Most are still talking around the real reason GOP is obstructing.

Last edited Fri Jul 13, 2018, 09:37 PM - Edit history (1)

Listening to all the news today, still most keep attributing GOP obstruction to catering to their base, and many still are asking why is GOP/ WH /congress not doing anything about protecting our elections. So few STILL get it that they are trying to cover their own collusion and criminal involvement, and that it's to their advantage to keep elections rigged.

Malcolm Nance gets it and a few others...but I heard so many asking "why" today, once again, when it is and has been so obvious to many of us. I hope Rachel has someone like Nance on who will call it like it is.

Edited later to add: Lawrence just said, "We still don't know why Trump is meeting with Putin." Arggh. We can make some really good guesses. Planning...more of the same. And what was with all those GOP senators going to Russia? Does whatever Trump is up to with Putin have their blessings? And Ryan's and McConnell's? Not a peep out of any of them today.

3. And...

As long as the biggest asshole in the world is in the white house sucking all the air out of the room and dominating every newscast with his ridiculous tweets and scandals and preposterous policies on trade or immigration, they are free to run roughshod over the country bankrupting it for their corporate masters. Working to gut medicare? Who knew? All Lester Holt talked about for half an hour was football players kneeling before the games...

4. Was The RNC Or Any Repugs Hacked By The Russians.....

in 2016? Was it mentioned in todays indictments? I thought all the Russian interference/hacking was directed only at the Dems.

5. Journalists are hot on the trail to find out who all was hacked in down ballot races after

today's announcement - I think it was Katy Tur who was talking about that. Appears to be at least primarily dems but that hasn't been determined yet.

6. RNC was hacked also.

In January of 2017, Comey said that the RNC was also hacked but none of their emails were ever released. I agree that Republicans are trying to cover their own butts. If they were indiscreet enough to talk on the House floor about which people Putin was paying, they were most likely indiscreet enough to say incriminating things via email—or at the least things that might be so embarrassing that they would risk re-election.

7. Interesting point. And who knows what they have on Rs that could be used for blackmail.

All kinds of games are possible with hacked emails.

8. My take is that when tRumpy went after the

FBI and CIA they tossed their secret hats into the ring and went over to Muellers side of the fence. GOP emails, phone records, etc. - does anyone really believe any of that is sacrosanct anymore?

The Repukes are going to fight with everything short of nuclear bombs to protect their stranglehold on power.

Remember Watergate?

15. They've sold out the country for their own gain. I hate to think that.

But I don't know of another reason.
