I guess our press is as complicit as some fear.

A FULLY VACCINATED COLIN POWELL DIED FROM COVID related complications with Parkinsons and a blood disease that compromises the immunity system.

It's not a crime if the GQP does it.

They're hurriedly moving assets to offshore accounts.

I don't see any reason this needs to be noticed. Why let everyone else involved know that they could be next?

That Les Parnas hasn't died from Covid/Polonium is probably bigger news.  I thought he fell out of a window on to six bullets and got run over by a Russian Crusher from Red Alert 3 (vroom vroom.  I crush)

Putin:  Low lever guy.  Got and tasted my coffee for me.   Felt sorry for him and gave him crap job.

Republicans don't have to show up to testify anymore if they don't feel like it.  Guess someone didn't get the memo.

The media is never going to mess with the money.
1- they get paid by the same donors
2- they don't want to lose access

JHFC, the first paragraph, "A former chief of staff to Rep. Pete Sessions (R-Texas) testified on Monday as a prosecution witness at the criminal campaign-finance trial of an associate of former President Donald Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani.", reads like a goddamned Mad Libs.

That's a red flag as to how tangled up and crooked these farks are. Jayzus, trying to parse that paragraph almost gave me a migraine.

I'll never forget the NPR interview that started all this. The dude straight up BRAGGED about his crimes as if it was something to be proud of and there was no way he would be prosecuted. I was driving home from work. Jaw literally dropped.

If it's too complicated to explain in 7 minutes, it's not reported.

30% of the nation thinks it's just fine that Trump got elected by and for the Russians.
Conservatives look at Russia as their ally in the White struggle to subdue, disenfranchise, and exterminate nonwhite America.

Conservative republicans are more than happy to sell our country out to our enemies just for the chance to rule over our ashes.

The corporate media doesn't want the payday to end, they are getting handouts from the same billionaire oligarchs and laundered money on both sides of the Atlantic. Daylight on any of the operation means that the party's over.

Maybe if it didn't take 3-4 years for these things to go to trial people would maintain focus.

You don't need access to a liar to prove they are liars or to prove the effects of their lies. The press needs to return to hammering the scum down and simply give them ample opportunity to have an interview to explain themselves.

The fact that it's not a media circus will probably help getting a conviction.

Ask anyone in that 30% one question: Of all the presidents and presidential candidates since the inception of the USSR, why were the Orange Turd and his campaign slugs the only ones who had anything to do with them? Not Roosevelt, not Truman, not Eisenhower, not Kennedy or Johnson or Nixon, not Carter or Reagan or Bush I or Clinton, not Bush II or Obama or any of their electoral opponents from Hoover through RMoney.

Only Trump.

Haven't found a single one of that 30% that can give an answer. Their approval is obvious.

He's in the US, that's probably the only reason. Russia has only been doing that in the EU. I don't think they would try to bring Polonium into the US.
