Ah, but the Russians weren’t trying to meddle in our election on Hillary’s behalf, were they? Go find evidence that Russia was attempting to get Hillary elected, and then come back.
In the meantime, we’re talking about Russia’s support for Trump, and their meddling in our election to get Trump elected.
BTW— you don’t know that Hillary paid for Steele to get this information. Steele hasn’t revealed who paid him to get it — and I believe that was the premise behind your original post.
