Has Trump’s entire team been compromised by Putin?
If so everyone who continues to support him is complicit.

This information is not new.
The New York Times and other American news media outlets were aware of reports about Russian tampering in the 2016 election as well as an ongoing federal investigation of Trump – his advisers and other representatives.

Decades of bullying by the right-wing media and movement conservatives would pay great dividends.

This in conjunction with other factors almost certainly cost her the election.
In all the Republican Party and its voters have abandoned their Cold War bona fides and their (somewhat exaggerated) reputation as die-hard enemies of Russia and the former Soviet Union.
To borrow from the language of spy craft it would seem that they have been “flipped” by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
