Russiagate: "This Is What A Cover-Up...Looks Like"

link
   Obviously now there has to be an independent investigation, and it's just a matter of time before the GOP will be forced to capitulate on that point. The evidence of significant links between the Trumpistas and the Russians is simply too strong to ignore, as is the evidence that the Trump administration and important members of the GOP are running a cover-up. 
   None of that is to say that there was illegal collusion--just that there is more than enough evidence to make an investigation obligatory. Way, way, way more than enough evidence. It is no longer permissible to not have an independent investigation. And if it takes demonstrations in the streets to force the GOP to do the right thing, then so be it.
   I tend to want to stay above such frays, but, obviously, we're looking at something here that walks and quacks like an extremely Russian duck. Right now we should only be focusing on forcing an investigation...but honestly, I'm going to be pretty surprised if there's not something very illegal at the bottom of all this.

But but but...Muscovy ducks are actually from Mexico! And that ladies and gentlemen of the jury does not make sense! And if it does not makes sense you must acquit!
