A good rule of thumb in the political world is to always assume that Democrats are guilty of doing whatever it is they accuse Republicans of doing – like claiming that former President Donald Trump is a Russian stooge.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, like the rest of his party, spent years accusing Trump of that very thing. It turns out he is the one on Moscow’s payroll.
“A single, ominous question now hangs over the White House: What could possibly cause President Trump to put the interests of Russia over those of the United States?” Schumer asked in 2018.
Daniel Greenfield, writing for Frontpage Magazine, asked: “Why is Schumer putting Russia’s interests ahead of those of the United States by blocking Nord Stream 2 sanctions on Putin’s pet pipeline into Europe?”
Greenfield continued: “Schumer, along with a number of other top Democrats, is a beneficiary of campaign contributions from top Democrat fundraiser Vincent Roberti whose lobbying firm was paid over $8.5 million by Nord Stream 2 which is owned by Putin’s state-run Gazprom energy monopoly.
“Roberti, a former Dem politician, has maxed out his donations to Schumer and to Rep. Eric Swalwell, who may have been cheating on Fang Fang with Vladimir, and threw in a generous $171,000 to the DCCC, as part of the over $545,000 donated to the Democrat political machine.”
This top Democrat donation bundler is reportedly lobbying on “issues related to the U.S. position toward the Nord Stream 2 pipeline, including potential financial sanctions affecting the project.”
“Schumer, who was accusing the GOP and Trump of being in bed with Putin, and demanding that they vote on sanctions, was suddenly refusing to hold a floor vote on Russia sanctions,” Greenfield added.
Schumer’s accusations boomeranged on him
“Millions of Americans will continue to wonder if the only possible explanation for this dangerous behavior is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump,” Schumer smeared Trump back then.
But now the question he must be forced to answer is this: What kind of damaging info does Putin have on Sen. Smear?
Back then, Trump – who was new to politics but is nonetheless very shrewd – suggested that “we should start an immediate investigation” into his New York nemesis’s potential ties to Russia, going on to paint Schumer as a “total hypocrite.” Seems the former president was onto something.
Three years ago, Greenfield reminds us, Schumer was yammering that delaying sanctions on Russia “is an extreme dereliction of duty by President Trump, who seems more intent on undermining the rule of law of this country than standing up to Putin.”
So if that was true then, why isn’t it true now? Of course, it is true now. The difference is… money.
Schumer wasn’t alone in this, by the way. The House’s top Democrat, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, also ranted about Trump (with zero proof): “With him, all roads lead to Putin. I don’t know what the Russians have on the president, politically, personally or financially,” she said.
Greenfield noted: “Roberti plowed $46,100 into Pelosi’s Victory Fund. He also appears to have maxed out his contributions to the House Majority Leader and gave $5,000 to her PAC to the Future. That’s not too shocking since Pelosi toasted Roberti and his wife at their wedding.”
Other Democrats are just as culpable, including Sen. Richard “Dick Da Nang” Blumenthal, the Vietnam War hoaxer from Connecticut. (Related: If your city is run by corrupt, controlling, terrorist-sympathizing democrats, abandon it ASAP.)
“Trump denial of Russian collusion rotten at core and doomed to unravel,” Blumenthal tweeted. “Expect more serious convictions and indictments early in 2018 as the Special Counsel climbs the ladder of criminal culpability.”
Those never came, but Roberti’s money to the Connecticut Democrat did. Ditto for other Democrats Greenfield outed.
But wait, as they say, there’s more.
Greenfield wrote: “But the real lobbying effort to stop the Nord Stream 2 sanctions is coming out of the Brandon White House with top associates of the notoriously corrupt politician pushing Senate Dems to let Putin have his pipeline. And that’s after Brandon shut down the Keystone XL pipeline for America. Brandon falsely claimed that waiving sanctions on Putin’s pipeline was in U.S. national interests.”
Roberti is a longtime Brandon pal who boasts of having advised him on his 2008 presidential bid and reportedly flew him out to his hometown during the campaign.
Our government is thoroughly corrupt and that corruption is most pronounced on the left.
