Russia Continues Attacks on U.S. Politics

If you thought Putin’s attempts to destroy the United States had ended think again.
Or do you really believe U.S. Sen. John McCain, a war hero, would call Vice President Mike Pence “an asshole.”
Here is one fake news piece that originates from Russian TV that states just that. But you won’t find his voice saying it, in this url or others.
The Republican Party, often more anti-Russian than liberal Democrats, have given up their heritage.
But there were plenty of regular Republicans, members of Congress, including Benghazi hoaxster Trey Gowdy, pushing the pro-Russian line. He told the Senate that Russians have been doing it for decades and it was nothing new.
Earlier this year he pooh-poohed warnings from U.S. intelligence. Now, there has been so much evidence that Donald Trump is a Russian plant that the U.S., for the first time ever, needs to restage a presidential election.
The Republicans have lost their right to participate in this vote. It should be between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.
Even with all the Russian intervention Clinton got 3 million more votes. Perhaps more, if there had not been so much voter suppression, particularly in the states that gave Trump a lead in the electoral college.
The Washington Post reported: “As Russian hackers and propagandists tried to manipulate the American election last year, the C.I.A. noticed a series of suspicious contacts between Russian government officials and associates of Donald J. Trump’s campaign, John O. Brennan, the former C.I.A. director, said Tuesday.
“In testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Mr. Brennan described a nerve-fraying few months as American authorities realized that the election was under attack and worried that Mr. Trump’s campaign might be aiding that fight. His remarks were the fullest public account to date of the origins of an F.B.I. investigation that continues to shadow the Trump administration.
“I know what the Russians try to do. They try to suborn individual and try to get individuals, including U.S. individuals, to act on their behalf, wittingly or unwittingly,” Mr. Brennan said. When he left office in January, he said, “I had unresolved questions in my mind as to whether or not the Russians had been successful in getting U.S. persons involved in the campaign or not to work on their behalf.”
