    Donald Trump is tweeting again. This time he's denying that Russia helped him in the election, then he turns and uses Russia's help for him in the election as an attack on Obama:

    So, Mr. Trump: if there was no grand scheme between Trump & Russia, what exactly are you saying that the Obama Administration was supposed to stop?

    This is Trump's problem. He can deny collusion all he wants (and I agree that there's very little chance that he colluded with Russia), but to then turn right around and use Russia's meddling in the election as a political attack? The man is just trying to shoot himself in the foot.

    Oh - he's on a complete bender this morning. I guess he was too busy last night to tweet.

    I think "Trump and Russia" may not be true. But "Trump administration and Russia" may be... That's why it's so fishy over at the WH right now - he may not have personnally colluded with Russia, IF there's collusion, but it would seem pretty strange that he was not aware of anything...

    It's the same thing with Chris Christie, all his close aides got convicted yet he had "no knowledge". Whatever, the irony in all this is that if you or I were to be pulled over in a friend's car, and said friend had something illegal in the vehicle, then everyone is getting arrested. Trump isn't going anywhere anytime soon as I'm honestly getting sick of this Russian crap. The Democratic left is lost with no message, still looking for Hillary. Complete 180 from when Obama was in office and Republicans were doing the same thing.
