    What we know:

    1. Putin hacked the DNC servers and released damaging information
    2. Trump used that information in his campaign
    3. Trump defended Putin as "US is just as bad", removed military aid to Ukraine, offered to consider lifting economic sanctions and recognize Russian control of Crimea
    4. Trump aides met with Russian official while this is going on

    Available hypothesis:
    1. This could all be a series of coincidences
    2. Trump aides could have met with Russians to discuss the timing of the release of information
    3. Trump aides may have offered policy concessions in return for the hacking

    Get back to us when you can turn those "could"s and "may"s into "did"'s, Winger! Until then you're just blowing smoke.

    Do you understand what a hypothesis is?

    As you employ it, Winger...a hypothesis is wishful thinking!

    Once again...this all goes to the fact that the "damaging material" that was hacked simply revealed the DNC as the corrupt organization they were. The biggest influence on this past election wasn't Putin for revealing the truth...it was Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazille for undermining the political process!

    Hypothesis #1 says it is all a series of coincidences

    Isn't that wishful thinking?

    It was never a "coincidence" what took place in the DNC, Winger! That was a coordinated effort by the Clinton Camp to knee cap Bernie Sanders and turn the debates into a farce. Wishful thinking is that it was something other than that. This was a self inflicted wound. Clinton and her minions have nobody to blame but themselves for what transpired.

    If it weren't for the intercepts from allies that point to treason on the part of at least the trump team, you could call it wishful thinking. Reality is, those interactions are a matter of record. Congress not moving fast on this evidence, well that to me is a different kind of treason. Supporting those people makes you complicit in their machinations

    Care to define "treason?" Or is that too much to ask?
