Russiagate is like a mirage. It looks so real from a distance you'll swear it's there and mock anyone who says otherwise, but once you get up close and examine its component parts you find it's made of nothing but innuendo, spin, unsubstantiated claims and dishonest omissions.

I'm not making any claims, I'm pointing to the lack of support for the claims your side makes.

Ah! *THAT* explains why Trump acts so nonchalantly about it. I mean, if he was guilty, you’d think he’d go on the attack and try to discredit it, or something...

That's a silly argument. It's clearly politically damaging to him. Why wouldn't he hate it?

It would be weird if there weren't contacts with Russians. Talking to people in other countries is normal. The hysterical McCarthyite feeding frenzy alone could explain the coverup. You have no idea what evidence any of the western empire's intelligence agencies have.

That's literally what we're doing now. Burden of proof is on you though, since it's your side making the claims. Go.

"Great" is not a word I'd use to something which pressures a US president to continually escalate tensions with a nuclear superpower without ever backing down.

If he was innocent he’d welcome the exoneration.

The entire Dem-aligned media machine is implying that he's a Kremlin asset every single day. It's silly to claim any politician would play along with that, let alone an egotist like Trump.

Nothing wrong with wanting a full investigation. There's something very, very wrong with pressuring a US president to continually escalate dangerous cold war tensions with a nuclear superpower without ever backing down based on an "idea" with no evidence.

Okay, all media then. That hurts your claim, it doesn't help it.

Caitlin, is your position that Donald is indeed a money launderer but that Russia played no part in helping him win the election?

I have no position on either of those things. I just dismiss claims that are made without evidence and think it's stupid to pressure a US president to continually escalate tensions with a nuclear superpower. Trump is corrupt in many ways and money laundering wouldn't surprise me.

You only think Trump is "capitulating" because Rachel Maddow hasn't covered his relentless horrifying escalations against Russia, including a dangerous new Nuclear Posture Review which places Russia in the crosshairs, arming Ukraine, expanding NATO, repeatedly bombing Syria etc
