1) I have no doubt now that, although much less deeply or extensively corrupted than the @GOP & particularly the @freedomcaucus, there is corruption tied into the heart of corporatists who call themselves @TheDemocrats ... @HouseDemocrats & @SpeakerPelosi would have otherwise...
2) ... have moved us forward as we did in Watergate days when we got rid of the corrupt Nixon regime. It is clear to me that what happened since then was not better government or better safeguards, but better, sneakier ways for all Dems and Repubs to "avoid the appearance" ...
3) ... while continuing to suck up that precious corporate and campaign finance money swelling their coffers. @realDonaldTrump and @senatemajldr and @LindseyGrahamSC are among many true villains here, but these corporatist Dems are not - CAN NOT BE - our saviors.

A longtime #NRA attorney reportedly expressed “concerns” about the NRA’s ties w/#Russia🇷🇺and possible involvement in ILLEGALLY funneling Russian money into the 2016 election to help Donald Trump‼️🤬1/

h/t @traciemac_Bmore…
Former NRA board member Cleta Mitchell (also did legal work for them) is one of MANY people whom House Intel Democrats want to interview. Democratic Senate Intel investigators also are interested in what she may know about relationships btwn the NRA and wealthy Russians.🧐 2/
Get this. In addition to being a gun lover (of course🙄), Mitchell is an *election law specialist* and veteran conservative operative.🤨

Meaning: she should know that it’s ILLEGAL for #Russians🇷🇺to donate ANY money that is spent on political campaigns‼️ 3/
