The Trump administration has been accused of attempting to pressure another foreign country into helping Trump's reelection prospects, according to a letter from the House Foreign Affairs Committee.

I will be looking to see if Ambassador Chapman is allowed to answer Rep Engel's request for an explanation.

Or whether Pres Trump will continue in his Obstruction of Justice stance.

Also, would not be surprised if AG Barr chimed in with a ~the Foreign Affairs Committee is overreaching~ type of comment....

"lower ethanol tariffs in order to support President Donald Trump's reelection efforts."

Would have been so easy just to say, to support American ethanol producers, who are already Trump supporters...

Of course. Because Russia won't help donnie this time. Trump is too stupid touting foreign election interference when he's letting the cat out the bag. This time he won't have Comey helping him either. Hahahaha... Fuuuuuuu_k Trump and the whore momma who should have swallowed him instead.

Naw, Russia is again trying all that they can to help Trump's prospects but one has to wonder whether even they've begun to see diminishing returns for their efforts. Trump so clownishly acts as Putin's pawn that no one in the world order wonders who's actually in charge, they all know.

And it's hard for any disinformation/cointel operation to clean the turd-pile of hundreds of thousands of deaths due to the complete screw-up of a pandemic response far worse than any on the planet and significant degrees worse than any other industrialized nation. Russia doesn't own enough lipstick for the pig Trump has left them with. Putin is nothing but shrewd, and even he must see the writing on the wall all but for delegitimizing the entire election. That's the only viable card that I see left.

@tonyroma - That's a very dangerous card that shouldn't be viewed lightly. Yes, Russia may not be as enamored with Orange Agent as they once were, but they can still work toward destabilizing our country.

"Biden's DoJ is going to be so incredibly busy."

Hate to say it but typically Democratic Presidents don't prosecute anyone, don't get me wrong though, I'd love to see an AG appointed by Biden go after these --------. I just don't think they will.
