Long case of Donald Trump being exactly the Russian puppet Hillary Clinton told us four years ago

Bountygate: Putin Kicks the Dog
This is way worse than Watergate. Why aren't we treating it that way?

Say it again a different way: Taliban killed US soldiers and got paid for it. By Russia. By the government run as a dictatorship by Vladimir Putin. Who, hand in glove with its powerful mafiya, owns Trump. Whose election fuckery won Trump the White House. Whose election fuckery Trump is depending on in November, to cheat himself into another term and avoid criminal prosecution.

Simply put, there are only two reasons Trump has done nothing about Bountygate. First: he can’t, because he’s both owned by Putin and depending on his active endorsement come Election Day. Second, he’s grotesquely incompetent. (Note that the two are not mutually exclusive). This is merely the latest and most brazen exhibit in the long case of Donald John Trump being exactly the Russian puppet Hillary Clinton told us four years ago that he was.

But why did Putin do this? The bounty program is gratuitous. Surely the Taliban don’t need convincing to kill US soldiers. This is the little twerp flexing his muscles, demonstrating, for all the world to see, his complete control over our supplicant president. For all we know, it was Putin’s own intelligence services who leaked the story. That little fucker wanted us all to know.

The occasional PREVAIL correspondent Moscow Never Sleeps, who worked for years in Russia, explains the psychology at work here: “Power in Russia is being able to kick your enemy’s dog in the ribs, in public, without fear of reprisal,” he says. “The reason the Russians won’t deny the bounty story other than with a bit of a smirk and a ‘Who, us?’ denial is that if Trump won’t even acknowledge, much less protest, far much less do a goddamned thing about it, what Putin is proving is that he can kill the occasional neighbor’s dog with impunity.” (That Trump famously hates dogs makes this parable all the more apt).

So it’s like this: A hostile foreign power has kicked our proverbial dog, for all the world to see. Our president has not so much as lifted a finger to stop him—and his GOP enablers are shamefully, contemptuously silent.

An honorable man would resign—but Trump has no honor. A patriotic Senate Majority Leader would pressure him to do so—but Mitch McConnell is a traitor to his country. It’s incumbent upon us not let this story die. Bountygate must be front and center until the election.

1. Why aren't we treating it that way?

Because Republicans are more concerned with maintaining power than protecting the Constitution. They, too, have taken Russia money and support and so are complicit in the plot against our Democracy/

3. Problem is, you know that, I know that, we ALL know that

But the GOP and the national media have pretended not to notice.

When we finally rid ourselves of this menace to democracy, the GOP will tell us that any action against them or Trump is vengeful and politically-driven and happened a "long time ago" so move on and leave us the hell alone so we can do it all over again in the future. The media will continue to subject us to both-siderism and will blaspheme any Democrats who pursue this line of inquiry.

Folks, the GOP and the media are in bed together and they form the 3rd leg of this triangle of deceit.

5. Outrage fatigue. This is a man who is both totally morally bankrupt and wrong at every opportunity.

We only have so much attention and time, and he's committing impeachable offenses and crimes every day.
