The Traitorous Trump and his GOP Comrades
Cheri Jacobus at USA Today tying in the GOP attempts to undermine the Russia investigation, sanctions on Russia and more:
While the U.S. intelligence community has confirmed Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, Trump stands alone in his denial of the breach and in his defense of Putin. CIA Director Mike Pompeo unequivocally asserts Russia will interfere in the congressional midterm elections later this year.
The Trump White House and congressional Republicans seem unconcerned, or perhaps even copacetic with the intervention that will yield results in their favor. [...]
Putin’s KGB-inspired maneuvering of the United States via Donald Trump and the Republican Congress has all the earmarks of a carefully planned, professionally executed war game in which Trump, congressional Republicans and some in right wing media are his comrades.
But it’s not a game. The United States is in trouble.
