Jill Stein Prepares to "Wage War on Overblown Russia Investigation"

Jill Stein is reportedly the newest target in the Senate investigation into campaign collusion with Russia

Jill Stein is the gift that keeps on giving. Back in 2016, she fleeced gullible liberals for millions of dollars in her sham recount effort to prove Russia hacked the election. After the recounts showed no Russian interference with voting machines, Stein slithered into the night with her new fundraising apparatus. It's a fiasco that has the potential to hurt democrats for years. Now, in a weird twist of fate, Jill Stein's campaign appears to be a target in the Senate investigation of Russian interference in the election. It doesn't get any better than this. According to buzzfeed,

Dennis Trainor Jr, who served as the campaign’s communications director and acting manager during that time, told BuzzFeed News that he was informed of the committee’s request because during his time on the campaign, his personal cell phone was “a primary point of contact” for those looking to reach Stein or the campaign. That included producers from RT News, the Russian state-funded media company that booked Stein for several appearances, Trainor said.

Trainor also said that Stein will likely release any requested documents to the public “in an effort to show complete transparency and kind of wage her own war against ... what I imagine she thinks is an overblown investigation into collusion.” Imagine for a moment if Donald Trump said he would "wage war" against the Russia investigation. I suspect the world would explode. Luckily for Stein, she is a special kind of pants-on-head-crazy, so nobody really cares when she says or does something stupid.

It's worth noting that Mark Warner, the vice-chair of the committee responsible for the investigation, would not confirm that Stein is now a target. He did have this to say, however.

"I will point out that Ms. Stein was at that somewhat infamous dinner with Gen. Flynn and Vladimir Putin, and also has been a long term defender of Mr. Assange and Wikileaks which clearly was involved in dumping some disparaging information."

It remains to be seen what this investigation will turn up, but it has gotten quite interested. I suspect it has made liberals far more uncomfortable than they expected. At this point, it's just a waiting game to see what happens. Someone pass the popcorn.

"Imagine for a moment if Donald Trump said he would 'wage war' against the Russia investigation"? He and his surrogates have been doing nothing BUT that for the past eight months. It doesn't require any "imagination". Which simply serves to underscore the tiresome, reflexive hypocrisy of corrupt, partisan tribalism. Stein hailed the Russiagate investigation until she came within its crosshairs, and now she sounds just like Trump about it. Trump loved Wikileaks-style email hauls as long as they were Hillary Clinton's, but screamed bloody murder when Bob Mueller perfectly legally obtained those of his transition team. Whether something is good or bad is not a function of who takes it in the shorts, but is good or bad objectively on its own merits. If the Russia collusion probe is sauce for the Trump gander, it's sauce for Stein's goose, and vice versa.

Stein was all for the Russiagate investigation until she came within its crosshairs. Trump loved Wikileaks-style email hauls as long as they were Hillary Clinton's, but screamed bloody murder when Bob Mueller legally obtained those of his transition team. Things are not good or bad based upon who the target is, but are good or bad objectively in their own right. If investigation Russia collusion is sauce for the Trump gander, it's sauce for Stein's goose, and vice versa.

If anything, Stein should be investigated for campaign finance violations, since she tried to raise those funds for an event that was after the fact in the 2016 election, and was a single digit candidate in a handful of states. The money she raised the funds for wouldn't have changed anything in her campaign, but could have for Hillary. Why would she raise money for Hillary when she was representing a different political party? Rhetorical question.

The investigation is beginning to look like a sordid ploy by a bunch of has beens attempting to remain in the Washington spotlight. Or it's a resume, retirement padding ploy. So far, we have screeching Democrats and no evidence of any event.

Much of "this", a united effort, is to put a female in the White House.
