A Word About Collusion
It is a relief to know that there was not evidence that the President of the United States acted knowingly with the Russians to undermine our election process. It is a relief that we are spared the immediate need for Impeachment to try the president for treason.
Those findings do not negate what we do know, that Trump welcomed the interference, encouraged it, and was gleeful over the resulting attacks on his opponent, Hillary Clinton, all the while denying that it was the Russians that helped him win.
The findings also do not negate the facts we know that prove Trump is a liar and a cheat with tendencies to white supremacy. We know he surrounded himself with liars and cheats and crooks, because that is who he is too. Birds of a feather.
Many will want this all to go away now. It won't. There will be vicious attacks on the media, and on the "sore losers" in Congress who continue their investigations. There will be recriminations and revenge seeking on the part of the president's supporters. There will be more narcissistic bloviating.
It isn't over. The fat lady hasn't sung yet. We can only hope that the final act begins with the election in 2020.
