In 2016, a conversation took place in the White House between top Republicans. Every conversation in the White House is recorded. The Washington Post got a hold of this one.
The conversation involves Kevin McCarthy, House Majority Leader, Paul Ryan and other notable conservative shills. If you read the transcription, there are a few moments when the hair on your neck stands up. They make some amazing comments about Russia.
House Speaker Paul Ryan says that Ukrainian prime minister Groysman “has this really interesting riff” about what Russia is doing in Ukraine: “Financing [Ukraine’s] populists, financing people in our governments to undo our governments.”
“It isn’t just about Ukraine,” Ryan says. And then,“Russia is trying to turn Ukraine against itself.”
Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the Republican conference chairman, comments “just how sophisticated the propaganda” is in Russia.
Naturally, since they are discussing Russian propaganda influencing an election they begin talking about our past presidential election.
Kevin McCarthy says,
“There are two people I think Putin pays: [Rep. Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump.” According to the transcript, “laughter” follows. McCarthy says, “Swear to God. . . .” More laughter. And then the group laughs again after the House Speaker, Paul Ryan, says “No leaks. . . . This is how we know we’re a real family here.” WashingtonPost article
Doesn’t that make you feel that your government is looking at for you? Paul Ryan says the government is a family because they won’t leak confidential information!
Imagine if a Democrat has a similar conversation, where they joked about Russia paying Hillary! Those tapes would be epic! We literally would not hear the end of it for decades. When a Republican does it though, the story doesn’t even last 48 hours!
According to the Republicans in the conversation, Russia turned Ukrainians against each other.
The violent rallies, the vicious online trolling operations, the use of hacked or “secret” material to discredit opponents – these are the tactics Russia used in Ukraine. WashingtonPost article
Weren’t those Russian tactics also used in our election? Should we just dismiss it as a crazy coincidence? It is no longer a question if Russia meddled in our election. As a result, our country is more divided than ever. In addition, Trump is dismantling every government agency so that the government is weak and “not so big”.
Last year, top Republican politicians had a recorded conversation, in which they acknowledge that Russian propaganda destroyed Ukraine. Russia also tried and succeeded to do that to America. The end game was to get you to hate Hillary Clinton. How many people reading this were played by Russia?
