Dan Rather Writes

  The questions are obvious. The answers are wanting. We the American people deserve to know what in God's name is happening. Our legal system demands a presumption of innocence until the evidence proves otherwise. But the evidence is piling up.

  I have been around a long time. I like to think I have seen a lot. But the revelations of the emails that set up the meeting between Donald Trump. Jr. - and let us not forget both Paul Manafort and Jarod Kushner - with an agent of the Russian government is unlike anything I could even have imagined. There is still a lot that we do not know. But only a hypocrite, a cynic or a fool could argue that this development can be innocuously explained.

  It is like a carnival mirror is being held up to American democracy, distorting everything we thought we knew into grotesque new shapes. We need a reality check. This is decision time, especially for our elected officials. Which side of history will you be on?
