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.

Prominent GOP Attorney Says Jim Jordan Accuser Admitted He Was ‘Hoping’ to Get Money
A prominent GOP attorney wrote a long defense of Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) on her personal Facebook page yesterday, in which she claimed that one of Jordan’s accusers has admitted to making his accusations on false pretenses.
Cleta Mitchell wrote the following:
“My friend Rep Jim Jordan is under attack by some very disreputable sources. To suggest that Rep Jordan would turn a blind eye to any injustice, wrongdoing, immoral or illegal act is absolutely laughable. Anyone who has known and worked with Jim Jordan, as I have, for nearly a decade knows that Rep Jordan never shies from a fight and that he leads the charge whenever there is a hint of something wrong – even to his own political detriment where others prefer that he remain silent, as they do. He never does.
The question I ask is why are these spurious allegations from disreputable sources being fomented against him now? Who is really behind this? It appears to me to be a concerted effort to smear one of the most honorable gentlemen ever to have served in the US House of Representatives. That is what NBC and other news outlets should be investigating…who is behind this? Can it be sources close to those in the Mueller investigation and the Department of Justice who are uncomfortable with Rep Jordan’s relentless pursuit of the truth behind what they have been doing for the past two years? That is much more likely than that these bizarre accusations are based in any facts whatsoever. We know Jim Jordan. We are only now learning about his accusers and there is something smelly about this entire episode. And yesterday, one of Jordan’s accusers admitted that they were “hoping” to get money … that’s a federal crime. Will the FBI arrest them?”
Mitchell did not specify which accuser was hoping to use the scandal for financial gain, but she is a GOP legal insider.
She confirmed her statement for Big League Politics but did not provide further details at this time.
