Republican RINOs in Full Retreat in Wake of Flynn Resignation – Cowards

Tuesday, February 14, 2017 12:02
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Here we go again. Has the Republican party learned nothing from the past elections? We, on the right, are sick of these spineless, gutless RINOs who cave to everything except the will of the people. in our party. Forgive me for not spanking Flynn for trumped-up charges designed to destroy him and undermine the Trump administration. It’s a nothingburger.

Why was the FBI taping his phone? Who leaked the transcripts to the Washington Post. That is more egregious, more criminal than what they are accusing Flynn of.

And now, once again, the craven quislings on the right jump on the destroy band-wagon and cannibalize our own. The spineless, gutless Republicans are never so fierce or vicious against our real enemies as they are against us. No, true to form they go after …. us. When anyone on the left is accused of anything, no matter how egregious, they circle the wagons. When the anyone on the right is accused of anything, they circular firing squad. We are sick of it.  It’s why Trump got elected – and the RINO cowards still don’t get that?

Contact your Republican Congressman and tell tell them to man up and stop the witch-hunt. Who will be next? Why are the Republicans playing into the hadns of the enemy left? Long after the Cold War has ended, the American Left — after ignoring, denying and downplaying the Soviet threat, and ridiculing those who called attention to it — has fastened upon Russia as its all-purpose bogeyman.

Suddenly the left is cold warriors when during the real Cold War all they could do was disparage people who called attention to the Soviet threat. And the Republicans are falling for it?

This is all about the election. Nothing more, nothing less.  Give no quester, instead the republican knaves do the nasty work of the party of treason.

Stop playing their game and do what we elected you to do.

Republican senators call for Russia investigation, Flynn testimony

By Tom LoBianco, Phil Mattingly and Eugene Scott, CNN, February 14, 2017:

The Senate’s second-ranking Republican and other GOP senators are calling for an investigation into connections between President Donald Trump and Russia, and want former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to testify.

Sen. John Cornyn, who has called for an investigation into Trump’s tie to Russia before Flynn resigned, told reporters Tuesday that the Senate standing committees with oversight of intelligence need to investigate Flynn. Sen. Roy Blunt, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, also told KTRS radio he wanted to speak with Flynn.
Blunt told KTRS radio that an investigation “needs” to happen.
“I think everybody needs that investigation to happen,” he said. “And the Senate Intelligence Committee, again that I serve on, has been given the principle responsibility to look into this, and I think that we should look into it exhaustively so that at the end of this process, nobody wonders whether there was a stone left unturned, and shouldn’t reach conclusions before you have the information that you need to have to make those conclusions.”
Blunt said lawmakers need to talk to Flynn “very soon.”
“I would think that we should talk to Gen. Flynn very soon and that should answer a lot of questions. What did he know? What did he do? And is there any reason to believe that anybody knew that and didn’t take the kind of action they should have taken,” he asked.
Sen. Lindsey Graham also said he wants an investigation into Flynn’s conversations with a Russian ambassador about sanctions.
“I think Congress nees to be informed of what actually Gen. Flynn said to the Russian ambassador about lifting sanctions,” the South Carolina Republican told CNN’s Kate Bolduan on “At This Hour.”
“And I want to know, ‘Did General Flynn do this by himself or was he directed by somebody to do it?’”
Richard Burr, chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intel, told reporters he hasn’t made a decision yet on whether Flynn should testify. Other Republicans, have called for an investigation into the leaks over the information related to Flynn, instead of into the former National Security Adviser himself.
The top Democrat on the committee, Sen. Mark Warner, told CNN the American public “deserves” to know more about Michael Flynn’s resignation and the events leading up to it.
“I think it would be appropriate for Mr. Flynn now that he has resigned to testify. I think we need to know what he knows. Not just in terms of these conversations. Clearly he indicated by his own admission that he did not fully disclose information to the Vice President. I think there is more to come on this subject.”
Flynn resigned from his position as national security adviser Monday following reports that the Justice Department warned the Trump administration last month that he misled administration officials.
Flynn had conversations with the Russian ambassador to the United States before he was a government employee causing some to fear that he was potentially vulnerable to blackmail by the Russians.

    It is all hogwash. Firmly believe Flynn withheld info from Pence because he didn’t trust him. Afterall Pence is in with the Bushes. This is all calculated as the first step to take down Trump. On Super Bowl Sunday Pence spent the day with the Bushes and James Baker. Did they plot the take down of Flynn??? On a Glen C/Stew W video they said Bush took down Flynn because Flynn stopped the drugs in Afghanistan. We all know the drugs etc are what keeps the MIC, CIA, child trafficking, etc. going. So who knows. I don’t trust Pence and believe Trump should have kept Flynn. Trump needs to push Pence far away from his presence. But there is more to come in their setting up Trump for the fall. Trump needs to stop worrying about his image and start getting mean and forceful and demand that the republicans in Congress do the same in retaliation to the communist idiots on the left.
