That is still possible now, if their is actually any crime to be prosecuted.


"Conversations between Flynn and Kislyak accelerated after the Nov. 8 vote as the two discussed establishing a back channel for communication between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin that could bypass the U.S. national security bureaucracy, which both sides considered hostile to improved relations, four current U.S. officials said."

I'm certain now that Donald Trump has been trying to "improve" relations with Russia by easing sanctions for that sweet sweet money.

*EDIT:

I mean House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said it best...
"I'll guarantee you that's what it is... The Russians hacked the DNC and got the opp research that they had on Trump."
"There's two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump."
"Swear to God."


I like Ryan's defense though. "I'm only pretending to be retarded"
