Big news day yesterday as Paul Manafort was found guilty on 8 counts and Michael Cohen pleaded guilty and implicated Trump in a campaign finance violation. Manafort being Trump’s campaign chairman during one of the most pivotal parts of the campaign (when the RNC suddenly changed its tune on Russia and when Pence was selected VP). And Cohen being Trump’s attorney and cleanup guy since about 2006. Cohen was also the finance chairman of the Republican National Committee from 2017 to 2018.
There’s a lot of swamp to drain here.
The GOP is 100% compromised.
They are currently working with the Russians to steal another election.
Over the last few weeks Republican politicians in Congress have been meeting Russian politicians, inviting Russian politicians to Washington, a GOP Senator handed Putin a letter penned by President Trump, have blocked anti-Putin resolutions, and have refused to increase election security funding all the while Russian state media brazenly joke about having President Trump in their pocket.
4th of July, 2018 A group of Republican Senators travel to Moscow and meet Foreign Minister Lavrov. Russian state propaganda brazenly asserted that “Trump is ours,” and joke that the U.S. lawmakers traveled to Russia *“to make deals with our hackers, so they can rig the midterms in favor of Trump’s team.”*
The Eight: Sens. Richard C. Shelby (Ala.), Steve Daines (Mont.), John Hoeven (N.D.), John Neely Kennedy (La.), Jerry Moran (Kan.), John Thune (S.D.) and Ron Johnson (Wis.) , plus Rep. Kay Granger (Tex.).
TOP NRA CONTRIBUTIONS AMONG THESE SENATORS:
18th of July 2018 Congressional Republicans blocked a series of measures related to Russian interference, Republicans blocked anti-Putin resolutions.
In the Senate, Republicans objected to two nonbinding measures that would have put the body on record as being in support of intelligence agency conclusions that Russia interfered in the 2016 election, called on Mr. Trump to fully impose sanctions against Russia and pressed for oversight of the summit meeting, including the production of any notes taken by Americans.
…Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee voted down a request to subpoena testimony from the State Department interpreter who accompanied Mr. Trump into his private meeting with Mr. Putin in Helsinki, Finland. And on the House floor, Republicans blocked a Democratic effort to add hundreds of millions of dollars in grant funding for election security to a spending bill.
18th of July, 2018 House Republicans refuse to renew election security funding.
1st of August, 2018 Republican Senators block $250 million amendment for election security.
1st of August, 2018 In a joint press conference top Trump administration officials Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, FBI Director Chris Wray, National Security Advisor John Bolton, and NSA Director General Paul Nakasone accuse Russia of continuing their information warfare and election meddling against the United States of America.
6th of August, 2018 Republican Senator Rand Paul invites Russian politicians to Washington.
8th of August, 2018 Republican Senator Rand Paul visits Moscow and delivers a letter from President Trump to President Vladimir Putin.
The decisions made by Republican politicians in Congress have been outrageous. It should be noted that not every Republican in America supports the current GOP leadership’s ridiculous, complicit attitude towards Russian aggression. For example Rick Wilson, Steve Schmidt, and David Jolly have all been consistently calling out the Republican party – going so far as to publicly state that they won’t be voting for the GOP until things change.
It’s time to wake the fuck up and understand what’s really going on and stop pretending. Republicans have a plan to steal the 2018 election and are moving forward with it.
We need to vote overwhelmingly Democrat this cycle because there is a clear attack by Trump and Republicans on the constitution and the rule of law.
