Okay, did I just hear correctly? The Russians, in effect, like the GOP best?

As Jackie Speier just established on the record in the Russia Intel Hearing (CNN's label) - Russia is our adversary. Prefers to see or help the US be damaged - to their own advantage? And then, minutes earlier in the hearing, did Comey & Rogers and just confirm that Russia has a preference for the republi-CONS, over the Democrats?

Things that make you go HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...

3. I know how you feel!

INSANE.

And this would seem to be a foundational premise for everything that came before. Looks like the GOP got a whole bunch of ICK on themselves. GOP = Grand Old Putinites.

When they say "Country First," which country do they mean?

Who's yer daddy, GOP? Sleeping with the enemy, GOP? (And yes, during the hearing a few minutes ago, Jackie Speier made sure to put into the record to clarify that YES, Russia is our ADVERSARY. They're NOT a friend. They're an ADVERSARY.

Why wouldn't they prefer those who are more easily bought off and manipulated. I mean accepting bribes and acting and thinking as they are told, is deeply ingrained into a rethugs DNA.

10. The Russians like the GOP best because...

they have dirt on more republicans than Dems! You don't think they only hacked Dem computers, do you? Every republican that comes out and re-iterates support for the Orange One might as well be saying, "My hands are tied - the Russians have dirt on me!"

11. It makes sense when you compare the Pub platform with Russian interests

Pubs: pro-military spending which helps spur military spending in other countries, benefitting Russian arms exports

Pubs: anti renewable energy, helps Russia as they are dependent on fossil fuels

Pubs: anti-EU / UN. A fractured Europe benefits Russia

The list goes on.
