When we're done dealing with this Trump bullshit, we need to look into getting the FCC to revoke their broadcast license.
This is beyond expressing opinion. This is doing harm to the nation.
The FCC mainly has jurisdiction over conventional broadcast signals, not subcription services like satellite and cable. Not sure what they can do, but I'd sure like it if they could do something.
Meh. In a just world they would all be held guilty of conspiracy to obstruct justice and be thrown in jail.

The reason why all of this is ramping up is because Trump knows he's fucked. Basically, Mueller's team has been politely hinting to Trump's lawyers that once they get around to formally questioning Trump, the questions they will be asking are questions Trump literally cannot answer without lying, his lawyers have basically so much as said so. So, Mueller has been playing a strange, long game with all of this. Reliable rumor is that his case basically boils down to this: 1.)Trump is compromised by Russia in the form of debts and his numerous extra marital affairs so 2.) he his being coerced into collusion and 3.) he had to obstruct justice to prevent anyone digging into it.
Mueller has options, and I would assume he is smart enough to have smelled all this coming ages ago.
Also, it’s quite likely Putin has a literal gun to either Tiffany or Barron’s head in the form of anybody within the private Trump security staff.

The only thing Putin cares about is making the West look as dumb and corrupt as his own nation. Everything Russia does it does in order to keep it's corrupt Oligarchical system in place, they don't care about anything else.
The strategy is convincing Russia that democracy is deeply corrupt by default, so they have to choose between liberal faggy Western democracy and manly super-hetero Orthodox Russian democracy. There really wouldn't be any point to killing anyone since Trump and Brexit made the West look like total cretins already.
Whatever happens next can only benefit them, everything that is proved about their meddling can be spinned as Putin being this Machiavelli Sun-Tsu, trolling the West or the West always blaming Russia for their own internal problems (the classic Putinist projection tactic).
The stupid thing is if Trump let Russia release everything they have on him, his Moral Christian Base would give zero shits. They would be fine if he had hookers dressed up as african tribesmen wearing rubber Obama masks pissing all over the bed; they would be fine with him porking 12 prostitutes dressed up in nothing but bologna slices and mayo.
They are just too invested in him. Even if he had Stormy Daniels abort a kid they would find some way to rationalise it and tell themselves how he's all pro-life and shit.
Tribalism. It's a hell of a drug.
Putin has already "won". It's easy for Putin to win, insofar as it's easier to tear down than to build up. But what Russia has won itself is the distrust of every nation on Earth, ranging from contempt to terror depending on how physically near the Bear is -- as a result, it's won itself a future as China's little bitch.

I don't think Trump had to be blackmailed over debts or screwing hookers or anything like that.
I think all Russia had to do was offer to make him dictator for life if he helped them take over America. Even though there's no way they could pull that off and there's no chance they would put Trump in charge even if they did somehow manage to do it, Trump is fool enough to leap at the chance to be a strongman like Putin.

The longer this goes on the more it feels like a remake of Batman Returns. Stay with me here.
A fat delusional catchphrase-spouting jackass rises to unearned fame mostly on his willingness to say anything for attention, enters politics on a whim, proceeds to be as openly corrupt as humanly possible.
This forces a showdown against a tall, lean, extremely serious lawman who doesn't have much of a screen presence but he sure as hell gets results. And at the end he'll probably take down the idiot by releasing a really embarrassing tape (but instead of "HARP FROM HELL," the choice quote will be "more salty toilet juice, mommy" in mangled Russian.)
Also Catwoman is there.
Odds are once Mueller gets into trumps financials a piss play sex tape will be the least incriminating thing he will find.
Such as millions in loans from Russians with close ties to the Russian government
