The Issue Is Not Russian Conversations
Conversations between presidential candidate teams and foreign governments are a violation of the Logan Act, but the fact that the CIA, FBI and NSA have released no substantial evidence to their claims has caused a great disconnect between capitol hill, the media and most importantly, the public. Without evidence, and a sclerotic inability to adjust, representatives like Maxine Waters, Joaquin Castro and former DNC chairperson (and ultimate betrayer) Debra Wasserman-Schultz have already begun to entertain thoughts of impeachment.
The Dems Will Regret These Choices
There is a hysteria among democrats right now that is creating a lot of confusion. The left ceaselessly clamoring for more leaks, more dirt, giving the deep state more power and encouraging negative public opinion towards Russian/Trump – is antithetical to the stance one would normally take since the day Edward Snowden confirmed the surveillance state in which we live. Yet under scrutiny, people recognize this for the myopic resistance hysteria that it is.
It’s Not Fake News, But It Is Biased
For months, news organizations relentlessly point to Russian conversations as the issue that may lead to impeachment. Kucinich, sees a more sinister backdrop:
“What’s at the core of this is an effort by some in the intelligence community to upend any positive relationship between the U.S. and Russia,” Kucinich said. And in his opinion, there is a big money motive behind it. “There are people trying to separate the U.S. and Russia so that this military industrial intel axis can cash in.”
Kucinich and few others clearly understand that everyone’s first loyalty must be to the integrity of the system. Right now, we see very little of that.
“There’s a game going on inside the intelligence community where there are those who want to separate the U.S. from Russia in a way that would reignite the Cold War,” he said.
The military industrial complex sees a friendly relationship with Russia as hindrance to the bottom line. They see the Russian backed Syrian conflict as the next perpetual money making scheme that will keep arms sales peaking for years to come. The U.S. recently orchestrated the largest arms sales sale in U.S. history with Saudi Arabia.
Trumps Ham Handed Reactions Only Make Things Worse
Each day President Trump reminds us of how inept he is at handling even the most basic governmental tasks, often making matters worse by instigating the deep state to withdraw even further. On Wednesday, Mr. Trump castigated the intelligence agencies and the news media, blaming them for Mr. Flynn’s downfall.
“The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ‘intelligence’ like candy. Very un-American!” Mr. Trump tweeted.
Yet, public contradictions are nothing new to Trump – leaks included:

Very little pick-up by the dishonest media of incredible information provided by WikiLeaks. So dishonest! Rigged system!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 12, 2016
Who Will Prevail?
Impeachment is not out of the question, but beware, there are some on the right (particularly of the aggressively white male brand) for whom this would be a welcome scenario:

Scaling Down Trumps Involvement Is Dubious At Best
The Intelligence community seems to have grown impatient with Trump’s contrasting views, stating “Mr. Trump doesn’t immerse himself in intelligence information, and it isn’t clear that he has expressed a desire to know sources and methods.”
The intelligence agencies have been told to dramatically pare down the president’s daily intelligence briefing, both the number of topics and how much information is described under each topic, an official said. Compared with his immediate predecessors, Mr. Trump so far has chosen to rely less on the daily briefing than they did.
