Let us stipulate, for the purposes of discussion, that the Russians are constantly trying to hack both government and private email — as are the Chinese, whose hacking of the Office of Personnel Management in 2015 caused a major security breach.Apparently it affected the Democrats' memories...
There is no evidence — none — that Russian hacking affected the voting process. In fact, the recounts initiated by Green Party candidate Jill Stein only reaffirmed the final result in the upper Midwest states where Trump broke through the “Blue Wall.”
The two hacking episodes in question refer to the the Democratic National Committee (DNC) email server, and the hack of Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s email account. (Wikileaks released both sets of emails, denying Russian involvement.)
Whether the Russians were involved or not, it is arguably true that both email hacks did affect on the election, although it is impossible to quantify exactly what that effect was.
