Russians may publicly "deny it," but they privately are happy with the outcome of the 2016 election that [former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael} McFaul suggested was orchestrated by Russian President Vladimir Putin. "Why shouldn't they be proud of their operation?" he mused. "With low levels of investment, they got a big return and the punishment for it has been pretty marginal. In the wake of that, that seemed like a great victory."

Why isn't every Republican demanding to know what was said in the unprecedented secret Putin-Trump meetings?

"Why isn't every Republican demanding to know what was said in the unprecedented secret Putin-Trump meetings?"

Obviously it's because they don't want to know. To know would put them in the same traitorous position as Trump. It's much easier to run out the clock and hope Trump self-destructs. Then they can say "Who knew?" after the s--t hits the fan and before the Senate majority pays the price in 2020.

In case nobody has noticed, the Senate Republicans (including McConnell) are already starting to get a little twitchy over Trump's double-dealings.

Many are cowards and some are being paid off. All are hypocrites.

Right now, it serves Putin's and Russia's purposes to deny any Russian interference with the American 2016 election, much less any collusion, directly or indirectly, to help Trump -- Putin's admitted favorite -- to win the Electoral College.

But later on, when it suits his purposes, Putin will gain enormous prestige by openly acknowledging that Russia was able to persuade the American president to compromise himself and his campaign by accepting Russian assistance, and that Putin was able to do this because of the broken and inherently corrupt nature of the American democratic system, underscoring why Western democracy is a bad model for the rest of the world.

Trump will be recognized for the "shallow, lazy, ignoramus" (Ann Coulter) he is, and Putin will look like the wise and clever political genius that other countries should want for their own leadership.

As Australian journalist Chris Uelmann said during his assessment of Trump back in July 2017: "Some will cheer the decline of America, but I think we'll miss it when it's gone."
