3Qs: US, Russia, and the 2016 presidential election

Russia this week played a leading role in the con­ver­sa­tion about the U.S. pres­i­den­tial race, from its alleged role in hacking Demo­c­ratic National Com­mittee emails to Donald Trump’s com­ments that he hoped the country had suc­cess­fully hacked Hillary Clinton’s email.
