Austrian Government Falls as Right-Wing Partner Caught Offering to Fix Contracts In Undercover Sting

There'a RUSSIAN COLLUSION angle here -- or at least a pretended one.

The right-wing party was not the majority party, but its votes were necessary to prop up its larger partner and give it a large enough coalition to govern.

Austria raced on Saturday toward a snap election as Chancellor Sebastian Kurz pulled the plug on his coalition with the far right after its leader was caught on video offering to fix state contracts with a woman posing as a Russian oligarch's niece.

The far-right Freedom Party's Heinz-Christian Strache resigned as vice chancellor and party leader after the video was released by two German news organizations. He acknowledged that the video was "catastrophic" but denied breaking the law.

So, it's not that hard to catch someone making deals with (presumed) Russians if the targets are actually inclined to do so.

And yet Muller and Kristol and Glenn Simpson and all the coupists and conspirators have bubkis on Trump.

Seems to me to be circumstantial evidence that there was no Russian collusion, and there never was.
