Trump Obsessed With the Russia Probe

Gosh, really? It's not like we haven't seen tons of evidence already that all Trump does is talk about Russia, talk with Russians, and go out of his way to say nice things about Russia while his companies do business with Russia:

Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, told House investigators Thursday that President Trump seemed obsessed with the Russia probe and repeatedly asked him to say publicly there was no evidence of collusion, a U.S. official familiar with the conversation told NBC News. 

Coats’ account is not new — it largely tracked with his story as previously reported by NBC News and other media outlets, the official said.

Admiral Mike Rogers, director of the NSA, has also told associates that Trump asked him to say publicly there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian election interference effort. 

Both Rogers and Coats declined to do that, saying it would have been inappropriate, a former senior intelligence official familiar with the matter told NBC News. Rogers had his deputy write a memo about the conversation.

Nothing about this is new. Trump had the Russians help him get elected president. This very fact is evident to every American. And yet, because we have Republicans in control of Congress, nothing will be done about it. The American people can't stop voting for Republicans because they want a white daddy who will spank everyone because he's moody. It's as if being sane works against you these days.
