    For 18 months, Conservatives denied Trump had any contact with Russia. Then, they said that contact with Russia is no big deal. Now they're saying so what if the GOP colluded with Russia?

    So in the last 24 months, Conservatives have changed their position on Russian meddling twice.

    But why were they denying contact between Trump/GOP and Russia from the start?

    Can you believe they still use that "Russian Dressing" analogy?

    I haven't changed my position. Show me the proof, convict him & put in another president.

    Who gives a fuck what everyone says? If he did something illegal PROSECUTE HIM OR THEM.

    Perchance you can shift position and sit upon said goalpost?

    Trump did nothing wrong and you hate that fact.

    What kind of proof would satisfy you? What would it take for you to accept it? Stop trying to move the goalposts.

    Trump did nothing wrong? But you all were saying for 18 months he had no contact with Russia. So if he did nothing wrong in having contact with Russia, why lie about it!?!?

    You don't need to satisfy me. I am neither a prosecutor or judge.

    I suspect you aren't either. Our OPINIONS are not relevant to LAW.
