Collusion!

In the post Burn in Hell, commie pinko!, I had linked to an article from The Federalist discussing Ted Kennedy's courting of the Soviets to destabilize (sitting) President Reagan's foreign policy so as to help Kennedy's electoral challenge to Reagan in 1984 (*).

Turns out, Kennedy had *also* tried to pull the same trick against (sitting) President Carter in 1980 (**) -- DailyWire: 5 Times Democrats Tried To Work With The Russians [and Soviets] To Swing Elections

(*) As did (Democrat) Speaker of the House "Tip" O'Neill that same election cycle.

(**) Amusingly, that same year, President "Carter tried to work with the Soviets during the 1980 election to improve his chances against [challenger] Ronald Reagan."

What's a poor Soviet dictator to do when his "useful idiots" act like such useless idiots?

===========
There are *reasons* that the Partisans of the Ass are rightly called "the Party of Treason".

I'm not sure I understand the point of your posting. Are you saying that because the Democrats did it, it's OK when the Trump administration does the same thing? Or are you saying it's only treason when the Democrats do it, but if Republicans do it, there's nothing wrong?

The main point is the God-damned hypocrisy of the Partisans of the Ass.

The secondary point is that:
a) whatever "the Trump Administration" may have done (*), it was not treasonous;
b) whereas, what various Democrats did *was* treasonous.

(*) going by the very sketchy (ahem) "evidence" that the Partisans of the Ass, both in the media and out, have presented.
