Another question I have is why is no one talking about Rep. Dana Rohrabacher?

He was and is an ardent fan of Putin and Russia and never hides the fact.

"Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, one of the most pro-Russia members of Congress, is set to visit the country in an effort to explore “how we can work with the Duma,” The Washington Post reported Wednesday. The announcement comes just as the U.S. officially levied sanctions against the government of Vladimir Putin for its role in hacking U.S. political institutions in an alleged attempt to tilt the presidential election toward Donald Trump."

1. as latter-day repukes embrace the Evil Empire, the Shade of Ronald Reagan

writhes in ideological agony at the republican betrayal of America and American democracy.

Reagan rises from the grave to cast a curse upon the Latter Day Republicans who sold out America as if it were a cheap CASINO, and pissed all over the concepts of truth, integrity and honor.

2. I say pay attention to this man. He is working, so far, under the radar of public scrutiny.

 

From Wikipedia

On September 8, 2008, at a House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee meeting, Rohrabacher argued that the Georgians had initiated the recent military confrontation in the ongoing Russia–Georgia war.[82][83][84]

In April 2014, he supported the idea of Alaskans rejoining Russia if a majority voters in Alaska wanted to.[85]

According to a 2015 article by Politico reporter Luke O'Brien, Rohrabacher is known for his long-time friendship with Russia's Vladimir Putin and his defense of "the Russian point of view."[86][87]

After Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election, Rohrabacher defends his approach to improve the U.S.-Russia relations and to cooperate on the settlement of Syrian crisis among other strategic and regional issues. He believes defeating radical Islam and deterring China is more urgent priority.[88][89]

Taiwan[edit]

Congressman Rohrabacher speaking at the 2013 California Young Americans for Liberty State Convention
After President-elect Donald Trump answered a congratulatory phone call from democratically elected President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen on December 2, 2016,[90][91][92][93] Congressman Rohrabacher said Trump's phone call with Taiwan's president was "terrific" because of the diplomatic warning it sent to China. "He showed the dictators in Beijing that he's not a pushover." He emphasized, "China has had an enormously aggressive foreign policy and by him actually going to Taiwan, he's showing the people in Beijing that they cannot have this aggressive foreign policy and expect to be treated just the same by an American president."[94]

Ukraine[edit]
Rohrabacher supported the right of Crimea to secede from Ukraine and join Russia in 2014. On March 6, 2014, he was one of 23 members of the House of Representatives to vote against a $1 billion loan guarantee to support the new government of Ukraine.[95] In the March 11, 2014, House of Representatives vote (402 voting yes; 7 opposed) to condemn Russia for violating Ukraine's sovereignty, Rohrabacher voted "present." Commenting on the issue, he stated, "Starting with our own American Revolution, groups of people have declared themselves, rightfully, to be under a different government or a government of their choosing. People forget that’s what our Declaration of Independence is all about." He also said, "The sanctions are an abomination of hypocrisy. This is ridiculous: What we were doing with the violence and military action we took to secure the Kosovars' right to self-determination was far more destructive and had far more loss of life than what Putin's done trying to ensure the people of Crimea are not cut off from what they would choose as their destiny with Russia."[96]

3. Given that Clinton won his district, he's embracing tactics and deeds opposed by his voters.

Hopefully this is his last term in Congress as Orange County sees how horrible a representative he is.

4. He refers to the "DUMA" as a smokescreen

What a joke.

Dickhead.

5. I just had to bring this up again in view of the latest Ryan comments wanting to keep this a secret.

 

It was obvious to me this is a person who the FBI should be looking at regarding all the links to Russia.
