Of course there is the fact that all of the US intelligence agencies agree that the Russians interfered in the 2016 election.
The same ones that insisted there were WMDs in Iraq?
All the more reason to believe them now. They would not want to suffer the embarrassment of getting it wrong twice.
And there's also the mountain of evidence found by Facebook, Twitter and others in the private sector, several European intelligence agencies, with concurrence by a number of other US lawmakers, Republican and Democrat.

I also have to wonder what benefit there is in bristling at the idea that Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 US election. Surely it's better to err on the side of defending democracy?
It depends enormously on what they actually tried to do. Buy ads on social media? It's pretty hard for the Americans to complain about that. Hack into voting machines and change the results? Okay, that's an act of war.
Frankly I'm mostly ambivalent about the ads but there are laws in America that could be interpreted to say that's illegal.
Interesting view

This is the best synopsis on video that I have seen:

The video will not play unless you go to Facebook and let Mark Zuckerberg know everything you have ever done.

However let me save everyone all the trouble of doing that only to listen to Schiffty

Obama COLLUDED with THE FBI, THE CIA, HILLARY, AND THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP TO OVER THROW THE US GOVERNMENT.

"We assess Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an influence campaign in 2016 aimed at the US presidential election. Russia’s goals were to undermine public faith in the US democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency. We further assess Putin and the Russian Government developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump."

Well 20 indictments later the idea that Russian interference was "a hoax" should be put to bed, excluding the Alex Jones wackjobs.
Nope, still a hoax.

The US Department of Justice has charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking Democratic officials in the 2016 US elections.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the dozen accused used spear phishing emails and malicious software.

He said the hackers also stole data on half a million voters from a state election board website.

The 11-count indictment names the Russians defendants, alleging they began cyber-attacks in March 2016 on the email accounts of staff for Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.

Mr Rosenstein said the defendants corresponded with several Americans during the alleged conspiracy, but added there is no allegation that any US citizen committed a crime.

The deputy attorney general said the conspirators used fictitious online personas, including "DCLeaks" and "Guccifer 2.0", to release thousands of stolen emails beginning in June 2016.

They also plotted to hack into the computers of state boards of elections, secretaries of state, and voter software, according to the indictment.

Mr Rosenstein said: "We know that the goal of the conspirators was to have an impact on the election."

The deputy attorney general said all 12 defendants were in the Russian intelligence service, the GRU.

Untouchable. They will never be brought to trial in the US.

Yep. The Russians have been doing it for years. During the Cold War, they sided with Leftist parties not just in the US but also in Europe. They were ideologically closer. For example, the ACLU was founded by Commies encouraged by Moscow.

True. But now they can't go there or anywhere with extradition arrangements with the US.

It probably won't bother them Milo. By now they would probably have been well rewarded.
