All of the above is beside the dossier passed along by the British government detailing the collusion between the Kremlin and Donald Trump last December. It alleges the existence of a sophisticated Russian programme of “cultivating, supporting and assisting” Trump as he campaigned for the presidency. Trump has of course dismissed the allegations as “fake news.” Indeed, fake news within a fake and intellectually bankrupt presidency.
