Nunes' compromising financial ties with Russia. Yep. Of course. Again.

http://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/3/26/1647428/-BOMBSHELL-Devin-...

Say it ain't so! Folks, we've been bamboozed, er...bamboozled yet again.

All this conflict of interest deep pockets business is, of course, the darker side of globalization coupled with slack governance requirements of people running for and holding public offices. That Trump was even allowed to step one foot into the White House without divulging his financial ties shows how deep the Republican party has been compromised with questionable holdings of their own. Nunes should not even have been allowed to chair the Intel committee investigation into Russian hacking of our elections if he had only one single dime invested in the country in question. That ALL his net worth is tied up in a business that requires a close allegiance to Putin...

The winery sells to Russia and nothing to NATO. We'd need to dig more to find out if it's likely that the Russian purchases are a favor.

IT'S CALLED MONEY LAUNDERING!!!!

Russian oligarchs are paying outrageously obscene sums for Western (American) goods and real estate in order to convert embezzled dirty Russian money into clean Western cash.

The problem for most of these greedy bumbling idiots, like Nunes, is they really don't know who or what they're dealing with.

Some of these greedy fools will begin to go missing or turn up as corpses when the kidnappings and murders begin to occur here in America....

This will be especially true when the investigations start to  unravel and reveal the names and sources of the nefarious schemes and conspiracies.

There won't be enough immunity, witness protection, or witness relocation to go around.

If you don't believe me just watch!

koshersalaami, yes IF we wanted him investigated on corruption charges, right?  BUT,  I'd settle for recusal as chair of intel committee due to conflict of interest, which is already evident, or how about his complete abdication of his position given his decision not to reveal his conflicts of interest in a matter of national security that even ttangentially touched upon his potential for wealth, such as the laying down of further sanctions which might impede trade in unpredictable ways. His repeated actions shows his lack of judgment (if not character).

Yesterday people all over Russia were protesting government corruption in the streets:

Russian police say about 500 people were arrested in the protests Sunday, but a human rights group published a list of detainees that has more than 1,000 names. On Monday, the European Union called on Russian authorities to release the demonstrators.

The Kremlin has lashed out at protest organizers, blaming them for putting lives at risk by inviting people to unsanctioned demonstrations. Putin’s spokesman chided the organizers for inciting illegal acts.

“The Kremlin respects people’s civic stance and their right to voice their position,” Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters. “We can’t express the same respect to those who consciously misled people and who consciously did it yesterday and provoked illegal actions.”

JMAC1949, i'm thinking, given today's technology and level of both greed and malice civilian and political, Russia's plight and our plight abd Europe's plight are now inextricably woven together with the iron strands of doublespeak.

Mr. Powell seems to make sense plus linking a political statement to a Bruno Mars line adds a little smile to a scary topic.

Birdinhand 1,  inform the ignorant among us such as myself, pld. What's the line?!

just to add to this thread - this angle of Nunes financially needing things smoothed over with Russia given his stocks in a business who's only overseas sales are with Switzerland and Russia, will go largely igmored. My issue is not his investment. My issue is his financial conflict of interest on top of his political and personal conflicts of interests, coupled with his often dishonest statements about not knowing key people like Roger Stone while his being on Trump's transition team AND his furtive meeting at the White House to view so called evidence against Pres. Obama, then running back the next day pretending he hadn't just been there to announce his discovery. That is the old ruse of slipping out the back door, coming around to the front door and announcing that ya just got home!
