The second act of the Trump-Putin farce seems to be playing out faster 
than the first act, but following the same general trajectory: apparent 
revelations followed by exaggerated interpretation followed by a subdued 
debunking, all of it somehow giving weight to what, in the end, has 
never been much more than a matter of speculation. The theory is that 
Russian President Vladimir Putin is actively trying to bring Donald 
Trump to office and in fact has direct ties to the onsandidate. The 
evidence is scant, but the assumption is strong. The reality-based world 
view is further weakened and American political culture is the loser.
