Oh my. Sharp-eyed CNBC reporter Christina Wilkie noticed that in a photo of the written prepared remarks of Trump's lame rollback of his catastrophic Helsinki news conference, there was a line that was crossed out. But it wasn't crossed out all the way, you could still see what it said in the image.
Here's a close-up (flipped 180 degrees so the text is right-side-up):
It says, "Anyone involved in that meddling to justice." (Obviously, the words "should be brought to" can be interpolated there.) So now we know that Trump specifically does not want to see the people who attacked the U.S. brought to justice. Gee, I wonder why.
On a not-wholly-unrelated note, former CIA director John Brennan pointed out that having a private meeting with Putin on his home turf with no one else in the room might not have been the brightest thing Donald Trump has ever done because Putin may have recorded the private conversation (gee, ya think?) and Trump may have said something stupid (gee, ya think?) that Putin can now use as leverage against him.
(This just occurred to me: Trump's lawyers are fighting tooth and nail to keep him from having to talk to Robert Mueller because they just know that if he does Trump will say something stupid. But they were on board with having him give two hours to Vladimir Putin behind closed doors? What were they thinking?)
A worst-case scenario is starting to look frighteningly plausible.
