What’s Up with Russia

The past few weeks have been dominated by a flurry of news surrounding Russia’s involvement with email leaks and how they intended to influence the election. If you still aren’t entirely sure of what the fuck is going on, here it is briefly:

If you want to see the emails for yourselves here are the DNC emails and here are the Podesta emails.
