This is the narrative that Trump's minions have adopted. Whenever you bring up Trump/Russia collusion, they always refer to this: "Your side lost. Russia is just an excuse for your butthurt."

My retort to the Trump faithful: If it was really just about Dems looking for an excuse for their loss, then why did...

• The Director of the FBI, Jim Comey, a REPUBLICAN up until a few months ago, confirm it?

• The Director of the CIA last year, John Brennan, an Independent, NOT A DEMOCRAT, confirm it?

• Your own CIA Director, Mike Pompeo, a REPUBLICAN, confirm it?

• Your own Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coates, a REPUBLICAN, confirm it?

• The Director of the NSA, Mike Rogers, an Independent, NOT A DEMOCRAT, confirm it?

• Why did several of the above Directors either imply or confirm that Trump asked them to scuttle the investigation?

• Why did Trump fire Director Comey after Comey declined to drop the investigation?

• Why did Trump admit that the Russia investigation was what motivated him to fire Comey?

• Why did none of the remaining fourteen intelligence agencies dispute the CIA, FBI, NSA analysis?

• Why did Trump threaten to fire his own Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, a STAUNCH REPUBLICAN, for recusing himself from the investigation?

• Why did the U.S. House of Representatives vote 419 to 3 to sanction Russia for hacking our election?

• Why did the U.S. Senate vote 98 to 2 to sanction Russia for hacking our election?

That's some "Democratic excuse" they pulled off!
