The Other Russia Collusion Scandal Is Breaking Wide Open.
In 2016, Vladimir Putin reaped two of his greatest foreign policy triumphs in quick succession.

If an online fraudster persuades you, through lies and trickery, to part with your money, would you refrain from trying to get it it back? After all, you clicked the 'pay' button and Pay means Pay, yes? In fact, you'd have to refuse a refund because that would be undermining your right to make your own financial decisions. I certainly hope nobody who opposes a 2nd referendum has ever reclaimed PPI..
