Why are the Republicans helping Trump cover up his Russian collusion?
Because, it wasn’t the Russians that hacked the elections. It was the Republicans. The Russians had their bots, but it was the Republicans and Cambridge Analytica that stole the election for Trump. The bots were crude weapons with limited results, but Cambridge had specific data on everyone on social media and they used it to target vulnerable voters with untraceable ads that disappear within hours. They claim to know us better than we know ourselves.
The Republicans will admit to Russia’s part hoping it will end there. We applied sanctions, so there is nothing else to be done.
And the main culprit will get away with it, and be free to strike again.
