William D. Ruckelshaus: "Only One Other President Has Ever Acted This Desperate"

And you know who that was.
   I still doubt the collusion theory. But I also can't see how we can tolerate a president trying to derail an investigation like this. My hunch, in this case, is that the cover-up isn't merely worse than the crime, it is the crime.
   Little more than an impressionistic hunch, though. Again, I'm not investing the kind of time in this crisis that I ordinarily would. I'm just waiting on Mueller's conclusions.

We *know* that DJT Jr and others colluded, and that Trump told him to lie about it.

In short, Donald Trump Jr took a meeting with Russians with the intent to obtain ‘dirt’ on HRC for use in the campaign. The Russians provided what they thought would be useful ‘dirt’. Junior evaluated that ‘dirt’ and was underwhelmed. He implied that he wanted better ‘dirt’ and specifically stated that he might consider the Russians policy wish list. The implication is that if the Russians provided better ‘dirt’, the Trumpers would push the Russian demands to the top of their priority list. A criminal conspiracy does not have to be successful to be a crime.
