Re: Election Security Official says Russia trying to help trump.

Welcome to international relations. There is a long list of countries that have had their elections influenced and even controlled by the United States. Shouldn't surprise us that other nations play the same games that we do.

Re: Trump acquitted

Trump was just acquitted, his approval rating is the highest it has ever been (and several points higher than Obama's approval rating at this point in his first term), and the Democrats are in crisis mode after Iowa and the SOTU. Seems like he is cruising towards reelection at this point.
