It's now confirmed that this was commissioned by the body charged with defeating the GOP candidate.
Actually, it's confirmed that it was commissioned by one GOP primary candidate to defeat another GOP primary candidate. It was then shopped to the body charged with defeating the GOP general election candidate.
It's confirmed that there's no possible objectivity to it, in addition to there being no proof.
Well, except for all the parts that were corroborated.
the DNC didn't even use it during the campaign?
The President wanted to make a speech outing Russian involvement in October, but Mitch McConnell threatened to declare the whole thing nothing more than a partisan attack, so they held off in order to avoid damaging the legitimacy of the electoral system.

The Trump administration is overdue to report to Congress on how they're going to enact the sanctions against Russia. Not at all suspicious, though. Just another coincidence.

You have to be a conspiratorial loon to think there's anything in the least bit indicative of a compromising relationship here.

The Federalist is not upset at Trump, but disappointed that he has bad judgement and hangs out with the wrong crowd. This reads exactly like a Hillary apologia with the name changed out.

Even if the FBI found a contract between Putin and Trump, signed in their (verified by DNA) own blood, the Trumpistas wouldn't budge.

Depends on how narrowly you scope "Trumpistas."

Some of them will never budge. But Nixon left office with an approval rate of 25%. That's low, but it's still a quarter of the country.

You don't need to budge the hard-core Trumpers. You need to budge the people who don't really like Trump but at least he's a Republican.

His approval rating right now is in the high thirties. If it drops below thirty or so he's at serious risk of impeachment. That's probably about the point at which the Republican legislators see more downside in protecting him than in distancing themselves.

"Flight 93" logic -eta and the result of last November that took everyone but Bill Mitchell and Scott Adams by surprise - says that GOPers won't bail on Trump until they or he or both actually lose re-election. The only way Trump gets impeached is if the House flips to Dems, and the only way he gets convicted is if it takes no more than 7-8 GOP senators plus a unified Dem caucus to get to 67 votes.

Correct. First term impeachment remains highly unlikely.
