Interesting photo, but the "morphing technology" seems a bit 1997.

LOL.  One poll, half of which was conducted before the press conference.  And Trump was at 44 in their previous poll.

Russiagate Is Far Wider Than Trump and His Inner Circle

It isn’t just the story of a few corrupt officials, or even a corrupt president. It’s the story of a corrupt Republican Party.

Dismal? They should be WAY lower. The fact that 40% of Americans support this Nazi and his brown shirts the Repuglicans is disappointing and depressing.

The apple doesn't fall far from the orange tree. Not making money with a casino. Trump is the biggest failure and loser out there. Who the fuck has theiur casinos go bankrupt? So much for 'good businessman' and 'good businesswomen'

The Trumps are LOSERS. Tremendous,believe me.

The businesses are money laundering operations. They will close down when they are no longer useful to the criminals. Their profit/loss figures are strictly for show. That they have been laundering money for criminals is the big story.

I agree, Trump's policy toward Russia hasn't quite been what one would expect from a paid Russian agent. My best guess is the whole Russiagate story basically goes like this...

In line with longstanding fixations, Candidate Trump wondered aloud about getting rid of NATO, and expressed admiration for President Putin.

Liking the sound of all this, and also aware that Trump had business-related interests in maintaining good ties with Russia, Putin "Who will rid me"-ed an order for Russian intelligence agencies to assist Trump in getting elected.

Russian intelligence undertook this task, Iran-Contra style, in order to leave Putin with plausible deniability.

Trump somehow figured out what the Russians were up to, and engaged in collusion ranging somewhere between "tacit encouragement" and "aborted attempts at outright conspiracy".  

After winning the election, Trump basically farmed out foreign-policy to the usual establishment characters, punctuated by occassional outbursts of his own quasi-isolationist populism.

Trump is reluctant to acknowledege Russian assistance(even if unsolicited by him) for fear of calling into question the legitimacy of his election.  

The legal outcome of all this will depend on whether or not Trump's campaign broke any laws in their collusion, not how serious or effective the collusion was.

Canada needs to do some serious soul-searching about disconnecting ourselves as best we can from our Southern neighbours.
