Now Jill Stein is being accused of involvement with the Russians! I highly doubt she has anything to do with them but at this point I think everyone who didn't support Hillary is now a Russian agent. Am I a Russian agent? Maybe. Are you a Russian agent? Definitely! Watch out because the Democrats are going to expose you, YES YOU, for being a Russian spy sent here to manipulate the elections.

This is getting fucking ridiculous. Is this real or is congress in on a giant comedy skit?

Third party candidate Jill Stein was a surprising addition this week to investigators casting an increasingly wide net in the congressional probe into Russian interference in the election.

Stein’s name was included in a Senate Judiciary Committee letter requesting all communication between President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr. and a number of others, including Russian officials and other members of Trump’s presidential campaign.

Stein ran for president as the Green Party candidate in 2016. A Green Party spokesman called the inclusion of her name “vengeance against Dr. Stein for running as a third-party candidate for the White House.”

The Senate panel wants documents relating to a recently revealed meeting between Trump Jr. and a Russian attorney, among others. Former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and Trump's son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner were also at the meeting.

But investigators seem to be casting a wider net by asking Trump Jr. for “all communication to, from or copied to you relating to” a long list of individuals that include Stein.

Stein called the request “laughable” in a tweet this week.

“The whole thing is an obvious smear,” she wrote.

The notion I communicated with Trump Jr is laughable. This whole thing is an obvious smear designed to generate a fake news feeding frenzy.

“Smears against the Green Party for participating in elections are nothing new, but raising the smears to the level of McCarthyism is a recent wrinkle,” Scott McLarty, media director for the Green Party, told The Hill.

The only known connection between Stein and the investigation into Russian officials is a dinner she attended in 2015 where former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn and Russian President Vladimir Putin were both present. Stein has said her interaction was minimal.

Flynn resigned in February after misleading Vice President Pence regarding conversations he had with a top Russian diplomat during the presidential campaign. The dinner came out as part of those revelations.

The Senate panel is investigating both Russian attempts to influence the 2016 election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow. Flynn is part of that investigation.

The Senate Judiciary Committee and the office of its chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley’s (R-Iowa), did not respond to a request to clarify their inclusion of Stein in the request for communication from Trump Jr.

“We expect that you have already taken care to preserve relevant documents in light of investigations into Russian interference being conducted by Congress and federal law enforcement and counterintelligence agencies,” the leadership of the committee wrote in the letter dated July 19.

Well she did run against Hillary for the democratic nomination.

That is a crime, isn't it...

A Russian plot against the US? Why that's preposterous I tell you.

Vladimir Putin loves America. And he has nothing but our best interests at heart. /s

That was the table for seats of honor. Paid speakers were placed at that table and Putin went and said hi. Was Jill a paid speaker at this event?

At the head table of the RussiaToday celebration:

Vladimir Putin
Vladimir Putin's Deputy Chief of Staff
Vladimir Putin's Chief of Staff
Vladimir Putin's Spokesman

"Also at the head table were three western politicians. Willy Wimmer, a former member of the German Bundestag who is often critical of U.S. foreign policy; Cyril Svoboda, former deputy prime minister, minister of foreign affairs, and interior minister of the Czech Republic, and two-time U.S. Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein, the only American besides Flynn at the head table. Stein's 2016 campaign was heavily promoted by RT."

Nothing to see here folks. Vladimir Putin just came to say hi and bye.

And as for Russian espionage and a misinformation campaign against the US? Preposterous. Absolutely impossible.

Of all the countries in the world Russia would be the last to wage a counter-intelligence campaign against the US!

Look, if you had dinner with Putin and Flynn chances are Congress is going to want to ask you at least one or two questions. Stein hasn't been accused of anything. It was a pretty boiler plate request for any possible communications / documents from a long list of people. Not an accusation that said documents or communications existed nor an accusation of being a Russian agent.

Putting that aside, Stein was a darling of RT ( oddly enough ) during the election. She did speak at an RT panel, praised Putin and sided with Russia on Ukraine. Most likely she was simply just a useful idiot at the time.

Stein trying to pull a Trump here is probably just her usual attention whoring.

She claims she was not a paid speaker. Flynn was, however he failed to disclose that which is one of the many reasons he's in shit and they might want to ask Stein about it. If Stein was likewise paid and failed to disclose that would also put her in some shit.

I'm not in the least bit surprised to see Russians at a celebration of a state sponsored news organization. It's like seeing the British at a BBC celebration.

You never answered my question. How many of those people were paid speakers? Flynn was.

Other GOP candidates being targeted by the Russian campaign interference efforts may end up helping Trump. It potentially leaves them wiggle room with a narrative that the Russians were just testing the waters and the failures to disclose campaign members' meetings with Russians were because nothing came of them. It doesn't make the investigations go away, but ti does leave room for doubt in public perception.

Or, ya know, just do what Trump does and keep doubting his intel agencies ability to access a foreign threat and casting the whole thing as some deep state conspiracy against him. Cause that's sure to win the public, right?
