How do you solve a problem like Butina?

Maria Butina has decided to “fully cooperate” with the prosecutors who are investigating her actions as a foreign agent and her ties to the NRA.

I’m going to take a guess here that Trump’s was not the only Republican campaign that accepted rich and creamy dark money donations from the NRA.

The Parkland students found that out earlier this year. We’re talking about you, Marco Rubio.

Let’s try to get into the heads of all those Republican Senators who knew the source of all that gun money and did (and are doing) everything the Kremlin wants right now. How do they feel about what Maria Butina is going to say?

We can also dispense with the notion that the Russians were just interested in causing trouble and weren’t willing to do anything to win the 2016 election. Let’s dispose of that fantasy right now. You don’t go to all this trouble with the Facebook stuff and the hacking and the wheelbarrows full of cash to everyone running as a Republican if you aren’t interested in winning.

Vlad had a moment on Wednesday, November 9, 2016. It went something like this:

I suspect he’s also read a lot of Sun Tzu.

“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.”

How does that feel to you, oh fellow American?
