Rus­sians brag about med­dling: Rus­sian law­mak­ers are now openly boast­ing that their coun­try helped elect Don­ald Trump. Dis­cussing wan­ing U.S. in­flu­ence around the world, Duma mem­ber Vy­ach­eslav Nikonov said on Rus­sian TV this week that U.S. in­tel­li­gence “missed it when Rus­sian in­tel­li­gence stole the pres­i­dency of the United States.” Ear­lier this month, Nikita Isaev, leader of the far-right New Rus­sia Move­ment, said on Rus­sian state TV that Moscow should re­lease its com­pro­mis­ing ma­te­rial on Trump in re­tal­i­a­tion for the U.S. clos­ing Rus­sian diplo­matic com­pounds. When asked whether the Krem­lin had such in­for­ma­tion on the U.S. pres­i­dent, Isaev said, “Of course we have it!”
