Raw Story: One need not dabble in conspiracy theories to ask a simple question today: What should be done about Donald Trump having served as a Russian asset for the past four years?

In the wake of the recently revealed Russian cyberattack on the U.S. — apparently unprecedented in its danger to national security — it’s time for Congress, the media and the incoming Biden administration to move beyond the question of “if” Trump was helping his overt ally, Russian President Vladimir Putin. The relevant questions are why and how.
With the nation preoccupied with removing Trump from the White House without force, the timing might not seem ideal. But the results of Putin’s engagements with Trump are too many and too obvious: Someone needs to connect the dots.
Herr Drumph is a Russian asset. donnie's daddy Vladdy has hacked deep into our GOV computer net. MASSIVE BREACH. It's being called an act of WAR. The worst intelligence breach EVER. After Director of Cybersecurity Chris Krebs was fired. By trump. And, crickets from Donalt. https://t.co/0qfv6Wgfon

Today’s 24/7 news cycles are not suited for this task. They rely upon the instant gratification of breaking news stories as they present themselves, not analysis of how events might fit into a pattern of conduct. When Trump outrageously refused to condemn Russia this week for its massive hacking crime, the general reaction was puzzlement and outrage among the chattering class. It should have been a sense of confirmation followed by a timeline.
This cyber attack against us just confirms my belief that trump is a Russian asset and needs to be removed before 1/20. He must be investigated and, if necessary, be prosecuted. JB should make that a top priority. Forget unity, we must maintain our strength and world leadership.
