We are All Nancy Drew Now!

I have a good friend who is grouchy - easily annoyed and complaining. She's been grouchy since November 2016. Our new President has not made America Great Again, but he has made my good friend very grouchy. He has also captured our brains. It's not good, not fair, not a good use of a brain, but as Kurt Vonnegut wrote often in "Slaughterhouse Five," - "So it goes."

Anyway, Josh Marshall over at Talking Point Memo is one the finest brains in America that has been completely obsessed with the story of our last election. TPM's new Investigative Team starts business today. And just what will they be investigating? The story of our time. We still all want to know the answers to these questions...

1. What did Russia do during the 2016 election?

2. Why did Russia seek to elect Donald Trump?

3. Was Trump an unwitting beneficiary or did Russia’s help grow out of a relationship with the Russian government or Russian nationals in which President Trump or his close associates were active participants? Did Trump or his close associates have inside knowledge of Russian subversion campaign? Put most broadly, if Russia conspired to subvert the 2016 election, was Trump or his close associates party to that conspiracy?

4. What is the nature of President Trump’s current relationship with Russia?
