The Senate report the republicans don't want America to know about

OK, I changed the Washington Monthly headline a bit for this thread title, but the message is the same. In a nutshell, the Senate Intelligence Committee agrees with all of the US Intelligence Agencies: Putin ordered ACTS OF WAR against the USA.

Those attacks against America helped Trump win in 2016, and the attacks are onging, amping up now with more ACTS OF WAR against America and American democracy. Putin and russia are WAGING WAR against America right frigging now. Meanwhile, I am impelled to note the obvious: the republicans are rolling over, licking their chops, refusing to defend American democracy, and distracting themselves by counting their godforsaken and ill-gotten "tax breaks."

The Report the Senate Doesn’t Want You to See
by Martin Longman July 5, 2018

"The committee found that Russia did indeed intervene in the election with the express purpose of hurting Hillary Clinton’s candidacy or potential presidency and of helping Donald Trump win. It found that the Intelligence Community Assessment (ICA) that was released in January 2017 was based on solid information and defensible analytical assumptions.

"It found that Russia did in fact penetrate multiple state and local electoral boards and they reported that their subsequent investigation had unearthed further evidence of this. It noted the ICA’s previous reporting in Russian troll farms and announced “the Committee’s investigation has exposed a far more extensive Russian effort to manipulate social media outlets to sow discord and to interfere in the 2016 election and American society.”

"It agreed that all of this was personally ordered by Vladimir Putin..."

however that act of war is carried out, Air, Land, Sea or Cyber.

The report should be made public in every major publication, print or cyber.

They should be screaming about this.
Meanwhile there are ReTHUG Senators calling for sanctions to be lifted. Go figure - treasonous scumbags all.

Nothing will happen as a result of this report. Fox news has all the tRump supporters so completely brainwashed they wont acknowledge it because it's "deep state".

before Putin and the freaking Evil Empire* in Helsinki, and likely agree to divide and weaken America further, as he has been doing all along.

How can republicans claim to be patriotic AmericaNs, and this week be letting their very own habitually lying casino clown meet in ABSOLUTE UNKNOWABLE SECRET with the murderous man who is ordering russia's WAR ON AMERICA?

What's up with that evil security-breaking shit, republicans.

8. USA Today: Congressional Republicans' trip to Russia was a shameful fool's errand

"But now, at the very time that a preliminary report from the Senate Intelligence Committee points to clear and convincing evidence of Russian interference, a delegation of seven members of Trump’s party — seven senators and one House member — have trooped over to Moscow to be lectured to by Russia’s foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and his sidekick former Russian ambassador to the United States and alleged part-time spy Sergei Kislyak.

"What could possibly have prompted seven senators and one congresswoman to abase themselves and, to make matters worse, do it on the Fourth of July?...

"...Are these senators not aware of the fact that under Vladimir Putin Russia has reverted to being an old-fashioned communist dictatorship minus the ideology but with the same paranoia, the same penchant for aggression and the same intolerance of political dissent?..."
