Daily Kos link to Ruth May Dallas Morning News article about Russian money filling the campaign coffers the likes of GOP big hitters McConnell, Graham, McCain...just for starters. Some of this Russian money btw was from the Putin VEB crony also linked to Kushner and at least one of his undisclosed meetings on some far away island, boardroom, yacht or all of the above.
Mays reporting perhaps gives us some idea of the scope and details and challenges of the Mueller investigation. It's truly staggering.
So, what hurdle have these men in the GOP, all initially reluctant to address Trump's ties to Putin, managed to clear in order to stand up to Trump on healthcare and allow investigations into Trump ties to Russia to proceed? Are they throwing Trump under the bus before he can get in and drive all its eight wheels over them in front of the White House, so they can come out looking better? Have they made a secret deal with Dems, like - pretend you're trying to pass healthcare legislation just to narrowly defeat it in dramatic fashion? Did they promise the Dems across the aisle bipartisan cooperation to save the cores and legitimacy of both parties? Are they cutting deals within the senate that let the house GOP, who also took the same campaign contributions, now take the rap?
Or, are they just hoping that most of the public focus stays on Trump while their own doings go unnoticed?
