Yep. Tehran Tom got a ton of “contributions” from agents of a foreign power to betray his country. He and the rest of the Teapublican Treason Team all took Israel’s side against America’s, but Tehran Tom the Traitor Tot got paid nearly a million dollars to do so. Perhaps the other Teapubbies got such bribes as well, but we have the goods on Tommie:
Kristol’s Emergency Committee for Israel gave Tom Cotton nearly $1 million in his race for the Senate just five months ago, Eli Clifton reported. “Cotton received $960,250 in supportive campaign advertising in the last month.”
Cotton also got $165,000 from Elliott ManagementPaul Singer’s hedge fund. Singer is the billionaire who is trying to stop Obama’s Iran talks (Clifton’s reporting again).
Notice the pattern, Gentle Reader: money comes in, and a letter goes out. It is bribery, plain and simple.
Perhaps the other 46 Senators who tried to kneecap the Prexy with their illegal letter weren’t likewise bought by agents of a foreign nation, which if true could be at least some scant mitigation for their crimes. Scant but something. Tehran Tom was bought and paid for by another government than ours: and their interests are not the same as ours.
What else do we need to prosecute this f***ing traitor? This ain’t just the usual Racist Repub hatred of our black President: it is clear-cut espionage, betrayal of our nation, Judas-like behavior (without Mr. Iscariot’s subsequent remorse).
Tehran Tom the Traitor Tot. Think he stashed any of that million clams away to flee to Israel if the cops come knocking? This writer bets he did.
