There is nothing like historical context to help evaluate and better understand current events. So, in regard to the mainstream medias breathless, non-stop coverage of the self-levitating Trump-Russia collusion theory, consider this bit of trivia:
In 1991, when Russian President Boris Yeltsin opened the archives of the Soviet Central Committee, Western researchers quickly descended on Moscow to plow through the treasure trove of previously classified official documents.
Among those researchers was Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times and the BBC who found a May 14, 1983 letter from KGB chief Viktor Chebrikov to Soviet General Secretary Yuri Andropov. Bearing the highest security classification, it summarized a confidential offer by Senator Ted Kennedy to the Soviet leadership to help stop President Ronald Reagans aggressive, anti-Soviet defense policies.
The letter was written as the debate was heating up over Reagans proposed deployment of intermediate range missiles to counter the Soviets medium range weapons in Eastern Europe.
Sebastian reported his find in an article titled Teddy, the KGB and the top secret file which appeared in the February 2, 1992, London Times.

He’s still dead, right??
Kennedy didn't get to meet Andropov in 83' but Samantha Smith did.
That would be the lefts 'Children's Crusade' of the 80's for nuclear disarmament.
I MC’d a speech by former Novasti Press/KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov when he came to town. He commented that he “HANDLED” Teddy Boy on that trip to Moscow to enlist Soviet help in preventing Reagan from becoming President. He also commented that one of his main tasks during Teddy’s “visit” was to “keep him in booze and broads”.
The original David Hogg.
More truth about the disgusting whale of the Senate!
And there was no need to blackmail him as he was a willing traitor to the USA. What a despicable person Ted Kennedy was!
Yup. She was on 'Nightline' with Ted Koppel and even the Johnny Carson show.
80's media circus you couldn't avoid pushing for nuclear disarmament.
They followed her around the Soviet Union with breathless reports of what she thought.
She didn't actually get to meet Andropov, he had already fallen ill and she had to settle for a phone call.
She was killed in a plane crash in 85' otherwise you would have heard much, much more out of her.
Some conspiracy theories at the time for that, pushed by the Soviets.
It just goes to show, there’s nothing new under the Sun.
Democrat commie traitor... somethings never change...
Yes, but he still votes in Chicago...
Samantha Smith was such a threat that she was killed ,along with 7 others, in a plane crash to keep her quiet.
Being interviewed by Johnny Carson who was wishing she was Morgan Fairchild...
Ted Koppel doing that hard journalism that 'Nightline' is known for...
The Soviets dressed her up as a Soviet Pioneer. Apparently they hadn't 'pioneered' waxing unibrows yet.
An honorary young pioneer.
And John Kerry negotiated directly with the communists in Paris and in Nicaragua AGAINST the sitting US president and US State Dept.
Why did he get booted out of the army during the Korean war?
>> the mainstream medias breathless, non-stop coverage
The nondescript MSM... name the parent companies, Parry.
That stamp came out after she was killed in the commuter plane crash.
The Soviets even named a ship after her.
