(PART I)

What we know from the email Donald Trump Jr released is that the campaign was open to working with the russians to defeat Clinton and that the russians knew that to be true.

Does anyone really think that the Don Jr meeting was the last contact? Is anyone not bothered by this?

Meddling in another country's elections is nothing new.  The idea of Putin trying to manipulate our electorate and undermine our democracy (and, thus, creating a schism between the US and NATO/EU) is also nothing new.  We all know that this is his goal.  What IS new and is particularly disturbing is the fact that AMERICAN CITIZENS are the ones making Putin's dreams come true!  And what is bewildering is that Trump's "base" doesn't care.

There are Russian monsters in our swamp.

Now we know why Trump won't release his tax returns.  Too much Russian money sloshing around.

I think there are a lot of Congresspeople bothered by this.  I'd bet Robert Muller is, too.  He keeps adding attorneys to his cadre.  So does Trump.

Look at the Russian attempt to meddle in the French election,  2 days before the election they dumped hacked French emails to influence the election, what they didn't realize in France there is a news blackout for 48 hours prior to the voting no one New about it till the voting was over.  If you look at the pattern of the hacks against they were extremely well targeted hitting key election sites.  It appears to me that there was some input from a American source.

I'm waiting for Don Jr. to fess up that his favorite cartoon as a kid was the Bullwinkle show.  With Boris Badenov.....

Generally, "metaling" means you came in First, Second or Third.   Perhaps you meant meddled  8)

What evidence do you have of that?

But the real question would be this:  Did Netanyhu's opponents, with the assistance of other Israeli citizens, collude with the Obama Administration?  The United States isn't a "hostile" nation in the way Russia is to the USA.

"Meddling" is not the same as COLLUSION.  Neither are honorable, but COLLUSION invites the accusation of treason.  COLLUSION implies the fact that American citizens were involved in undermining American democracy.  THAT's the horror of it.
