I think it has made sense for the US and Russia to work together on Syria.

Quite so.

The issue that would sink Trump has alway been his funding that saved him from bankruptcy again. And that was predominantly Russian for the last ten years but there has been enough trips to the well to provide an endless stream of smoking guns. I just grabbed this from Bloomberg:

I don’t understand this argument. Even if true, these are loans from Russian banks, not the Russian government. The assumptions here seem to be that (a) Putin controls the banks and therefore (b) can put financial pressure on Trump through calling his loans. That’s close to UFO-style conspiracy thinking.

You don’t ignore this kind of thing. Trump is a small time crook who had the money to become a large, small time crook.

I don’t seen anything there worth paying attention to. Period. Trump Jr (not the President) took a meeting that if the situation was reversed, a man like Podesta would have taken in a minute. Nothing came of it, apparently.

I am terribly sorry to break this to you, but it is perfectly legal for the son of the President to have a meeting with a Russian national.

And if it’s not, then it’s time to get the hell out of the US, because it’s no longer a free country.
