It is playing out like this:

1) Trump/GOP We never talked to the Russians.

b) Trump/GOP Well, we talked to the Russians but not about the elections.

iii) Trump/GOP Well, we talked to the Russians and it was about the elections.

4) Trump/GOP Well, we talked to the Russians about the elections but they didn't
tamper in the vote.

e) Trump/GOP Well, we talked to the Russians about the elections and they did try
to tamper with the vote but it didn't effect the outcome of the elections.

And next up will be
vi) Trump/GOP Well, we talked to the Russians about the elections, they did try
to tamper with the vote with Trump/GOP/Cambridge Analytica help, and it effected
the outcome.

4. The GOP won't bite the hand that feeds it.

Russia is a PARTNER with the GOP in winning elections. Trumpy is an AGENT of Russia. Trumpy takes ORDERS from Putin. Russia hacked into the voter rolls. The notion that Russia respected the vote tallies and left them alone, untampered, is ridiculous.

Just follow the events. Just follow Trumpy's actions. It's as plain as sunrise. It's no mystery.

The GOP will NEVER legislate Russia out of the US election process. The GOP and Russia are allies. It's a win-win. Henceforth, there will be NO "free and fair" US elections for as long as the GOP holds power. They're addicted to Russian money and they won't stop filling their pockets with rubles. And since they hold power in Congress and the WH, there will be no opposition to Russia's takeover of the US election process.

5. Newsweek: MIKE PENCE COULD BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT AND HE WAS HANDPICKED BY PAUL MANAFORT

http://www.newsweek.com/mike-pence-was-handpicked-paul-manafort-696412

Russia is way deep into the Republican party.


Before Trump formally announced Pence as his vice presidential candidate, it was Manafort who made sure it happened, The New York Times reported last year.

Trump had hesitated to settle on Pence, who was governor of Indiana. Trump was fielding last-ditch appeals from New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and publicly said he had not made a “final, final decision” until advisers like Manafort reminded him of the importance of uniting the GOP around conservative Christian values.

CBS News reported that Pence was Manafort's "first choice" and that Manafort even lied about mechanical problems on Trump's plane to make the soon-to-be GOP nominee stay an extra day in Indiana to get to know Pence. In a phone call, Manafort assured Trump that Pence was the right choice and made a case that won over the real estate tycoon.

Manafort would later downplay his behind-the-scenes choice, telling the Times that Trump never seriously doubted Pence.

6. If Trump was elected with Russian 'help', then so was Pence.

8. And the Manafort connection solidifies the case....

...that Pence should NEVER even be IN the Oval Office, let alone ELECTED to it (or succeded to it). Give him two terms--time served as VP, the remainder in PRISON!

7. It may have affected the elections, but we didn't talk to the Russians

and the circle begins again.

9. In lists use the same set of numeration symbol for each level


The list generates cognitive dissonance because it seems that the second post is subsidiary to the first but it actually is at the same level and merely the next one in the list.

1

. b
. . i
. . ii
. . iii

14. I noticed that as well

And put down to a reflection of the mental gymnastics the WH/GOP must go through to convince themselves that they were correct to begin with but had to later alter their statement (not too much, mind you) to make it fit with their current narrative.
