Hilarious that Trump has tweeted “why didn’t anyone mention this before the election?” I remember it coming up in two debates. The “news” that the CIA has issued a secret report that confirms again that they believe the Russians were behind hacks of the DNC and John Podesta e-mails and that they believe it was on behalf of Trump, wasn’t entirely news. But if they have proof they can show the Electors then awesome because Trump as president is just untenable.
The proof of hacking is easy. If they require proof that it was on behalf of Trump I’m just going to have to point to EVERYTHING TRUMP HAS SAID AND DONE. He even had the nerve to push Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon-Mobil and recipient of Russia’s highest non-Russian honor, AFTER the report came out. If you have a cerebral cortex it’s pretty obvious that Trump and Putin are sitting in a tree k-i-s-s-i-n-g. And the why is obvious too.
1. There’s always money, lots of oil money – which is the bulk of Russia’s wealth, so they’d love for the price of oil to go up and for no impediments to drilling in the Arctic, etc.
2. Like all of the white nationalist movements Putin is financing in Europe, his dream is an ineffectual NATO headed by executives that are friendly to Russia and owe him their elections.
Baffling to me that this “smart” guy Trump didn’t chill out and act presidential after November 8th, in an attempt to fool the Electors. It’s as if he doesn’t realize his election isn’t final until the Electors meet. Or they’re rigged too?
Now even McConnell recognizes this all has to be investigated, even if he’s downplaying a special committee.
