A Grand Coverup- Complicit GOP Signals End To Russia Investigation.

Bring on #TheBlueWave!

The Republicans in Congress are complicit in the Russiagate scandal. When you know about a crime, and you help to cover it up, you have chosen to become part of it, and that is exactly what is going on now.

It has always been important to keep the Republicans out of power, at least in the post-Lincoln history of America, but never like this since Nixon. Bring on #TheBlueWave.

The freshest outrage is that Rep. Mike Conaway(R-TX), the Republican leading the committee’s Russia investigation, as well as other House Intelligence Committee Republicans have made it clear they are ready to end the investigative phase of their Russia probe and move on to writing the final report.

Trump’s first campaign manager Corey Lewandowski is scheduled to be interviewed by the House Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

It’s looking like he could be one of the last major witnesses to appear as part of the panel’s Russia investigation. Conaway has said that he hasn’t ruled out calling additional witnesses, but he’s hinted that no big names remain on his list.

The ostensible reasons they are giving as to why the Committee should end its investigation, right as the Russiagate scandal hits its highest pitch, are insane. They sound audibly ridiculous.
Rep. Tom Rooney of Florida pointed to the leaks of White House communications director Hope Hicks’ testimony last week as a reason to end the investigation, while Rep. Pete King of New York says the committee has learned all it can.
“To me, I don’t see anything else that’s out there that hasn’t been explored,” King told CNN.

At any rate, the end may have come in the opinion of the House Intelligence Republicans, but Democrats know better. Leaders like Adam Schiff quickly stood up to oppose that crooked and treasonous policy. On Thursday he made clear that we need to talk to the attendees of that meeting.

There are still dozens of witnesses the panel ought to be calling, of course, as well as numerous subpoenas it should issue or enforce. For that panel to do otherwise would be for them to do a tremendous disservice, both to justice in this case and to America’s national interest. Let it never be forgotten.
Democrats have pointed to two new events this week as reasons to keep calling witnesses. Sam Nunberg’s media blitz and reports that Putin-owned Russian investor George Nader attended secret meetings with the Russians in the Seychelles archipelago during the Trump transition.

The New York Times, on Tuesday, reported Special Counsel Robert Mueller has subpoenaed Lebanese-American businessman George Nader. Nader is reportedly cooperating. He testified before a grand jury last week.

This testimony ended up being quite explosive. It brought the focus back to a shady January 2017 meeting held during the Trump transition between Nader and Erik Prince, founder of the private security firm Blackwater and informal Trump adviser.

The secretive meeting was also speculated to be a potential backdoor link between the Trump universe and the Kremlin. They routed the meeting through the United Arab Emirates. The whole thing was one giant misdirection on the part of those involved.

On Wednesday the Washington Post’s reporting confirmed that speculation.

Robert Mueller’s investigators have now discovered solid evidence that this meeting was, in fact, an attempt to establish a back channel between Trump and the Kremlin.

The full implications of what this means will take some time to come out, but in the meantime, one thing is for sure.  Erik Prince, the Trump emissary at the off-book rendezvous, has been lying. And quite a few others have been also.

“Last year, Prince told lawmakers—and the news media—that his Seychelles meeting with Kirill Dmitriev, the head of a Russian government-controlled wealth fund, was an unplanned, unimportant encounter that came about by chance because he happened to be at a luxury hotel in the Indian Ocean island nation with officials from the United Arab Emirates,” the Post reported.

The waves of the Russiagate scandal has rocked America in successive blows recently, and all of this comes as the freshest breaker. Ever since Rick Gates agreed to cooperate the house has been coming in on Donald Trump everywhere. The writing is on the wall for his administration.

But it also falls to us to never let anyone forget how the Republicans have sabotaged this investigation at every turn. How they made excuses, looked the other way, and when necessary, covered up.

The manner in which they have conducted themselves is in many ways even more repugnant than that of Trump, because he is fundamentally slow and limited and incapable of doing any better. The likes of Mitch McConnell are lifelong professional politicians. They can’t pretend to hide behind ignorance.

It is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that the majority of Americans would join in our crusade in earnest if they could somehow be shown the bare bones of the truth on these matters through all the noise and misdirection the conservatives deluge our country in.

Only refusing to give in and go back to sleep can we hope to secure the future of our democracy. We have to raise awareness of what they are doing with all the vigor we can bring to the table.

This is not Hitler’s Germany. This is not Putin’s Russia.

Nunberg Meltdown! The Russiagate Show Continues.

#NunbergMeltdown

It’s been an action-packed week in the Russiagate saga, even though it’s only Tuesday.

On Monday Trump’s personal attorney Michael Cohen was going around making some complaints. Apparently, Trump ordered Cohen to make a six-figure payment to a porn star he allegedly had an affair with. Cohen is said to be unhappy that he hasn’t been reimbursed.

Then Russiagate took a trip to Bangkok and a steamy Thai detention center where a “sex coach” named Anastasia Vashukevich is claiming to have detailed insider knowledge of Russian meddling in the US election. She told CNN she wants to cooperate with US investigators and asked for our help in resisting Putin.

These events were a mere prelude to one of the wildest moments in television history.

Robert Mueller subpoenaed former Trump staffer Sam Nunberg to appear before the grand jury.

Nunberg was asked to turn over emails, texts and other communications with ten of his Trump campaign associates, including Trump. Former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and outgoing White House communications director Hope Hicks were named as well.

The subpoena covers a period of time beginning in November 2015 and running through the present, according to a subpoena dated Feb. 27 that was obtained by Bloomberg News.

That wouldn’t be strange in itself. Nunberg has been interviewed by Mueller before. It was Nunberg’s reaction that made the news.

“Screw that,” Nunberg told CNN’s Gloria Borger. “Why do I have to go? Why? For what?”

The guy freaked out completely. He started shooting his mouth off in every direction. It made for one of the most unusual twists and turns in this whole rotten Russiagate scandal. In a torrential outburst of denials, accusations, and slanders, Nunberg had all kinds of things to say.

He described White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders as “unattractive” and a “fat slob”.

He vowed to defy the grand jury subpoena.

He dared Mueller to arrest him.

He claimed Mueller believes that Donald Trump is a Manchurian candidate.

He even loudly questioned his interviewer as to whether the subpoena would have happened to a Democrat.

Millennial Democrats readers will not require a reminder of the clamor surrounding Hillary Clinton’s emails.

Nunberg also spent a good part of his interview playing the oracle, apparently attempting to interpret some of the questions Mueller asked him the last time. He gave up some interesting stuff.
Among other things, he said he believes that the special counsel has something solid on Trump as connected to the Russian meddling effort on the 2016 election. “I suspect they suspect something about him,” were the words he used.
We’ve got a few suspicions of our own.
That one seems pretty clear.
Nunberg appeared to confirm as much in an interview on MSNBC. “I’m not going to cooperate when they want me to come in to a grand jury for them to insinuate that Roger Stone was colluding with [WikiLeaks founder] Julian Assange. Roger is my mentor. Roger is like family,” he said.
It’s a safe bet that Roger wasn’t very happy to hear his relative spouting off.
Nunberg’s meltdown is a clear indication of the stress he’s under, and people do tend to ramble on when they’re stressed out. But regardless of duress, the episode provided many hints of why the investigation is so terrifying to the malignant mutant in the White House.
Former FBI agent Josh Campbell called Nunberg’s display “the Great Unravelling.”
“Up until this point Mueller’s team has been so tight, we haven’t seen the leaks so it has been very difficult to see what he’s looking for,” Campbell said. “I think it’s incredible, seeing today this episode unfold before our eyes because it gives us that insight into where the investigation is ultimately headed.”
The incident has overshadowed a potentially far more serious discovery that came out over the weekend, namely, that Mueller is now investigating whether or not the United Arab Emirates attempted to buy influence in the Trump campaign. The scope of this thing just keeps getting wider.
Recent reports indicate that the U.A.E. has been licking its chops at Jared Kushner for a long time, actively planning how to profit from manipulating him. Current and former U.S. administrative representatives spoke based on intelligence reports about the matter.
It is the opinion of Millennial Democrats that the whole world was probably shopping with Donald Trump’s campaign, and it’ll be interesting to see where this one goes.
In the meantime, it’s up to us to raise awareness of the new information, and to keep a close eye on the developing situation.
America is seeing itself in the mirror as a result of this whole thing with Russiagate. We didn’t think it could happen to us. This kind of thing has only happened to small third world countries at the hands of superpowers previously. It’s important we stay awake. We’ve become a soft target for the rest of the world.
As this article was being completed, the news that Nunberg is backing down from his boastful challenges to the special counsel. “I’m going to cooperate with whatever they want,” Nunberg told CNN Tuesday in a phone interview.
What a surprise.
