I need help from conservative writer David Frum, a senior editor at The Atlantic. In 2001–02, he was a speechwriter for President George W. Bush.
“They knew they would be meeting with representatives of the Russian state.
They knew they were being offered Russian state intelligence.
They intended to use Russian intelligence offered by Russian agents against an American opponents.
They did not alert the FBI.”

Collusion Is Worse Than a Crime To debate whether Trump acted criminally is to miss the greater point: He’s a national-security threat.
Here come them dang bad-news polls again.
Some key supporters have begun to migrate away from Trump, notably Republicans, independents and white men. Trump’s approval among Republicans dropped to just 74 percent, a 14-percentage-point tumble from last month, according to IBD/TIPP. His approval among independents fell 11 percentage points to 29 percent. Among white men, one of Trump’s strongest demographic bases, his approval rating fell from 58 percent to 49 percent.
But then what do you expect when Mr. President turns on his allies and un-protects the wrong things?

He’s lost in his narcissism. One of the best instruments of resistance in dealing with 45 has proven to be mockery, satire and parody. Consider at the popularity of Saturday Night Live versus the popularity of your president.
45’s inability to handle this stuff is what leads to more fumbles. Such is the principle reason for the mockery … mine included.
