This week’s bombshell indictments by Special Counsel Robert Mueller of specific members of the Russian Military Intelligence should be cause for Congressional Democrats to get off the TrumpRussia sidelines and begin asking a series of very important questions beginning with this–What did Russian military intelligence do with the information they stole from 500,000 U.S. voters? It is foolhardy to suggest that Russians amassed such a large quantity of data on U.S. voters only to turn around and sit on it. Every reasonable person would conclude that they put such data to use against Dems in the 2016 elections. Dems therefore have every right to question who in the GOP sought or was the beneficiary of such illegally acquired info beginning with the head honcho himself House Speaker Paul Ryan.
There have been media reports that a Ryan-allied political action commitee(PAC) used this illegally obtained information to attack Dems in the 2016 election cycle.
Do not forget Paul Ryan’s Super PAC linked to Russian hacking during election….https://t.co/7mAIniYWed

Given Mueller’s indictment, this is the perfect time for Dems to confront Speaker Ryan using the popular watergate question, “What did Speaker Ryan know about the Russian hack and when did he know it?” This is a particularly important question when considering the fact that a lot of Americans find Speaker Ryan’s strange silence even in the face of obvious TrumpRussia obstruction by his House GOP colleagues quite suspect. Is he afraid because he is implicated(complicit) or that he knows a lot of his GOP colleagues are?
Beyond House Speaker Ryan, the possibilities as to what Russian military intelligence could have accomplished with such a treasure trove of voter data should be very concerning to Dems. Remember Trump “beat” Hillary Clinton by a combined total of only 88,000 votes in the key swing states of Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. Yours Truly has always maintained, even when the mainstream media considered it a radical left-wing conspiracy theory, that Clinton won these three crucial swing states but more importantly, that the pre-election polls that showed her leading were never wrong

Dems need to ask serious questions about MI, WI & PA given this bombshell revelation that Russian military intel stole information of 500,000 voters. Specifically, were Trump’s poll-defying “wins” in MI, WI & PA made up of real voters or fictitious #GucciferVoters? Remember folks we are talking here about the highly sophisticated and well financed Russian military intelligence not the imaginary “400 pound guy in the basement” Trump referred to when confronted about Russian election meddling.
As for the unnamed GOP politician referenced in the Mueller indictments as having sought Dem dirt from the Russians and later used it in his campaign, Dems must demand his immediate resignation if he is currently a member of Congress. The highly informed grassroots Dems who follow Yours Truly on twitter strongly suggest it is Rep Matt Gaetz representing Florida’s 1st congressional district. If he turns out to be the one, Dems must demand his immediate resignation.
