Someday some competent, uncompromised journalist will write the story on the extent of Merkel's collaboration with Russia. One has to believe that eventually the truth will come out. I just hope Merkel is still alive to see herself disgraced. She leaves the political scene next year and one can hope that happens on schedule. Too bad AKK resigned. She was too unseasoned and probably was submarined by Merkel. Maybe AKK will stage a comeback.
