Tarum when you use terms such as TDS you prove my point. This is a hyper-partisan issue for you. Suffice it to say, when the head of the Federal Electoral Commission, appointed by Trump, that is a no-no, it should make you think. I know it will not.

Moreover, if you have no idea how information can be valuable… I cannot help you. I will only tell you this, if this was 2008 and this was the Obama campaign that did that, your party would have howled treason, I know better since under US Law conspiracy is hard to prove, treason is even harder, on purpose. But I would have demanded that President Obama face the music. You, on the other hand, will not.

Suffice it to say, the party of national security is in the process of selling down the nation to the Russians, why? Status Anxiety. And the links from the top of the Republican leadership to Russian oligarchs are becoming clearer by the day. History will not be kind… and it is hardly just Trump. He is just a symptom.

Incidentally, it is not just Oleg Deripaska and Rusal, I guess bringing the Russian pork to Kentuky is fine, but now it is also oil money… no wonder Mitch McConnell has a few issues actually passing legislation that will stop some of the games. And you, of course, love it. History will not be kind…

Have an excellent life in whatever passes for love of country in your head.
