Every day, we get more and more evidence implicating Putin’s Puppet and his deplorable minions in criminal collusion with a foreign power. Most recently, we learned that there were repeated contacts between senior members of the Trump campaign and Russian Intelligence Officers at the same time that Russian Intelligence was interfering with the US election to help Trump usurp the Residency. But will we see justice?
Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.
American law enforcement and intelligence agencies intercepted the communications around the same time they were discovering evidence that Russia was trying to disrupt the presidential election by hacking into the Democratic National Committee, three of the officials said. The intelligence agencies then sought to learn whether the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians on the hacking or other efforts to influence the election.

Even as this news came in, Rachael Maddow was already wondering about justice for Republican crimes. Here are three clips from her show. In the first she delves into the litany of questions the Reich had generated, and how partisan loyalty (IOKIYAR) is interfering with investigations.
In the second, she relays the news she had just learned.
In the third, she interviews Adam Schiff, top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, about the possibility of getting an impartial investigation into the Fuhrer and his Russian Reich.
In short, the chances of that happening are between slim and nil.
Our best bet is to keep raising such a stink that it provokes a public outcry sufficient to make enough Republicans fear for their jobs to throw the Fuhrer under the bus.
