There is Russian interference in the 2020 election, likely not at the scale of 2016, since they’ve garnered numerous financial and political advantages from their many Congressional puppets.

So many hoaxes, so much evidence. Money transfers, middle-men. The issue is less about the bounty since it likely is SOP, but more that Trump has denied it.
