TRUMP’S LOYALTIES LIE WITH PUTIN’S RUSSIA, CLAIMS SALLY YATES

She’s not wrong. Any thinking person must surely realize by now where Donny’s loyalties are. Shameful, yet the majority of Repubes still support the traitor.

The Accused Russian Agent as Trump Republican

https://www.bloomberg.com/view/artic...ump-republican

In a Republican Party where many are still wary of gangster politics, Butina chose her targets well. The gun militants of the NRA and the Christian militants of the religious right are Trump’s most unflinching supporters and pillars of the GOP’s authoritarian-racial wing. Those who are not already fans of Putin’s racist, homophobic, macho and militaristic Mother Russia are increasingly Putin-curious.

Putin clearly sees the potential for transnational white Christian solidarity. Dozens of Russians attended the most recent National Prayer Breakfast in February. As the New York Times reported:

In 2013, Bryan Fischer, then a spokesman for the American Family Association, called Mr. Putin a “lion of Christianity.” In 2014, Franklin Graham — the politically influential evangelist and vocal Trump supporter — defended Mr. Putin for his efforts “to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda,” even as he lamented that Americans have “abdicated our moral leadership.” In December 2015, Mr. Graham met privately with Mr. Putin for 45 minutes.

Butina didn’t camouflage her Putin connections in courting the NRA. She flaunted them. She worked as an assistant to Alexander Torshin, a Putin crony, oligarch and high-ranking member of United Russia, who had already been welcomed into the NRA’s embrace with a lifetime membership and social engagements with NRA leaders – despite credible allegations that he is has connections to organized crime.

"How do you solve a problem like Maria"?
Except this is not a cute story like Sound of Music.
We have sex, guns, deceit and NRA in the mix. And a very good reason to follow the NRA-Russia money trail. TV networks for sure will be cashing on this bonanza since SHS has become so predictable and boring.

A majority thinks Russia has dirt on Trump, a new poll shows

By a 51-to-35 percent margin, U.S. voters are convinced the Russian government has dirt on Trump, according to a Quinnipiac University National Poll.

His overall approval rating now sits at 38 percent, compared with 58 percent disapproval, according to the poll.

The Real Clear Politics average of polls shows that Trump's rating is underwater by nearly 10 points.

House conservatives move to impeach Rosenstein

The usual suspects, sigh. Let's see whether Paul Ryan will stand up to them for a change. Doubtful.

^^ Just bluster from 'Gym' Jordan and his band of traitors.
He needs to worry about his own pending legal troubles since he has been named in one of the two class action lawsuits against Ohio State.

Under Mr. Rosenstein’s supervision, Christopher Steele’s political opposition research was neither vetted before it was used in October 2016 nor fully revealed to the FISC, given Director Comey’s June 2017 testimony the dossier was “salacious and unverified.”
Rosenstein was sworn in in April of 2017.
