    Default All Roads Lead To Putin

    Is it looking that way to you?

    https://www.brookings.edu/blog/fixgo...ntent=78294982



    The impeachment inquiry into President Trump reached what we may look back on as a turning point this week. Congress returned to work, a parade of witnesses defied the White House to testify, the ongoing crisis in Syria produced a 354 to 60 vote against the presidentís action that included 129 Republicans, Trumpís best friend Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) criticized him openly, and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell confirmed that he would indeed hold a trial in the Senateópossibly before Christmas.

    Why are things moving so quickly? And what needs to happen next? The answer to the first can be found in the Nixon impeachment and the answer to the second in, of all unlikely places, the theatre...

    You have Hillary derangement syndrome.

    This isn't about Hillary.

    This is about why the US president would do something that benefits Putin, but does not benefit the US.

    That’s kind of what several committees are doing as we speak.

    It is just too absurd to think that all the geopolitical pieces associated with the Trump regime would assist Putin, by coincidence.

    I am quite willing to believe that Trump is an unwitting rather than a conscious Russian agent. He is too easily manipulated via his ego, avarice, and studied ignorance.

    It is McConnell and the others who are too bright to be hoodwinked, and collaborate with Trump (and likely others) thinking that they are in control of the game.

    Equivalent to Nazi generals and senior officials.

    Is Gabbard a Russian asset? Any proof? Seems Hillary and several members here are quick to call Russian interference with nothing to back it up but mindless bullspit.

    I don't think Hillary said Gabbard was a Russian asset. She said she is "a favorite of the Russians."

    This statement appears to be true.

    Gabbard is supported by an online botnet of Russians, whose support she refuses to disavow, even when specifically asked. There's no doubt about that.

    But this thread isn't about Gabbard and it's not about Hillary.

    It's hard to get proof when subpoenas for documents or witnesses are ignored. You might want to ask yourself why Trump would fight to keep congress from hearing testimony, or seeing documents, that prove him innocent.

    I don't really think you can argue that Puton hasn't benefited from much of Trump's actions.

    For all the things the Republicans have charged Hillary with, and all the investigations of those charges they ran, they failed to prove anything. One can only construe that as she was innocent and the charges fiction, or the GOP is totally incompetent.

    Meanwhile, more people are testifying, and more evidence is coming. What do you expect it to show?
    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    I expect it to show that both the DNC and some alphabet groups have been up to their necks in Ukraine. Trumps no innocent, but i dont see anyone talking about Clintons Uranium 1 deal, and hubby being paid $500,000 for one speech. BOTH SIDES are as bad as the other, and i think delusional to think otherwise. Divide and rule in action, this place is proof...

    You are wrong, though hiliary didn’t name Gabbard, it’s universally accepted that is who she was referring to. When she went on to trash Jill Stein, she did it by saying: “she’s ALSO a Russian asset.”

    Do try to think, or at least read the news....

    Pete Buttigieg has criticised Hillary Clinton over controversial remarks about Tulsi Gabbard, one of his competitors for the Democratic presidential nomination, saying the former nominee should have provided evidence for her claim Gabbard is ďa Russian assetĒ.

    If you want to take Hillarys word that she has a farmload of russbots supporting her.... with no evidence to back it up, then you are just the person she wants voting for her, ask no questions and blind loyalty......

    Of course no side is squeaky clean. But to try to equate them all with the current administration and its supporters is ludicrous. This gang is off the charts crooked.

    Don't forget these guys.

    one of their chants was "russia is our friend! russia is our friend!"

    this international message of peace and friendship brought to you by spittle-flecked white nationalists.

    ^ Not what im trying to do at all. Just pointing out that both sides have feathered their own nests while they have had the power to do so........and it will continue to do so all the time you have a congress that is "pay to play". Stretching the law to suit one side but not the other will just lead to the inevitable.......

    Hiliary’s connection to Steele and the fake, Russian dossier is the only connection to Russia that’s been established.

    The whole gang is hand-picked crooked.

    This is the outcome the Republicans wanted all along, and now they're horrified at all the unintended consequences.

    You should read the article you just linked to.

    It says that Hillary called Gabbard “a favorite of the Russians.”

    Just like I said.

    Okay, okay! So, you aren't a paid agent of the Kremlin. Fine, I was wrong!

    All I'm saying is, as hard as you work for Putin's agenda, you should be paid! You too mdh, go get you some rubles!

    Oh, no. Not deranged at all; our tovarisch has a strategy. Note that we are no longer talking about Mr Trump's behavior and his connections to Russia, but about bringing up Hillary Clinton and how bizarre it is. If you can't refute, distract and blow smoke and divert attention..

    Dear me, you are out of touch, Putin is hard right these days and is supported by US hard right organisations. As an ex KGB man he probably always was.

    Joe, that is a sad and pathetic attempt, just like the others who throw out "kremlin stooge" when they hear things they do not agree with. Cant debate, wont debate but good at ganging up on individuals and lots of name calling......funny, reminds me of Trumps behaviour. LMFAO.

    Hysterically funny coming from Mr Boycott himself. Dont like what you hear,suggest others to do what you want, boycott or ignore list. Not adult enough just to scroll on by stuff you might not want to read or comment on. LMFAO Keep digging that hole for yourself......you might find a sparkly unicorn......
