The real crime: Collusion between media, leakers

Pat Buchanan on release of stolen secrets: 'Trump is facing a stacked deck'

For a year, the big question of Russiagate has boiled down to this: Did Donald Trump’s campaign collude with the Russians in hacking the DNC?

And until last week, the answer was “no.”

As ex-CIA director Mike Morell said in March, “On the question of the Trump campaign conspiring with the Russians … there is smoke, but there is no fire, at all. … There’s no little campfire, there’s no little candle, there’s no spark.”

Well, last week, it appeared there had been a fire in Trump Tower. On June 9, 2016, Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner and Paul Manafort met with Russians – in anticipation of promised dirt on Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

While not a crime, this was a blunder. For Donald Jr. had long insisted there had been no collusion with the Russians. Caught in flagrante, he went full Pinocchio for four days.

Ho Hum. Russians are NOT an enemy! Are the astronauts on the ISS "colluding" with each other up there, or just when we hitchhike a ride there on the Soyuz?

We haven't been "enemies" in decades!

So what they met with a Russian lawyer that had dirt on clinton? Isn't that how elections are done? I'm so tired of hearing about this bs story. Ridiculous
