    Why didn't the administration in power retaliate?

    There are plenty of potential reasons. There was no sufficient knowledge at the time perhaps. They knew Russians were trying but they did not know the extent or how successful they might be perhaps. Or perhaps they figured Hillary would win despite the attempts?

    Or, did they not give a ****, until Clinton didn't turn out to be president?

    My theory: they didn't believe Clinton could lose and if they were wrong, they could create the brew-ha-ha we have now to undermine President Trump.

    Pretty dick move. Wouldn't you agree?

    Does not matter who initiated investigation of suspicious activity (originally Republicans did). What matters is

    1. whether they attacked us (we know they did, we don't know all the details)

    2. how successful was the attack (how many vote counts did they change directly? how many people got affected by fake news? etc.). This is not known so far and may never be known.

    3. whether Trump committed treason / colluded with them (looks more and more likely)

    Would you stick to that point if it's proven that Russians changed the critical vote counts? Does "playing the game better" include getting help from another nation to change votes that benefit you? Maybe so...

    Are you saying that he directed Manafort to share the polling data with Russian Intelligence?

    No, I would not agree. Trump is being investigated thanks only to his own actions. He made his bed.

    The investigation started before the election. That's what Peter Strzok meant by an "insurance policy".

    Yes, so what? I repeat: Trump is being investigated thanks only to his own actions. He made his bed.
