With all the new Russia info - what's the theory on McConnell? Is he just such a hyper partisan that he's willing to go down in flames with this dumpster fire eventually (so long as he got his tax cut and his judges and lorded over the Dems for years) or is he knee deep in Russian shit too?
Probably both

There's the obvious - his wife is in Trump's cabinet.

Then there's the less obvious - the NRA and their connections to Russia, and how Russia used the NRA to more or less launder money into the 2016 election. (The Maria Butina side of this whole thing)

On that front, for McConnell, it's more of a what did he know and when did he know it thing vs an actively compromised thing. Same thing goes for Paul Ryan - who at the very least knew to get out of Dodge before the whole ship sinks.

Because of McConnell's wife, I'm not sure he's capable of jumping ship.

Just stopped by to say what delicious irony it would be if Trump lost reelection to Julian Castro.

Build a wall around Julian Castro. Someone better check his immigration status.

President Trump has gone to extraordinary lengths to conceal details of his conversations with Russian President Vladi*mir Putin, including on at least one occasion taking possession of the notes of his own interpreter and instructing the linguist not to discuss what had transpired with other administration officials, current and former U.S. officials said.
So for those who are as not idiots, yet still in denial that we are in a constant and unprecedented attack by foreign power...

What does it take? What do you need before it's obvious that this is something new and unheard of in our nation's history?

Idk about you but I don’t live in Washington not even in the USA and I am concerned over the Russian ties trump has. Remember these were the very same people that attacked trump during the campaign and now they are kissing his ass and defending him. God I hate the GOP! Bunch of spineless cowards!

Good. Here's hoping something comes of this:

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/lawye...162751204.html

Quote:
Aggrieved federal workers are suing the U.S. government over the shutdown, arguing that working without pay is a violation of the constitution.

The lawsuit filed on Wednesday on behalf of five anonymous federal workers argues that President Donald Trump — as well as the heads of four agencies — are forcing them to work without pay in violation of the Thirteenth Amendment (which prohibits involuntary servitude).

The plaintiffs, who work for the Department of Justice, Departments of Transportation, Agriculture and Homeland Security, also claim that the government is violating the Fifth Amendment as well by prohibiting the taking on of outside jobs like driving for Uber.
There's also this:

https://www.yahoo.com/gma/house-lawy...230024881.html

Quote:
Lawyers for the House Intelligence and Foreign Affairs committees will meet Monday to evaluate their legal options for subpoenaing the interpreters who were present when President Donald Trump spoke to Russian President Vladimir Putin without aides, ABC News has learned.

A senior Democratic aide on the House Foreign Affairs Committee said the Washington Post's new reporting that Trump seized notes from the interpreter at his meeting with Putin in Hamburg, "has changed the calculus."

"This raises a new host of questions," the aide told ABC News. "We're looking into the legal implications of that, and we'll discuss our options. Our lawyers are sitting down with intel committee lawyers to hash it out."
Sounds like Trump's about to have yet another bad week. Darn.

The best part about the Orange Mutant with the fish mouth's tweets are the replies he gets from people fed up with his lies and corruption.

The only thing curious about Lindsay Graham is how he hasn't been outed in this day and age.

He has been. By a super hardcore right wing opponent of his, so it was more of a smear.
