This blog has been silent since the day after the 2016 election. Frankly, I was stunned at the outcome. I am not the only one. I have watched over the past fifteen months as my country dives deeper and deeper into disrepair. The damage Mr. Trump has inflicted on the office of the Presidency is incalculable. It may take generations to repair the damage assuming it can even be repaired.
We've all watched the slow train known as the Mueller investigation rolling down the track and Trump's refusal to even acknowledge Russia's involvement in the 2016 campaign. Now, however as the train begins to pick up speed The White House has finally admitted that Russia did meddle in the election but clearly it had no impact on the outcome. Really?
I guess what they (the White House staff) would have you believe is that the Russians are incompetent. Clearly they meddled in our election but clearly it had no impact. And if you believe that, you must also believe in the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny and Santa Clause. If I were Russian, I would be a bit miffed that you think we spent all that effort and all that money and got nothing for our trouble. Sorry to inform you but we got exactly what we came for.
Now I can't categorically state that the Trump campaign was in on the "fix" but they were certainly the beneficiary of what ever happened. I trust that Mr. Mueller will uncover the truth of the matter but at the moment, it seems all roads lead to the Trump campaign. If indeed the Mueller investigation concludes that the Trump campaign colluded with a foreign government to throw a US election, that revelation would send shock waves through this government and anyone who defended this administration should be barred from ever serving in elected office ever again. In truth, they should go to prison for aiding and abetting treason but the current political climate would never allow that to happen.
