    I can only guess that this Russia-gate BS is designed to be a bargaining chip for Democrats to avoid criminal prosecution on corruption charges.

    It's a violation of allegiance to my sovereign government in aiding its enemies

    If team Trump traded concessions such as lifting sanctions for help winning the election....it is treason

    To which "enemies" are you referring? Russia? Iran? Trump supporters? Republicans? Other deplorables?

    We had invoked sanctions against Russia

    That would qualify as an enemy

    Russia alone will suffice, in my opinion

    And why is Russia alone an "enemy" of the U.S. Have we/they declared war? Or are you still angry that Trump won the election?

    Do you normally impose sanctions against allies? Do you prefer countries that threaten your treaty allies and their territorial integrity?!?

    With respect to selective memories re - 'collusion'...



    and 'cooperation' with the 'enemy'...
    ...The plan also represents a big change in U.S.-Russia policy. It would give Russian President Vladimir Putin something he has long wanted: closer military relations with the United States and a thawing of his international isolation.
