Good for Rachel in keeping her eye on the ball and reminding all of us that THIS is the most important story and that everything else is just background noise.
Though clearly there are those who wish that journalists don't pick up on that.
This is why Maddow's ratings and her audiences continue to grow.
Along these same lines it should be noted that even if some members of the press have turned to other things, the investigation continues forward.

CBS News has learned that U.S. investigators are looking into whether Trump campaign representatives had a role in helping Russian intelligence as it carried out cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee and other political targets in March 2016.
This new information suggests that the FBI is going back further than originally reported to determine the extent of possible coordination. Sources say investigators are probing whether an individual or individuals connected to the campaign intentionally or unwittingly helped the Russians breach Democratic Party targets.
In March 2016, both Mr. Trump and Hillary Clinton had emerged as their parties’ most likely nominees.
According to a declassified intelligence assessment, it was in March when Russian hackers “began cyber operations aimed at the U.S. election.” In May, U.S. officials say the Russians had stolen “large volumes of data from the DNC.”
March is significantly earlier than early summer, which is when we had previously been told possible collusion may have begun.
And I would suggest that the FBI did not get to March without a trail of evidence to lead them there.
This does not sound like the FBI just throwing things against the wall to see what will stick, this sounds like something that would result from digging deep only to discover they have just barely scratched the surface.
