world, and that is what Vladimir Putin wants.”

And in Fox News Russia found a friendly partner in their goal to polarize the American people
in order to weaken the United States. Small issues like people kneeling before a football game
got massive coverage or that Hillary correctly said that coal miners need to find different jobs
and with Russia/Fox/GOP these issues got whipped up into wedge issues.
