GOP Congressman Admits Some Republicans Are Spreading Russian Propaganda

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner (R-OH) admitted Sunday that some members of his party are actively engaged in spreading Russian propaganda, especially when it comes to the invasion of Ukraine by Russia.

CNN host Jake Tapper noted that  Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) had recently said that Russian propaganda had “infected a good chunk of [his] party’s base.”

“He singled out primetime shows on conservative channels,” Tapper said. “Do you agree with him? And how big is this problem?”

“Oh, it is absolutely true,” Turner concurred. “We see directly coming from Russia attempts to mask communications that are anti-Ukraine and pro-Russia messages, some of which we even hear being uttered on the House floor.”

“I mean, there are members of Congress today who still incorrectly say that this conflict between Russia and Ukraine is over NATO, which, of course, it is not,” Turner added. “Now, to the extent that this propaganda takes hold, it makes it more difficult for us to really see this as an authoritarian versus democracy battle, which is what it is.”

Will the Republican Party ever rid itself of the Russian apologists who populate its ranks? Or is the GOP too afraid of what happens if they do?

WATCH Eric Swalwell DESTROY Jim Jordan With A Brutal Reference To ‘What Happens In A Locker Room’

Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) laid a brutal verbal burn on House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-OH) for suddenly being “interested in what happens in a locker room,” a clear reference to a sex scandal that took place on the Ohio State University men’s wrestling team while Jordan was an assistant coach for the program from 1987 to 1995.

During committee debate on a bill sponsored by House Republicans to address the issue of biological women supposedly being “victimized” by sharing locker rooms with transgender women, Swalwell took aim at Jordan.

“I guess it’s a good thing that some folks on the other side are now interested in what happens in a locker room, and we’re not going to look the other way, okay, I’ll accept that,” Swalwell remarked.

Swalwell added that transgender people victimizing women in locker rooms is not actually a “thing.”

“This is not a thing, and so I just invite my Democratic colleagues who have so passionately spoken on this to continue to passionately speak on this, but to just reject this as a thing.”

Turning to Jordan, Swawell declared, “And thank you for caring about what happens in locker rooms.”

HuffPost notes, “That was a not-so-subtle reminder of a time when Jordan was in a locker room as an assistant wrestling coach at Ohio State University, where he was accused of ignoring molestation allegations against the team’s doctor.”

Swalwell’s comments set off a torrent of commentary on social media.

Matt Gaetz’s Victory Lap Over Mitch McConnell’s Decision To Step Down Bites Him On The A**

Rep. Matt Gaetz’s (R-FL) online reaction to a decision from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to step down as GOP Senate leader in November boomeranged badly on him, resulting in complete humiliation for the controversial Floridian.

Gaetz expressed his glee on Twitter/X, posting, “We’ve now 86’d: McCarthy McDaniel McConnell Better days are ahead for the Republican Party.”

It didn’t take long before others reminded Gaetz that failed former president Donald Trump had once supported McCarthy, McDaniel, and McConnell. They also pointed out that the GOP has been on a major losing streak since it chose to fully embrace Trump despite his legal woes and attempts to overturn the 2020 election.

MT Greene Storms Out Of A House Hearing When A Democrat Puts Her On Blast

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) angrily stormed out of a House committee meeting Tuesday after a Democrat reminded her that while she loves to blame her opponents of being soft on crime, she’s the one who hugged Jan. 6 defendants.

During the House Oversight Committee hearing, Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA) said he found it ironic that Greene was complaining about crime in Washington, D.C.

“I want to remind the gentlelady that it was her that actually organized a trip to the D.C. jail to hug and high-five and sit with the insurrectionists that actually attacked our Capitol,” Garcia said. “This is quite ironic that the insurrectionists that tried to overthrow our government in the Capitol City were being coddled — were being, were actually being coddled by, it’s quite a shame that you call them political prisoners or hostages, I think maybe you called them.”

Greene appeared to heckle Garcia at that point. She then stood and walked out of the room in a huff., which led Garcia to note, “So I think it’s quite interesting that my colleague was trying to talk about the safety of D.C. when she literally supported an insurrection, an attack on the Capitol, visited the prisoners.”

Garcia later had this to say about Greene on Twitter/X:

Marjorie Taylor Greene is bigoted, deranged, hateful, and completely unfit for office, as many noted on social media.

Democrat Burns Down Marjorie Taylor Greene In Withering Social Media Post

Controversial Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene (R) probably thought she’d laid a nasty burn on a Democratic House colleague Monday when she accused him of bad hygiene, but her comments came back to bite her right on the butt.

During a hearing of the House Rules Committee meeting, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) noted that all Greene wants to do is try and impeach as many members of the Biden administration as possible instead of actually governing.

“The clowns are running the circus. We’re wasting time on Marjorie Taylor Greene because she wants to impeach someone. Don’t get me started on her absurd censure resolution of Congresswoman Omar that she introduced because she doesn’t know how to use Google Translate.”

Rather than actually debate McGovern on the matter, Greene fired off a nasty post on Twitter/X in which she made a strange accusation against him.

“Wow, this is coming from the same guy who is well known to lay his suit jacket on the actual bathroom floor while spending a lot of time in the stall of the first floor bathroom of the Capitol. Eww. That’s probably when he comes up with all this [poop emoji].”

McGovern was more than ready for Greene, and his response was pure perfection.

“No idea what you’re talking about. What are you doing in the men’s bathroom aren’t you late for a klan meeting?”

Others then joined McGovern in slamming Greene.
