Especially all the text messages and communications that have now come to light between the FBI, Obama's DOJ and the Clinton campaign showing a clear orchestration in monitoring and trying to get any dirt they could on the Trump campaign at the time, including colluding with foreign sources and spy agents, the very thing that they accuse Trump of doing!

Maybe it's "clear" if you get your news from Fox News, Infowars, etc who omitted context that came out mere hours later on other news outlets that made their theory look very unlikely.

"People familiar with the matter strongly dispute the assertion that the text message referenced the Clinton email probe. The text message, they say, was actually referencing Obama's desire to be kept abreast on the FBI's investigation into Russian election meddling.

One former Obama official told CNN that the idea the text message was about the Clinton email investigation was "total nonsense," noting that the theory did not conform with the timeline of events.

Indeed, the text message was sent on September 2, 2016, months after the bureau had closed its investigation into Clinton, and before it reopened that investigation. But September 2, 2016 was just days before Obama confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin over Russia's meddling in the presidential election."

Guess what Obama did just 3 days after that text?
He confronted Putin about Russia's meddling in the 2016 election. So it is far more likely that the text was about the Presiden't interest in the FBI's Russia probe, rather than an investigation that was closed months ago.

Also, this text comes from the same guy who just weeks ago reported on the totally ridiculous (joke) text about a secret society, supposedly plotting against Trump.

It was so stupid that even the Fox News reporter looked stunned.
Turns out it appears to have been a joke. Duh. Same guy again. No surprise that he once again omitted important context.

As for "The only reason Russia is even a topic at this point is because Trump won", perhaps. But just like the DNC leaked emails, it's good for the public to know.
As for what they did, there was also lot of fake news bots on Facebook, Twitter, etc and just a few days ago it was revealed that they actually penetrated some voting systems:
"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."
