But, to suddenly raise the issue of Russian influnece and pursue it aggressively during the election would have been seen as purely opportunistic.
One thing they could not predict was a candidate who would collude with the Russian government to achieve victory and promote Russian interests.
Especially one that would pay them to interfere with the election like the DNC did. The entire debacle is a joke much like the National Intelligence agencies are turning out to be. I hear they charged 13 Russians whom they will never be able to prosecute. Can you just imagine all those folks that were going to vote for Clinton and when they seen a meme on FB they said nah, I'm with him!
