When He's Right He's Right

I'm not with Trump on Russia. But he campaigned and won on mending ties with the Russians. He has a popular mandate to do so, and he can use whatever tools are in the toolbox to do it.

This is not so much an attack on Trump for being careless, as an attack on the President for implementing the foriegn policy he promised. If we are a government of the people, by the people, and for the people, the people get to blow off the consensus of Washington bureaucrats by subordinating them to a hostile Head of State. If they remain defiant, as a matter of principle, then the way is open for them t
o resign and go sell shoes. The way is not open to violate the Espionage Act.

Every bad consequence being listed from these leaks is due to the criminal leaks to the press and not Trump's statesmanship. ISIS is not learning it has been violated through Putin.

I disagree with being a warm pal of Putin. But I have sense enough to know that we must persuade the majority of America that we are right, instead of just frustrating them with underhanded leaks and slanders. A criminal conspiracy will not launch our views into the Oval Office.
