While the Democrats and the media continue to fish for any shred of evidence of Russia collusion by the Trump campaign, the evidence points to Democrats having worked with and against Russia openly to meddle in past elections.
In the 1990's Time Magazine bragged about Bill Clinton successful send a team to Russia to get Boris Yeltsin elected. This resulted in information coming out about Ted Kennedy working Andropov to illegally defeat Reagan.
Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy.
“On 9-10 May of this year,” the May 14 memorandum explained, “Sen. Edward Kennedy’s close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow.” (Tunney was Kennedy’s law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.) “The senator charged Tunney to convey the following message, through confidential contacts, to the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Y. Andropov.”
Kennedy’s message was simple. He proposed an unabashed quid pro quo. Kennedy would lend Andropov a hand in dealing with President Reagan. In return, the Soviet leader would lend the Democratic Party a hand in challenging Reagan in the 1984 presidential election. “The only real potential threats to Reagan are problems of war and peace and Soviet-American relations,” the memorandum stated. “These issues, according to the senator, will without a doubt become the most important of the election campaign.”

Today, Fusion GPS employee Rinat Akhmetshin today confirmed his attendance at a meeting with Donald Trump Jr, Paul Manafort, and Jared Kushner along with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya.
Accusations have arisen that the meeting was part of a wider setup to achieve a FISA warrant to wiretap phones of the Trump campaign during 2016. President Trump himself has accused the FBI under Loretta Lynch of wiretapping his campaign.
Now, a former Trump campaign official reports that Paul Manafort’s phone was subject to FISA wiretap during the infamous meeting.
If true, this FISA warrant would have been carried out under Loretta Lynch, Attorney General to Barack Obama. Former FBI Director James Comey has testified under oath to instances of collusion between AG Lynch and the Clinton campaign during 2016, as well as obstruction of justice in the Clinton investigation.
Yesterday, multiple news agencies and President Trump all stated that Veselnitskaya was granted special permission to enter the US by Attorney General Lynch after her visa had been initially blocked.
FISA transcripts of the meeting in June 2016 may have also served the basis of the FBI’s investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, now headed by Bob Mueller.
Other senior members of the Trump campaign may have participated in the meeting via conference call.

Veselnitskaya represents Russian orphans and went to the meeting to address Russian adoptions and the Magnitsky Act.“I never had any damaging or sensitive information about Hillary Clinton.

Today marks the day Seth Rich was killed in relation to releasing documents and emails from the DNC party that has now been blamed on Russia by the DNC, there media, and the deep star. The evidence however remains hidden because the DNC still refuses to turn the server over to US authorities to actually been investigated . The entire Russia story is based on the evidence that has never been seen by the actual intelligence organizations of the USA who claim "Russia did it!"
As a bit of a primer, it's important to understand that although US intelligence agencies have stated that Russia hacked the DNC's emails, they have been wrong about hacking attribution before. Most recently, the FBI claimed North Korea hacked Sony a couple of years ago, but it turned out to have been just a disgruntled insider. http://archive.is/lpTzU. Hacking attribution is notoriously difficult. Quoting Mark McArdle, CTO at cyber security firm eSentire, "While CrowdStrike’s reported evidence and observations seem like a reasonable conclusion to reach, we cannot dismiss the fact that none of this evidence is 100% reliable." This is because "[the hackers] have invested significant time and resources masking their identity prior to the operation’s start. They employ basic precautions like making sure their tools never communicate with a server based in the country where the attack originated. Instead, they’ll make the communication appear to originate from another nation and buy domain names in different countries."
