How on earth did you get to the point of defending Russia?

So why are you backing the Russians?

 

What do you mean?  exactly?  if you mean do I buy into this 'US vs Russia' paradigm then I do not.

The words 'treason' and 'treacherous' have been carelessly thrown around a lot lately, and most of the time reading that made me wince.  

 

Not any longer.  There is a 21st century war going on right now.  Cyber-warfare continues and misinformation parasites are popping up faster than Twitter can shut them down.  Russian bots are actively trying to breed mistrust among Americans and pit them against each other.  They are weaving a web of lies, driving a wedge between the people and science, causing people to reject scientific advancements and technology.

 

That makes it personal for me.

 

Now we have Trump who, when asked about election interference, responds about Hillary's e-mails.  Being as charitable as I possibly can, that means by the time the questioner got to the end of his sentence, Trump couldn't remember what the question was and so he just meandered into his favorite anti-Hillary screed.

 

A less charitable analysis brings us into the uncomfortable realm of treason.

 

Trump has been advised by his own people - people he himself appointed... "the very best" people, according to Trump - about what Russia is doing.  Trump rejects his sworn allegiance to his own advisers and to his own country, and gives aid and comfort to an adversarial despot... a former KGB agent.

 

Putin now has Trump, and by extension congressional republicans, in his pocket.

 

Did you read Rosenstein's statement?

 

"We follow the rule of law, which means that we follow procedures and reserve judgment. We complete our investigations and we evaluate all of the evidence before we reach any conclusion."

and

"There is no allegation in this indictment that any American citizen committed a crime. There is no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result."
