Dem Rep: Trump-Russia Probe Is "Running Joke" Between Democrats

The Trump-Russia probe is a "running joke" between Rep. Jim Himes (D-CT) and fellow Rep. Cheri Bustos (D-IL).

Himes made the comment on a Tuesday morning appearance with MSNBC's Morning Joe while making a point about how their constituents don't care about Russia

When asked by the Washington Post's Robert Costa why Democrats aren't campaigning on the Russia probe, Himes had this to say: 

HIMES: “…Here’s the thing. My good friend [Dem Rep.] Cheri Bustos who represents a very tough district in Illinois, we have sort of a running joke going in the mornings, which is, she’s got a district very different from mine and I represent Fairfield County, Connecticut. She’s in the heartland in a distinct that we need to figure out how to win again. Every Monday morning when I see Cheri and we come up there’s a little bit of laughter and she says, ‘you know what? My constituents are still not asking me about Russia.

Himes says that American are worried about "kitchen table issues," and that Democrats will "pay a cost at the polls" if they can't understand this. 

“A case that is made here inside the Beltway rarely I think has a lot of resonance to middle-class families sitting around in small towns in Ohio and Michigan,” he said.

Wrap it up

One of the key Democrats behind the Trump-Russia push has been Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), who recently admitted on The View that no evidence of Russian collusion exists. 

Rep. Adam Schiff conceded Thursday there is still no evidence President Trump or his campaign colluded with Russia to win the election, and made a point of distancing himself from any charges of treason against the president. -The Federalist

Considering that no collusion has been found during nearly two years of ongoing investigations, and the Russian "Troll farm" from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's February indictment turns out to have bought most of their Facebook ads after the election (and didn't favor a particular candidate) - the Russia "witch hunt" as President Trump calls it is quickly becoming a national embarrassment. 

Even former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice thinks it's time to stick a fork in the Russia investigation.

Even CNN employees caught on undercover camera by Project Veritas admitted that network is pushing the Russia story for ratings, and that it's a big nothingburger.

But hey, maybe tone-deaf Democrats will continue to robotically parrot the Russia narrative through Midterms and again in 2020, while increasingly turned off voters will continue to see through this national embarrassment designed to preserve Hillary Clinton's halo.

Dem Rep: Trump-Russia Probe Is "Running Joke" Between Democrats

My response: The PROBLEM with this entire situation is that NO ONE is accountable for anything. Without consequences for wrong doing, behavior will NEVER change.

WASTE, CORRUPTION, THEFT and IMMORALITY will be the normal modus operandi where TRUST and HONESTY are no where to be found.

As a side note, below are qualities that each and every elected official should possess in order to maintain the constitutional republic.

"Select capable men and women from all the people--men and women who fear God, who are trustworthy and who hate dishonest gain."

Finally, a warning from founding father John Adams to Massachusetts Militia, 11 October 1798

Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious People. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. 

Think about it as the 2018 midterm elections approach. Personally, I can't think of ONE SINGLE DEMOCRAT who would even come close to qualifying.

Choose wisely America, for the days are EVIL.

Let's break this down as simply as possible.

Mueller, Comey, McCabe, Rosenstein, Strzok, Page, Clinton and Obama, not to mention Lynch, Powers and the rest of the 5th Column Marxist Democrats, are guilty of treason against the Republic. They used their political positions to attempt to subvert an election and then when this failed, they attempted to overturn that election with blatant falsehoods, garnered from hostile actors of a foreign state.

Get it?! They should all hang. No, that's not hyperbole. THEY. SHOULD. ALL. FUCKING. HANG.

They damn well know this. Mueller's job is to delay, to stall, to keep flailing about with his bullshit "investigation," while the Democrat vote-rigging machine figures out a way to steal the midterms, to put the Democrats back in control of Congress. All they need is the House; do you think the RINOs will vote not to convict if the House impeaches Trump? McShitstain will soil himself with glee as he casts that vote.

The Democrats are in a blind, pants-shitting panic, absolutely desperate, because once Mueller has to admit that he just spent untold millions of dollars conducting the biggest political snipe hunt in world history, they're done. If my suspicion is correct, Gowdy is not seeking re-election so he can be the Special Prosecutor who formally investigates HillBama & Pals for their high treason. If the Gowdy we've seen in hearings is anything other than controlled opposition, all of them go to jail, and some may in fact be executed for their crimes. (They all deserve to hang, and that's a fact.)

For everyone who says voting doesn't matter - this year, this election, it fucking well does. You'd better DRAG everyone you know, who is a reliable anti-leftist vote, to the polls this November. If the Democrat parasites succeed in stealing back Congress, everyone ho opposes Marxism is going to be openly and overtly targeted by them, to be harassed into oblivion. There will be no place to bug out to. We'll all be tracked by satellite, drone, whatever it takes.

The Marxist filth know that the American citizenry has rejected them, and that more people are being redpilled every minute, at this point. Think about what Marxists have done, all over the world, to take control of societies which did not want them to do so. Anyone who thinks "It can't happen here" is fatally mistaken...

Obviously C. Rice wants the Russia Delusion to end before it ends the Dem party. Rothschild/ Soros relative Schiff is the last Dem still out there pushing it. 

And per Schiff on the View it all rests on (1) Papadopoulos drunken rant in Australia, and (2) a 3rd rate Russian lawyer visiting Trump tower for 20 minutes in June 2016 asking for sanctions relief from Jr. with a Obama operative as translator.

Bustos IS the Swamp! Her hubby was appointed "Temporary" sheriff of Rock Island County, Illinois when the Sheriff, (in his official capacity) went TU molesting and stalking an illegal for sex.

 

Shazam, without an election, Jerry Bustos became permanent Sheriff once enough palms were greased, promises made.  This ain't beanbag it's Illinois. Nothing changes, ever.

I am not sure why you call them Marxists. 

Because it's what they are.

The Mensheviks became the Euro-American left. The Trotskyites became the neocons.

These vermin have been attempting to subvert all of Western Civilization, to collapse it into a Soviet-style Marxist hellhole, over which they can rule as self-declared gods, for over a century now.

Fascism arose in response to Communist murder and depravity. But, as often happens, they became the very monsters they fought, to a large degree. Do keep in mind, however, that a lot of what you've been told were Nazi crimes were actually committed by Stalin's communists, as well as the (((Mensheviks))) working clandestinely. And there's also a good bit of what we've all been told that has NEVER been corroborated; that's why people who publicly question the official narrative of WWII are thrown in prison, in dozens of countries...truth needs no such defense...

People on the right with limited vocabulary and limited intellect call everything they dislike "communist" (or on the left, "fascist"). It is a great disservice to truth in both cases. It is, in fact, analogous to fake news. Most of the principals are crony capitalists, a term that is very big on cronyism and very small on capitalism. Most of the enablers, from the Clintons on down are just very expensive whores.

Who is going to track everyone down? The hunters are already the hunted. The US military is already been purged and turned at the top. The midterms will be flanged up immediately when the indictments start rolling in and the black hats start hunting cracks to hide in. I’m going to be surprised if you don’t see Sessions start growling on cue. The space wars have been basically won and the 12 carriers were all recalled to ports and upgraded with the alien technology. Obama is in detention and maybe Soros is pushing up daisies. Hillary and McStain have fake boots covering their ankle bracelets. Break out some fancy champagne and toast freedom!

The FCC will revoke licenses if they don’t tell and print factual reports and cut the FAKES. Then the snowflakes will hide their red stupid faces. The only chore left will be to revoke tenure for the leisure crowd and kick the commies out of the universities./p>

I don't find dragging the entire nation through a pointless and divisive MANUFACTURED FRAUD for the amusement of the political elites to be particularly funny.

If it's that big a joke you shouldn't have to think too hard about standing up on the floor and saying "enough of this shit already, there are REAL issues that need to be addressed".  If you know it's a fraud, find others of like mind, get them together and SAY SO.  

You want to gain respect?  DO THAT.  You will get respect regardless of your party.  Hell, you might even get reelected.  Because right now people like me would rather see people like you die in a fire than listen to one more fucking word out of your lying mouth.

the guy oklahoma sent to replace dr. coburn in the US senate, this hapless fuckwit lankford, is nothing but a piece of shit.  he sounds like a cock sucking new yorker.  i don't know what the fuck happens to people up there.  do they have lead water pipes in deecee?

the congressional representative from the eastern part of oklahoma is a shit for brains mother fucker named mullin.  he ran a plumbing business, shit runs downhill and payday is friday.  he campaigned on grass root understanding of what people needed on the community level.  that mother fucker went to washington and had his head so fucking far up the HNIC ass, if the HNIC stopped suddenly mullin would have to be surgically removed.  he sounds like he's from chicago or fucking boston.

Adam Schiff masturbates to Russian porn every night.

Beyond that, this is a N.W.O. witch hunt, 100X worse than Watergate.

The only reason this didn't die on the vine a year ago is the left/right Establishment having wet dreams.

It's not a joke. It's not funny. While it is most definitely a farce, this situation is nothing less than the first coup attempt in American history. But, given the balless scrotum that we call "Congress," I expect nothing to happen. We are watching the precipitous collapse of the rule of law in the United States. The rule of law has been steadily eroded over the years, but this is the black swan event. This is the singular event that is causing the system to self-destruct. Corruption can last only so long before it finally destroys the system, and we are watching the end-result of corruption that has been unmitigated for decades. The unfortunate part is that the United States collectively voted the perpetrators into office.
