A bi-partisan group of U.S. senators say America should be alarmed by Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Senators Chuck Schumer, John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Jack Reed called Sunday for an investigation into intelligence agencies’ conclusion that Russian hacking helped Trump defeat Clinton.

Trump continues to build his mad-dog generals and CEO-heavy cabinet as Exxon-Mobile CEO Rex Tillerson emerges as the likely new secretary of state. Tillerson seems to share Trump’s Vladimir Putin fanboy attitude.

In 2013 he got the Order of Friendship from Putin. Trump often mentioned his admiration for the former KGB Colonel on the campaign trail.

Sanders’ Political Revolution Poised To Spearhead Resistance

The political movement that formed around Sen. Bernie Sanders is moving into the next phase of what Sanders calls “our revolution.”

It’s now going to spearhead resistance to America’s one-party government in the New Year.

Earlier this year Senator Sanders defined what this political revolution means to him.

“A political revolution means that we involve tens of millions of people in the political process today to stand up and fight for their rights—to stop the disappearance of the American middle class and say that our government belongs to all of us and not just a handful of wealthy campaign contributors.”

Sanders is scheduled to be at a town hall meeting Monday at the UAW Local 72 hall in Kenosha, Wisc.
