A terrible mistake. Total reward to Russia for supporting Trump now stands at: 1. Defending their attack, 2. Obstruction of justice benefitting them, 3. Free pass on Syria, 4. Much strengthened North Korea, 5. Weakened NATO, 6. Weakened EU Ties, 7. Diminished US leadership...
8. Acknowledging Russian control of Crimea, 9. Soft-peddling pressure re: Ukraine, 10. Economic rewards for key oligarchs, 11. Public kow-towing to Putin, 12. Weakening U.S. defenses against further Russian cyber/info attacks, 13. Attacking U.S. intelligence and law enforcement
14. Continuous denials (still on-going) of Russian attacks on the U.S., 15. Seeking to shift scandal from focusing on Russia to focusing on Obama administration, 16. Granting security clearances to officials compromised by Russia ties
17. Appointing sr. officials w/close Russia ties to key top positions (Flynn, Kushner, Ross, Manafort, Gates, Cohen, etc.), 18. Eliminating INF treaty, 19. Weakening post WWII international infrastructure that was critical to US power, 20. Normalization of relations post attack
