Donald Trump continued to throw cold water all over the US intelligence service that is adamant that Russians interfered in Election 2016 with indisputable evidence. Why is Trump doing this the day before he meets with Vladimir Putin?
The answer is twofold: 1) Trump is conflicted and most likely a colluder, and 2) Acknowledging Russian interference undermines his legitimacy. Putting himself first, he subordinates the nation and its citizens to suit him while failing his oath of office.
Reasonable Republicans, if they exist, will join Democrats in accelerating the impeachment of Donald Trump.

The President declined to state definitively that Russia meddled in the 2016 US election
Trump's skepticism of the intelligence community could have broader implications
(CNN)President Donald Trump still can't commit.
Nearly six months into his presidency, President Donald Trump declined yet again Thursday to state definitively that Russia meddled in the 2016 US election.
Trump said it might have been Russia, but he raised the prospect that it could have been others, too, clashing with the US intelligence community's assessment that Russian intelligence agencies interfered."
One day he will meet the evidence.
