Eight GOP lawmakers spend America’s Independence Day in Moscow.
Senators Richard Shelby, Steve Daines, John Hoeven, Ron Johnson, John Kennedy, Jerry Moran, John Thune, and Rep. Kay Granger tell U.S. media that their trip is to be tough on Russia in regards to election meddling.
In Moscow, though, the lawmakers stress that they’re only there to “strive for a better relationship” with our enemy and not “accuse Russia of this or that or so forth.”
Russian media even pokes fun at the senators for behaving like lapdogs to Russia after promising to represent U.S. interests back home.
Two years later, in 2020, Sen. Ron Johnson makes headlines when intelligence reveals an investigation he’s heading may actually be a cover for foreign efforts to influence the election and damage Joe Biden’s campaign.
Donald Trump was not the first criminal elected to public office, and he won’t be the last. It’s up to US to hold them accountable.
