GOPe Hack Registers as Foreign Agent for Russian Government

Establishment consultant John Weaver had propagated Russian interference conspiracies for years.

In what can only be described as a tale of epic and shameless hypocrisy, former John Kasich and John McCain operative John Weaver has registered as a foreign agent for a Russian state-owned nuclear energy company.

Weaver will be paid $350,000 by Rosatom to lobby the Trump administration and Congress against implementing any new sanctions that would affect Russia’s nuclear energy industry. He’s registered with the Justice Department as a foreign agent of the country he’s claimed for years was behind a nefarious plot to insert Donald Trump as a puppet figure at the head of the United States government.

Weaver’s hypocrisy couldn’t be any more transparent and self-serving. The operative has tweeted over the years slamming what he supposedly perceived as a weak approach to U.S-Russia relations by the Trump administration.

The political consultant appears to directly contradict himself in several statements on the topic of Russia sanctions. He’ll have a tough case to make against nuclear energy sanctions, considering he’s advocated for even more Russia sanctions for years.

The old-guard consultant, who became known in Republican politics for his work in 2008 for John McCain’s failed presidential campaign, attempted to rationalize in a Twitter thread what many of his liberal followers viewed as a double-crossing from an early purveyor of the now-debunked Trump-Russia conspiracy theory.

It’s unclear why exactly the American subsidiary of the Russian state-owned company Rosatom chose to hire Weaver as their point man to push their preferred policies within the federal government.

It’s possible the company is seeking to utilize Weaver’s connections among reactionary liberals freshly skeptical of all things Russian to smooth over a policy that exempts Russian uranium exports to the United States from the already stringent regime of sanctions upon Russian companies and individuals.

The hack will take his $350,000 and likely continue to accuse anyone critical of establishment liberal Republicans of being an agent of Putin.

Dan Crenshaw White Knights for Liz Cheney After Republicans Blast Her Support for Trump’s Second Impeachment

Birds of a feather flock together.

Liz Cheney, daughter of Dick, was one of ten GOP House members to vote “yes” on President Donald Trump’s unprecedented second impeachment. Then when some were calling on Cheney to resign over her disgraceful vote, Dan Crenshaw, who voted against impeachment, quickly came to her defense and announced his “full support” for her.

“Let’s get some truth on the record: @Liz_Cheney has a hell of a lot more backbone than most, & is a principled leader with a fierce intellect,” Crenshaw tweeted Wednesday afternoon. “She will continue to be a much needed leader in the conference, with my full support.”

“We can disagree without tearing each other apart,” he added.

Crenshaw himself was then roundly criticized in the replies to his tweet.

Cheney’s vote comes as no surprise. Big League Politics reported on her recent statement in support of Trump’s second impeachment, part of which read: “There has never been a greater betrayal by a President of the United States of his office and his oath to the Constitution. I will vote to impeach the President.” For this CNN laughably called her the “conscience of Republicans.”

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together.” Dan Crenshaw and Liz Cheney most certainly do not represent the future of the GOP.
