9. Here's hoping. Two must-ask questions...

From Vox:



Excerpt...

The two questions Senate Intelligence Committee lawmakers must ask Ratcliffe
Within the first few minutes of Ratcliffe’s confirmation hearing, Sens. Richard Burr (R-NC) or Mark Warner (D-VA), the Senate Intelligence Committee’s top two members, should ask “Did Russia interfere in the 2016 presidential election?”

Ratcliffe will likely say “yes” to this. After all, he noted during Mueller’s hearing last week that Russia meddled in “sweeping and systematic” fashion, echoing the special counsel’s own words. But the Congress member then turned to saying it’s possible Russia’s interference involved spreading a conspiracy that didn’t exist — that is, that the Trump campaign accepted Moscow’s assistance.

The senators must then ask a crucial follow-up question: “Did Russia interfere in the 2016 election to help elect Donald Trump?”

The correct answer to this is “yes,” as the intelligence community already reached this conclusion back in January 2017. Mueller also reaffirmed this assessment last week.

GOP must ditch Moscow Mitch, Ratcliffe & Trump or else Putin wins.
