One question, even IF the Russians interfered with the 2006 election, who was president and SoS at the time of this intrusion? Weren't those the folks responsible for the integrity of that election? What did they do to secure it's integrity?

Well, they were confident that their side would win, and that's the only thing that matters, it's even the definition of an honest election. One they win is inherently honest, one they lose was obviously interfered with in some improper fashion.

And secondly, the presumed primary source of outside interference was Russia, and Russia was known to be cooperating with the Clinton campaign to fabricate charges against Trump. Which is consistent with every known incentive for them to interfere on one side or the other. So Russian interference was increasing their chance of winning - in other words, of the election have an honest outcome.

Now why would they lift a finger to stop Russian interference?
