    They will never see reality. It's all a witch hunt remember? The worst ever in the history of politics!

    After the past 8 years, it's understandable that Republicans would assume that all scandals are fake.

    This one isn't.

    Why does jr. confirm this after it comes out? He's had every opportunity to get it out and yet? Transparent my ass.

    We've come a long way in a relatively short time. The original story was that the Trump campaign had no contact with Russian agents or operatives -- none. The next version was that some people working for the Trump campaign might have incidentally had contact with some Russians who may or may not have been associated with the Kremlin's efforts to affect the outcome of our presidential election, but there was no collusion. Now we have concrete evidence of Russia offering to assist the Trump campaign by providing opposition research, and we have a confession that top officials with the Trump campaign arranged to accept this offer and meet with the Russian operatives.

    And so, we now have the Trump campaign admitting that they did indeed collude with the Russians, but so what? Everybody does it.

    If everybody does it, then why did they lie so much for so long?

    Kushner's attempt to establish a secure line of communications with the Kremlin via the Russian embassy makes far more sense -- now that we know that the Trump campaign was, indeed colluding with the Russians to affect the outcome of our election. Slowly but surely, the pieces of this puzzle are coming together.

    All this makes me wonder how many other meetings were there? I mean this one while big is fairly minor. I would bet there were many more meetings that even Pres Trump attended. How long are they going to drip this info out?

    I wonder who it is that's dripping the info, though? Is it one source or several sources who each have a piece or a few pieces of the puzzle?
