It's dj vu all over again, isn't it?

Is the man who ran Trumpís campaign for free the mastermind behind the most unhinged Ukraine conspiracy theory?

Has anyone else noticed that we already had a presidential election during which all you heard was ďRussia! Russia! Russia!Ē and now here we are three years later in the middle of another one, and all you hear is ďUkraine! Ukraine! Ukraine!Ē? Itís easy to forget the good old days when you would read long take-outs by political whizzes like Jack Germond about the genius of some Republican state committeeman in deep Indiana who was going to turn out the south 32 counties for Nixon in a tightly contested primary. Who even knows what a Republican committeeman is these days, when youíre more likely to read that some hack Ukrainian prosecutor holds the keys to Trumpís re-election.

Itís 2016 all over again, folks. The only thing thatís changed is the name of the corrupt foreign country that Trump is tapping to influence his re-eleIIIction to the presidency. Even some of the players are the same. Remember Paul Manafort, the late, lamented former Trump campaign chairman who fancied ostrich skin jackets and $12,000 suits? Well, old Paul is currently sporting prison polyester, waist chains and handcuffs, and heís ba-a-a-a-a-a-ack!

The fact is, there is so much new stuff about Trump trying to get a foreign country to help in his re-election that we are liable to forget the outrages against our democracy that weíve already endured. So letís stop right now and remind ourselves that it was the Mueller investigation that produced 25 indictments of Russian citizens for hacking Democratic Party emails and for running a social media campaign intended to influence the 2016 presidential election. And it was also Mueller and his prosecutors who indicted and convicted Trumpís former campaign manager, ó that would be Manafort ófor tax and financial fraud crimes that landed him in prison for seven and a half years

It's dťjŗ vu all over again, isnít it? In 2016, the Trump campaign was linked to Russia. This time, itís Ukraine. In 2016, it was Manafort. This time, itís Giuliani. Both of them linked to shady characters from Russia and Ukraine, both of them on the take for money that has been passed through shell companies and offshore banks. These guys canít touch anything without turning it into a crooked scheme. And the biggest and most crooked scheme of all is Donald Trumpís campaign for re-election.

1. I keep thinking the POTUS

private lawyer is paid by a dude who gets money from an Russian oligarch. And no one is tripped out about it.
