  • GOP Staffer Reveals Why Top Republican Congressmen Were In Russia Over Fourth Of July Holiday And It Ties Directly Back To Trump

    The only logical conclusion from Donald Trump’s recent behavior is that he knows the end is near.

    That’s a terrifying prospect, honestly, and not just for him. It means we’re going to have a lot of things to figure out as a country, and we’re going to have to sort out how to move forward from a regime that didn’t just make it okay to be publicly horrible to the underprivileged and disenfranchised, but encouraged it — no, required it — from members, agencies, and representatives of the administration.

    But it’s bad for Donald because if his time is almost up, he knows the window is closing on his opportunity to deliver what he promised in exchange for getting elected: A lifting of sanctions on Russia. And if Democratic Coalition founder Scott Dworkin’s source is correct, Trump just tried to solve that problem the old-fashioned way — by sending other people to do his job.

    Everyone has seen by now the list of Republican members of Congress who spent the most American of holidays in the capital of Russia, talking to Russian politicians despite there being nothing on the official Congressional schedule pertaining to such a trip. Now we know why they were there — because Trump asked them to be. In fact, there hadn’t been a US Congressional delegation sent to Russia since 2013, according to the Guardian.

    In all, Steve Daines (MT), Ron Johnson (WI), Jerry Moran (KS), Kay Granger (TX), Richard Shelby (AL), John Hoeven (ND), John Kennedy (LA), and John Thune (SD) visited the Russian capital. Daines’ presence there was especially noteworthy due to Trump’s recent rally in Montana, where he praised Rep. Daines seemingly to no end, and because of the strange series of tweets he sent on the Fourth, in which he didn’t explicitly say he was in America for this Independence Day, but which were clearly intended to convey that — as though he was hiding the fact that he was in Russia when he sent the tweets:

    In fact, we could go through a list of suspicious things said and done by each and every Republican who spent the Fourth of July in Moscow, but the bottom line is that Senator Ron Johnson said pretty much all that needed to be said about the Republicans’ takeaway from the trip:

    “I think you’d be hard-pressed to say that sanctions against Russia are really working all that well.”

    And that sounds like a message straight from Donald Trump’s mouth.
