Rep. Connolly stated on MSNBC:
I used to be additionally struck together with his description of Trump. I don’t imply this facetiously, however frankly, these phrases may have come out of a number of mouths of Republican enablers within the Republican congress.
Gifted man, didn’t come from Washington, shook issues up, you may not like him, however he — properly, this was a person who didn’t know something about U.S. Authorities and didn’t care, who violated democratic norms, who incited an rebellion, who as we’re now studying has violated the rights of journalists and members of congress in in search of his Division of Justice within the worst of the Nixonian custom, in search of e-mails and phone logs to principally intimidate and get grime on individuals he would then attempt to suppress. No surprise Vladimir Putin likes him.
The truth that a member of Congress may so simply match up Putin’s description of Trump with Republican speaking factors about Trump is telling. The language is identical because the Russians used of their 2016 election interference marketing campaign. Republicans like Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), however making an attempt to inject Russian propaganda into the US political dialog for years.
The GOP is Putin’s get together, and their messaging match-up is a warning signal that Russia isn’t carried out meddling in US elections.
