I posted this on Facebook:

In January of 2017, General Michael Flynn was captured in a phone call with the Russians. Red flags went up everywhere. This was the National Security Advisor on the phone having secret phone calls with the Russians. (Photos had already been published of General Flynn sitting at a table with Vladimir Putin) The suspicions were already there. It only confirmed them in many folks minds.

It was up to the Republicans to do something about it. They were then in charge of the House, the Senate, and the White House. They were in charge of everything. The Democrats had no power to appoint anyone.

It was up to the Republicans to do something about the charges against General Flynn, which had been recorded by our FBI. The inauguration came and went and General Flynn remained in his position, with full access to all of America's secrets.

There were rumors in the press that Mr Trump had business interests in Moscow, where he wanted to build a new Moscow Trump Tower. Mr Trump called it a "hoax". It was later proven, also with testimony from his lawyer, Michael Cohen, that they were indeed negotiating to build a Trump Tower in Moscow. Also, they were negotiating during the entirety of the 2016 presidential campaign, as Mr Trump was lying to the American people about it.

The Republicans felt very pressured to do something. So they appointed a Special Counsel, named Robert Mueller, to investigate the charges that Russia may have interfered with the 2016 election? That also, was proven to be true, even though William Barr threw it in the trash can and said there was nothing there. It is easy for the average person to miss the big picture.

Then we had all the controversies in between. From Russia, to Syria, to China, to North Korea, to Saudi Arabia, there seemed to be something going on just below the surface?

Additionally, there were all the "private" phone calls between Trump and Putin? They did nothing to quell the suspicions of many Americans.

Eventually, the polls began to go in a more negative direction for Mr Trump. Now, we see a bit of election anxiety in the Republican Party. They are worried about their own jobs. They are very concerned that Mr Trump may take down a large number of them in November.

More than three and a half years later, it seems we have come full circle? All the roads do lead to Putin. Nobody can explain the relationship that Mr Trump has with Vladimir Putin. Nobody.

The Republican Party is at a crossroads. They are back at the same spot they were in January of 2017. They get another bite of the apple. Do they appoint another "Special Counsel"?

1. I still like a phrase I read a long time ago.

When you shake a Trump tree, a Russian falls out.
