If the US & Russia spy on each other, who gives a hoot? That’s how their kind of politics is done. If capitalists can’t trust each other, distrust is how the system works. If Trump & his minions make unsavory financial deals with Putin & the oligarchs, that’s how capitalism operates in its period of decay.

The problem with Trump’s backdoor dealings with Russia is not backstabbing the CIA or FBI but the deals made at the expense of Russian, American, Syrian, & other working people. That’s where the treason comes in. That’s why capitalism stinks. The governments work at odds with us, not for us.
