This has been the longest running piece of fake news that you have ever experienced. For the record, Russia did not throw the election. This has been the biggest piece of political gamesmanship ever perpetrated on a headline reading, uninformed voting public. Russia controls nothing within our borders.

So, what should Americans note? Hard proof is still missing. The …
