What about "Life in Fascist America" or "The Fake Presidency"?

What's going on right now is truly unprecedented. It's quite clear the intelligence community believes 1) Trump and the GOP Congress were elected with, at minimum, massive cooperation from Russia, and 2) there's no reason for confidence that any current elected branch will do anything but attempt to cover this up. Reports are flying around the blogo-/Twittersphere that in another time you'd dismiss as loony-brained conspiracy, but which can't be ruled out, given the extraordinary circumstances in which we've already found ourselves. (Take a look at Louise Mensch's Carolina Conspiracy article -- it's out-there, but eerily plausible.)
And fuck me if I can see a normal way out of this. Impeach Trump? Get rid of Pence, too, because he benefited from the illegality? Then you're left with Paul Ryan, who at best turned a blind eye to all this, at worst collaborated (and, like all Republicans, was helped at the ballot box by the corruption of the election -- a corruption whose depth is difficult to ascertain). You'd have to go levels deep in the GOP to find anyone who wasn't advantaged by the Russian interference.
If we had a parliamentary system, the solution would be simple: dissolve the government and call new elections. The stability of the American system, which has served us well for 240 years, suddenly offers no just solution to all. The Trump candidacy has broken the country.
Some of you might be reading this and saying, Gee, Mister Tee used to be all rational and restrained; has he gone off the deep end? My response is, look around the Internet and see how many professionally rational/restrained commentators are getting to the same place. This is uncharted territory.

Not sure I agree with you, because this appears to be coming from CIA sources. They make a much more dangerous enemy than disgruntled Democrats.
