Rand Paul Wants to Lift Sanctions on the Nation Going for Two Elections Stolen in a Row


Now we have to worry about what’s going on with Rand Paul.

Just a few days ago, we speculated that the Russians had something on Lindsey Graham, given that the Russians had hacked into the RNC server at the same point they hacked into the DNC one. Lindsey Graham has gone from a guy who had been a Russian hawk, someone who called for a full and fair investigation, to a person now stating that the Mueller investigation needs to end as soon as possible. Well, now we have Rand Paul journeying to Russia over the Fourth of July with other Senators, and now wanting to lift sanctions on Russian legislators so that they can come hang out with him in the United States. From CNN:

The Kentucky senator, who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, invited the Russian lawmakers to the US capital during a trip to Moscow in early August. He told Fox News on Thursday that members of both houses of the Russian Federal Assembly have “agreed to come to Washington in the fall for further meetings.” An aide told CNN that it would be the first time in three years that members of the upper chamber of the Russian assembly would attend official meetings in Washington.
Well, yes, there’s so much for us to discuss. After all, we have all those common enemies in NATO and Canada and …
“The downside is the chairman of each of the committees is banned from coming to the United States because of sanctions,” Paul said on Fox News. “So one of the things I’m going to ask the President — I’m going to talk to the President this weekend — is I’m going to say, ‘why don’t we take people off the list who are in the legislature?'”
Yes, you are going to do that first, and in response, someone is going to say something to the effect about how much easier it would be to do away with the sanctions all together. Because now we really have momentum going. It used to be the Republican Senators agreed unanimously that the sanctions needed to be taken out of Trump’s hands. Now we have Russian Senators taking trips to Moscow over Fourth of July (perhaps more opportunities to buy Senators? More opportunities to get blackmail-type of stuff? Don’t laugh, listen to what Paul has to say about meddling in elections, and how he can hardly blame the Russians at all. Hey, if you’re not cheating, you’re not trying, right, Rand? You’re not one of those who has what you call “Trump Derangement syndrome, are you?
“Any country that can spy does, and any country that can meddle in foreign elections does,” Paul said on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer” last month. Paul continued, “All countries are doing this, but we’ve elevated this to a higher degree, and we’ve made this all about the sour grapes of Hillary Clinton losing the election, and it’s all about partisan politics now. This is truly the Trump derangement syndrome that motivates all of this.”
And any country that catches them, lets them get away with it, and acts like it’s not a big deal, is one led by politicians who are compromised by that nation – people like Rand Paul, because no red-blooded American patriot is going to say it is just fine snookums, if you meddle in the lil’ American presidential election. 
Rand Paul, 30 pieces of silver, rubles, has been had. Do we need any more evidence? Are there any Republicans left we know to not be on the Russian pay roll? John McCain, Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, that’s about it. God it’s just so awful.

Puppy Update: He came home at noon today, and spent some time inside the laundry room (only room granny will let a dog inside). He decided he liked being outside better. He’s feeling ok, his paw is still swollen, and he still limps a little, but he is very glad to be home. I am not at all sure he knows what bit him, he might’ve been running fast at the time (the guy can fly) and just a nip as he’s running and he’d never see. He’s not acting skittish.
