This report indicating links between the Trump camp and Russian operatives in Grizzly Steppe is the beginning of the end for Mr. Trump. The indications were all there — Pelosi’s shock, Reid’s anger, the trips to Russia by Trump operatives during the election. We suspected and doubted Trump. We knew there was a fix in somewhere.

With this airing of intelligence, there now has to be a full-blown investigation. And as for the inauguration — we’ll see.

The president-elect is compromised (ie, conflicted in advance). He is a national security risk.

And there appears to have been co-operation between Trump operatives and Russian operatives.

It is no wonder that Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan did not want independent hearings on the election. They hoped this information could be contained — at least until Trump was full steam ahead in his presidency.
