Longtime Democratic pundit James Carville chalked up Bernie Sanders’ resounding Nevada caucus victory to Russian interference on Saturday, claiming that Vladimir Putin was the ‘big winner’ of the caucus.

Carville is known for something of a running feud with Sanders. The Vermont socialist called the Democratic political consultant a “hack” earlier this month after Carville claimed he would be hopeless in a general election against Donald Trump.
It’s probably not too surprising that a figure closely linked to Bill and Hillary Clinton(Carville consulted Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 political campaign) isn’t a fan of Sanders. But his claim that Vladimir Putin is celebrating as Sanders stakes out a clear path to the Democratic nomination is nothing more than a cynical ploy.
Elements of the so-called intelligence community have made unsubstantiated claims that Russia is waging internet influence operations to boost the campaign of Sanders. The Democratic frontrunner pushed back against the Deep State-linked reports, which surfaced a day before the Nevada caucus.
Years after Robert Mueller’s seemingly endless probe into alleged grand Russian conspiracies to interfere in Americans failed to result in any major indictments or arrests, cable media entities remain wholly addicted to narratives alleging widespread social media influence campaigns waged by the Russian government.
Democrats are pulling of page out of a book they’ve used before in leveling Russian interference accusations against Sanders, and it increasingly appears as if the same set of vague and unsourced accusations are going to be trotted out against any political populist who threatens the interests of established interests within the Republican and Democratic parties.
Leftist Group Pickets Outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Home Demanding GOP Accept Electoral College Certification
A group of left-wing militants protested outside of Senator Josh Hawley’s Virginia home on Monday night, threatening to harass Republicans for declining to sign off on contested electoral college slates. The professional progressive activists, affiliated with Shutdown DC, demanded that Hawley relent on a plan to challenge ratification of the electoral college.

Shutdown DC has become known for aggressive and personalized harassment protest tactics, with members of the organization “protesting” outside of Tucker Carlson’s house and ringing his doorbell in 2018. The small crowd of protestors spoke of appearing on the streets of DC on Tuesday, when thousands of Donald Trump supporters will protest at the capitol demanding that Republican Senators and Congressmen delay the certification of electors from contested states.
One man in an orange hat threatened to protest outside of Hawley’s house every day.
“He should be ready for us to come back and visit him if he doesn’t abandon his dangerous, reckless, self-serving, racist attack on our democracy!”
The ShutDownDC protestors warned Hawley of their harassment tactics in a chant.
“We’ll be back! We’ll be back! We’ll be back!”
Local police arrived on the scene within minutes of the protestor’s arrival at the private residence. The mob was allowed to go through with their stunt, yelling into megaphones late into the night in the suburban neighborhood. They loitered on the sidewalk for about an hour before leaving.
The group littered at the scene, leaving placards with progressive mantras on the ground outside of Hawley’s house as they left. They weren’t cited.
Belligerent progressives are likely to continue the use of aggressive harassment tactics even after Donald Trump’s presidency, with Biden all but certain to be inaugurated as President later this month.
