Trump asked Senate Republicans to end Russia election interference investigation: report

President Trump reportedly pressed multiple Senate Republicans to end the Senate Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, according to a new report.

Multiple lawmakers and aides told The New York Times that Trump asked several top Republicans, including committee chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Sen. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) to end the investigation quickly.

Trump’s requests came over the summer as special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian election interference ramped up.

A White House spokesman told the Times that Trump has “at no point…attempted to apply undue influence on committee members.”
The U.S. intelligence community concluded in a report made public in January that the Kremlin sought to disrupt the 2016 election and sway the race in Trump's favor, prompting a number of investigations by House and Senate committees and special counsel Robert Mueller.

Heres how Trump will ultimately betray his own voters

and he’s already begun

Among the stranger features of the 2016 election campaign was the success of Donald Trump, a creature of globalization, as an America First savior of the white working class. A candidate who amassed billions of dollars by playing globalization for all it was worth — he manufactured clothes and accessories bearing his name in low-wage economies and invested in corporations eager to outsource — won over millions of voters by promising to keep jobs here in the US.

Admittedly, only a third of his voters earned less than $50,000 a year and cultural and racial resentment, not just economic grievances, drove many of them to Trump. Still, in an ever more economically unequal America, his populist economic message resonated. It helped him win the presidency by peeling off white working-class votes in key regions, particularly the industrial Midwest. Now he’s stuck with his populist narrative, and here’s the problem for him: it’s not likely to work — not given the economic realities of this planet, not for long anyway.

Do you think it's possible that Moore has some kind of tie to O'Keefe?
