FBI Director James Comey on Russian interference in 2016 election

I’m surprised that foreign interference in American elections has not happened before. A confluence of events and actors have to happen in order for this to take place–Putin, Trump, Hillary, Wikileaks, the Internet, social media–and that perhaps conditions were only ripe in 2016 and not once before in 230 years of U.S. history. However, the precedence is set and we should expect more in the future.
