I've been thinking about something for a few days.

I can see an ending to the ugly rule of the Repukes via Putin. IMO, at a certain point, those he has corrupted are no longer going to be useful to him and Putin will destroy them.

IMO, this present nightmare is gonna end, end ugly for those US pols Putin has under his thumb, but it's gonna end.

Just like any mob boss -- when someone is no longer useful, they are no longer.

Putin's goal is to create chaos in the US all the time. If he had any hand in the 2018 election (Big IF), then what would be more chaotic than to assist the Democrats in winning the House, knowing that his Orange Boy would get himself impeached.

Good Grief! I need to get off this Conspiracy Theory Train!

But when Putin is finished with them, he will indeed "let them go".

it will mean he doesn’t need them anymore...he will have succeeded in taking the US without firing a shot. We will be America no more. We’re well on our way there already.

of his own exposure. He will expose them before they can do the same to him.

IMO, Putin will do this because his plot did not succeed and he fears loose lips.

He might get rid of those that helped at first, but he has a large number of republicans on his side already, and he’ll get more as time goes on and as America is circling the toilet bowl on its way to being Russia II.
