As Solon would say "We must believe the allegations"

You don't claim to speak for me Steven, and I won't claim you believe everything written in Breitbart, The DAily Stormer, and RT.

I wasn't speaking for you - just borrowing your concept.

Setting aside your mischaracterization of my position, the issue is a serious one. Since it came from Politico originally, it can be taken seriously, unlike reports from your favorite source of fake news, Breitbart.

If the Obama administration did as the article alleges, it deserves exposure and condemnation. It's not a connection so much as turning a blind eye to criminal activity by a foreign enemy. There is no justification for it under any circumstances and I find the stated rationale weak at best. At least we can feel assured a team of prosecutors will get to the bottom of it.

We agree on this one.

I'm sorta like this by 90 percent of the stuff on Trump. Is this really worth the time, money, and resources?

Exposure has been the disinfectant that helped prevent this kind of behavior in the past. Just because we are flooded with corrupt behavior and poor policy decisions is no reason to acquiesce. Democracy dies in darkness is not just a slogan. If the American people lack the stamina to follow the revelations and vote accordingly they will be the generation of weak-minded fools who allowed the American Dream to die on their watch.
