Re: Maria Butina - NRA's Back Door to Russia

It must be pondered. Leah McElrath and Michael McFaul, @McFaul, former ambassador to Russia, have noted on Twitter there are Russian tweets and news articles about them giving them concern. A few days ago Bill Brower said Putin had accused him of stealing bunches o'rubles and laundering it through ...

Re: Maria Butina - NRA's Back Door to Russia

Also too, now that we know she was offering sex for....information(? not sure how to word that inoffensively), it makes one wonder about all those important republicans she managed to get photos with and why some republicans are willing to throw themselves in front of the runaway Trump Train.

Breitbart was gushing over her shoes lately too. I can't see how any woman can wear heels like this, but... whatever. These shoes have a pretty pattern, but they're not flattering in a close-up photo. https://thenypost.files.wordpress.com/2018/07/melania-louboutins-04.jpg?quality=90&strip=all&w=480...

Re: Trump's Trade Follicy

One of the biggest difficulties I see with Democrats is their diversity makes it difficult for them to get on the same page and drone on and one with a single message. It's a legitimate problem. Unfortunately, one of the best qualities of the party becomes one of it's biggest political weaknesses. ...

I'd bet there are hair extensions and spirit glue involved. It's bigger than it used to be, and there's no way he's grown more hair.

What Trump did isn't something he could "correct," even if he wanted to, which he doesn't. What say you, John Kelly?? Sarah Sanders??

I have a feeling Sarah Sanders is going to cancel tomorrow's press conference. Anyone want to take that bet?

Maria Butina - NRA's Back Door to Russia

Since this isn't Mueller's collar, Ms Butina needs her own thread. I don't know if the posts in the Mueller thread need to be moved or do we start from scratch?

Pushed Butina's name to the front since this is more Butina than NRA.
