It is a sad day, even though there is stuff to be hopeful about. In her attempt to prove she did nothing wrong, Susan Rice has created a logic trap- all this 'legal' surveillance must have proved no Russian involvement in the American elections. In other words, she found nothing, so all these stupid investigations need to stop now.
If she had found something, she would have used the government to prosecute someone, somewhere in the hopes of destroying Trump's campaign.
So, it would be great if some people in D.C. could connect a few dots and start to take this anti-Russia stuff down. Now. Because, due to this bullshit propaganda, Trump isn't listening to Russia, indeed, he appears to be distancing himself from them.
To the best of my knowledge, the Syrian government has not used chemical weapons on its people. The first supposed attack was investigated, and it was found not to even be something the Syrian government had. The Syrian government voluntarily gave up what it did have, after John Kerry sort of offhandedly mentioned something about it- both the Syrians and the Russians jumped at the chance to calm America down. I suspect this frustrated whoever was orchestrating this nonsense, so they tried again.
And Trump took the bait. This is bad.
Now, he can say he was scammed along with everybody else, but how do we get from here to there?
Perhaps it is through Rice.
