For John, BLUF: Not mentioned is that some Democrats could be knee deep in relationships with the Russians. Nothing to see here; just move along.
'We need to talk about what people think about when they wake up in the morning, and it’s not Russia,' said one strategist.The source is Politico and the author is Reporter David Siders, 5 August 2017.
Democrats are increasingly conflicted about how forcefully to press the issue of possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.And here is a comment from the ex-husbsnd of Ms Kimberly Guilfoyle:
Fearful of alienating voters who appear more concerned about the economy and health care, Democrats campaigning in districts across the country are de-emphasizing Russia in their rhetoric — and some are warning that a persistent focus on the Russia investigation could backfire.
California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, who’s running for governor, was even more direct in a recent appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The Russia investigation, he said, “doesn’t do anything for Democrats at all … It’s a loser.”Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
