I must admit it's more than a little amusing to see the Left suddenly expressing concern about the Russian influence on American politics.

Over four years ago, Dem strategist Paul Begala was among those applauding Barack Obama for zinging Mitt Romney about the continued threat from Russia:
POTUS nails Mitt for saying Russia our #1 geostrategic threat. "The 1980's called. They want their foreign policy back." Bam!

All that mockery of Romney is coming back to bite the Dems now that they’re sounding the alarm about Russia, but Begala admits he (and others) were wrong:
So….maybe Russia is a geopolitical threat after all? Even though you claimed the opposite four years ago? https://t.co/GhCsXx9kqf
