there is blame to be borne by Democrats for fostering such a blinkered, warped domestic political climate, whereby Trump exhibiting his sufficiently-hostile attitude toward Russia was taken to be the savvy and expedient thing for him to do.
Trump Is To Blame For The Syria Strikes — But So Are Democrats

Wrong on two counts:

  1. Sufficient cause for investigations into Russia ties (that’s the FBI and USIC) is behind Congress’s probes. That’s a matter of due diligence. Absolutely must be done.
  2. You imply that an act of war is the only way Trump could distance himself from Russia. That is not the case. I don’t need to enumerate, but there were and still are many ways Trump can distance himself from Putin w/out engaging the military.
