Democratic Senator Chris Murphy has hit out at the GOP for propagating conspiracy theories regarding Ukraine, describing the party as an “important global asset” of the Russian intelligence services.

President Donald Trump and his Republican Party allies have come under fire for pushing a conspiracy theory alleging that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 presidential election in a bid to influence the race in favor of Hillary Clinton.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has made the same allegations, attempting to deflect the conclusions of U.S. intelligence services, Congress and special counsel Robert Mueller that Moscow directed a systematic campaign of interference in the 2016 election.

Despite all the evidence of Russian involvement and the lack of evidence of Ukrainian action, Trump and his allies have continued to spread the accusations.

On Sunday, Murphy expressed concern at the direction his colleagues across the aisle appear to be heading in. “Call me old fashioned, but I think it’s a little unsavory the Republican Party is becoming the most important global asset of Russian intel,” he tweeted.

He added, “I get it, Russia’s bonkers ‘Ukraine did it, not Russia’ story is all the GOP has to defend their guy, but really?”

We need more Democrats and Independents to say this out loud. 

Especially with the guy in the White House taking point:

You know I used to worry that if we made these accusations that we could all be accused of a modern-day McCarthyism, but the fact is that we simply can no longer ignore the fact that the GOP is doing the Kremlin’s bidding. 

Fiona Hill made this crystal clear in her testimony before Congress, and yet the Republicans seem as if they could not care less that they are now essentially Russian assets. 

I do not know how this plays out in the next ten years, but I do know that the tagline “I promise to work for the American people, not for Vladimir Putin” is going to be very helpful for Democrats running against Republican politicians in Washington.

    Trump said during a meeting with French President Macron, “There are countries that are not fulfilling their commitments. Maybe I will deal with them in a different way, I will work something out where they have to pay. We don’t want people to be delinquent. Including France, countries not paying their way, you know, less than 1%, you have a couple less than 1%, not fair.

    Barr appears ready to do to the highly anticipated IG report what he did to the Mueller report – smear it to Trump’s benefit.

    “the way the documents were first shared with the public on Reddit replicated a known tactic dubbed Secondary Infection.” – It all stemmed from a network of social-media accounts which Facebook confirmed “originated in Russia.” Gregoriator “It carries the specter of foreign influence.”

    FAT FUCK LUV FEST>”According to the memos, Christie told the FBI that he’d discussed the Mueller investigation with Trump over lunch on Valentine’s Day in 2017.

    “Now that we fired Flynn, the Russia thing is over,” Trump allegedly told Christie, referring to former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s removal from office.

    Flynn resigned on Feb. 13, 2017, after misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his conversations with Russia’s then-ambassador to the U.S. Flynn later pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI.

    Christie told investigators that he “laughed” at Trump’s suggestion that the Russia problem was behind them.

    “No way,” he recalled telling the president. “We’ll be here on Valentine’s Day 2018 talking about this.”

    Christie, a former federal prosecutor, said he went on to urge Trump to keep his head down as the probe into Russian interference ramped up.”

    Later during that same Valentine’s Day lunch, Trump allegedly asked Christie to speak with then-FBI Director James Comey ― who, at the time, was leading the bureau’s probe into Russian election interference ― and to tell him that Trump “really like[s] him.”

    BuzzFeed said Monday that the interview summaries are “some of the most important and highly sought-after documents from Mueller’s investigation.”

    ” Hicks warned that the story would be a big deal — Trump operatives meeting with Russians with the promise of “dirt” on Hillary Clinton looked very bad, even if there was nothing illegal in it. Kushner disagreed, dismissing the story.

    Then this happened, according to Mueller’s report: “The President did not want to talk about it and did not want the details.”
    “Trump wanted to maintain plausible deniability. He wanted to be able to say, effectively; I don’t know anything about that meeting.”
    “Except that we know that Trump was intimately involved in the response to the stories that were written about the Trump Tower meeting less than a month after that June 2017 meeting. In fact, he dictated the statement that was attributed to his son in response to the controversy stirred up by the revelations.”
    6/2/18>{Trump lawyers say he ‘dictated’ statement on Trump Tower meeting, contradicting past denials}
    “So, he didn’t want anything to do with it — except that he did have a lot to do with it! Put more accurately: Trump didn’t want people — even those who worked closely with him — to know he had something to do with all of the machinations in response to the Trump Tower meeting. But he did in fact, when time came, put himself squarely in the middle of it.”

    “I stand by the bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee investigation, which confirmed the Intelligence Committee’s assessment that it was Russia,” Warner said. “I stand by the Mueller report, which confirms that it was Russia that intervened. I stand by Mr. Trump’s appointees as head of the CIA, head of the FBI, director of national intelligence, who have all testified publicly that it was Russia.”

    “Lindsey Graham floats censure with Trump in London: Senate trial will be too ‘traumatic’ on ‘the country’”
    “Who am I to advise my Dem colleagues about what to do,” Graham reportedly said. “Censure would probably gain some bipartisan support… the country going through an impeachment trial would be traumatic and I think we should avoid that if possible.”<RawStory

      Oh right, we are still getting over the trauma of the Clinton impeachment.

      the only trauma is to the GOP and traitor trump because they are guilty of colluding with the enemy.

    The GOP, like lemmings, is heading for a cliff.

    I think it’s fair for some conservative writers, like Charlie Sykes and Matt Lewis, to characterize the Republicans as dupes and stooges or parroting the Kremlin line. But at some point, we must face what it means for Republicans to know the truth but to advance Kremlin lies anyway, even when doing so slowly burns down the republic. At some point soon, we must stop calling dupes, and start calling them the enemy.

    This is all possible because THE IGNORANT have declared their savior (Jesus Christ. There is no savior. An ignorant conceptualizing mind reifies, showing its’ ignorance.) as Supreme and above all else, separate from all else. This misunderstanding of the Bible will wipe humans off the planet. Every fist that flies, every gun that is purchased, every aggression at an “other” is due to ignorance.
