Fake News! It was Ukrainian hackers, fueled by free pizza delivery from Comet Pizza Kyiv.

Yes and water is wet, what’s the point? Of course the fact that a committee in Moscow Mitch’s Senate concluded this should be extremely significant, but that will be downplayed or ignored outright. And if it does get any press the Mango Menace will tweet it to death under “fake news” and that’ll be that.

though he’s a supporter, this is Burr’s last term, so a tweetstorm wouldn’t effect him.

Yeah well I suppose this is good, but about 3 years behind the narrative. Will Burr now tell Trump, Guiliani, Barr etc. to cut their shit out?

OT, but they think they’ve already succeeded with Biden, so now this is the top story swirling around over there in the cesspool…

Senate Intel Concludes Russia Intervened In 2016 To Boost Trump

Well, that’s one opinion. Another is that Hillary colluded with Ukraine to lose the election. But the most likely one is that America has fallen through a worm-hole in the space-time continuum into a parallel universe where orange-tinted aliens control all thought processes. Anyway, that’s the one my money’s on. It explains so much more than the others.

The Senators are trying to show, when it doesn’t matter, that they have some trace of integrity left. But having stumbled upon the truth, they picked themselves up and went on as if nothing had happened.

Wait a minute - SENATE Intel??? Someone under #DitchMoscowMitch’s tutelage and leadership says Russia really did it???

Oh, man, that’s significant and much appreciated!!!

When has that ever mattered? Attacking her for “lying” about being fired for being pregnant will resonate with white male fright about women and browns taking their jobs. Moreover, it will jibe with accusation of her having “lied” about her native American heritage to expand her employment opportunities to take white men’s jobs.

As much as I love her, we’re about to find out what happens when the activist left gets what it wants during the primaries.

I think they probably have the white male demographic wrapped up, but this line of attack probably won’t win them back any support with women.

Yes. As Chair, Burr has always tried to be serious.

And this is the fundamental problem with the GOP - the minions are that stupid that they forget their ancestors went to war against the Soviet bloc. These guys should be ashamed, but they’re not smart enough to understand what they’re saying, so pity is probably more warranted.

Nevertheless, they vote and that’s what the Dems are up against.
