The Russians have been openly practicing Kompromot for a while now. It's not news to me. I do question how much they actually had an effect on anything though.

If they put somebody in power that they knew was going to stir up racial tensions then it plays a huge part. And even sadder is how easy it was to tear people apart regardless of how much Russia had to do with it.

I meant how large of a role they played in getting Trump elected. They made efforts for sure, but I think the onus is more on social media and curated content than a specific foreign interest.

The problem with your reasoning is that if you look at certain people in Clinton's camp (like the Podesta brothers for instance) there were ties to Kremlin-related institutions too. Super obvious ones. Ties that include things like "money" and "property". The collusion narrative could have fit either camp if you wanted to dig enough...the Democrats were just smarter about who they talked to and how they handled their audit trail. Compared to the team Clinton assembled around her, Trump's campaign was a sloppier affair in every way you can think of.

Russia had no way of knowing who was going to win the election, and all the public data available up until almost the night-of said election pointed to Hillary winning in a landslide in both the popular vote and Electoral College. Anyone who thinks they were savvy enough to hack Trump into office despite the overwhelming media coverage predicting Hillary's win is naive.

I think the important part is to what degree there was/has been collusion

which my guess is actually not very much

I didn't even get to Ana's part yet. He goes off on so many unnecessary tangents. I ended up just stopping the video.
