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.
Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement
Will Mitch retire?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.
Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.
McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
