During former FBI Director James Comey's testimony to the Senate intelligence committee, he emphasized the threat Russia poses to the U.S. "The Russians interfered in our election during the 2016 cycle.” Comey said. “They did it with purpose. They did it with sophistication. They did it with overwhelming technical efforts. . . . I's a long-term practice of theirs. . . . They'll be back."

Did the Russians succeed in causing doubt and strife in U.S. politics and our relations with our allies?
