More Evidence of GOP Collusion With Russian Spies

It wasn’t just the Chumph colluding with the Russians. This collusion was offered as a package which was taken by over 40 Republican candidates.

This is why the GOP is trying so hard to quash the Chumph Treason trial.

GOP operative asked Russian hacker Guccifer 2.0 for help — and got 2.5 gigabytes of stolen documents: report

The Russian hacker who helped President Donald Trump win the 2016 election also allegedly collaborated with a Republican consultant in Florida.

A Wall Street Journal report published on Thursday revealed that Republican operative Aaron Nevins made a plea last year to Guccifer 2.0, the same hacker who is accused of helping Trump by revealing stolen Democratic National Committee emails.

According to the Journal:

Learning that hacker “Guccifer 2.0” had tapped into a Democratic committee that helps House candidates, Mr. Nevins wrote to the hacker to say: “Feel free to send any Florida based information.”

Ten days later, Mr. Nevins received 2.5 gigabytes of Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee documents, some of which he posted on a blog called HelloFLA.com that he ran using a pseudonym.

The report said that the hacker then sent Trump ally Roger Stone a link to the blog post.

During conversations with the Guccifer 2.0, Nevins observed that the documents were “probably worth millions of dollars.”

“Hmmm,” the hacker replied, “ok u owe me a million :)”

In an interview with the paper, Nevins defended his actions as standard political practice.

“I just threw an arrow in the dark,” Nevins explained, noting that when he analyzed the documents, he “realized it was a lot more than even Guccifer knew that he had.”

“If your interests align,” the operative concluded, “never shut any doors in politics.”

Rep. Jason Chaffetz announces that he will step down in June

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, announced Thursday that he will step down on June 30, leaving his seat in the House before the end of his term.

“[A]fter careful consideration and long discussion with my wife, Julie, we agree the time has come for us to move on from this part of our life. This week I sent a letter to Governor Herbert indicating my intention to resign from Congress effective June 30, 2017,” he wrote, in a letter to his constituents.

He continued, “[A]s I celebrated my 50th birthday in March, the reality of spending more than 1,500 nights away from my family over eight years hit me harder than it had before.” Chaffetz also told constituents, “We feel my time in congress has been well spent, but it now seems the right time to turn the page.” He said he’s never believed he was indispensable and added, “I know others can and should serve.”

In April, Chaffetz announced his decision not to run for re-election in 2018, surprising many and opening up speculations about a potential run in the Utah governor’s race.

He was first elected to represent Utah’s 3rd Congressional District in 2008 and won four separate re-election campaigns by wide margins.

The congressman currently serves as Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. His decision to leave early comes after his invitation for ousted FBI Director James Comey to testify before Congress Wednesday regarding his memos about his converstations with President Trump and investigations into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Comey has not yet confirmed if he will attend the hearing.

Chaffetz told CBS News this week that he wants to conduct the Comey hearing “as publicly as we possibly can.” On Tuesday, he said in a tweet that he is prepared to subpoena the memos.

And the Winner of BTx3’s Defensive Driving Award…

Ain’t if funny how Congress gets to keep Obamacare while screwing the American public?

I’d call this “Defensive Driving”. Certainly not a crime.

Woman Allegedly Tries to Run GOP Lawmaker Off Road Over Health Care Vote

Wendy Walsh, BTx3 Defensive Driver of the Year

Feelings are running high over the Obamacare repeal and replace vote. Republicans are getting confronted by angry voters at town halls, and some are even seeing that rage spill over to the streets. In Tennessee, one woman was so angry at a lawmaker’s vote in favor of the health care bill that she tried to run him off the road, according to police.

After Rep. David Kustoff visited the University of Tennessee at Martin on Monday, Wendi Wright started tailing his car. Wright was so aggressive while driving that at one point the lawmaker and those in the car with him were “in fear of being forced off” the road, the Weakley County Sheriff’s Department said. So they decided to change course and go to a friend’s house that was nearby. Wright got out of her car and confronted the lawmaker.

Wright reportedly started screaming, and hit the windows of Kustoff’s vehicle, even reaching inside at one point. She briefly blocked the car from leaving until she got out of there once cops were called. Authorities arrested her later when she wrote about the incident on Facebook. At first authorities tried to get her side of the story but she refused to cooperate. “That left us with no other choice but to issue an arrest warrant for her and take her into custody,” a sheriff’s department official said.

Wright was charged with felony reckless endangerment and freed on a $1,000 bond. She is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.

Supreme Court Rejects North Carolina Discriminatory Voting Law

0 for 4, it looks that NC Racist Republican led Legislature is out of luck… again.

Up Next is the North Carolina Racist Republican Gerrymandering of districts.

Likely up by this fall is the legality of stripping Education Funding from Democrat and minority districts.

Supreme Court won’t review decision that found N.C. voting law discriminates against African Americans

The Supreme Court will not consider reinstating North Carolina’s 2013 voting law that a lower court ruled discriminated against African American voters, the justices said Monday.

A unanimous panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit had found in 2016 that North Carolina legislators had acted “with almost surgical precision” to blunt the influence of African American voters.

Although Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. took pains to note that the court’s decision did not reach the merits of the case, Democrats, civil rights groups and minority groups celebrated the demise of the law. It was one of numerous voting-rights changes passed by Republican-led legislatures in the wake of the Supreme Court’s 2013 decision striking down a key section of the Voting Rights Act that effectively removed federal oversight of states with a history of discrimination.

“This is a huge victory for voters and a massive blow to Republicans trying to restrict access to the ballot, especially in communities of color,” said Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez.

The appeals court did not allow the law to be used in the 2016 election, and voters replaced Republican governor Pat McCrory with Democrat Roy Cooper.

Cooper and the state’s new Democratic Attorney General Josh Stein told the Supreme Court they did not want to appeal the lower court’s decision that the law violated the Constitution and the Voting Rights Act.

“We need to be making it easier to vote, not harder — and the court found this law sought to discriminate against African-American voters with ‘surgical precision,’ ” Cooper said in a statement after the Supreme Court acted. “I will continue to work to protect the right of every legal, registered North Carolinian to participate in our democratic process.

As is its custom, the justices did not give a reason for declining to review the lower court’s decision. But in an accompanying statement, Roberts noted the particular circumstances of the appeal, in which the Republican legislative leadership attempted to continue the appeal and the Democratic governor and attorney general sought to abandon it.

“Given the blizzard of filings over who is and who is not authorized to seek review in this court under North Carolina law, it is important to recall our frequent admonition that ‘the denial of a writ of certiorari imports no expression of opinion upon the merits of the case,’” Roberts wrote.

Last summer Roberts and the court’s other conservatives — Justices Anthony M. Kennedy, Clarence Thomas and Samuel A. Alito Jr. — said they would have allowed the law to be used in the 2016 elections while the appeals continued.

But they were unable to find a necessary fifth vote from one of the court’s four liberals.

The battle against the law, considered one of the nation’s most far-reaching, consumed years of litigation by the Obama administration and a wide coalition of civil rights organizations.

“An ugly chapter in voter suppression is finally closing,” said Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project.

“Today we experience a victory for justice that is unimaginably important for African Americans, Latinos, all North Carolinians, and the nation” said Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II, president of the North Carolina NAACP, the lead organizational plaintiff in the case.

North Carolina legislative leaders did not immediately respond to a request for comment about what the next step may be.

The Supreme Court will soon rule on a case about whether the state’s congressional districts were racially gerrymandered, as a lower court found. And federal judges have also said the state must redraw state legislative districts for the same reason. That decision is being appealed.

In the voting rights case, a unanimous panel of the 4th Circuit on July 29 agreed with allegations from the Justice Department and civil rights groups that North Carolina’s bill selectively chose voter-ID requirements, reduced the number of early-voting days and changed registration procedures in ways meant to harm African Americans, who overwhelmingly vote for the Democratic Party.

“The new provisions target African Americans with almost surgical precision” and “impose cures for problems that did not exist,” Judge Diana Gribbon Motz wrote for the panel. “Thus the asserted justifications cannot and do not conceal the state’s true motivation.”

Money, Money, Money, Money – Donations Pour In To Progressive Groups After Chumphcare Debacle on Hill

The split between Progressives and Democrats is growing. Money is pouring into Progressive Groups to fight the Chumph and his Republican co-conspirators. But the DNC? Not so much. The throwdown in 2018 to destroy Republican majorities in the House and Senate with Progressives instead of old line Democrats is accelerating.

Hopefully, BLM has gotten a clue from this. There has never been a better time to replace some of those “Do Nothing”, Cabaret spending, black fools misrepresenting their communities on the Hill. And get some folks in with some real fire and ability to stand up for taking apart the New Jim Crow.

Progressive Activists Raise Record Amount To Defeat Obamacare-Repealing Republicans

And they’re using what could be a revolutionary technique.

Democratic activists, revamping fundraising to support congressional candidates in the Trump era, said Friday they received a flood of grassroots donations in the 24 hours after House Republicans passed legislation to repeal huge parts of Obamacare.

The progressive groups Daily Kos, ActBlue and Swing Left said they raised a total of more than $2 million from over 45,000 donors to help defeat Republicans who voted for the GOP legislation on Thursday. ActBlue, the main online fundraising hub for progressive politics and Democratic candidates, processed a total of $4.2 million ― a huge amount this far out from an election.

The progressive website Daily Kos raised more than $1 million from over 22,000 donors. That money will support Democrats challenging 24 of the most vulnerable Republicans who voted for the Trumpcare bill.

Swing Left, a national progressive group born in the wake of January’s Women’s March, worked with Pod Save America and the Crooked Media team to raise over $800,000 from almost 20,000 donors. Those funds will target 35 vulnerable Republicans who supported the bill. ActBlue raised over $430,000 from more than 6,000 donors to target every Republican who voted for the bill.

The spontaneous flood of donations is the latest sign of increased political engagement by Democrats, shocked by their defeat in the 2016 elections. Campaigns and local Democratic parties have seen a huge jump in volunteers. Democratic candidates in special elections scattered across the country have run well ahead of normal Democratic voting percentages.

But what’s interesting about the new fundraising effort is that none of the money will go to a named candidate ― yet. All of the money raised Thursday and Friday will be plowed into what are essentially escrow funds for each individual race. After the end of the respective Democratic primaries in each congressional district, the winning candidate will get access to the funds for general election efforts against their Republican opponent.

ActBlue has allowed users to create these kinds of funds since 2008, but progressive groups have not used them on such a wide scale until this year.

“I have never seen it used in the way it was used yesterday,” ActBlue Executive Director Erin Hill told HuffPost. She added: “The grassroots are really leading where the party is going right now.”

Large fundraising efforts for declared candidates normally are difficult enough ― and they’re much harder for an unnamed future candidate. That activists are willing to pour money into these accounts to fund a future candidate is a clear demonstration of their frustration and anger at Republicans and their legislative actions.

“Americans are horrified that congressional Republicans just voted to take away their health care, and that’s kindled real anger—anger that the Daily Kos community is channeling with record-breaking donations at unheard-of speed,” David Nir, political director at Daily Kos, said in a statement.

This fundraising model provides a way for activists to make decisions outside of the national Democratic Party.

Indeed, leading Democratic Party figures have been playing catch-up with their own voters since Donald Trump won the presidency. Activists have overwhelmed local Democratic Party offices looking for volunteer opportunities. And they have heavily criticized national party organs for failing to spend money, send help or direct volunteers to special elections.

The post-Trumpcare fundraising model provides a new way for activists to show their party the direction they want to go.
