The Republican leadership knew about all this !
And they didn’t care.
And what about America’s once proud 4th estate? This is important shit, but instead emails by a big weiner garnered the endless coverage.
It’s amazing the self-proclaimed “principles, ethics” the so-called patriotic Republicans will abandon when power and profit is at stake.
You damned well bet the fix was in this election and it certainly was rigged.
That is something to protest.
Will Americans care?
Will the Democratic leadership for once show a little gumption and fight for America and what’s right?
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Trump’s Ties to Russia Uncovered in “The Dworkin Report," Submitted to White House and Democratic Leadership http://www.keepamericagreat.us/thedworkinreport Washington, D.C. - November 10, 2016 - The Democratic Coalition released President-elect Trump’s known ties to Russia in a report titled “The Dworkin Report," sent to President Obama, Vice President Biden, Senator Harry Reid, Senator Dianne Feinstein, Senator Patrick Leahy, Senator Elizabeth Warren, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, and Congressman Keith Ellison on Thursday evening. The Dworkin Report, which can be found here, lays out 10 key pieces of evidence which provide a clear link between the President-elect and Russia, despite claims made by the FBI that there was no such connection to be found. The report is also clear to state that this is not a comprehensive list of the ties that the President-elect has to the country. “The FBI missed at least 10 key connections between President-elect Trump and Russia when they conducted their investigation and concluded that our President-elect had no links to the country," said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Coalition and author of the report. “It is imperative that the American people be made aware of this information."

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/10/veteran-spy-gave-fbi-info-alleging-russian-operation-cultivate-donald-trump A Veteran Spy Has Given the FBI Information Alleging a Russian Operation to Cultivate Donald Trump Has the bureau investigated this material? DAVID CORNOCT. 31, 2016 On Friday, FBI Director James Comey set off a political blast when he informed congressional leaders that the bureau had stumbled across emails that might be pertinent to its completed inquiry into Hillary Clinton's handling of emails when she was secretary of state. The Clinton campaign and others criticized Comey for intervening in a presidential campaign by breaking with Justice Department tradition and revealing information about an investigation—information that was vague and perhaps ultimately irrelevant—so close to Election Day. On Sunday, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid upped the ante. He sent Comey a fiery letter saying the FBI chief may have broken the law and pointed to a potentially greater controversy: "In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government…The public has a right to know this information." Reid's missive set off a burst of speculation on Twitter and elsewhere. What was he referring to regarding the Republican presidential nominee? At the end of August, Reid had written to Comey and demanded an investigation of the "connections between the Russian government and Donald Trump's presidential campaign," and in that letter he indirectly referred to Carter Page, an American businessman cited by Trump as one of his foreign policy advisers, who had financial ties to Russia and had recently visited Moscow. Last month, Yahoo News reported that US intelligence officials were probing the links between Page and senior Russian officials. (Page has called accusations against him "garbage.") On Monday, NBC News reported that the FBI has mounted a preliminary inquiry into the foreign business ties of Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chief. But Reid's recent note hinted at more than the Page or Manafort affairs. And a former senior intelligence officer for a Western country who specialized in Russian counterintelligence tells Mother Jones that in recent months he provided the bureau with memos, based on his recent interactions with Russian sources, contending the Russian government has for years tried to co-opt and assist Trump—and that the FBI requested more information from him. ...
