We are repeatedly told that Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, and the possibility the Trump campaign may have met with the Russians to gain an advantage over Hillary Clinton, is shocking, unprecedented, and criminal to its core.
Could the Russians have been trying to influence American politicians -- including the Clintons--long before Donald Trump ever enetered the nation's political picture? It's beginning to appear as though the Russian government was doing just that...with the help of the Obama administration.
There's a bit of controversy in the air over special counsel Robert Mueller's multiple grand jury investigation into possible contacts between the Trump presidential campaign and the Russian government. Is this a fishing expedition? Can Mueller exceed his mandate and investigate whatever he wants?
