Rachel Maddow digs up more evidence to suggest that the Russians are continuing to exert influence over policy in this country.

Courtesy of Raw Story: 

“What’s getting to be, I think, particularly unsettling, is that simultaneously, we are … number one, nailing down more direct connections between the Trump campaign and the Russian government at the time the Russian government was influencing our election,” Maddow began. “Number two, at the same time, we are also starting to see what may be signs of continuing influence in our country. Not just during the campaign but during the administration. Basically, signs of what could be a continuing operation.”

Maddow once again revisits the fact that the Trump campaign demanded that the language in the GOP platform concerning Russia invasion in Ukraine be softened.

She then pointed out that this was predicted in that infamous Russian dossier.

Rachel goes on to suggest that the Russians did not help Trump win this election for kicks, they wanted a return on their investment. And she further suggests that this recent Wikileaks dump of CIA data, which could severely impact the agency's ability to do its job, is also part of that return on their initial investment.

“The Russian government attacked our election,” Maddow said. “The Russian government was in contact with multiple campaign sources while they were doing it. Russian nemeses in the American government, U.S. State Department, the CIA, are not fairing well since Donald Trump came to power. Is the operation that Russia started during the campaign — is it over? Or are they still running it? Are we still in this now?

Remember Trump has still tweeted NOTHING about this latest Wikileaks dump.

Rachel Maddow is currently doing some of the best investigative journalism available on cable news concerning Trump's connection to the Kremlin and I think that it behooves all of us to pay attention to what she uncovers, because she is tying these threads together every night.

    There are currently miscreants running OUR government that should rightfully be shot for treason ..

    Don't miss Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell. Both are on MSNBC - Cable - in the evenings - Monday through Friday. Both are anti Trump and providing factual information regarding Trump and those surrounding him!

    I am sorry, but it doesn’t take a PhD to figure out there will be continuing influence by the russians in our government.

    The russians haven’t met their goal of turning the USA into a third world country yet. However they are getting a lot of help by all the republicans.

    The more important question is how long are the republicans going to pretend nothing is going on and how much are they willing to destroy before they do something about it?

    St.Ronnie must be rolling over in his grave continuously.

      Also important - how long are those of us who realize it going to just close our eyes to it?
      Can we do a class action suit? Are these assholes immune to us doing this??

    Rachel just proved tonight that Pence lied at a hearing about when he knew Flynn was a foreign agent. Please appoint a special prosecutor!

      But there you go. A special prosecutor appointed by whom? They are all so in bed with each other, and do we honestly expect them to tell the truth under oath?

      If the DNC was intent on taking away the freedom of your vote, they should at least have jammed someone more electable down the throat of all the democrats than Hillary and Co and all their baggage. Terrible candidate. Complete incompetence and hubris by the DNC. You are going to have to wait 4 years 4:32. Plenty of time to work on the Democratic Party and the DNC, or like a lot of us, leave the party. It only serves the elites of the party currently, and pays nothing but lip service to the people.

    These crooks must know that their days in this scam are over. Session released several Judges that President Obama assigned. And Trump is quiet. Tilleson recuses himself from issues. All of them should be ordered to pause and not do another freakin thing until the new president and staff are in place. Americans are preparing to fire that lying pos and his liar staff. lock them up.

  10. Let's not focus solely on the Russian shit (which isn't going to go anywhere let alone impeachment) when there is so much other shit the Republicans are sneaking by while we are distracted with the big shiny ball.

    "Over the past 25 years, the federal government’s Energy Star program has become a valuable marker for all kinds of industries. Real estate agents upsell buildings that have been Energy Star-certified as energy efficient. Homeowners seek out its blue logo on electricity-guzzling appliances and devices.

    But the White House has proposed eliminating funding for Energy Star and instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to “begin developing legislative options and associated groundwork for transferring ownership and implementation of Energy Star to a non-governmental entity,” according to a draft budget the energy news service E&E News obtained this week.

    The cuts come as part of President Donald Trump administration’s effort to channel federal spending away from a variety of other programs and toward a $54 billion military buildup. But Energy Star helps save even more than the $57 million that the federal government spends on it each year, according to more than a dozen business executives, building consultants and energy advocates The Huffington Post interviewed this week."

    You can't have Energy Star or people might save energy or even, horrors, believe in climate change.

      He also offered the contract to build THE WALL to his friend and sometime business partner, Jorge Perez of Related Companies.

      The biggest construction project since WWII and there's not going to be a bid and Trump offered the gig to a sometime business partner.

      Easily -- EASILY -- a deal could have been made that if he gets the contract, then the next time he builds a tower in Miami, he'll brand it as a Trump property and give the family a much more favorable deal.

      And no one will know.

      Except that Jorge Perez said no because he thinks the wall is stupid.

      I'm just saying that its bullshit that no one seems to care about this.

    2. Anonymous7:38 PM

      Energy Star is such a small part of what he's doing to the EPA; basically they are going to gut the whole thing.

      Also, under promises he's not keeping, he's not forcing Keystone to use American steel for their pipeline. Won't this piss off those middle American patriots?

    3. Anonymous7:32 AM

      Why not offer the Energy Star program to the Koch brothers? They'd love to stall it.

    Irony: The very sociopathic liberals who dedicated their lives to lying about Bristol et al were the people who first say what a greedy piece of shit Gino was and how he was using her, and were proud of Bristol for not letting him use her. They also saw her 3 yr old son say more than once "I don't like Gino," something she wishes she would've listened to because kids know who is a good person and who is bad. Gino is a bad person who was never respected women and thinks of them as his bitches because he's needy (not as needy as Levi famously is)

    Bristol's too nice for douchebags and too forgiving of people's sin against her.

      Say- Why not get more bang for your buck? Forget posting on this blog, start a tweet romance with Trump! He's such a great listener surely he will find a strapping young KGB agent for Bristol and get you a slot soliciting for his health care plan (as an inpatient).
