When you own the president of the United States, why wouldn’t you high five each other? The orange menace will keep letting these guys get away with murder as long as they keep lining his and his family’s pockets.
I hear Apollo Creed’s son is going to take on Drago’s son. (I’ll stick with this since reality hasn’t done too well recently.)
Everyone around Spanky lies.
You hear this from Spanky and his gang of stooges:
Earlier this week, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy told Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and FBI Director Chris Wray to, well, hurry up.
Gowdy lectured Rosenstein and Wray thusly
“Russia isn’t being hurt by this investigation right now. We are. This country is being hurt by it. … We need to see the evidence. If you have evidence of wrongdoing by any member of the Trump campaign, present it to the damn grand jury. If you have evidence that this President acted inappropriately, present it to the American people. There’s an old saying that justice delayed is justice denied. I think right now all of us are being denied. Whatever you got, finish it the hell up because this country is being torn apart.”
The message is clear: The special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election — which is being led by Robert Mueller and overseen by Rosenstein — is taking too long and needs to wrap up — and quickly.
You see, Republicans don’t care if the crimson pussygrabber sold out the country to the Russians or that what he did is nothing less than treason. They just want it all to end.
So let’s remember that the last major investigation of a president was about a land deal that president lost money on:
Independent counsel Robert Ray today filed his long-awaited report on the Whitewater investigation, clearing President Clinton and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing.
The official report, sent by Ray to a three-judge panel, is not expected to be finalized for several weeks. But Ray released a six-page statement today that concludes neither the president nor Mrs. Clinton intentionally violated the law in the botched Whitewater real estate deal. …
The sprawling inquiry was launched in 1994 to investigate the Clintons’ role in an Arkansas real estate venture dating to the 1970s.
Ray is the third independent counsel to head the inquiry, which has cost more than $52 million to date. Robert Fiske Jr. was appointed to look into the matter by Attorney General Janet Reno in January 1994. Fiske was replaced later that year by Starr, who left the post in 1999.
Republicans beat that dead Whitewater horse for six years and the conclusion was that the Clintons did nothing wrong. Meanwhile the investigation of Putin’s little pony is 13 months old, and cretin like Trey Gowdy and Spanky’s lawyers are pissing themselves because the current investigation is too long. And they know there was collusion with a capital COLLUSION.
Republicans are the enemy of the people and need to be erased in the coming midtterm elections so a true investigation into this treason can take place.
Oh, and let’s not forget, Trey Gowdy was the head of the Republican dog and pony show called the Benghazi investigation and persecution of Hillary Clinton that began in 2013 and went through 2016. How did that end?
Ending one of the longest, costliest and most bitterly partisan congressional investigations in history, the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued its final report on Tuesday, finding no new evidence of culpability or wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton in the 2012 attacks in Libya that left four Americans dead.
So, honestly, fuck Trey Gowdy and the pony he rode in on.
Let’s combine some international intrigue with a very popular parlor game.
- Maria Butina is a Russian spy (allegedly, but hell, we know she is).
- Maria Butina found the best way to practice her spycraft was to infiltrate the NRA.
- Maria Butina routed Russian money to the NRA
- The NRA routes money to the Republican Party, therefore …
- Russia owns the Republican Party.
See. I only needed five degrees.
Butina has been charged with two counts: conspiracy, and acting as an agent of a foreign government without informing the attorney general. On Wednesday, she pleaded not guilty to both.
Now, this is not part of the Mueller investigation. The FBI’s Washington Field Office investigated Butina, and she’s being prosecuted by the DC US Attorney’s Office. For whatever reason, this probe was not put under Mueller’s purview.
But the exact nature, and breadth, of what is being investigated related to Butina remains vague — making it unclear exactly how much legal jeopardy the NRA or the Trump camp is now in.
If the NRA really was bamboozled by a Russian spy, the group could be a victim in all this. Yet there are a series of McClatchy reports, dating back to January, asserting the FBI is investigating the NRA’s finances — and specifically whether Torshin “illegally funneled money” to the group “to help Donald Trump win the presidency.”
The NRA is not legally obligated to publicly reveal its donors, and does not do so. It spent tens of millions of dollars on the 2016 elections to try to get Trump elected. An aide to Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR), who’s been investigating the matter, told McClatchy that the NRA had dodged his questions about whether it accepted money from shell companies that could have been routed from Russians. (Butina and Erickson set up a shell company, Bridge LLC, together.)
As for Trump’s associates — the government filings about Butina are conspicuously light on references to her outreach to Trump’s team, even though this outreach has been widely reported in the media.
However, in May, a Spanish organized crime prosecutor said that his government had given wiretaps of some of Alexander Torshin’s conversations to the FBI “just a few months ago.” He added, “Mr. Trump’s son should be concerned.”
For now, though, only Butina has been charged. A DC judge ordered Wednesday that she be jailed without bond until her trial.
Let’s carry this a little further.
- Russia sponsors terrorism against the United States
- The NRA demands unlimited access to guns in the United States.
- The NRA is a Russian-sponsored terrorist group that pays off the Republican Party to destroy America.
See! Only needed three degrees there.
