34. "Elsewhere" got it wrong. Watch Rachel Maddow and keep up. Mueller has assembled an amazing...

...legal team, and he is going to Follow the Money, Honey. Why is that? Because Putin and the Oligarchs bought Trump's whole family for cash on the barrelhead.

For someone who was born and raised during the Cold War, this has been a bit hard to wrap my head around. Betrayal of country in those days was about ideology on the whole. Oh of course there were some who were blackmailed and some who did it for money, but the ideological lines were clear.

When people say that "Trump is not ideological" it eventually becomes clear that he has no allegiance to our country. His allegiance is to himself, his money, his ego, and his family. Money and the notoriety it can buy are what drives him.

In the 21st Century it is all so simple for Vladimir Putin. Oh sure the old KGB man keeps his hand in with kompromat files and losers like Greenwald, Assange, and Snowden, who think they are doing the world a favor. But with Trump and people like him? It's only money and the money flows like water, with Putin controlling the tap.

Trump sold out our democracy for nothing more than money. Don't kid yourself -- following the money will lead straight to the treason.

And I wish we still hanged traitors.
