From Bloomberg here:
The U.S. public didn’t quite buy Clinton’s “the Russians did it” line last year, and she lost the election. By now, though, many Americans are sold on it. That may be an Iraq-sized mistake, leading to a dangerous failure to recognize that Donald Trump’s victory was an American phenomenon, not a Russian-made one. Authoritarian regimes such as Putin’s routinely use external enemies to gloss over domestic divisions and distract the public from problems at home. In a functioning democracy, such tactics should not succeed.
