USA investigators claim a St Petersburg company called the Internet Research Agency sought to influence the result of the election by setting up a multi-million dollar "Internet troll" campaign. But not Trump - he's been firing people, threatening to fire others, literally climbing the walls, and totally preoccupied with the investigation to the exclusion of everything else. Why? "Ask Jeff Sessions!" he added, urging his Attorney General to act.
Why? And he seems to be furious at everybody BUT the Russians who attacked our democracy. Why?
CNN can't help but try to discredit Trump's presidency.
Trump has yet to impose sanctions overwhelmingly passed by Congress previous year and missed deadlines to identify which Russian individuals and entities would be on the sanctions list. This is perhaps what is so troubling about Trump and Russia: No matter where the truth lies, and no matter if Trump is somehow exonerated in the Russia probe, he will always allow U.S. policy toward Russia to be dictated more by his ego than what's best for America.
Trump has adamantly denied any cooperation between his team and Russian Federation and has called the investigation a Democratic hoax.

Trump is not the only politician who has recently criticized how the Obama administration handled Russia's election meddling. Another tragedy like the mass deaths in Aleppo is possible in the Damascus suburb of Ghouta, where dozens of women and children have been killed so far this month during Russian-aided bombing attacks that Assad says are antiterrorist operations.
There's no evidence the Russians thought Trump had a chance to win, just like no US political experts thought Trump had a chance to win.
Under a mandate and deadline from Congress, the administration in late January released a public report listing Russians who have gained wealth or power under President Vladimir Putin - 114 politicians and 96 "oligarchs" in all. The indictment mentioned Facebook as the main channel that was used by the Russians to push their agenda of supporting Donald Trump.
The U.S Presidential election of 2016 was not without interference from external forces. That's just a small part of a much larger conspiracy. The first is that Mueller makes clear that Trump campaign involvement with the Russians was "unwitting".
Efforts taken by Facebook principally centers around the verification of people to see if they actually are as they claim to be. By comparison, Trump has publicly sided with Putin and failed to enforce sanctions imposed by Congress. Trump conveniently changed the narrative once indictments were handed out against Russian nationals. Ultimately, they made a decision to boost the prospects of Donald Trump. Others want to jump directly to impeachment even before Mueller determines what role, if any, the Trump campaign played in any of this.
