The hashtag #KremlinKevin trended on Twitter after users pointed out that Rudy Giuliani’s indicted associate Lev Parnas donated money to the “Kevin McCarthy for Congress” committee.
Actually it was over $9,000.00 in donations which we can all logically assume originated in Russia.
Which if true opens McCarthy up to all kinds of potential campaign finance violations.
And just what do the Russians get for the money they secretly donate to McCarthy?
Well this for starters.
The FBI broke into President Trump’s campaign, spied on him, then tried to cover it up.
This is a modern-day Watergate. pic.twitter.com/7YfyARPIlr

All of that is completely untrue of course, but hey, that it exactly the kind of misinformation that the Kremlin pays big to those willing to spread it on their behalf, and on behalf of their asset Donald Trump.
