David Stockman reminds us how flimsy the “Russiagate” case has been from the very beginning, and that we should really be focusing on how the investigation even got started in the first place. Stockman claims that President Trump’s idea that it would be better to cooperate with Russia rather than continue a new Cold War with them was intolerable to the ruling class, who want America to remain undisputed atop the world geopolitical hierarchy, which means policing the globe and flexing our military might at every opportunity. The Russiagate investigation has been nothing but an elaborate attempt to bring Trump down for other reasons. Stockman dismantles each pillar of the phony case one by one.
