Russian woman accused of conspiracy to influence US politics

The US Justice Department charged Maria Butina in court Monday of carrying out a secret Russian effort to influence American politics. The Justice Department said in court documents that Butina worked to establish back channel lines with American politicians and tried to broker secret meetings between presidential candidate Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin during the 2016 campaign. The charges were disclosed shortly after the Trump-Putin face to face in Finland.

    Basically Vlad did what you expect them to do but the US just stood there and took it and is now in catchup mode.

    These crimes seem like stupid attacks by Russian clowns. The Democrats think that Americans are so stupid that they’s fall for Pink Panther antics said to sway an election. Well, I guess that Democrats are just that stupid because they voted for Hilary who actually had criminal connections to the Russians and who sold them the largest Canadian-based Uranium One mine and she and her cronies profited from their Russian connections. That is where the investigation must focus – the government -in-a-rogue-server and the funds coming into and going out of the Democratic Party and flowing to/from Clinton, Soros and Obama. It is a one-sided biased deep state fake investigation so it will not look for the truth but instead seek to destroy Trump and exonerate Clinton.

    I’ve learnt years ago blaming others is great for your ego, but it has no true value. If the politicians weren’t so out of touch with the American people they would realize Trump was voted on because of his core views. They don’t align with a politicians views. Term limits need to be put in place so new politicians perhaps will heed what the people want and not what special interest groups want.
