You sure put a lot of thought into that, much like the poster Hollywood's usual drive-by.

Just 3 things to remember
1) there was no contact between the Trump Campaign and the Russians
2) When they did meet it was only to talk about adoption policies
3) They talked about adoption after they talked about how the Russians could help the campaign
4) there's probably more....
Thanks from Camelot

the russian person approached the trump team unasked.
the trump team never approached the russians. the best you have is they turned up to a meeting someone else arranged.
the trump team never received anything of value.
the trump team never offered anything of value.

the most you can say is the russians wanted to undermine the election, they kind of tried, but didnt actually have anything. the trump team is entirely passive, they were invited to a useless meeting and didnt do anything. i cannot see how its possible to make this into a crime.

and if it is, then ANY contact ANY candidate has with ANYONE who is not an american citizen is a crime. if the democrat team stayed in a hotel that was serviced by illegal workers from mexico, then they received material assistance in their campaign from non citizens. how far are you going to push this? if a sitting president is running a second time, are they barred from talking to an ambassador? if a candidate has a child who married overseas, then having dinner with the family might qualify as treason.

Nixon opened the door to Red China in 1972 when he met Mao in Peking. I could tell by the body language that they were in disagreement and then the Vietnam War headed up again.

Look, the chances of real charges emerging are minuscule.
But this "scandal" can be used to political advantage.
Just like the GOP harped on the non-issues of Bengazi and Email servers, the Dems should use the Russian connection to stall the Trump agenda, and to undermine the credibility of the GOP.
The Trump team has played into the hands of the Democrats.
It would be one thing if the Trump Team had mentioned this meeting when it happened, but they lied and claimed they never met with the Russians, then when that got exposed, they claimed they only talked about adoption, then that got exposed as a lie, and they admitted they went there to get dirt on Hillary Clinton. Dirt the Russians obtained by hacking the servers of both major political parties. Over and over, key players of the Trump team, deny meeting Russians, and then admit they met Russians, the stories keep changing, and that makes them look guilty as hell.
And that should be used as a political weapon to destroy the administration.
Because that's the way the game is played, by GOP rules.

Groundless speculation. You believe the same people that have lied during their security clearance process of at least 20 Russian contacts and counting. You are reaching Dragon.

Sit with that for a minute: The eldest son of the de facto Republican presidential nominee reportedly met with someone he knew was peddling information as part of a Russian government effort to elect his dad. That's stunning. There's just no other word for it.

They lied about their Russian contacts and now we are up to at least 20. They lied about colluding and now we know they invited a Russian operative to Trump Tower for that very purpose. There is only one reason that an administration would engage in such coordinated lies and that is because they acted illegally and they know it. When Mueller indicts Manafort, he will turn like a top. It is just a matter of time now folks.

I subscribe to a morning news top ten email from Axios. This morning a biggie was the New York Post front page who I guess broke the story. Anyway, the editor who picks the top ten items usually adds a sentence or two about them. Today's was
