Trump's hyper-fragile grandiose ego has changed the Russia probe from what it really is - an investigation into Russian interference into the American election - into Trump's egocentric view of it - an investigation to discredit Trump's "fabulous" victory in November.
This is about Russia's war on the U.S. and all of the West. Russia tried to elect a Fascist in France, but the French were on to the ruse and defeated Russia's candidate. Russia had and continues to havre massive control over Ukraine. Russia continues to interfere in American politics. It must be uncovered and countered. They have fractured America's political system and damaged America's relations with our allies. Russia is winning this war, which our president doesn't even recognize. Amazing.
Russia has found new weapons in today's electronic world - hacking. They are being quite successful, unfortunately. And our current president is missing the entire point. Not a big surprise, of course.
It's not about Trump - it's the Russians, stupid...
Of course, if he actually did/does collude with the Russians, it becomes about him too...Could be a motive for him to try to stop the investigation, of course.
