Democrats have another brewing scandal on their hands.
And once again, it involves Russia.
A top Democratic Senator was just caught red handed colluding with the Russians.
Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) is the ranking member of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
He’s one of the ringleaders who’s been fanning the flames of the fringe conspiracy theory that the Trump campaign colluded with Russia.
But – as usual – it turns out the only evidence of collusion involves the Democrats.
Warner was forced to admit he repeatedly texted with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch who promised him access to Christopher Steele – the ex-British Intelligence agent who put together the fake news Trump-Russia dossier.
Fox News reports:
“Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee who has been leading a congressional investigation into President Trump’s alleged ties to Russia, had extensive contact last year with a lobbyist for a Russian oligarch who was offering Warner access to former British spy and dossier author Christopher Steele, according to text messages obtained exclusively by Fox News.
“We have so much to discuss u need to be careful but we can help our country,” Warner texted the lobbyist, Adam Waldman, on March 22, 2017.
“I’m in,” Waldman, whose firm has ties to Hillary Clinton, texted back to Warner.
Steele famously put together the anti-Trump dossier of unverified information that was used by FBI and Justice Department officials in October 2016 to get a warrant to conduct surveillance of former Trump adviser Carter Page. Despite the efforts, Steele has not agreed to an interview with the committee…
…Waldman is best known for signing a $40,000 monthly retainer in 2009 and 2010 to lobby the U.S. government on behalf of controversial Russian billionaire Oleg V. Deripaska. Deripraska had his visa revoked by the State Department in 2006 because of charges, which he has denied, that he has organized crime ties.”
The lobbying firm’s ties to Clinton is another strand in her web of involvement.
The dossier was paid for by her campaign.
And her hatchet man – Sidney Blumenthal – fed information to Steele while he was putting it together.
Now a top Democrat involved in the investigation was forced to admit he was colluding with Russians who were represented by a lobbying firm with ties to Hillary.
In 18 months worth of investigations, the only evidence of collusion has implicated the Democrats.
It’s clear these probes are witch hunts and should be shut down immediately.
