Rick Scott: Bill Nelson Is Making Up Russia Hacking OR He Broke Classified Info Laws
Florida Republican governor and U.S. Senate candidate Rick Scott slapped down his Democrat incumbent opponent Bill Nelson for his Russia hacking theories.
Scott, like many Trump supporters, is simply beyond exasperated with Democrats’ evidence-free talking points about supposed Russia collusion. The Russia case has already fallen apart with no proof, and now Robert Mueller is scrambling to peg Trump with obstruction of justice in a case where there is no justice.
Tampabay.com reports: “Either Bill Nelson knows of crucial information the federal government is withholding from Florida elections officials, or he is simply making things up,” Scott said in prepared remarks at a campaign event in Tampa. “Did Nelson illegally release some classified information? Or did he make this charge of Russian penetration up?” Scott’s remarks said.”
That’s a good statement, because it creates a criminal standard by which Democrats must be held to — many lawmakers including James Comey have already been found to have illegally leaked classified information.
James Comey’s friend, Columbia University professor Daniel Richman, leaked classified information that Comey gave him. During this leaking period, Richman was apartment-building neighbors with a partner at the law firm that strategized with Fusion GPS operative Natalia Veselnitskaya, the Russian plant who set up Don Jr. in Trump Tower.
“Yes, he is my neighbor,” Amy Wenzel, a partner at Cozen O’Connor, confirmed in a phone conversation with Big League Politics, confirming that they spoke. They live near each other in a Brooklyn high-rise.
Cozen O’Connor managing partner Howard Schweitzer is listed here on a DOJ form from an investigation into the breaking of lobbying laws by Russians trying to repeal the Magnitsky Act — which was just a front to get Russians in the room with Don Jr. It turns out that Natalia Veselnitskaya was actually operating out of the Cozen O’Connor offices.
