He Just Keeps Picking at It

The fun thing about Trump campaign collusion with Russia is that it is such a lovely tribute to Edgar Allen Poe. The "hiding in plain sight" nature of the relationship is a call-back to "The Purloined Letter". And you might call digital outburst like this "The Tell Tale Tweets":

                                "Villains!" I shrieked, "dissemble no more! I admit the deed!—tear up the planks!  here, here!—It is the beating of his hideous heart!"

I've noticed the similarity as well. I wrote a satire post that no one got, but everyone who read it said it sounded like the "Telltale Heart." And I realized it really did!

His obsession is also factually inaccurate, as President Obama put sanctions on Russia related to the election meddling - sanctions which Trump's guys were talking to Russia about eliminating even before the inauguration.

I know, I know: I shouldn't bother to get down in the tall weeds about something so transparently ridiculous, but I still feel compelled to mention the , you know, truth.
