    Let the voters be the judge of that statement.

    This is the face of a disturbing political environment. How does he ever get votes outside of his immediate family?

    Rohrabacher is a typical republican vicious jerk who believes himself above the law. This particular "Guilt by association" seems as guilty as they come. But Rohrabacher is in total denial of the facts. He got caught and denies everything. So typical.

  • Discrimination is not a right.

    "Rohrabacher — who faces both Republican and Democratic challengers in his 2018 re-election bid — has said that he considers himself the “ultimate patriot,” and not, as some have suggested, a shill for Russian interests.''

    And so called "Men of God" have proven to be child molesters. I wonder what his point is? People aren't always what they seem; don't trust him? Except in this case he may be exactly what he seems.

    For starters, it's a matter of public record of Trump’s tax and business practices, bankruptcies, 4,600 ++ law suits, 19+ sexual accusations, hush $$ payoffs and money laundering, in bed with Russia and the list is never ending. He inherited over $200 million from his father. That's not a self made wealthy man. That's an heir's inheritance. He now sells his brand, that being his name. (I suggest you trumpskin all do a little research on the man you believe is so successful.) He got the majority of his wealth, other than inheritance, by breaking laws, rules, contracts, not paying contractors, not paying employees, scams, fraud and bankruptcies. He places much of his wealth, the tangible, under his children's and now grandchildrens names, so he doesn't have to list it on filings of bankruptcy or taxes. He is audited regularly because he does his best to only pay what HE THINKS he should, if anything at all. Does this sound like an honest business man to you? The man's a dirty player con artist. Every other word out of his mouth is a lie. Any endeavor with the Trump name on it has failed. Which includes casinos in Atlantic City that he said he only lent his name to and didn't own it. Well, he didn't. Not outright. His daughter did. To be clear, she was a toddler. And NO he doesn't use the system like any other American does. With court cases found against him, threatened, or companies and individuals he owes, Trump uses Bankruptcy Courts as his "get outta debt free" card. In the last four decades, he's filed 6 times (it would have been more but you can only do this once every 7 years), as the law allows. He uses legal stalling in courts with extensions or just doesn't pay, in order to clump it all together and screw people out of supplies, equipment, work done, etc., by bankruptcy. His net worth is based on "how he feels" at any given time of day. His contributions to the economy is negligible at best. Those that do work for him at the lower levels don't receive a living wage or benefits he has claimed. Many have more than one job or have to rely on food stamps and welfare. Is Rex Tillerson now happier - Yup - Putin is not so happy - that Tillerson Exxon/Russian Oil Rig/Deal didn't go so well for you eh, TrumPutin so T-REX has been relieved of his treasonous duty in Lifting the Russian Sanction for Fat Cooked Donnie -- HA busted!. Pompeo is now the next twump traitorous lying lapdog coming on board to join in the corruption abounding in the Republican controlled White House.

    The GOP wants to be friends with a dictator that assassinated an opponent with nerve gas in the UK. Think about it.

    this has become so partisan, i'd sooner trust the ny times than congressman from either parties pointing fingers. we need to let mueller finish his investigation who unlike the congress is acting with professionalism and integrity. senate seems to be conducting themselves far better than the house as well.

    If this is not a witch hunt, what is? Madness is consuming Washington.

    The congressman is a fellow traveler. By the way, most of the ruski spies caught have had nominal attachments to republican or "conservative" political affiliations. Maybe its just good cover. Rohrabacher is clearly a ruski asset. Other Rs have been facsist tools. Befor WW2 they marched around to the same slogan Trump uses today ; "America First" (car fare courtesy of Hitler's agents in the USA. Trump's father was of that ilk.

    I just don't get it. Why are most republicans okay with this kind of behavior with russia. I'd really like to know.

    Does the good Congressman know the North Korean nuclear program was facilitated by Putin?
