Phil Giraldi makes the case that the Russiagate investigation was not simply a good faith effort to ensure then-candidate Trump was not an agent of the Russian government, but a legitimate plot to ruin his chances at the presidency by insiders connected to the Clinton campaign who hoped to benefit from her victory. The hatred of Trump is so strong that many democrats still believe him to be guilty despite the Mueller report’s conclusion to the contrary, not to mention policies from Trump that have actually been very anti-Russian.
