Russians have two kinds of agents; paid, knowing agents, and what the call cooperative idiots.  Trump is probably the latter.  Whichever the case, impeachment is necessary.

It's not over until Trump is out.  "Getting over it" means surrendering our democracy.

... surrendering what's left, what little remains of our version of Democracy in exchange for our corporatUSt$' democrUSy: government of, by and for Untited States' plutocracy.

According to the Independent (UK), the U.S. has slipped from being classed as a full democracy to a flawed democracy as judged by the E. I. U. a think tank. 

"The US scored 7.98 again in 2017, placing it behind 19 full democracies including Norway, Ireland, the UK, Uruguay and Spain.

Now ranking 21st, the US was among other countries with flawed democratic systems including Italy, South Korea, France, Chile, Botswana and Mexico."

This deterioration was based on 60 characteristics of a full democracy like confidence in elections, functioning of government and freedom of the press.  It further warned that the U.S. is slipping toward a full authoritarian government "unless Donald Trump can stop it."

Fat chance of Trump doing that.

We need to return to the mid 20th century when Democrats and Republican Members of Congress played golf and went to lunch together, improve our election process by allowing everyone to vote regardless of race or creed, and reward investigative journalism.

Doing all of this would require at least one branch of government that was fully functional, and the restoration of the independence of institutions.
