The long and winding road towards the 2016 U.S. Presidential election is poised to come to a merciful end this week. In turn, it won’t be long before we can finally close the books on what has unquestionably been the most outrageous, entertaining, depressing and downright confounding U.S. election in recent memory, and perhaps of all-time.
With just a few days before most Americans get out and vote, the drama surrounding this year’s election shows no sign of dying down. Over the weekend, U.S. intelligence sources told NBC that a number of government security agencies are ready to detect, defend against, and if need be, fight back against any Russian attempts to impact this week’s election. Now in any other year, this story might appear to be utter nonsense, but it’s really just par for the course for this current election cycle where sensationalist stories have become the norm.
