For more than two years U.S. politicians, the media and some bloggers hyped a conspiracy theory claiming Russia had somehow colluded with the Trump campaign to get him elected.
Finally the conspiracy theory has run out of steam. Russiagate is finished :
Russiagate created a lot of damage. It was used to install censorship on social media. It was used to undermine the election of progressive Democrats. The weapon salesmen used it to push for more NATO aggression against Russia. Maria Butina, an innocent Russian woman interested in good relation with the United States, was held in solitary confinement (recommended) until she signed a paper which claims that she was involved in a conspiracy.
In a just world the people who for more then two years hyped the conspiracy theory and caused so much damage would be pushed out of their public positions.
