And all of a sudden the Trump-Russia connections are all over the news. But these are not news; the basics have been known for two years, and all that has been done is filling in the details. Which is important, but why is it suddenly worth headlines, when it was not before the election, or early in Trump's term, when it might have made a difference?
Near as I can figure, the answer is that the owners of the big media corporations have noticed that Trump is a threat. Too late, suckers!
