The story that should be dominating the news

It's been perhaps rather difficult keeping on top of just how extraordinary his campaign has been - but, as we've seen, even what has received widespread publicity just hasn't, in the end, been of all that much interest to his voters. He's been quite clear about how friendly he is with Putin - to put in mildly - and the story of his links to Alfa Bank was made public, though quite late in the election. Perhaps that's really the Republican triumph: choose one single story, and just keep pounding away at that same drum, day after day - it worked, as there was more press attention paid to "Clinton's emails" than any other aspect of the whole election, despite the core of the matter being very weak sauce to begin with, let alone with nothing criminal involved, after no shortage of investigation.

Yep, how curious that this isn't being talked about...
