Republicans are planning a mass attack against Biden using information from pro-Russian agents

In 2016, Donald Trump and his campaign team made more than 100 contacts with Russian agents in what turned out to be a successful effort to plunder information, disseminate propaganda, and ultimately steal an American election. Other Republican officials were certainly involved to some degree—particularly Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who did everything he could to block efforts to make the public aware of Russian interference and damaged election security.

In 2020, Republicans in both House and Senate—having given Trump a free pass to invite foreign interference and approving the whitewashing of Trump’s crimes by Attorney General William Barr—are all on board. That includes Barr, who has all but promised to provide America with a QAnon-sanctioned October surprise. It includes Republican lawmakers like Rep. Devin Nunes, who are sitting on a packet of documents prepared by a pro-Russian official from Ukraine. It includes Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has been using the State Department to pile up a stack of unsubstantiated attacks on Joe Biden. Barr, Nunes, and Pompeo are not just sitting on this information: they’re deliberately hiding it, looking for the moment to strike when no one has a chance to see what a baseless conspiracy they’re really pushing.

Devin Nunes has always represented the ragged edge of support for Donald Trump. From the moment he jumped from an Uber and sneaked into the White House in an attempt to derail the Russia investigation, to his stint in front of the House Ethics Committee, Nunes made it clear that his loyalty to Trump exceeded any other responsibility. And when it came to questions about when Nunes would be truthful with his House colleagues, he could not have been more clear: “Never.”

So it should come as no surprise that as the 2020 election approaches, Devin Nunes has been working directly with a pro-Russian Ukrainian lawmaker who previously passed along information through Rudy Giuliani. That lawmaker has been feeding information to Republicans in both the House and Senate. It comes in the form of a “packet” of supposed evidence that backs up Trump and Giuliani’s long-debunked claims about Joe Biden’s relationship to the Ukrainian government.

2. Not that I don't believe this...

He was our Vice President for 8 yrs. Vetted then. What in gods name could they come up with that they hadn't dug up already? This is nonsense. He's not my first choice, but with all the experience I dont' think we can go wrong. All these people around me saying such bizarre things about Biden, HE WAS ALREADY IN THERE! A HEARBEAT AWAY!!! Geesh

9. They don't really need to come up with anything truthful

 

They can make up shit and hope it sticks.

The only antidote is to prepare Americans by making this public now so no one will believe anything when it is dropped.

8. I don't believe this. They are all "sitting on a packet of information"?

Devin Nunes, Rudy Giuliani, et al would not "sit on" anything. They would be releasing it now to try to paint a narrative of Biden in the minds of voters to distract from the disaster which is Trump. And when has either Nunes or Giuliani been able to keep a secret? Giuliani even spilled the beans on the Comey October surprise in 2016 at least a week before it happened.

10. CRAZY thought here?

Could their (RUMP and Barr)) OCT surprise be Arresting Biden? With Barr they could do this. We ALL know it will be total BULLSHIT charges but what about the election then? What will stop them?

12. Biden would be elected even if they arrested him...in fact he might get more votes.
