MONTPELIER, Vt. -- Some seem to think that believing the Russia-Trump collusion story was horse manure means you cannot be critical of Trump's policies thus far. You're drinking the kool aid. 

Nothing could be further from the truth. There's plenty of things to be critical of President Trump about that are concrete. But the Russia-Trump collusion narrative was always a political witch-hunt without evidence. Trump-Russia is about the Democrats doing what Republicans fail to do. It's Democrat's refusing to accept the election results and seeking to stall Trump's agenda.

It's a way to blunt whatever political capital Trump amassed with the election. In a word, it's Democrat's trying to win even after they lost an election and lost it badly. 

It's politics, nothing more.
