More than a year no evidence of Russian Collusion, while Democrat Involvement is ignored?
SENATE DEMS COLLUDE WITH RUSSIA BY BLOCKING MAGNITSKY ACT FIGURE'S TESTIMONYJuly 27, 2017
Senate Democrats used a parliamentary maneuver Wednesday to cut short a high-profile hearing, where a key witness was set to testify on Russia's misdeeds and also raise fresh allegations against the company behind the infamous anti-Trump dossier.
Bill Browder, the CEO and co-founder of Hermitage Capital, was set to tell the Senate Judiciary Committee that the co-founder of the firm Fusion GPS was hired to conduct a "smear campaign" against him. Further, he planned to testify the campaign was orchestrated by Natalia Veselnitskaya -- the Russian attorney who sought the highly scrutinized Trump Tower meeting with Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and then-campaign chairman Paul Manafort in June 2016.
Browder released written testimony ahead of the hearing but his public remarks were delayed when Democrats invoked the "two-hour rule" to protest Republican efforts to repeal ObamaCare. The seldom-used rule bars committees from meeting more than two hours after the full Senate begins a session.
“I don’t know if the minority is intentionally trying to block testimony that may be critical of a firm behind the unverified Trump dossier, but I’ll bet two bits that had Paul Manafort or Donald Trump, Jr. appeared at today’s hearing, it would not have been prematurely shut down," Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a statement. "The Democrat leadership is playing politics, plain and simple."
The Dems really don't want to touch the subject of Fusion GPS. Or delve into any details about the Magnitsky Act. That way lies accusations of collusion. And to protect themselves, they attempted a cover-up. And as they ought to remember, it's not the crime, it's the cover-up.
The entire Democrat line up of those involved, all Obama donors, all embarrassed by anti-Trump comments made on their e-mails, all having knowledge of criminal activity and having covered it up from Uranium One to Hillary to Iran Nuke Deal! A house of cards awaits the fall!
I read the 31 page indictment and think that this is not a negative thing for the Trump administration or those who were involved with the campaign.
In fact, it shows that the firework display that the mainstream media and the Democratic Party thought that they were going to provide to the American people in this special counsel investigation has turned out to be a huge dud so far.
If you look at the actual indictment, there is nothing that implicates the 2016 presidential campaign that Manafort is charged with. There are charges stemming from 2016 and 2017, but they all relate to statements that Manafort and Gates made related to prior conduct.
President Trump has been very blunt about saying how there was no collusion with the Russian government. If anything, this indictment bulwarks his assertion that there was no collusion and the special council is misguided.
The deception, the intentional failure to reveal the facts, the destruction of evidence being allowed is staggering, but the bought off US media hangs onto the non-existent hope that somehow they will incriminate President Trump! The disinformation campaign is staggering!
