Investigate all of Trump’s accomplices especially “Moscow” Mitch and “Leningrad” Lindsey

The coward and traitor Sen. “Leningrad” Lindsey Graham’s (R-SC) refusal to allow the now-majority Democratic Senate to schedule a hearing for President Joe Biden’s choice as new attorney general, Judge Merrick Garland, has slowed down investigations into the Jan. 6th Capitol riot that had lawmakers fleeing for their lives. How convenient!

Thanks to manipulation by “Moscow” Mitch McConnell refusing to agree to a power-sharing agreement in the Senate that only recently allowed the Democrats to take over the committees — including the prestigious Senate Judiciary Committee that would hold hearings on Merrick Garland.

It allowed traitorous trump “suck up” Graham to hold the reins of the committee as its chairman and of course he refused to schedule a hearing at the request of Democrats so now it will be delayed for weeks.

It’s possible that another month will pass before Merrick Garland takes over as attorney general, said Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), a member of the Judiciary panel and a close ally of Biden.”

“That possibly lengthy setback in installing leadership at the department is especially troubling to Democratic lawmakers and outside advocates—not only because they’re itching to get started on a new DOJ agenda, but because of the acute importance of its business at the moment. Among many other things, for example, the department is investigating and prosecuting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol,” the report states before adding, “… when the incoming Judiciary chairman, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), wanted to schedule a hearing for Garland, he first had to ask the permission of the outgoing chairman, Senator suck up Lindsey Graham (R-SC)—and of course Graham said no.” We believe its because he is one of many, who at Trump’s orders, tried to illegally overturn the election.

The Department of justice needs to get to work on the real threats to our country. The DOJ needs to effectively investigate and respond to rightwing domestic terrorism. To have our country’s chief legal officer sidelined for weeks is proof that this insurrection and sedition continues.

PUTIN PUPPET’S PARTING GIFT

Putin Gleeful After Trumpsters’ Violent Insurrection

Bemoaning Biden’s election, Russian state media talking heads consoled themselves with the thought that Trump fatally undermined democracy on his way out.

Trump just delivered the biggest present to the Kremlin imaginable by inciting a violent insurrection. Hundreds of Trump supporters descended upon the Capitol, launching a brazen attack that defiled the most precious symbol of U.S. democracy and attempting to overturn the outcome of an election in favor of their conspiracy-peddling idol.

Russian state media had played its own part in amplifying Donald Trump’s baseless claims of electoral fraud and gleefully predicting that post-election violence would inevitably follow. “There will be blood,” asserted Russian lawmakers and state media talking heads, a prospect they considered to be “excellent.” And indeed, there was blood. Vesti reporter Denis Davydov was embedded in the thick of it all, interviewing sweaty seditionists with bloody knuckles in between their attempts to storm Capitol Hill. “The United States never experienced anything like this,” Davydov noted. In his report for Vesti, U.S. correspondent Valentin Bogdanov asserted that the violence is not over: “While the Democrats gained control of Congress and the Senate, that doesn’t mean they can control the minds of the people. January 6, 2021 is forever written into the American political calendar. For some, it’s a dark date they will try to forget. For others, it’s a day to remember—or perhaps to repeat.”

Political scientist Yury Rogulyov told state media channel Rossiya-24: “The discontent will remain, the divisions will continue, but the big question is to which degree the Republicans will follow in Trump’s footsteps. If they do it, the crisis will be extended and America’s healing—if it’s even possible—will take a long time.”

Bemoaning Joe Biden’s election, Russian state media talking heads consoled themselves with the thought that Trump had burned the United States on his way out by discrediting America’s electoral system and democracy as a whole. The failed insurrection provided even more fuel for the fire. Instead of condemning an attempted coup—stoked by blatant disinformation—Russian officials joined Trump and his Republican collaborators in trashing the integrity of the U.S. elections. Addressing the foiled coup, Maria Zakharova, official spokeswoman of the Russian Foreign Ministry, blamed the “archaic” electoral system and the U.S. media—and not President Trump’s incendiary messaging.

Regardless of what happens to Trump, Russian propagandists find comfort in knowing that their favorite U.S. president’s divisive rhetoric and deliberate disinformation have inflicted lasting damage on America—and cast a dark shadow on democracy, which used to be an example for other countries. Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda argued: “The United States has long insisted that it is perhaps the only standard of democracy and order. But the inability of the American political system to transfer power peacefully and legally from one presidential team to another has torn the fragile veil from a failed example of democracy that has been carefully imposed on both Americans and the world.” Political scientist Igor Shatrov added: “The storefront is broken, shattered. It will be patched up, but the most valuable thing was stolen from the display: trust in American democratic institutions.”

It’s hard to imagine a bigger gift for Trump’s puppet master, Putin.

“There are two parties now, traitors and patriots.”

Ulysses Grant wrote in 1861: “There are two parties now, traitors and patriots.” We think that holds true today as well!

On CNN’s “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper led off his Sunday morning show by ripping into Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and the dozen Republican senators who are planning on trying to derail the certification of the 2020 presidential election for refusing to either appear or issue a statement explaining themselves. Calling the group of lawmakers, the “sedition caucus,” Tapper was unsparing in his criticism as his producer showed their pictures behind him.
“On Saturday, 11 Republican senators said they would vote against counting electoral votes in Congress next week calling for, quote, ‘an emergency ten-day audit of emergency returns’ despite there being no evidence of widespread voter fraud,” Tapper began. “The group is following the lead of Senator Josh Hawley who says he will formally object to Biden’s decisive win despite zero credible evidence that would justify such a move — zero.”

“Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska has slammed Hawley and others of the sedition caucus saying, ‘adults don’t point a loaded gun at the legitimate government,'”
“Mitt Romney said on Saturday “I could never have imagined seeing these things in the greatest democracy in the world.'”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Sunday encouraged his critics to “calm down” and “relax” about the plan to monkey wrench President-elect Joe Biden’s 2020 victory by officially objecting to Electoral College votes on January 6th in hopes of installing Trump as Dictator.

During an interview on Fox News Cruz was asked about the “pressure” he is getting from members of both parties who oppose his plan to object to Biden’s win and install Trump as President. She noted that some of colleagues have said that the Cruz plan borders on sedition.

Cruz whines that “multiple Democrats” had called for him to be “arrested and tried for the crimes of sedition and treason.” Well that’s exactly what should happen to all 12 senators of the sedition caucus and all 140 members of the House version of the sedition caucus.
