It seems to me that would be a good way to start since at this point no one can produce concrete evidence that the Russians were behind the actual hack, maybe yes maybe no...maybe it was inserted into the whole thing for some unknown reason but the evidence of trump and crew involvement with Russian oligarchs/mobsters conspiracy is overwhelming and I would like to stick to that aspect of it if possible.

Russia hacked the election. That right there is the narrative.
Yes, It's clear that Russian businessmen and Russian banks and companies have dealings with Trump or his associates. But ditto for America, China, Germany, Ukraine, and a handful of other countries. The connection is Trump, money, and corruption. Without the lurid hacking angle then its just another tale of Trump getting his hands dirty.
The 'hacking' is where it all started and is absolutely central to any meta analysis.

Tillerson's company was a client of three insiders who suggested he be chosen to lead the Department of State

When President-elect Donald Trump selected Rex Tillerson to be his secretary of state, he consulted members of the Republican Party elite who have done business with ExxonMobil in the past.
Condoleezza Rice, Robert Gates, and Stephen Hadley were all instrumental in convincing Trump to choose Tillerson

This suggests a deep critique of the U.S., NATO, the Israeli State and those most closely aligned with this power bloc but also the governments of Russia, Iran, Syria etc. as representing competing elites far, far more than the working class Multitude.

The data dumps are a fantastic resource but the only thread that I am aware of which is somewhat meta is still allied with the opinion that more or less the entirety of Russian involvement in our current miasma is a useful fiction.
