5. Meddling, collusion, interference whatever - it does call into question

the legitimacy of the election and its outcome.

Collusion means the Trump campaign worked with the Russians. Another (criminal) level to the interference/meddling by a foreign government.

But whatever you want to call it - it calls into question Trump's "legitimacy".

And it should - because it does.

The GOP is attempting to create the narrative that as long as no one questions Trump's win then we can all agree Russia interfered - but if anyone says because of the interference - and any collusion between the campaign and Russia - the election results are in question - then the GOP doesn't want to acknowledge that.

And for good reason - (for them) - Trump is giving them what they have wanted for decades.

That's the "compromise" carrot they are dangling - agree the election results were not influenced and they'll play as pretty as they are able. (which won't be much)

Claim the election results were impacted and they'll fight.
