Talking on the telephone with the Russians is now a form of "collusion".
As we're sure you know by now, Trump's National Security Adviser Michael Flynn resigned after it was revealed that he spoke with a Russian, using a telephone. That's first degree treason.
And now the witch-hunt has begun:
Democratic lawmakers say there are still many unanswered questions after Trump's national security adviser Michael Flynn resigned on Monday evening.
Several have asked whether Flynn's apparent close communications with Russia could have compromised parts of the Trump administration.
"Flynn's resignation is a good [first] step. If colluding with Russia on sanctions is unacceptable, what about colluding with Russia on the campaign," Rep. Jaime Raskin of Maryland said in a message posted on Twitter.
A tweet sent from former Colorado Rep. John Dingell's Twitter account said: "Flynn's resignation CANNOT be the end of the story. Who talked to who? When? Who knew? ... How far up did it go?"
Yes. So many "unanswered questions". How far up did this "talking" go? We need answers!
We were going to write a lengthy piece about how the United States is being held hostage by psychopathic establishment and its self-loathing sycophantic media; we were going to explain why communicating with foreign dignitaries is not a crime against the state. But really — what's the point?
We left the rational, thoughtful world long ago. We're now all neck deep in mind-melting guano.
Please let this sink in: There are now allegations of "compromised" officials who are "colluding" with the Russians because a member of Trump's cabinet had telephone conversation with the Russians.
You're not even allowed to speak with them, now? We thought the silent treatment was for second graders and failing marriages?
Here's NBC News, stating pretty plainly that the new Red Scare is a massive heap of garbage:
A senior intelligence official confirmed to NBC News last week that Flynn discussed the sanctions, which the Obama administration imposed to punish Russia for its campaign to interfere in the presidential election.
The intelligence official said there had been no finding inside the government that Flynn did anything illegal.
A senior official told NBC News on Monday night the president and his top advisers had been "agonizing" over what to do about Flynn for days. The official, who was involved in the discussions, says the situation became unsustainable — not because of any issue of being compromised by Russia — but because he had lied to the president and the vice president.
Yeah, but who ELSE talked with the Russians? How high up does this "talking" go? BURN THEM!
