WARNING: ACTIVE ARBITRATION REMEDIES
The article Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections, along with other pages perceived at the discretion of an administrator to have a high potential for continuous disruption and which relate to topic of post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people, is currently subject to discretionary sanctions authorized by active arbitration remedies (see WP:ARBAPDS). The current restrictions are:
Consensus required: All editors must obtain consensus on the talk page of this article before reinstating any edits that have been challenged (via reversion). This includes making edits similar to the ones that have been challenged. If in doubt, don't make the edit.
Limit of one revert in 24 hours: This article is under WP:1RR (one revert per editor per article per 24-hour period).
Civility restriction: Users are required to follow proper decorum during discussions and edits. Users may be sanctioned (including blocks) if they make any edits which are judged by an administrator to be uncivil, personal attacks, or assumptions of bad faith.
This article and its editors are subject to Wikipedia's general sanctions: All edits about, and all pages related to post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people, are placed under discretionary sanctions. Any uninvolved administrator may levy restrictions as an arbitration enforcement action on users editing in this topic area, after an initial warning.
An administrator has applied the restriction above to this article. This is pursuant to an arbitration decision which authorized discretionary sanctions for all edits about, and all pages related to post-1932 politics of the United States and closely related people. If you breach the restriction on this page, you may be blocked or otherwise sanctioned. Please edit carefully.
Editors who violate these restrictions may be blocked without warning by any uninvolved administrator, even on a first offense.
With respect to the WP:1RR restriction:
Edits made solely to enforce any clearly established consensus are exempt from all edit-warring restrictions. In order to be considered "clearly established" the consensus must be proven by prior talk-page discussion.
Edits made which remove or otherwise change any material placed by clearly established consensus, without first obtaining consensus to do so, may be treated in the same manner as clear vandalism.
Clear vandalism of any origin may be reverted without restriction.
Reverts of edits made by anonymous (IP) editors that are not vandalism are exempt from the 1RR but are subject to the usual rules on edit warring. If you are in doubt, contact an administrator for assistance.

This article seems biased, I for one do not believe in this being legitimate and many others don't either, however, I appreciate the information commonly believed put into an article. I have no problem with that, but even some of the most minor and controversial are stated very strongly as facts, with no indication of controversy. It doesn't help that there is no controversy section to point out, so to the unknowledgeable reader it appears to be completely agreed upon facts rather than controversy. If one of these or something similar can be instated — leaving the article as it is but still acknowledging the controversies — this would be a lot more accurate and unbiased representation of the topic.

Didn't take reading past the first sentence to read bias here. The way it is laid out suggests these conclusions to be written in stone and there is a sizeable community that does not concur with that assumption. Please correct to reflect neutrality!
This article reads like a DNC talking point paper. Not a single American has been convicted of collusion with the Russians and yet the article states as FACT it took place. Another example is the only references to David Nunes are colored to support Russian collusion which couldn't be further from his position. Also why is Crossfire Hurricane linking to this article?!? I'm going to try adding a link the The Nation's article on the technical details of the DNC hack that gives evidence to it being a leak not a hack and see how it goes.

That Nation bit has been considered and rejected. You can search the talk page archives to see the discussion. SPECIFICOtalk 01:50, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
No, I prefer to live in the real world where dissent is still seen as a useful path to ferreting out the truth. This page is yours. Have a nice life.User:Tvillars (talk) 02:56, 21 May 2018 (UTC)
Not all dissent is good decent. It's important not to fall into the trap of false equivalence. If anyone feels this article is biased, they should make a case for the specific sections based on language and sources used. Azuefeldt (talk) 07:04, 29 May 2018 (UTC)
This article is entirely biased IMHO to damage donald trump's reputation. Like he said. There is no evidence of him in cahoots with the Soviets and that this whole thing is just a witch hunt! --Zgrillo2004 (talk) 05:09, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
You are 100% right that there is no evidence of Trump in cahoots with the Soviets!Volunteer Marek (talk) 05:11, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
At least we can agree the USSR had nothing to do with the election! PackMecEng (talk) 12:58, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
Heh I actually call Russia the Soviet Union always. In fact I think Putin is trying to bring that nation back to its USSR routes. Soviet Union = Russia. Regardless, Russia/Soviet Union didnt interfere on anything. its just something that the democraps came up with to try and undermine him.--Zgrillo2004 (talk) 17:51, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
