    How about if we tally up and everyone come clean about the dirty deeds they implemented in the last election. Or the election before? There's enough mud slinging to go around. The pot calling the kettle black is getting REAL OLD.

    Op-research is part of the political game. But you don't play the op-research game with a foreign power, especially your number one enemy in the world. You just don't do it!!! You don't go there. You hang up the phone. You don't take the meeting. You immediately notify the FBI. If you take that meeting, the enemy knows you are open to playing the game. Playing this game with an enemy like Russia opens you up to being blackmailed. Russia wants things from the US. If they have things they can hold over the heads of our leaders, our nation's policies are compromised. Everyone on here knows that you don't cooperate with a hostile power like Russia over opposition research. What would your reaction be if it had been another campaign that had done the exact same thing? Let's all be intellectually honest with one another.
    I think we know. The "your guy did it, too" is in everyone's playbook. On both sides. It's a great fallback when things aren't going your guy's way.

    Not trying for this to be another "...but Hillary" post. But I thoroughly believe that's a big reason Trump won in the first place.

    No doubt.

    Doesn't change the topic at hand.

    " If you’re not a Republican, watching Republicans react to the news can feel a bit like witnessing a mass hallucination. Even more so when some emissary from the alternate Republican universe like Kellyanne Conway teleports onto CNN or another mainstream outlet to state her case."
