Well if Putin's spokesman denies the allegations,

that's good enough for me.

But, will anyone believe it at this point?

If Flynn ends up floating in the East River, they will.

“General Flynn certainly has a story to tell, and he very much wants to tell it, should the circumstances permit,” said Flynn’s lawyer, Robert Kelner. But Kelner said there had been “vicious innuendo" against Flynn in the news media and that “no reasonable person, who has the benefit of advice from counsel, would submit to questioning in such a highly politicized, witch hunt environment without assurances against unfair prosecution.”

How can anyone be sure that the special prosecutor would be impartial?

That is where it will take a lot of expertise and compromise on the part of Trump, Bannon, Mercer, McConnell, Ryan and rest of Republican leadership.  Especially the extremists in the House and Senate.

With current climate in Washington and rest of the country, no way any commission or prosecutor would be accepted by everyone as impartial.

But, they have come close in the past.

Witness' blistering words about Trump-
Clint Watts, senior fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, says President Trump used active Russian measures against his opponents during the 2016 election.

At this point, the only way for GOP to downplay this issue is to appoint a special prosecutor.  No matter what the House and Senate committees, DOJ, etc. do, most people will assume a coverup.

Details of the Russian fake news campaign was coming out of the Senate hearing today.  Very interesting stuff.  There was also specific targeting of districts in the likes of Wisconsin and Michigan.  According to Warner this was beyond the know-how capabilities of the Russians so the question is what (campaign) person with that savvy was directing them?

Trump's business network reached alleged Russian mobsters-

 

"To expand his real estate developments over the years, Donald Trump, his company and partners repeatedly turned to wealthy Russians and oligarchs from former Soviet republics — several allegedly connected to organized crime, according to a USA TODAY review of court cases, government and legal documents and an interview with a former federal prosecutor....

Russians Take To The Streets In Nationwide Anti-Government Protests-

 

 

"...thousands of Russians took to the streets of Moscow and other cities in the biggest anti-government protests in years.

In Moscow, police arrested hundreds of demonstrators, including prominent Russian opposition leader and anti-corruption activist, Alexei Navalny, who orchestrated the uprising.

 

The crowds gathered to protest government corruption,....

 

we had 10,000 in St. Petersburg, the estimates here in Moscow are about 20,000,"...

 

Following criticism of the Trump administration's silence on Sunday's crack down, the State Department condemned the arrests by evening, calling the move "an affront to core democratic values."....

"Trump understands he’s in trouble on the Russia question and that despite what you may think at the moment, his counterattack was highly effective.

As we ought to have figured out by now, the president has zero command of facts and no ability for rational argument. What he does possess, like the Shadow — a radio-serial crimefighter Trump may recall from early childhood — is “the power to cloud men’s minds.” When he sees his enemies marshaling actual evidence against him, Trump has a remarkable ability to use rhetoric, imagination and lies to turn that evidence upside down or drain it of meaning and significance.....

This past election has brought to the attention of 1 phobia and created a new one.

 

Chaetophobia.... is a rare phobia which causes an irrational, abnormal and persistent fear of hair.

 

ccb08583ccf7bfa20d71ef704324be9c.jpg

 

 

 

New one....Russophobia.....Fear of anything Russian related, they are inside every net, domain, server.  A Russian hiding behind every bush, tree, shrub, building, etc.  Anyone simply talking to a Russian.

This might be inter related.

 

Arkoudaphobia.....The fear of bears or better медведь.

Trump has made a steady practise of deleting and destroying evidence in his various law suits throughout his entire career.  That has been well looked at.  Then he crucified Clinton for doing the same.

What I find curious is that as with most pathological liars whatever they crow about they are almost certainly more guilty of themselves.

Recall Trump's knee-jerk debate response to Hillary Clinton on the subject of Putin ..."Oh no, your'e the puppet, you're the puppet."  That response was so ridiculously untrue I believe it was an insight into Trump's real guilt.

Not to mention still hiding his income tax returns.
