GOP Lawmakers Say HELL NO To Trump’s Idea Of ‘Cyber Security Unit’ With Russia

Having just returned from the G20 summit and wired up on whatever drug or drugs he takes, President Trump went on a Sunday morning tweetstorm:

That last tweet, in which Trump mentions an “impenetrable Cyber Security unit” got immediate responses from members of the GOP who were appearing on the Sunday news shows.

John McCain, on Face the Nationhad this to say:

“I am sure that Vladimir Putin could be of enormous assistance in that effort since he’s doing the hacking.”

South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham was even clearer when it came to his view of cooperating with the Russians on cyber security:

“It’s not the dumbest idea I’ve ever heard—but it’s pretty close.”

Graham also wondered aloud why Trump refuses to accept that Russia meddled in the 2016 election despite all of the evidence they did:

“When it comes to Russia I am dumbfounded, I am disappointed, and at the end of the day he’s hurting his presidency by not embracing the fact that Putin is a bad guy.

“He is literally the only person I know of who doesn’t believe Russia attacked our election in 2016.”

Marco Rubio (R-FL) weighed in via Twitter:

So let’s see if I have this straight: the Russians hacked our election so they could help Trump win, but now we should cooperate with them on a high-level cyber security unit? Holy shit, why doesn’t Trump just invite members of the Russian intelligence services over to the National Security Agency so they can see exactly what we have on them and the rest of the world? Then again, are we quite sure Trump hasn’t already planted moles in the NSA and other American national security agencies?

With each day, it becomes even clearer that Trump and members of his administration cooperated fully with the Russians and are now trying to sell out the United States to Vladimir Putin as a means of keeping power via voter intimidation, misinformation, and, eventually, the changing of votes cast in the every election held in this country.

Robert Mueller, please hurry! We have got to get rid of these traitorous bastards!
