@willpayton: Trump had no intention of being a civil servant. Putin has built up dictators through Manafort before. He shapes leaders who will guarantee more leg room to flex his power. Remember, ex Ukrainian president Yanukovych is in exile for crimes against his people. His political rival Yulia Tymoshenko was jailed and survived brutalities our prisoners only dream of.
Trump not wanting the presidency is conjecture. He is president. This was going to play out the way Putin wanted it. The accrual of power for Trump guarantees more wealth as he never divested. He could only launder so much dirty Russian money in the private sector. There is the incentive.
Trump will be impeached. That's the important thing.
