Chuck please offer even one major-media article—not an editorial, a *report*—accusing the Trump campaign of "taking part in" Russian hacking before- or during-the-fact

No one reported that

The only ones who discuss it are radicals like you who claim liberals said it

We didn't

By the same token, @ChuckRossDC, please explain how Trump *literally disseminating stolen WikiLeaks intel* at dozens of rallies in September/October 2016—and his team retweeting it madly on Twitter—*isn't* "evidence the Trump team took part in dissemination" of WikiLeaks content

This is what I mean about media wrongly referring to far-right slanders as a "case." There's no "case" in any way lawyers or researchers would understand it, there's just nonsensical denials punctuated by outrageous slanders. That's it. That's the whole of the "defense" of Trump.

And @ChuckRossDC, if you don't have the *courage* to Google the federal bribery statute to see that Trump's solicitation of bribes from Ukrainians falls *squarely* into what that statute sends people to prison for and what the Constitution enumerates as impeachable, quit your job
