There’s one thing we can all agree on, preexisting conditions should be covered. That’s why I support the PROTECT Act, one of the countless health care bills working its way through the Senate right now.

”So, the question is: Did they find the perfect patsy in Christopher Steele?”
”Deripaska, Surkov, and Trubnikov were not informing on the Kremlin. These are Putin’s guys. They were peddling what the Kremlin wanted the world to believe, and what the Kremlin shrewdly calculated would sow division in the American body politic.
“What is most interesting about Deripaska vis-à-vis the collusion caper is the fact that Christopher Steele was working for him and lobbying the U.S. government on his behalf. Steele, of course, is the British former intelligence agent who is the principal author of the “dossier”
— the unverified anti-Trump research project commissioned by the Clinton campaign and the DNC.”
