I've been asking how close are the Penus and Lyin' Ryan?

Mr Transportation''s arrogance re Garland was always a giveaway.

That lil leak with Lyin' Ryan covering up is also timely.

50. My guess would be Bush.

Nobody else in the clown car would have known where to even start making those kinds of phone calls. The old man still keeps his rolodex afaik, and that kind of inquiry would not have come cheap. As an added bonus, after Jeb was out of the race, probably the whole family was gonna vote for Hillary and from what came out unofficially, they think Trump is an obnoxious asshat conman...most Old Money does.

Since 2000, that's pretty much how the mob GOP wins, much worse this time. That is what 'preparing and planning' is for the GOP, how to manipulate and steal the elections.

49. Of course it's not legal, but the repugs control the House, Senate and the presidency

We have to hope the special counsel and the press keep up the pressure to expose it like what happened with Watergate.

There's some irony in this unfolding tableau. Comey, the one who swung the election to trump, seemed to be trying to redeem himself with his investigation into the Russian collusion with trump campaign/admin figures but got canned by the guy his Oct. letter installed into the White House.

Hoisted on his own petard.

30. Access Industries & Altep are Owned by Blavatnik.He made his $ in deal with Alfa Bank Fridman &

Renova Group Victor Vekelsberg when they sold their shared half of TNK-BP to ROSNEFT (Putin)

The legality is questionable from a RICO /Money Laundering perspective... as Blavatnik & Vekelsberg & Fridman have a history of being charged with such activities in the past.

Interesting that so much Russia related $ comes in from these 3 ... Blavatnik /Alfa Bank & Renova

President Obama had a meeting with the group of 8. Didn't Mitch say something like "we can't make this public". In the middle of our election. The President did not make it public.

What date/month was that meeting in the middle of the election????

Mitch and his wife need to resign from office. You pick the reason.

Follow the money. That much money influences our politicians.

I don't think they ever stopped doing business in Russia. I also think we'll discover that the huge flood of Russian money to Republicans had as much to do with their Russian ties as with Trump's.

56. THANK YOU factfinder_77 for posting this.

Can you explain this a little more? The more I read from Scott Dworkin's Twitter feed, the more I am confused.

These documents all look legitimate and are opposite Louise and Claude's claims without documentation. My question is if these documents are now public, why isn't the media (television) reporting any of this? I have been watching MSNBC most of the morning and all they seem to want to discuss is Dump's vacation.

Will we see more discussion of these documents this evening?

This document on McConnell is very damaging and incriminating....but how is it that he is still in the house? And not forced to resign? I would consider this breaking news, not if Dump said Israel or not to Russians.

I mean....this is serious stuff...and everyone seems to be sitting on it. Please explain more if you can why this is being kept quiet.
