How is it a Russia charade? Trump, his sons, his campaign manager, and many others in the Trump team met with Russian officials on many established occasions and coordinated with them (and Wikileaks, as we saw today in the revelations about Donald Trump, Jr. and his emails) on the release of hacked Hillary Clinton emails. Donald Trump publicly asked Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's emails. Russia hacked and released her emails and ran sophisticated web campaigns, on twitter and facebook, etc. in support of Trump and against Clinton. What more is needed for proof?
