"SNIP......

A former member of Congress who pushed for political changes in Ukraine that aligned with Rudy Giulianiís investigative efforts there got millions of dollars in political support from a pro-Trump super PAC financed in part by†Giuliani allies.

The more than $3 million that the group, America First Action, spent supporting former Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) included huge ad buys that appear to have pushed the boundaries of laws restricting super PAC coordination with political campaigns, according to a Daily Beast review of federal campaign finance and television broadcasting records. And they could severely complicate the former congressmanís attempt to win back office in 2020.†

The expenditures made by America First Action came during the 2018 election cycle, during which Sessions was fighting desperately to hold on to his House seat in a race he would go on to lose to Democrat Colin Allred. The PAC, which has President Donald Trumpís official imprimatur, has raised millions of dollars to fulfill that task. And during that election season, $325,000 of that came from a company called Global Energy Producers LLC, a firm run by Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.†

The Soviet-born businessmen were, at the time of their donation to the PAC, helping Giuliani solicit dirt on President Donald Trumpís political opponents from officials in Ukraine. That work, which is now at the center of an impeachment inquiry against the president, included trying to get the U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, Marie Yovanovitch, removed from her post on grounds that she was badmouthing Trump.†

3. Pete Sessions, huh?

He's moving down I-35 to the Waco area to run for Congress again. There was also a post in the Texas group about Parnas and Fruman paying him a call at his Texas office. I have to wonder how many other Republicans got a 'courtesy' call at their state office from these thugs--I mean, Russian gentlemen.


Congrats Central Texas, Pete Sessions Is Your Problem Now
