    Because you brought up conspiracy theory sites, and I know that was addressed in the article.

    My personal conspiracy is that the GOP was hacked as well, and a significant number of them are being blackmailed, paid or both to do Russia's will.

    There are so many conspiracy theories out there its hard to keep track. I even saw one this weekend that claimed McCain picked Palin to ensure he would lose so Pres Obama would win to get the ball rolling on "fake news stories" and birther issues to keep Americans questioning the news and truth. Facebook and social media was being used more commonly for news and they planned to begin their "bot program." They wanted voters to become suspicious and mistrustful so the current narrative would work.

    Mueller and Comey Russian ties? That's new to me. Exactly what are conspiracy theories?

    accessory after the fact is an understatement. Trump is engaging in blatant self-incriminating behavior in plain view of the entire world. His inclination to favor the word of Putin over his own intelligence community may as well be a outright admission of guilt.

    Not quite sure its origins but basically this all began way back in the 90s, the idea of weakening the West and getting voters to mistrust media and various institutions. Supposedly the Bush family had some involvement and has something to do with GW rushing the US into war with Iraq and Afghanistan. Not clear on the Comey/Mueller connection other than they are close with the Bush's. I guess if we say Comey definitely had something to do with the 2016 outcome then he is somehow complicit as well. Especially since his announcement of HRC right before the election broke protocol. Also the FBI keep the fact quiet that Trump campaign was also under some scrutiny but it was a well kept secret.

    So let me get this straight: this theory is that Trump has been a Russian asset since the 1987 but the Russians needed to talk to George Papadopoulos in 2016 to get an in with the campaign?

    This theory is embarrassingly stupid.

    But that all helped Trump and the Russians.
