WASHINGTON — Democratic National Committee (DNC) deputy chairman Congressman Keith Ellison said Wednesday that members of the Trump administration met with “Russian spies and stuff,” without providing any evidence to support his claim.
Ellison was riffing on the livestream “Democrats Live,” hosted by the DNC, with Michigan Congressman Dan Kildee. The two lawmakers were going back and forth with insults for Republicans and Trump supporters toward the end of the interminable 47-minute broadcast.
Ellison specifically smeared former national security adviser General Flynn, current White House adviser Stephen Miller, and recently departed White House employee Sebastian Gorkey. Miller has never even been accused of having had any contact with the Russians.
“If you believe that, uh, what, Flynn, Miller, Gorkey, all these people who have been in meetings with, you know, Russian spies and stuff and ambassadors don’t have to come to Congress and explain exactly what they said, when they said it, and why they didn’t disclose it, maybe you’re on the other side,” Ellison said (44:50 Mark In This Video).
“Yeah,” Kildee agreed.
“If you believe that rich people don’t have enough money but that poor people have too much money, maybe you’re on the other side,” Ellison said.
Democratic and neocon Republican lawmakers have been citing the dormant Twitter account for Guccifer 2.0 as a suspected Russian agent who allegedly carried out a hack on DNC servers before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia in 2016. Guccifer 2.0 took credit for hacking the DNC. But as Big League Politics reported, an expert ex-hacker said that Guccifer 2.0 planted fake Russian fingerprints on his/her account and that it would have been technically impossible for him/her to have carried out any kind of hack on the DNC as he/she described it.
Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”
Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.
“I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”
Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.
The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.
Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.
Did Senate Democrat leader Schumer just threaten two conservative justices? Where is the media?

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.
Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
