    As an American all I care about is how the USA relates to Putin and Russia.

    Realpolitik. we did it with the USSR and there's no reason not to now,
    except for Russiaphobes like yourself and John McCain that demand I give a shit about Russian politics
    Do you like the fact that your president sucks Putin's dick?
    GET READY FOR THE 2017 SURPRISE.

    But it was a big nothing burger because, again, Hillary was going to win anyway.

    Here's a Daily Beast writer whining about it:

    "The Intelligence Community had already gone on the record in early October with an assessment that Moscow was interfering with our election.

    Now, it has come to light that senior Members of Congress had been briefed in September on the pervasive Russian threat to the core functioning of our democracy. Obama dispatched FBI director James Comey, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnston, and White House counterterrorism and homeland security advisor Lisa Monaco to brief the so-called “Gang of 12” lawmakers: House & Senate leaders, as well as the chairmen and ranking members on the Homeland Security and Intelligence Committee."

    But Trump's election changed everything.

    Suddenly, it was a big deal. Suddenly, there's a Russian agent behind every desk in the West Wing. The motivation behind it is 100% political and it serves two purposes: one is to delegitimize Trump's election and the other is to serve as a 'steady drip-drip' to hinder his agenda.

    Note that the media dutifully brings out a 'new revelation' every few weeks which turn out to be duds. They have to do that or it would be forgotten about.
    — it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. [Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber]
