If there's any truth to the notion that the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian state to disrupt the electoral process, then yes, what we're seeing now are the early outlines of a Watergate-style scandal that could topple a presidency.
But it could also be true that both the Democratic Party and many leading media outlets are making a dangerous gamble, betting their professional and political capital on the promise of future disclosures that may not come.
In the meantime, as I see it, the Dems run the risk . . . . the increasing risk . . . . . that something incriminating will surface implicating the Democrat Party at some level.
Take, for example, the hacking of the DNC, last year. That is an accepted fact, primarily because the Dems actually admit that the event took place. What people forget, is the fact that the DNC refused to surrender their servers and computers to the FBI for forensic analysis. Like Hillary and her server, the Dems are clearly hiding something. Whatever that might be, there is no good reason for this refusal.
With that in mind, I am thinking, again, the longer this baseless nonsense continues, the greater the risk to the truth behind their refusal to cooperate with the FBI.
All we can do is hope for the best, on that score. But, make no mistake, the Dems are more at risk for evidence of criminal behavior than the GOP. After all, they are the only ones refusing cooperation with the Intel community.
