Collusion book read: connecting the dots

     I have just finished a book that I highly recommend to anyone who wants to understand how the Russians have played the United States through Trump and his associates.  The book is called "Collusion: Secret meetings, dirty money, and how Russia helped Donald Trump win."  The book is by Luke Harding a reporter for the Guardian who has written often about how Russia has sought to regain its role as a major player on the world scene. 
     With information on Trump's financial ties to Russian dirty money and video of  Trump with Russian prostitutes Putin has blackmailed Trump into taking actions that could clearly be labeled as treasonous.  The Russians don't need a mole in the White House as long as they have Trump.  In my mind Trump is not the only person guilty of treason.   Republican members of Congress that have tried to make it seem as if American law enforcement agencies are the problem are also doing Russia bidding.  Selling out your country to protect your Republican Party leader is something that would have been unimaginable before Trump appeared on the scene.  The books that will come out later about the Trump administration will be hair raising.  This is only the first of many.
