    Comrades Nunes, Johnson, Mitch is all prime suspects…..makes u wonder how much they got paid to be a conduit between WH and Putin!

    • @John DiGiacomo : That’s part of it, but far from the whole

      Ash Roswell, that’s the part that counts. I don’t need to go into an entire dissertation on each.

    • @John DiGiacomo : But, do you know? I didn’t ask for a, “dissertation.” You’re aware of the murders?

      Derkach, wasn’t involved the murder was his father’s act Derepaska may have been involved in the murder of a banker. There is no proof either was involved, and no charges filed against either. The involvement in our elections are what concerns me. I’m not making light of the murders, but there is no proof with Derepaska and Derkach isn’t responsible for his father’s crimes.

  2. There are numerous members of the GOP who need to be investigated closely for their ties to russian money and influence. There are more traitors than just Manford and Flynn.

    • John DiGiacomo | March 22, 2021 at 6:48 AM | Reply

      Henry Annis, nothing Flynn did was legal in his position. His contacts with Russia weren’t approved by the President. He was attempting to kidnap A Turkish cleric in New Jersey, to return to Turkey for torture and execution. He didn’t register as a foreign agent, and was still one as he took the National Security advisor job. Flynn had over 100 charges pending and was “let off” with two after agreeing to cooperate, he reneged on the agreement. DoJ can still his son for his role, and may be able to reinstate the other charges.

    • @John DiGiacomo He did not need Obama’s approval he was on Trump’s team as they prepare for the new President to take office.

    • John DiGiacomo | March 22, 2021 at 11:06 AM | Reply

      Henry Annis, wrong he still needed Obama’s permission to negotiate on behalf of the United States. Trump was advised in December of problems surrounding Flynn, and Trump ignored it. As President, Obama had final say on negotiations made in the name of the United States, regardless of the incoming administration.

    • @John DiGiacomo check your facts, the DOJ dropped charges because the FBI targeted Flynn and entrapped him for a perfect legal contact.

    • John DiGiacomo | March 22, 2021 at 11:52 AM | Reply

      The charges were dropped under a plea deal with the DOJ for cooperation with the investigation that he reneged on. Trump’s pardon may or may not cover the other charges, and doesn’t cover his son. President-elect has no authority to authorize any diplomatic action without permission from the sitting president. Permission is granted usually as a courtesy, but it was never requested, his Russian trip was unauthorized and was easily documented without any illegal action.

  3. There needs to be an Internal Investigation on Nunes activities in 2019 and 2020.

    • @Gina Kay and many more

    • I totally agree. Nunes has been suing numerous news outlets and I bet he isn’t paying to sue. It’s the taxpayers who are paying for these frivolous lawsuits. He’s suing a fictional cow on twitter for hurting his little feelings!

    • Robert Murrell | March 18, 2021 at 4:00 PM | Reply

      Don’t forget that a delegation of republicans met with the Russians in Russia right after diaper filling Don was elected.

    • George B. Wolffsohn | March 19, 2021 at 12:03 AM | Reply

      It’s way too broad a problem to treat by just investigating Nuñes in a limited portion of his career.
      What about the rest of the traitors ?

      @Roy Polloi FACTS 💯

    • @TheDiamond2009 Mahalo nui! nui loa!!! I really appreciate seeing a great mind like yours take the time to cast pearls to swine, even if only to receive the immature drivel of a spoiled rotten college kid in return. As painfully obvious as this whole political situation is, constantly seeing and hearing the propaganda put forth by the leftists, the fake stream media and all of its complicit cohorts does tend to weigh on the conscious mind. Being surrounded by useful idiots that have been so well brainwashed that they are simply incapable of rational discussion is really sickening and somewhat demoralizing. My mind is constantly blown by people that truly believe that they are well informed, are genuinely well meaning, but simply cannot think for themselves, even when they are presented with an argument as purely logical and obvious as the one you just made.

      Thank you

    We expect Russia to attempt all kinds of shenanigans .. that is not alarming… What is alarming is that members of the United States Congress… complied with Russia and spread the lies !

    • John DiGiacomo | March 22, 2021 at 6:39 AM | Reply

      Kathi, the president can declassify information without doing anything “wrong” that’s why he gave Kislyak “sensitive” information in their first meeting, and gave him Israeli intelligence in their second meeting. It’s why our intelligence agencies and allies were reluctant to give Trump classified information. We have no idea what went on in his private meetings with Putin. He banned his assistants, took the notes from American interpreters, and worked with Russian interpreters only on other occasions.

  7. Holy Mackinaw! So everything and anything that people believed about the Republicans for the past four years is absolutely true.!!!

  8. They haven’t lost their way.
    They’ve always been this way. They just got permission from a looney orange dummy to be what they are.

    • they were like that way before bad orange man. orange man just saw that and took advantage of it.

      @S. D. yes Russia help
      Them won the election, also recieved money from Russia.

    • If you can remember your civics class from high school.Trumps entire four years has been absolutely disgusting.

    • S. D. – Trump’s son, son-in-law, and campaign chairman met with surrogates of the Russian government to trade illegally obtained dirt for sanction relief. I’ll never understand why just that one thing alone didn’t end his presidency.

  9. Americans shouldn’t be surprised the entire globe knew there was Russian interference… and that Giuliani was used by the Russians ..

  10. Still waiting to hear more about the NRA and Russian money distribution.

    • Remember ron johnson was one of the people that went to russian for a NRA gun conferences attendees with that woman that did time here for being a spy! TRAITORS SMH

    • If the kremlin supports the NRA, why isn’t Russia awash in guns like the U.S. is? They use such organizations to divide and destroy the U.S. Putin chuckles every time we have a mass shooting. He loves it, and encourages vehement protection of the the right to bear arms, just not for Russians.

  11. They weren’t so much targeted as they were making targets of themselves. Liars deal in lies, for whatever reason and the GOP is packed with liars to it’s ears. I don’t believe anything can save them from themselves.

  12. What is alarming is that THEY COOPERATED.

    Our institutions are suffused with TRAITORS.

    What’s more alarming is that Republicans willingly did it.

    • Well, that’s only surprising if you think Republicans have any ethics or sense of morality. Who believes that anymore?

  14. Ron Johnson received a dispatch from a REGISTERED RUSSIAN SPY, and he has not been IMPEACHED?


    • Enemy within…Ron Rubles is compromised…drain Duh SWUMP

    • John DiGiacomo | March 21, 2021 at 6:57 PM | Reply

      Dave Robertson, Trump gave secret information to Kislyak ” inadvertently ” but that’s OK, because the president can declassify information, it the becomes only “sensitive”. So now do you think impeachment might be useful.

    • Great point! It’s up to us to demand action from our representatives. They seem to be so jaded by the constant treachery of the GOP that they need reminding? We executed the Rosenbergs for less! 👍

    • @Israel Guerra : We literally executed media traitors after WWII, for less than what Fox does now! Did you see their coverage, just the other day, about Putin’s, “challenge,” to have a live debate with Joe Biden? They were blatantly against America! Totally on Putin’s side! They’re not even pretending any more! They deserve Lord Haw Haw’s fate . . .

    • @Dave Robertson : It’s a lot easier with a Senator than president, if the FBI charges him with Sedition first! Let’s see if the GOP are willing to declare for Russia against America? See how many elections they win after that? Let the American people see who they voted for?

  15. As Joe Biden said … we are fighting for the soul of America.

    • @Jereme Erxleben : You’re not rich enough to be effected by the tax laws, so don’t concern yourself with my problems. I’m happy to pay my fair share. But, why are you Russia First and America Last? Are you on their payroll, or just a racist fascist?

    • @Polar Opposite : Don’t worry, Karen. Things might be worse in your, “shithole,” country, but Americans are delighted with their emergency aid cheques, their vaccines, and having democratic allies again. Why are you racist anyway? And why do you hate America? Show us on the Dolly where Biden harmed your, “feelings.” 😉

    • @Marie-Flo Reddy : Why do you hate America, Karen? 🤔

      Jereme Exrleben, I believe the clinical term for your condition is “crazy as a shithouse rat” but don’t quote me. Either way you need to reline your tin foil lined, Made in China MAGA hat and double your meds. Does your “research” involve anything other than right wing conspiracy theories?

  16. Why isn’t Trump and other Republicans paying a price???? They have to pay a penalty!!!!!

    We the people need to demand congress get rid of all involved. This dancing around is disgusting…and not 2 years from now..

    • I start to get very paranoid when I think that they are still be allowed to sit in Congress.

    • @Yatespeare I know you did not reply to me, but I couldn’t agree more. They all need to be expelled or arrested and prosecuted. I don’t know why they are still free to do whatever they want. It’s scary.

    • George B. Wolffsohn | March 21, 2021 at 4:49 PM | Reply

      @Mephistopheles Count Caliostro Recind Citizens United, End ALL gerrymandering, End the use of “superdelegates”. THEN we might have a chance.

    • @Mephistopheles Count Caliostro : Yet, in the last election, the poor DID VOTE and they did it in EPIC NUMBERS, on both sides. That’s why the GOP has abandoned all pretence of being democratic and are desperately rigging all the voting systems they can. So, saying the poor don’t vote, is not only wrong now, but egregious.

    • @Yatespeare : Nunes is the most senior GOP goon on the Intel Committee! I’d say that’s not paranoia, so much as well informed alarm 👍

Stop spreading fake news it’s bad for we the people and lay off the propaganda it makes you all seem very stupid.

  19. Don’t forget that a group of GOP congressmen who ditched the 4th of July celebrations to go to Russia and hang out with Kremlin Officals…

  20. It’s called treason! It won’t stop until charges are filed and people are held accountable.
