1) The whole team were totally new to politics and thought it was just like doing business, you use whatever advantage you can get to win.

2) This is the way they conducted their real estate and other businesses all their lives. Donald Trump has always made up the rules to fit his needs, and his sons learned their lessons at daddy's knee. Trump has always been a ruthless businessman, and back stabbing and deal making were his norms. Why should this be any different, just because the information was being offered by an adversary ?

3) None of them are very bright. All anyone has to do is listen to any of them speak, and you realize you are not dealing with the sharpest knives in the drawer. I think a large part of it is that the Russians simply were smarter and used them all. The Russians are very good at outwitting others, and they got Trump and the kids hook, line, and sinker.

4) Donald Trump and his sons are arrogant as Hell. They have always done what they wanted, to whom they wanted, and have never been taken to task for any of it. Why should they worry about a few little conversations with the Russians ?
5) Trump Sr thinks he's smarter than everyone else, as part of his personality trait. He thought he'd outsmart everyone and get away with colluding with Russia. He figured everyone else was too dumb to catch him. And that he'd simply lie if caught and get away with it, because he didn't think anyone would be smart enough to tie everything together.

6) In his private life, Trump Sr was accustomed to buying his way out of trouble with expensive attorneys and settlements with non-disclosure agreements. He's still using the expensive attorneys with Russiagate, but he can't settle Russiagate and can't force people into silence with non-disclosure agreements. This is the first time that he didn't have that crutch.

Three of Trump's campaign team have been arrested by the FBI so far, more to come.

So do you all think they purposely kept Pence out of the loop on this or did he just straight up lie on Fox and Friends.

I don't know any Trump supporters that are getting nervous. Most spend their time laughing about the desperation of the liberals. I always like to come by early for a good laugh at what is being posted. Laughter is good for the soul. Thank you all who continuously post about the impending impeachment of Trump!

The positive about this is this is the best they can do in their continued temper tantrum over Trump becoming POTUS. To think of this witch hunt they have going in comparison to mining for gold, yet another case where all they have found is "fool's gold". But, I am sure they will keep digging!

Deflection - If you deflect something such as criticism, you act in a way that prevents it from being directed toward you or affecting you.

It's an ethical, moral thing. They lied about working with Wikileaks. Remember -- it's the lying that bothers people.

Speaks to character -- or should I say lack of character.
Speaks to the same swampy nature, character that Trumps pretended they were too good for.
