Remember the fear that Trump was workings for Putin? that has sort of been lost in the Shuffle,Perhaps Trump's planned Saturday night wrestling match with Putin on National Smack down drew our attention away. Some might think hostility over the attack on Assuad's base proves Trump is not Pautin's Pawn? It is unrealistic to think Trump is a real agent for Moscow. I never actually thought that. I did think he may have been manipulated into helping them as the recipient of their messing with the election without having to do anything for them. That would still make him beholden to them. All of the possibilities are still poem. They are still being investigated nothing has really been taken off the docket.
A Russian agent really was trying to recruit an American business man Carter Page. That we for a fact. That same Carter page became foreign policy advisory to Trump. That is also a fact.
Somehow the Russian attempts gained notice by the FBI they began watching Page with the supposition that he might be an agent:
From the Russia trip of the once-obscure Mr. Page grew a wide-ranging investigation, now accompanied by two congressional inquiries, that has cast a shadow over the early months of the Trump administration. At a House Intelligence Committee hearing last month, the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, took the unusual step of publicly acknowledging the investigation of Russian interference in the election, which he said included possible links between Russia and Trump associates.Even at that point Trump's then campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was already under criminal investigation for reconfigure money from pro Russian group supporting Putin in Ukraine. That would have helped Trump's campaign there's a connection, Wili leaks had already started postimng emials obtained by Russian intelligence from Democratic party, That clearly helped trump win, These are facts, 
It's odd that the Russians sought to help Trump, you would think they would dread having the conservative in office, The KG B actually tired to sway the election against Reagan in 1982 (the 1984 election)  Putin blames the US for it's long string of anti-communist electiopm tamperimng and backimg of converter metabolites,some in Soviet block, and the Arab Spring and lames Sec of state Clinton for anti-Putin machinations why would he not see the more conservative Trump as moreof the same? Could there be a connection in Trump's pick for secretary of state, (Tillerson) a business contact who had been awarded honors by Putin? The New Yorker's article is a must read fopr understanding the Russia connection. 
In seeking to understand where we are so far in discovery we cam;t overlook the Washington post's article. That article lays it all out in vast panorama with charts shoeing the huge complex collusion of Team Trump imn Russian connections, Just a very small sample: The article goes on with a vast layout listing the players on the team and their involvement. The Russian connection is already as complex as Watergate.
