Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) has blamed the Iowa caucus disaster that was either caused by either Democrat ineptitude or criminality on the evil Russians.
She made the mindbogglingly idiotic comment during Congressional hearings on Thursday. She told FBI Director Christopher Wray during an oversight hearing in the House Judiciary Committee that the Russians may be responsible for mischief in Iowa.
“I hope that the Iowa Democrats will ask for an FBI investigation on the app,” Jackson Lee told Wray. “I believe that Russia has been engaged in and interfering with a number of our elections dealing with the 2016 election.”
“Certainly, we are also concerned about potential Russian interference with our elections,” Wray responded. “That’s why I created the foreign influence task force, which is acutely focused on that topic among other nation states that are attempting to influence our elections.”
While Lee wants to scapegoat the Russians, all indicators show that it was veteran Democrat operatives who caused the nightmare in Iowa.
Big League Politics reported earlier this week that former Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook was responsible for running quality control for the Iowa caucus:
As the Iowa caucus results fail to come in promptly amidst “inconsistencies” in results according to Democratic officials in the state, exasperated voters wonder who to assign the blame toward for this surreal debacle.
The answer may be former Hillary Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook, who was used for quality control in the lead up to the Iowa caucus…
Mook may be trying to deflect blame that he has rightfully earned. Mook helped to found the Defending Democracy Project (D3P) and served on their team to protect election integrity with other establishment officials.
Eric Rosenbach, formerly the Chief of Staff to Secretary of Defense Ash Carter from 2015-2017 in the Obama administration, was tapped to lead the D3P project. Their press release noted that “Rosenbach recruited Robby Mook, Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign manager, and Matt Rhoades, Mitt Romney’s 2012 campaign manager, as Senior Fellows and co-leaders of the initiative.”
“Over the last two years, nearly every election on both sides of the Atlantic has been affected by foreign cyber attacks, including Hillary Clinton’s in 2016,” said Mook, blaming the Russian interference canard for the failure and incompetence of his own campaign.
The Des Moines Register noted that Mook’s firm was brought on board by “both parties in Iowa and their app and web development vendors” to “develop strategies and systems to protect results and deal with any misinformation.”
The tech firm that developed the app tasked with calculating the votes in Iowa, Shadow Inc., has deep ties to the Clinton campaign as well as anticipated caucus winner South Bend, IN Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Shadow is a tech project of ACRONYM. Free speech platform Gab noted that ACRONYM founder and CEO Tara McGowan is a huge Buttigieg supporter, as evidenced by her social media posts:
Welp, this Iowa voting app rabbit hole is getting crazy. There is a second company tied to this Shadow Inc company that reportedly developed the app.

In addition, Buttigieg’s campaign committee – Pete for America, Inc. – is listed as giving two massive payments of $21,250 to Shadow in July 2019. The leaders of Shadow all have extensive ties to the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign as well, according to their own social media profiles.
Shadow CEO Gerard Niemera lists himself as the former Director of Product for Hillary for America and Senior Product Manager during his 14 months of service to Clinton during her campaign. Shadow Product Manager Ahna Rao lists herself as a Clinton campaign worker for 19 months as Special Assistant to the Chief Technology Officer, and Shadow Chief Operating Officer James Hickey listed himself as Engineering Manager of Hillary for America for 18 months.
While Lee wants to blame the Russians, its clear that the Democrats are responsible for messing up the Iowa caucus.
He Found His Spine: Vulnerable Senator Cory Gardner Vows to Support Trump’s SCOTUS Nominee
Gardner found his backbone.
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has often been at odds with the Trump movement, being a favorite of the GOP establishment’s Senate Leadership Fund.
This is why his recent declaration that he will be supporting President Donald Trump’s choice to succeed the deceased Ruth Bader Ginsburg is so surprising. He made the announcement in a Twitter post on Monday.
“When a President exercises constitutional authority to nominate a judge for the Supreme Court vacancy, the Senate must decide how to best fulfill its constitutional duty of advice and consent,” Gardner said in his official statement.
“I have and will continue to support judicial nominees who will protect the Constitution, not legislate from the bench, and uphold the law. Should a qualified nominee who meets this criteria be put forward, I will vote to confirm,” he added.

The president’s pick for the Supreme Court will certainly fit Gardner’s criteria. Trump has announced that he will be appointing a woman to the bench.
One top contender – Amy Comey Barrett – recently made a trip to the White House, as Big League Politics has reported:
Judge Amy Coney Barrett visited the White House on Monday, as President Donald Trump zeroes in on selecting a nominee to fill the vacant seat on the US Supreme Court.
Barrett is reportedly a front-runner for the judicial nomination. She’s a generally conservative judge, with a staunch pro-life record. Her track record on immigration law issues is generally conservative.
Barrett currently serves as a circuit judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has advised President Trump that she is his preferred candidate for the seat on the court.
President Trump had confirmed that he plans to nominate a woman to fill the seat of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg, who died of complications from pancreatic cancer on Friday.
Democrats have launched a full-fledged fit urging President Trump to give them a break and decline to nominate a conservative justice, but they won’t be so lucky. Republican Senators and President Trump have rallied around the notion of appointing a justice before the November election, fulfilling their constitutional responsibilities.
Trump confirmed that he would be revealing the identity of his judicial nominee on Friday or Saturday, taking a few extra days to vet candidates. Florida Judge Barbara Lagoa is reportedly another candidate being considered for the nomination.
It’ll be inherently harder for incensed, power-thirsty Democrats to attack a female judicial candidate. Maybe they’ll alienate swing female voters through waging a scorched earth campaign to block the confirmation of Barrett, who is a mother of seven.
The Republicans have a great opportunity to score a major political victory and really stick it to the extreme Left with this expedited SCOTUS confirmation. The fact that a moderate like Gardner is on board is a great sign that the confirmation is likely to occur before November’s election.
