Not surprised.

(Daily Beast)Russian-American national Elena Branson was indicted this week for lobbying for pro-Kremlin policies while not registered as a foreign agent. She gave to one U.S. politician.

Tulsi Gabbard, a former Democratic congresswoman from Hawaii and 2020 presidential dark horse candidate, has long perplexed U.S. officials and observers with her seemingly inexplicable pro-Russian positions. And a new development this week is sure to reinforce the half-jokes that Gabbard is a “Russian asset”; as it turns out, her campaign took money from one.

That agent—dual Russian-American national Elena Branson, also known as Elena Chernykh—stands accused of illegally pushing pro-Russia policies in the United States for nearly a decade, at the direction of top Kremlin officials, without registering under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), according to a criminal complaint federal prosecutors filed this week in the Southern District of New York.

    Every time an unflattering story about Tulsi appears in the news, I think of Indy.

    Donna,
    Me too. I also think how the loony left and rightwing nuts often aren't that far apart politically.

    Both groups have an intense hatred for the Democratic Party and because of that are susceptible to the same disinformation.

    I'll make the point again. Quickly. I'm thinking about starting a thread.

    I see five factions among the GOPs. Among them there is ongoing, vigorous conversation. The GOP culture empowers...embraces...lively disagreement. Passionate difference of opinion. Edgy, but good hearted, disagreement.

    But, you Blue MAGAs! Let poor Tulsi even hint that your Flatulent Foolish Emperor ain't wearin any threads, go ahead. Condemn her to hell.

    It's what Good Germans do...

    ...and, you do it so organically.
