So the RNC/Team Trump/Paul Ryan/Russia were all working together

http://www.businessinsider.com/mueller-questions-rnc-digital-operation-trump-campaign-russia-2017-12

Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly begun to question Republican National Committee staffers
about the party's digital work with the Trump campaign last year.

The report indicates that Mueller may be homing in on yet another facet of Russia's election interference —
its social media influence campaign and targeted political advertising.

Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner managed the Trump campaign's data operation and recently hired a crisis
public relations firm to handle all press inquiries.

Special counsel Robert Mueller has begun to question Republican National Committee staffers about the party's 2016 campaign data operation, which helped President Donald Trump's campaign team target voters in critical swing states.

This Florida Republican directly benefitted from Russian hacks — and now he’s trying to shut down Mueller

https://www.rawstory.com/2017/12/this-florida-republican-directly-benefitted-from-russian-hacks-and-now-hes-trying-to-shut-down-mueller/

Three Florida Republicans are helping President Donald Trump to discredit or end the special counsel probe into Russian election interference — which directly benefitted at least one of the lawmakers.

“The N.R.C.C.’s use of documents stolen by the Russians plays right into the hands of one of the United States’ most dangerous adversaries,” Luján’ warned. “Put simply, if this action continues, the N.R.C.C. will be complicit in aiding the Russian government in its effort to influence American elections.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a similar letter to Ryan in early September, but the GOP leader never replied to either complaint.

The following month, October 2016, another super PAC tied to Ryan — the Congressional Leadership Fund — used stolen material in another advertisement, attacking Florida Democrat Joe Garcia, who eventually lost to incumbent Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL).

1. Yes. Even President Obama asked congress to investigate this

and the GOP's leaders said NO. GOPs knew and welcomed it.

2. But really what about Hillary's emails?

Republicans = F***ing Treason Weasels.

Not only did they welcome the Russian hacking and meddling in the elections
but they worked w/them too.

4. People were upset last night because they didn't realize how important it is to tie Ryan to Russians

I fell for that too. But today when I read the articles again I realize that Ryan could be a part of this and could be forced out, (Before he actually resigns). I also realized that Ryan is now on Perp watch and that feels wonderful

13. I'm glad to see Democrats are finally taking election rigging seriously

after Nixon's interference with Johnson's peace process, Reagan's October Surprise, the Bush brothers voter purge in Florida in 2000, and the various voter suppression efforts in 2016 including interstate crosscheck.

8. Yup! Way Deep. The New Yorker: Paul Ryan, What is said in the family stays in the family."

Paul Ryan Keeps It All in the Family

https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/paul-ryan-keeps-it-family-kevin-mccarthy-russia-trump

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump,” McCarthy said, according to Entous, a superb reporter who heard a tape recording of the colloquy. “Swear to God.

snip

In the Post piece, McCarthy’s remark is met with laughter, and Ryan cautions his colleagues, “This is an off the record . . . No leaks! . . . All right?”

And then, amid more laughter, Ryan says, “This is how we know we’re a real family here.”

“That’s how you know that we’re tight,” Steve Scalise, the House Majority Whip, says.

And how did McConnell know that by blocking Garland for the SCOTUS he would get
somebody he liked better after the election?

12. It always seems that the Repubs mirror their misdeeds onto us. Now all you hear is "deep state".

that means that they are in the middle of some large internal coup against the US. This is a bad state of affairs that will take a lot to root out.

15. We all know that Turtle is involved.

There is no way in hell he would let a Supreme Court pick fall into Hillary's hands. Therefore he had to know, long before the election, that she would lose...
