President Donald Trump's rantings against the Mueller investigation have intensified, leading most to wonder if an innocent man would protest so much? Because the inappropriate attacks are so over the top, I began to wonder if the collusion might go beyond just political support for the 2016 election, but might mean that Trump sold his soul (and ours) to the Russians.

Most of us, even if we had $1 billion, would not even think about pursuing more money, but greed is a disease like gambling. What if Putin offered Trump $100 billion in money, gold, and real estate to deliver the U.S. to Russia? The road map to deliver: sow hate and division among the American people. Done, check.

Attack and undermine American institutions like the FBI, CIA, and the Justice Department. Check. Abdicate leadership in and support of NATO. Done. Alienate U.S. allies. Check. Create chaos in the Executive branch. Check. Undermine the Joint Chiefs of Staff for our military by replacing experience with inexperience. Underway.

Create discord in western trade and environmental agreements by trashing or terminating those agreements. Attack or destroy nuclear proliferation agreements. Ongoing. Create distractions such as immigration and walls, and finally, prematurely back out of a long, hard, successful effort in Syria against ISIS, with Putin's thanks.

Perhaps Trump is just faking incompetence and stupidity. Maybe he was born in St. Petersburg?
