It is imperative that Russian involvement in the 2016 presidential election be investigated thoroughly by the FBI, the Senate Intelligence Committee and the House Intelligence Committee.

The reason is not to discredit the results of the 2016 election, but rather to ensure that all future elections are accurate, fair and free from any tampering or influence by a foreign power. These investigations also should not be obfuscated by deflection or diversionary tactics.

No other presidential candidate has ever mentioned a Russian president so many times in any campaign as Donald Trump. What were his reasons for doing so? Why was/is he so enamored with Putin? Answers to these questions are important.

Aside from the concerns above, these investigations must ensure that all future elections are free from any foreign influence. Although it probably didn’t happen in the 2016 election, the next time, it could involve hacking into the voting machines. The integrity of the electoral process cannot be compromised.
