Honestly, I can't believe it has been going on for so long as a major development in american media and politics.....

What were russia involvment ? A few targeted ads on facebook that were ridiculously low in numbers compared to the money spent by the two candidates, some bots on Twitter, the hack of the democratic commitee and some mail of Podesta, which faled too dig something important.

In comparison of that, the USA has decades of history of meddling with other country politics, by military actions, by sanctions, by financing coup d'etat and other coloured revolutions. Clinton herself tried to boost up Russian opposition, and medlde in Russian politics as the US did in Ukraine.

The US got a taste of their own medicine, and on a so little scale and so little level, that it is really ridiculous to see the reactions. You reap what you sow.

You're right about USA's history in meddling with other countries politics.
Though in regards to what Russia did in 2016, there is the DNC hack, and this came up a few days ago: https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/elections/russians-penetrated-u-s-voter-systems-says-top-u-s-n845721
"Russians penetrated U.S. voter systems, top U.S. official says"
"We saw a targeting of 21 states and an exceptionally small number of them were actually successfully penetrated."

I don't know what that means exactly. I've always been under the impression that no actual votes were tampered with, and that still appears to be the case.
"There is no evidence that any of the registration rolls were altered in any fashion, according to U.S. officials."
