There are lies, damn lies and politics. In our column “The DNC has been planning to play the Russia Card since April, 2016” we noted:
A leaked Democratic National Committee email shows that this strategy of blame it on Russia was planned and is now being executed with the help of the legacy media.
Here is the email stating, “[T]he pro-Russia stuff ties in pretty well to the idea that Trump is too friendly with Putin/weak on Russia”:
It seems Democrats have overplayed the Russian card and it has come back to bite them on their collectivist derrieres.
Here is a photo of Sergey Kislyak, Russian Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, sitting with Democrats during President Trump’s February speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress:
Once you use a certain politically motivated tactic, like meeting with any Russian official for any reason, people begin a Google search for stories and photos and found Democrats cozening up to the Russians. Well, citizens have discovered multiple cases in which Democrats are meeting with key Russians including Senator Chuck Schumer enjoying donuts with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Representative Nancy Pelosi dining with the Russian ambassador.
A photo published on the Politico website shows House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak in 2010 — a direct contradiction to her telling reporters at the website she had not met with the diplomat.
After tweeting on Friday morning that Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) should be investigated for meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2003, President Donald Trump tweeted that a second investigation into Pelosi’s past should be launched.
I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it.

“I hereby demand a second investigation, after Schumer, of Pelosi for her close ties to Russia, and lying about it,” Trump tweeted on Friday.
“Not with this Russian ambassador, no,” Pelosi told Politico’s Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer during a Playbook interview, when asked if she’d ever met with the Russian envoy.
“But a file photo from Pelosi’s 2010 meeting with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev shows Kislyak at the table across from Pelosi — then House Speaker — and Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-Md.),” Politico reported. “Medvedev had been in the country for a meeting with President Barack Obama a day earlier and stopped in on Capitol Hill to meet with congressional leaders as well.
President Trump tweeted:
But it gets worse. It appears that 30 Democrat members of Congress met with Russian operatives. Topic of discussion? The Iran nuclear deal.
Kerry Picket from The Daily Caller reports:
The Huffington Post reported in early August 2015, Senate Democratic staff invited three undecided Democrats on the Iran nuclear deal Democrats along with other members of their caucus to meet with the ambassadors of Russia, England, France, China and Germany in the capitol.
Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, according to HuffPo, organized the Iran nuclear deal briefings for his Democratic colleagues that included meeting the ambassadors.
The presentations were strong enough to convince the three undecideds to come around and overcome a Republican filibuster of the Iran deal.
“Thirty members, as a matter of fact, of this body met with the Russian Ambassador and ambassadors from other nations in 2015 for a sales pitch on President Obama’s deal with Iran. Many of them — including the senior senator from Missouri [Claire McCaskill] — were open supporters at that time of candidates in the presidential race,” he [Senator David Perdue (R-GA)] said.
There are lies, damn lies and then there is fakestream news.
Fakestream news is the new propaganda spewed by the media for a political end, in this case to discredit the Trump administration.
So much for working together and giving Mr. Trump a chance to govern.
