President Donald Trump campaigned with a slogan that he’d “drain the congressional swamp.” Yet, when confronted over presidential candidates taking information from a foreign country trying to interfere with an American election, Trump recently justified his behavior this way: “When you go and talk, honestly, to congressmen, they all do it, they always have, and that’s the way it is.”

Not only did he not drain the swamp, he jumped in with both feet.
