It’s starting to look like Trump and his ilk were far more deeply entangled with Russia than just the Michael Flynn fiasco. Now, to be fair, that’s something we’ve already kind of known for awhile, but in the wake of Flynn’s exposure the evidence against Trump being cozy with Russia and Russian intelligence before the election even is starting to stack up.
For those just tuning in or waking up and realizing that they made a massive mistake voting for Trump, Russia carried out cyber attacks related to the election. These attacks were targeted against Hillary Clinton and the DNC. As a part of the investigation into these attacks investigators are finding contact between Trump associates and Russian intelligence. During the campaign. Before the election. It is entirely possible that Trump’s people may have participated and colluded with the Russians in an attempt to influence the election. It’s also possible that it’s all a really messed up coincidence, but at any distance this is bad. Russia is not an American friend. I grew up at the end of the Cold War. I had a college friend who had horror stories about growing up in the USSR. If Trump is playing in Russian interests he’s not working towards ours. And he’s the President. Our interests are all he should care about.
It will be interesting to see how this house of cards falls.
