    Russia’s best case scenario isn’t having an impotent puppet like Trump in the White House, its driving the US toward civil unrest and dismantling the international system that for good or ill is kinda dependent on the stability of the United States.

    But Trump is protecting us from all enemies Foreign and Domestic, it’s in the oath of office that he took when he and Russia won the presidency.

    Russia’s wet dream would be a civil war

    It’s not practical or politically popular but the quick solution is to geofence all traffic outside the US for Election Day.

    That or go through the nearly-impossible and far more labor Intensive task of hardening the entire voting system (processes, hardware, communications).

    Security and functionality are opposite ends of the IT spectrum.

    There’s already deep discord. The country is divided and it has nothing to do with Russia.
