This is why the Republican leadership is so against the investigation on dirty Russian money.
They've been bought out by the KGB criminals as well.
How far they have fallen, the party of St. Reagan is reduced to sniveling KGB cucks.
Weak sniveling cowards who watch as America is violated by commie criminals.



Donald Trump and the political action committees for Mitch McConnell, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Lindsey Graham, John Kasich and John McCain accepted $7.35 million in contributions from a Ukrainian-born oligarch who is the business partner of two of Russian president Vladimir Putin's favorite oligarchs and a Russian government bank. During the 2015-2016 election season, Ukrainian-born billionaire Leonard "Len" Blavatnik contributed $6.35 million to leading Republican candidates and incumbent senators. Mitch McConnell was the top recipient of Blavatnik's donations, collecting $2.5 million for his GOP Senate Leadership Fund under the names of two of Blavatnik's holding companies, Access Industries and AI Altep Holdings, according to Federal Election Commission documents and OpenSecrets.org.




Deripaska controls RUSAL with a 48 percent majority stake through his holding company, EN+ Group, and the Russian government owns 4.35 percent stake of EN+ Group through its second-largest state owned bank, VTB. VTB was exposed in the Panama papers in 2016for facilitating the flow of billions of dollars to offshore companies linked to Vladimir Putin and is under sanctions by the U.S. government.

This is a Washington problem, not a left or right problem.

The WHOLE of DC establishment is corrupt and on the take from anyone with enough cash.

To say it is a left or right issue is silly.

Trump probably has $7 million in his couch cushions.

The last election saw the candidates spend a combined $2.7 billion.

So this guy holds citizenship in the USA and the UK. But he's proof of a connection to Russia?

Quick Google search shows he donated a million + to anti-Trump group. Whoops.

Another simple Google search shows this same guy you are all crying about donated to.... OBAMA. (and Romney)



Obama’s richest donor is Len Blavatnik, a Russian American industrialist worth $10.1 billion.


www.washingtonpost.com... erm=.2e4a61d7240b

So apparently Obama also had Russian connections. Better open up another never ending blank check special counsel to investigate Obama Russian ties! OMG!!!!!!1111

Exactly, I don't understand how anyone with an above average intelligence can't understand that neither party gives a F about the American People.

There is no Left vs Right game being played.

The only game being played is the [DNC+GOP+MSM+Lobbyist ] vs [the Average Americans including individual republicans and democrats]. The only thing is that the individual republicans and democrats supporting their party as political cheerleaders are to dumb to realize it and Fing up the country in meantime.

Just ban foreign investment for political campaigns entirely.

Then no Russian Businessmen, Saudi Princes, Ukrainian Nazis, Israeli arms dealers, Eurocrats or anyone else for that matter can have financial stake in US politicians.

Hmm. This fellow holds US Citizenship.

Is he to be condemned for simply being ethnically Russian?

Sounds like racism to me.
