The Bipartisan Takedown Of The Green Party
I was watching this video when Jill Stein made the point that it was the Republicans who run the investigative committee, and that gets forgotten in the hype.
So I did a couple searches.

One of the things that is missing from the right-wing press is any objections to the McCarthyism of this whole thing. The GOP is complicit is this most anti-democratic objective.
Of course the Dems are leading the charge.
The top Democrat on the panel, Virginia Sen. Mark Warner, would not confirm the investigation into Stein but noted on Tuesday that she was at what he called the "infamous dinner" with Putin. Michael Flynn, who later became Trump's national security adviser, also attended the 2015 dinner in Moscow. He is cooperating with special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into the Russian meddling and has pleaded guilty to a count of making false statements to FBI agents.
Warner also said Stein had said complimentary things about Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, who Warner said "clearly was being used by the Russians to take some of the hacked information and release into our political system."
The political takedown of the Greens this year can be duplicated in each and every election from now to eternity.
The Greens will never threaten the Dems again.
You have to wonder what sorts of dirty deals have been cut.
Does the GOP have designs on the Libertarians? Or are they more useful?
What did the Dems promise to give the Repubs?
