I just used the word "Influence" and a quick search shows half a million news stories that do as well. The US interfering in other countries' elections is not in question so there's no reason to talk about it.

What Russia did was slowly release information in a way to make things look bad for the Clinton campaign and turn off Clinton voters in order to tip the election. Whether or not you agree that it's a fair argument makes no difference to the intent or effect.

If the House investigations had found any credible wrong doings, they would have published it and taken action. Instead, the worst they could say was "The State Department didn't tell us the truth for a couple days". Imagine if Trump were held to the same standards on the truth by his followers!

Usually it's the right that brings up the pointless social issues. Maybe you get your news from different sources, but I see plenty of coverage on murders. The average American isn't a Nazi, but the new far right news sources are there to appeal to Nazis. Even Fox humors some of the stories that come out of the crazy-mills like Breitbart

I see you're using the alt-right interpretation of "Fake News" where anyathing that goes against your god-emperor is "Fake".

The FBI confirmed an investigation - he hasn't confirmed the exact people (neither did the headline). It's pretty clear the investigation involves the Trump campaign.

The Republicans on the other hand, HAVE spent a lot more time examining the circumstances in which the information was disclosed even though it's unrelated to investigation.

I don't believe anyone is suggesting that actual votes were changed (as in voting machine hacked or something), the accusation is that Russia influenced the election through the slow release of hacked emails and spreading anti-Clinton propaganda. The "Russia changed votes" theory is just a straw-man.

The Benghazi hearings were proven to be a political charade anyways where even after months of investigations the Republicans couldn't find any wrong-doings.

But speaking of asking questions unrelated issues, you should listen to some of the Republicans asking questions. They're more concerned with whether the freedom of press applies to news organizations publishing classified leaks than the actual issue of Russian meddling with the election.

Yes, people provide their fingerprints because it provides an easy way to secure your device against the average person that might try to break in while still being quick and convenient to unlock. They aren't doing it because they love providing their personal data to a large corporation. If giving Google DNA led to some other convenience, you can be sure that people (Google's primary customers) would be doing that too.
