MAJORITY LEADER TO COLLEAGUES LAST JUNE: 'PUTIN IS PAYING TRUMP'

More fake news about Trump you say? You might not like Daily Kos but either this all happened or it didn't

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy made some startling remarks about Trump, who was already the presumptive Republican nominee:

“There’s two people I think Putin pays: Rohrabacher and Trump.”

That’s California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, by the way, a notorious Putin stooge. A spokesman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, who had tried to swear the attendees to secrecy, initially denied that McCarthy had said any such thing. Then, when the Post told him that they had a recording of the conversation, he immediately switched to claiming that it was all just a joke gone wrong. Nobody’s laughing.

Finally, the night wrapped up with two explosive stories about retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who was fired in disgrace from his job as Trump’s national security advisor after serving just 24 days. According to the New York Times, Flynn had indeed informed Trump’s transition team that he was “under federal investigation for secretly working as a paid lobbyist for Turkey during the campaign”

Before the conversation, McCarthy and Ryan had emerged from separate talks at the U.S. Capitol with Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman, who had described a Kremlin tactic of financing populist politicians to undercut Eastern European democratic institutions.

... Ryan, along with other Senate leaders, was warned by the CIA that Russia was helping the Trump campaign, a warning that Mitch McConnell squelched.

Holy Crap, Ryan backstabbing Trump, probably while quoting Ayn Rand as he nixed an amendment to defund a Corporate Subsidy.

Yep. It's funny, because it's true! ... Nervous laughter...
Turns out Rohrbacher is an unwitting idiot (definitely) and an unwitting agent (maybe). Also turns out that the FBI warned Rohrbacher that Russia was trying to recruit him years ago.
