As you may know, the right has been making outrageous, unsubstantiated claims about the murder of Seth Rich, a Democratic operative who was killed. Sean Hannity has been pushing the story along with right-wing fake news outlets.

Colorado State Sen. Tim Neville (R-Littleton) has never been shy to broadcast his supposed “pro-life” position.

In a Facebook post last week, University of Colorado (CU) Regent Sue Sharkey stated that “conservative views on a college campus are not respected, and certainly not accepted.”
I suppose it was inevitable. As each day brings new horrors committed by Trump, more and more Republicans begin to get nervous about owning his failures, and they try to cast the blame for his election on the real perpetrators—Democrats!
U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) wants a special prosecutor not only to dig into Russian interference in the last election but also to investigate the Obama Administration.
