Yes, we’ve seen a tsunami of allegations and insinuations, with much hard work going into creating and connecting dots, all of which amounts to…? More allegations and insinuations. People are scrambling to find bits and pieces of information that, if connected in just such a way, could lead to — you got it — conclusions. Educated guesses, suppositions based on potential (if not actual) connections. Bottom line: Putin/Russia have no more and no less influence on US politics today than it has had at any time since Nixon’s detente. The more the details are requested, the more a certain faction merely doubles-down on the utterly irrational, “Russia stole the election!”
