There can be no doubt that there is a long-term, deep-seated conspiracy involving Trump and Russia that culminated in (1) Trump being financially dependent on Russian money; (2) Russia and Trump conspiring to interfere in a US election; and, (3) Trump bending US foreign policy to Russia’s advantage.
How do we know this? We know it for these reasons.
FIRST. There have been at least five annotated, carefully-researched books published that lay out in detail the facts of Trump’s ties to Russia.
Trump/Russia: A Definitive History, by Seth Hettena.
House of Trump, House of Putin: The Untold Story of Donald Trump and the Russian Mafia, by Craig Unger.
Collusion: Secret Meetings, Dirty Money, and how Russia Helped Donald Trump Win, by Luke Harding.
The Apprentice: Trump, Russia and the Subversion of American Democracy, by Greg Miller.
Proof of Collusion: How Trump Betrayed America, by Seth Abramson.
SECOND. There has been not one single publication of any kind that presents exculpatory evidence to refute the Trump-Russian conspiracy laid out in detail in the above-listed books and in various media presentations.
THIRD. There has been an active campaign by Republican members of Congress to squelch, interfere with and even block investigative measures that will confirm a Trump-Russia conspiracy. As proof of this, consider the antics of Devin Nunes who for 2017-2018 was Chairman of the US House Intelligence Committee. Nunes used his position to coordinate testimony with the White House; to squelch, even to block, testimony that would hurt the White House; and, to release a report that is, frankly, a joke.
FOURTH. The only defense offered by Trump, White House officials, and Trump’s defenders in his administration and in Congress has been ad hominem attacks on the people doing the investigating, and, constant references to “what about Hillary Clinton.” Trump’s daily Tweet rages are examples of the non-defense.
FINALLY. Robert Mueller’s investigation so far has obtained indictments against 33 people and at least 3 corporations.. Mueller has obtained guilty pleas or convictions from EIGHT people, all of them associated with or an integral part of the Trump campaign or administration or both. Not a single one of Mueller’s indictments or guilty please has been challenged or overturned. remember this: The Mueller team consists mainly of attorneys whose careers have been spent putting mobsters in jail . . . and the way they work is to start at the bottom with the street thugs, roll them over, then work their way to the top, to the Godfather. And now Godfather Trump can see it coming and there’s nothing he can do about it.
