Just so all Republicans who have just turned or are thinking about turning on tRUMP amplify it more within the Republican Party and their voters by spreading it further and set themselves off like a powder keg on the tRUMP Klan and his enablers in the House and Senate.

With Cohen’s involvement, the publication began questioning President Barack Obama’s birthplace and American citizenship in print, an effort that Trump promoted for several years, former staffers said."

31. Wow. Am sharing with my peeps.

And my brain sincerely thanks you for this well-timed OP and reminder. Is very helpful, as I have needed to go back and sharpen my internal timeline of all that has occurred in regards to russian dealings with tRump and republicons over recent years. We’ve just had so much thrown at us, that it is good to step back and behold the litany of it.
