    ‘Watching Sally Yates tap dance…. We were concerned as to why the Russians weren’t responding to our (setup) sanctions. This is cause for an investigation? AFTER a new president has been elected? And the newly elected president isn’t even informed? Yeah, she spent some time on that one.

    Grassley is waaaaay past his sale by date. He is an old doddering fool.

    Yates lying like a cheap rug. The Senate is full of corrupt tools and this hearing is a farce.

    Graham is giving the seditionists a chance to get their lies coordinated. Yates must be laughing at how this whole charade is being set up by Graham to fool the peons.

          There was more Twitter scuttle-butt being floated suggesting
          it was an ongoing coup attempt in Lebanon. Although this one
          seems to have come and gone faster than the 1st one.

    ICYMI: Mucarsel-Powell’s shady husband taking PPP loans
    CAMILLE GALLO | APRIL 23, 2020

    Debbie Mucarsel-Powell’s Ukrainian oligarch-connected husband is back in the news.

    The company he represents received $10 million in PPP loans despite employing over 10,000 people.

    Debbie claims she is against larger businesses taking PPP money.

    Will she demand her husband return taxpayer money?

    HUGE! Trump Campaign Fights Nevada Democrat Party’s Unconstitutional and Unethical Attacks on Election Integrity
    By Jim Hoft
    Published August 5, 2020

    Nevada Gov. Sisolak

    Ronna McDaniel, RNC Chairman: “Democrats changed the rules of the game at the last minute to try and rig this election. They overturned a bipartisan ballot harvesting ban to allow strangers to pick up a ballot for anyone, including the most vulnerable to COVID-19, and have thrown out many important safeguards. Nevadans saw the dangers of automatically mailing ballots during their June primary. The integrity of the election was at risk then, and it is even more so now. AB4 will destroy the confidence every voter deserves to have in our elections.”

    Now Sen Whitehead (RI-MOB) making excuses for Yates, and Lindsey (SC-RINO) agreeing Yates was not responsible for checking facts in FISA application, trying to undercut Hawley’s Q + A!!!

    Note: if Sally Yates brazenly lies before the Senate, Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz can refer criminal charges for lying to the Senate. If Ted Cruz wants to be re-elected he had better step up and do it.

    There is enough documentation released that would refute her assertions.
