Most societies are under attack by the Russian government, or some other entity. European society is no doubt being influenced by both the American and Russian governments in various ways, some sneakier than others.

Here's a Washington Post article detailing the 'attack'.

 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/powerpost/conservative-gop-caucus-talked-to-trump-about-releasing-surveillance-memo-before-launching-campaign/2018/01/23/7ff2a198-0037-11e8-bb03-722769454f82_story.html?utm_term=.cfc5d32bd786

 

TL;DR: Democrats say that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 election, and Republicans say that Democrats are abusing the powers of the FBI and falsifying documents to create a false narrative of Russian interference.

 

 

The stupid part about this whole thing is that no matter who is right, the debate itself ensures that Russia wins. If Russia did interfere in order to destabilize the government, they have clearly been successful. But if the interference narrative was simply a ploy by Democrats to discredit the president, Russia is still in a great position to take advantage of the destabilization that the US government has brought on itself.
