    As Trump Struggles With Helsinki’s Fallout, Congress Faces a New Charge: Complicity

    WASHINGTON — In the nearly two years since Russia attacked the American democratic process, congressional Republicans have played conflicting roles in the drama: Some have pressed to impose sanctions on Russia and quietly pursue investigations, but they have been outshouted by Republicans who have obfuscated and undercut efforts to uncover the Kremlin’s plot.

    And when the House Intelligence Committee closed its Russia investigation, declaring no evidence of collusion, it raised doubts about the intelligence agencies’ conclusion that Mr. Trump had wanted Mr. Putin to win, before backtracking. (In Helsinki last week, Mr. Putin confirmed that he had indeed wanted Mr. Trump to win. “Yes, I did. Yes, I did,” he told reporters.)

    “No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant,” Mr. McCain said in the wake of the summit meeting.

    But a day later, at a regular forum hosted by the Freedom Caucus, lawmakers close to Mr. Trump declared the meeting a success, pinning blame not on his performance but on the reporters who had the audacity to ask the two leaders about the attacks.

    --------------------------

    If Russia can have something on Trump, isn't it possible they have something on other Republicans? There has to be a reason for this sudden embrace of Russia.

    As a Republican,I say no. The only elected voices to say something against have no power,or sadly in the case of Sen.McCain,are soon to depart.

    WTF, so much for relying on anything resembling facts.

    If you need to quote John McCain, you really don't have a case.

    Nothing here.

    That article is a joke. Trying to distract from his own eventual downfall by all his articles that have been proven to be fallacy. Keeps digging deeper. The true sign of insanity.

    There is a reason Trump is so submissive to Putin. What is it?

    That's it! Doncha see. The entire republican party and every republican has been taken over by Russians. Whenever a republican wins an election, it's really RUSSIANS that won. The only way to assure that the election is secure is when democrats are elected, specifically, democrat socialists. Everyone else is a Russian.

    Hard facts.

    191 criminal charges
    35 indictments
    5 guilty pleas
    2 in jail.

    You can't get facts any harder than those, right? Well? Right?
