53. Yep. They are EXACTLY that. Public SERVANTS. WE taxpayers are THEIR EMPLOYERS.

I was at a meeting in Kurt Schrader's office (my new DINO congressman - DEAR GOD DO I MISS TED LIEU!!!!!!!!) with my Indivisible group, and when it was my turn to speak, that's precisely the language I used. "As his employer, I ... " and "as his employers`, we ... "

See Post 36 above. A report about one Len Blavatnik, an individual with US and UK citizenship, Ukrainian (OF COURSE!!!)-born billionaire who's friends with Russian oligarchs close to Putin, Oleg Deripaska in particular. Doling out some "6.35 million dollars to republican candidates and incumbent senators, using two holding companies, Access Industries and A1 Altep Holdings."

If the above report is true, then ol' Mitchy-boy is bought and paid-for. Linked to Putin. ($3.5 million)

So is Lindsey Graham. ($800K)

So is Marco Rubio. (1.5 million)

So is John Kasich. ($250K)

So is Scott Walker. (1.1 million)

So was the now-deceased John McCain (the low-ball on the list, only $200K)

Here's a report from the Dallas Morning News - from August of 2017 (!!!!! - NOBODY's picked up on this!!!!) :

Party loyalty is often cited as the reason that GOP leaders have not been more outspoken in their criticism of President Donald Trump and his refusal to condemn Russia's interference in the 2016 presidential election. Yet there may be another reason that top Republicans have not been more vocal in their condemnation. Perhaps it's because they have their own links to the Russian oligarchy that they would prefer go unnoticed.
Donald Trump and the political action committees for Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Lindsey Graham, John Kasich and John McCain accepted $7.35 million in contributions from a Ukrainian-born oligarch who is the business partner of two of Russian president Vladimir Putin's favorite oligarchs and a Russian government bank.
During the 2015-2016 election season, Ukrainian-born billionaire Leonard "Len" Blavatnik contributed $6.35 million to leading Republican candidates and incumbent senators. Mitch McConnell was the top recipient of Blavatnik's donations, collecting $2.5 million for his GOP Senate Leadership Fund under the names of two of Blavatnik's holding companies, Access Industries and AI Altep Holdings, according to Federal Election Commission documents and OpenSecrets.org.

on edit -
Emphasis is mine.

GUYS! NOTE!!!!! THIS IS IMPORTANT, AND YES, I'M SHOUTING!!!

Look at that "dishonor role" of republi-CONS. I'm thinking specifically of John Kasich. JOHN KASICH is on that list, taking dirty money from a dirty Putin-connected/Oleg Deripaska-connected Ukrainian billionaire. JOHN KASICH is gonna run for president someday. Just watch! He's already considered a prime candidate and a somewhat "nice, normal, old-fashioned 'respectable' GOPer." He's already in the top tier for 2024 and onward. Some even have already asked him about running in 2020 to try to primary trump. HE'S DIRTY, TOO!!!! HE'S a wholly-owned subsidiary TOO!!! Don't forget this in the years ahead! We can head him off at the pass with info like this!

"Little Marco" can also be undone by this. He's got lots of presidential ambition. Same thing for Scott Walker.
