'Our eyes are open': Mary Trump calls out 'MAGA Mike Johnson' for alleged Russian ties [View all]

By M.L. Nestel
Published November 28, 2023 9:39 PM ET

Mary Trump is convinced newly minted House Speaker Mike Johnson is compromised by Russia.

"Despite the fact that Mike Johnson now holds a place of enormous power in the American government, he remains an elusive character whose perverted notions of American democracy and religious fanaticism still aren’t completely understood," she states on her Substack "The Good In Us."

She cites a Newsweek piece that breaks down Mother Russia's infiltration of U.S. politics by funneling money into a slate of MAGA-entrenched Congressmen.


And lets not forget that this "christian hypocrite" wants to get a bi-partisan commission together to gut and cut Social Security .......
