Another Empty “Bombshell” Russiagate Story
Caitlin Johnstone

Caitlin, I appreciate your work. While I agree that this particular episode does not connect to “Russiagate” as a collusion enterprise, it is another damning example of the kinds of crappy humans Trump surrounds himself with. Manafort and Flynn can not be written off as passing acquaintances. Trump continually exhibits horrible judgement, especially when it comes to other people. And since he literally knows NOTHING about policy, we are left to depend on his choices of advisors. That is what scares me the most.

“Lefties” should be focused on the judges he is nominating, the tax bill abominations being passed, and the reduction in America’s standing and influence in the world. Russiagate is a distraction — though the attempts to cover it up may be worse than than the distraction itself…
