McConnell, Ryan, Gov. Walker up to their eyeballs in Russian money

Adam Khan has been busy in the past few hours with info about McConnell's SuperPAC funded by Russian money, primarily Blavatnik.

Keep reading through the feed to another didturbing news story about Chao/McConnell family shipping business. Unbelievable how news gets buried.

The Repugs are SO FAR deep into Russian money. Good ole dark money coming to light!

March in June being organized regarding corruption and demand for Trump/Russia investigations.

1. Of course he is, and that is why he knew in advance that they were tampering with

the election on many levels.

So he knew he could stop Garland's nomination.

They are all taritors.

And we need serious action to deal with them.

There are reminders all over DU that it took two years to bring Nixon down. We don't have two years. Trump is taking a sledge hammer to our government. Also, if we don't get the entire upper echelon of republican leadership, this cancer will grow back.

23. Yep McConnell was in on the fix since the beginning.

It's why he told Obama he would politicize any announcement Obama Administration made re: Russian interference...He had to keep a lid on his own treason until results could be 'certified'.

McConnell is hateful to the core. If he were a normal kind of asshole, he would honestly believe he were doing it for country, but he's not. He's doing this for himself and his own power and he knows it and he doesn't give a fuck if WE know it or not. He's a rascist, misogynistic insecure fuckhead for whom all the money and personal power available to him will NEVER be enough to fill whatever void exists in his hateful black soul.

I'm not in favor of the death penalty. But I want him tried for treason and then HANGED.

In Ohio in 2016 unending TV spots that were funded w/dark money
blamed Ted Strickland for outsourcing jobs something Rob Portman

the Presidency going to the highest bidder whenever a foreign government doesn't interfere. It is quickly becoming the exception rather than the rule to have our President elected by the people!

13. I googled him

He doesn't have a blog/platform where he lays it all out? I found this article on buzzfeed:

https://www.buzzfeed.com/charliewarzel/blue-detectives

I also see where he has a gofundme: Trump-Russia + Transition Coverage by Adam Khan - GoFundMe

The problem with the twitter is that it doesn't lock down - all in one place - the theory, the background, the data, the evidence.

If I have time tonight (Gubernatorial Candidate Forum so late late late night) I'll try to capture them and push them to Rachel Maddow. The things I see here from twitter I email over - condensed into one email - once or twice a week.

This way the real journalists can pull them into a format that reaches the masses.

22. Here's the thing for me...

We KNOW Russia was interfering with the election process.
That is an undisputed fact.
No one in either political party (outside of the Fairy Tale White House) believes nothing happened.
The real issue is the extent of the corruption and the extent of the reach of Putin into American politics.

Where is the GOP outrage machine? Why is it utterly silent?
This is the party of Reagan...MR. "Tear-Down-This-Wall" himself? Mr. "I-Won-The-Cold-War"?
They spent MILLIONS of tax payer dollars on Benghazi because they had nothing on Obama so the next logical target was the likely nominee to run in 2016. It was nakedly obvious and transparent to all except the dumb-ass low/no information voters...
They spent HUNDREDS of hours in open committee sessions, generating sound bites and video clips.
They were incensed about it as "the worst scandal in American history"...

And now?
When we ARE discussing the worst scandal in American electoral history?
Crickets...tumbleweeds....a forlorn whistling wind, blowing through their empty heads and creating a sound like something out of a Roger Corman horror film!

This was NOT only an attack with money and propaganda...the voting machines in Michigan and Pennsylvania and Ohio and Wisconsin should have been 100% investigated and the results made public after 3 separate, independent teams would have been given full access to them and the reported results.

I was sick to my stomach watching the election returns. I still don't believe this result was on the level. I KNOW it was not achieved legally (illegal foreign funding and contacts with the campaign and transition teams are irrefutable at this point). This should be the lead story EVERY DAY and EVERY NIGHT until it is 100% resolved. The government should be totally shut down on policy and agendas frozen until the air is cleared and the report of a non-partisan, independent commission or prosecutor is delivered on ALL of the events surrounding the election of 2016.

We are living in an occupied nation at the moment, under an installed but not freely elected (or winning) administration. That fake government is actively dismantling the programs and departments that exist to improve the health and welfare of the people at the behest of a fool and his merry band of criminals.

Russia paid GOP off.
Russia paid for hackers and bots to flood idiot America with propaganda they were too stupid and gullible (or just flat out misogynistic) to see through.
Russia was able to influence some people to vote against their own health, wealth and self-interest because of e-mail or "stamina" or "relatability".
Russia bought Trump through loans when no one else would keep his charade afloat.
Putin owns his boy in DC and the Syria kerfuffle is further proof of this...a real crisis has never looked so pre-canned and fabricated in hindsight than that entire incident.

The election was proven to be influenced - and I believe stolen - by foreign agents who have no allegiance to the USA , yet the party of hyper-partisan, overt and disgusting "patriotism" (really just jingoism with barely any camouflage), is utterly OK with this because their team "won"?

Trump is an illegitimate president on every conceivable level. His cabinet is a historical laughing stock and we're only 90+ days into this mess. His policies are incoherent and un-tethered to reality, as are his daily proclamations on Twitter. This coup d'etat has happened and nothing is being done to stop it. Protests are easily ignored - see "War, Iraq" as a depressing exhibit why. The fact that the largest political scandal in US electoral history is seeing answered demanded above all other government business is a damning indictment of just how sick this society is become...

Guess we're all too enamored of those $425 pre-mudded jeans...

The real question is - how deep does this go? Who is responsible? And who allowed it to happen? Was it the billionaires? Was it the FBI? Was it the NRA? Was it the whole GOP? Was it Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan? Was it Trump himself? Was it all of the above?

They are not "useless", people need to know, but at the government level, at the FBI/CIA level, unless something happens, and I don't see anything happen, at that level they are useless so far.

In other words, they have the proofs, but if these proofs remain in a file cabinet then they are useless.

The Russian fertilizer king dude owns a big stake in a company that got tax incentives, but the jobs never appeared. Governor McCrory privatized the department that deals with economic development and they take private donations. It's could be coincidental...

But weird things are happening, and they always seem to involve Russians and the GOP.
