Trump tries again to divide and conquer

President Donald Trump has always been an expert on using a false narrative to confuse people and allow himself to slip thru a dangerous situation unharmed. During his election campaign he used both the theory that the elections were rigged and the specter of vast voter fraud to give him cover him if he did not win the election.

He is back at it again with both himself and his Republican supporters pushing the debunked theory that Ukraine interfered in our elections to help Democrat Hillary Clinton win the presidential election. Not only has the Justice Department but also Robert Muller’s report spelled out that the Russian GRU military unit broke into the DNC computers, stole email’s and then disseminated it thru WikiLeaks. There is no substantiated evidence that Ukraine had any part in interfering in our 2016 elections. The Republicans are doing the Russians’ disinformation work for them at the impeachment inquiry. Each and everyone of the Republican congressmen have been briefed on Russian interference into our 2016 election and know the truth. Pushing the Ukraine Election interference narrative is not only lying but a disservice to our country. We expect a lot better than this from our elected leaders.
