The 2016 presidential election is still shrouded in controversy, even now, a year after it was held. People continue to question whether or not Russia interfered in the election on behalf of President Trump. There is even a special prosecutor investigating if there was collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. This has led to a great deal of suspicion whenever President Trump and President Putin meet. Russia has continued to deny interfering in the election, as they did again when the two presidents met in Vietnam. President Trump assured reporters that President Putin denied Russian involvement in the election and he indicated to reporters that President Putin appears insulted by the whole matter. President Trump also said that he believed Putin on this issue. This leads one to ask a question: Did Russia really interfere in the 2016 presidential election?

Those who feel that Russia interfered argue that every intelligence agency we have said they interfered. They point out that there were sanctions imposed on Russia by the Obama administration because of their interference in the election. Plus, there are people who believe that some of the people working for Russia at the time have come forward and admitted to interfering in the election. Finally, they find it disgusting that President Trump would believe a foreign government over his own intelligence agencies.

People who feel that Russia did not interfere in the election argue that this is a left wing pipe dream. They see the Democrats desperately trying to find any reason to explain why they lost. Many feel that, in the end, the special prosecutor will vindicate President Trump and his campaign. There are those who also think this may be a smoke screen by some other government that is trying to sabotage relations between the United States and Russia.
