So the Trump voters voted for the Russian/Republican candidate. Surely now they don't think of themselves a good Americans!

"The report puts the panel at odds with Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee...." The House Republicans on that committee are spineless shills trying to cover this up like a bunch of cats in a litter box trying to cover their stench. They have put party over country in order to pander to those gullible and in denial over the Russian candidate.
*
"Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!" Trump tweeted" Count on the Russian puppet to try to ignore the conclusions of our 17 intelligence agencies, the intelligence agencies of our allies, the Senate Intelligence Committee, and still be either stupid or venal enough to believe or pretend to believe his controller. The sad part is that so many Americans, many of whom make the welkin ring with their "patriotic" screams of outrage over black football players taking a knee, are going to go along with this sham.
*
Trump says "So many questions, so much corruption!" Any thinking person would have to agree with his projection here.
*
"But the Senate report said the intelligence community's assessment of Russian interference didn't rely on the dossier because it contained unverified information." The House used the dossier as a red herring and a straw man, one which the Trump cultists devoured with single-minded blindness.
*
Can't wait for the usual Russian bots to come on here today to bluster for their Russian candidate. They, and the House Republicans, have sold their souls to Russia for political power here.

All indicators are that Russia did meddle in the 2016 with a bent towards favoring Trump. Granted, the Clinton campaign and the DNC were sloppy in how they dealt with online assets and should have had a better team in place. Regardless, the fact that a foreign government, albeit a hostile one to several American ideologies, meddled in the election should trouble our Congress AND our president to the point of taking steps to prevent it.
...
Instead, we get much of the same sloppy behavior by the Trump administration and feckless representatives who are more concerned about being invited to the cool kids parties than serving their constituents. Sen. Cotton is one of the worst, continuing to attempt to build his resume in hopes of either a cabinet position or preparing for his own presidential bid in 2024. Secretly, I bet he's hoping for a Trump impeachment so he has a shot at the cool houses in DC, either the WH or the Naval Observatory.
...
Russia continues to meddle, including recent social media campaigns targeting mass shooting reactions or other national issues. These are just keeping the lines warm and the hackers trained in the run-up to the 2018 mid-terms.

Seems fair since we meddled in Putin's reelection.

The answer to itried's question is, in hiding. They cannot handle the truth. That's why they watch the likes of Fox, and pay attention to their Russian Bots. I could say more, but I'll wait.
