Russia intervened in the 2016 election to hurt Clinton and help Trump
What, specifically, did the ruskies do?
Suggest a reading of vol. 1 of the Mueller's (redacted) report or at least the summary if there is a true interest, which I feel quite certain there isn't.
I personally believe Russia and Putin wanted to interfere in our election to cause the chaos and division we have seen over the last 3 years dividing our nation.
This is what the Mueller report says was the original purpose of Russian Interference. At some point it changed from general discord and became directed at defeating Clinton and to support Trump. But it seems to me they believed Trump would be the chaos, divisive President they wanted, plus Putin hates Clinton. Basically they used two methods Social media and hacking with a systematic, well timed release of hacked emails through Wiki Leaks. The report summary I linked is a pretty short read.

This is done all the time.
To date the government of Trump has done little to stop future foreign interference in our elections. Why?
I don’t see Pelosi queuing up legislation to ban foreign money from USA elections
The truth is no one can ever know the extent of effectiveness (or lack there of) Russian interference.
But Trump is nothing if not divisive, you are either with him or against him, it's all personal,
Remember when Obama was trying to influence the Brexit vote. “The UK is going to be in the back of the queue.”
