Well, it took nearly a year, but somebody has finally squealed on Kevin McCarthy.
June 15, 2016: In a private meeting with his fellow House Republicans, McCarthy says, "There's two people I think Putin pays: [Congressman Dana] Rohrabacher and Trump. Swear to God."
After which Paul Ryan quickly shushes him. "No leaks," Ryan scolds. "This is how we know we’re a real family here."
Reminder to Ryan: "Family" doesn't mean squat. Michael had Fredo killed, you know.
So now the cat's out of the bag, which makes us think that Trump's troubles have taken a sledgehammer to Republican solidarity on Capitol Hill. That amuses us to no end. But it's still disgusting that, one month after Ryan swore everyone to secrecy, these fine Republican patriots nominated somebody to be President who they thought was in Vladimir Putin's pocket.
Every GOP House member in a swing district needs to be asked about this. (And no, Darrell Issa, you can't give the reporter the finger and run away.) Heck, ask 'em all. We cats HISS.
