Welcome to GOP Watch keeping an eye on Republicans for you.
The Republican Party is doing some very unpatriotic things they are willing to destroy our democracy using alterative facts and whataboutism to protect a comprised and corrupt Donald J. Trump, the Republican Party and Putin. We need to keep an eye on them before they destroy America, as we know it.
In leaked recording, key House Republican suggests GOP must keep House to protect Trump from Mueller - In a newly leaked audio recording, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, a California Republican, suggests that his party needs to retain control of the House of Representatives to protect President Donald Trump from special counsel Robert Mueller.
Republicans propose reallocating Coast Guard ship funding to Trump's border wall - Despite urgent warnings of the need to bolster the U.S. Coast Guard's ailing polar icebreaker fleet – now just a single functional 42-year-old vessel – some Republicans in Congress have proposed diverting $750 million planned for a new ship to President Donald Trump's long-promised border wall.
Trump allies zero in on top DOJ official with ties to firm that researched candidate - President Donald Trump's allies are mounting a fresh line of attack against special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian interference probe, zeroing in on ties between a senior Department of Justice official and the Washington research firm Democrats hired to investigate Trump. I guess they forgot Trump donated to the Democrats. Whom you donate to does not determine how you do your job.
Inside the Decade-Long Russian Campaign to Infiltrate the NRA and Help Elect Trump - Femme fatales, lavish Moscow parties and dark money – how Russia worked the National Rifle Association.
Senate Republicans Block $250 Million Election Security Measure - Amendment would have funded cybersecurity efforts and replaced outdated election equipment. Republicans are not protecting America from foreign interference in our elections.
It sure looks like there’s a GOP conspiracy to discredit the Russia probe - steady drip, drip of news makes it look as if there is a coordinated effort among Republicans and President Trump to undermine the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, and possibly to end it. Their attacks on officials leading the Russia investigation are escalating, right as the FBI raided documents from Trump's longtime personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, including documents about Trump's alleged affairs.
House conservatives just made their boldest move yet to undermine the Russia investigation - They claim the grounds for impeachment of Deputy Attorney General Rod J. Rosenstein is his alleged stonewalling of their document requests into investigations into Justice investigations of Hillary Clinton and President Trump. But that gets harder to believe when you look at this group’s penchant for using the “i-word” against their political opponents, their Republican colleagues' lack of support for impeaching Rosenstein and all the reasons to believe there is a GOP conspiracy to help Trump undermine the independent Russia investigation.
GOP lawmakers introduce articles of impeachment against Rosenstein - A group of conservative House lawmakers on Wednesday introduced articles of impeachment against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, the top Department of Justice (DOJ) official overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Trump is the one who should be impeached instead of impeaching Trump republicans are trying to stop the investigation by impeaching Rod Jay Rosenstein. History will not be kind to Trump and the republicans.
Exactly How Deep Are the Ties Between Russia And Trump's Republican Party? Top GOP officials know Russia used them to influence the 2016 election. They just don’t care.
The NRA Has Deep Ties to Accused Russian Spy Maria Butina - Here is the years’ worth of evidence.
Russia’s Plan to Buy Off the GOP Began Before the Rise of Trump - Republicans placed an anti-patriot in the Oval Office—just as the Russians bet they would.
The entire Republican Party is becoming a Russian asset - As part of a lengthy effort to infiltrate the National Rifle Association, an important Republican interest group, an alleged Russian spy began a romance with a Republican activist, met multiple Republican leaders and fostered a relationship between American gun advocates and Russians. Over the last few years, the Christian right, another key part of the GOP coalition, has grown increasingly close to Putin, whom they see as an ally in a global clash of civilizations between Christianity and Islam. In Congress, Republicans have undertaken an aggressive campaign to discredit and, many of them plainly hope, shut down the probe into the Russian attack on America. Though they mounted seven separate investigations of Benghazi, they are nearly united in their position that no further investigation into a hostile foreign power’s attempt to manipulate the American electoral system is necessary. Fox News, which functions as the propaganda arm of the Republican Party, has aired relentless attacks on the Russia investigation and calls for it to be shut down.
The Republican Party and Russia—Infiltrated or Invited? Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s indictment of 12 GRU (Russian military intelligence) officers and the Department of Justice’s arrest of Maria Butina both reveal that Russia’s influence campaign went well beyond just helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton. These indictments make clear that, even before Trump emerged as a viable candidate, the Russians were carrying out a broader influence campaign designed to infiltrate the Republican Party as a whole … which raises the question of whether Congressional Republicans have been abdicating oversight to protect others besides Trump and his team.
How Russia’s Mariia Butina Allegedly Used Sex to “Infiltrate” the Republican Party and NRA - Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation was not involved in Butina’s arrest, but it’s reportedly investigating whether Torshin funneled Russian money to the NRA for use in the 2016 campaign.
Republicans Bow to White House on Chinese Telecom Firm ZTE - “Despite bipartisan support to put American national security before jobs in China, the Republican leadership refused to take any real, substantive action on ZTE. Instead, they joined President Trump in bowing to Beijing,” said Senator Chris Van Hollen, a Maryland Democrat. “It’s weak and shameful.”
The Justice Department just charged a Russian national with trying to infiltrate the NRA - Maria Butina was accused of trying to influence the Republican Party at Russia’s behest.
Republicans are actively interfering in the Mueller probe to protect Trump - Republicans are, under cover of fake oversight, actively working to interfere in the investigation, on Trump’s behalf.
Republicans once ran on protecting Americans from Russia. Then Trump happened - The Republican Party of yesteryear was known for its abhorrence of the Soviet Union and all things related to communism. Now the U.S. has a president and Republican leadership unwilling to protect us from Russian meddling in our elections.
The Republican Party is a Cult Masquerading as a Political Party - Like a cult, the Republican Party expects loyalty to party above truth and loyalty to the country. Republicans defend Trump at the expense of our democracy, our judicial system, our intelligence agencies and our allies.
Trump and the GOP needs to stop the BS Donald J. Trump donated to both Democrats and Republicans - Trump and the GOP are trying to take away our first amendment rights and subvert justice.
Devin Nunes's laughable spin to protect Trump crashes and burns - One of the most comical — or perhaps deeply troubling — aspects of the massive effort by President Trump and his allies to create an alternate narrative to the Russia probe is that it continues unabated, even as the numerous conspiracy theories created to bolster it have, one after another, fallen like dominoes.
Republicans’ Russia Problems May Run Deeper Than Donald Trump - Do Republicans just have a Trump problem, or, is the alleged Russian involvement with the Trump Administration the tip of a much larger Putin problem for the Republican Party? Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the Republic, not the Republican Party. Is the GOP going to stand in defense of our Democracy, or purely preserve power?
