no, it isn't.  But it has progressed from a previous Trump theory that it could have been some pimply faced fat kid in a room in middle america who was messing with the election to an admission that the russkies did prefer Trump and did make some effort to ensure his election.  I seem to recall Trump fairly strongly saying the russkies did not prefer him over Shillary.  He hasn't said it lately, though.


Trump says a lot of things. I didn't vote for him then and probably won't in the future if he runs again.

Greg was mocking anyone who would claim there was no"collusion" after reading this thread. That makes no sense.

No collusion, got it.


You got it wrong if you think that's what I said. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if it was proven Trump had underhanded or even illegal dealings with the Russians or anyone else.

But this is not evidence for it. Greg's assertion is nonsensical.

My take on what has been revealed so far is that the Russians may have meddled in our election as we have meddled in those of other countries. The Democrats have gone insane in their response to this. A certain amount of outrage is expected. They've lost touch with reality.

It seems pretty clear that the Putrid despises Hillary, so it makes sense. In that respect, Putrid and I have a lot in common.

Yes. We do it a lot.

I agree.  No collusion between Trump and Russia has been proven.  Even if collusion between his campaign and Russia can be proven, that won't prove Trump knew or approved of it, either. 

I believe an offer of collusion was made by the Russkies.  I believe it may have been followed up on by some in the campaign.  Whether it ultimately resulted in collusion occurring is a subject of Mueller's investigation.  Not the only subject, but a subject.  If there was collusion, even the biggest clown in the Trump campaign would have known it needed to be hidden from sight as much as possible.  It sometimes takes a lot of time to get to the bottom of things.

Frankly, I am not sure that proving collusion really makes a whole lot of difference at this point.  It's not like a murder was committed.  That a foreign government would prefer one presidential candidate over another is not surprising, and it's not surprising that a foreign government would take steps to help its preferred candidate.  I doubt seriously that even if collusion occurred, it cost Hillary the electoral vote. 

But the investigation sure is fun to watch.
