Some of the outlier sites on the far edge of the left are screaming bloody murder, because the Senate Judiciary Committee is investigating Jill Stein over whether she committed any crimes by assisting Russia install Donald Trump in the White House. In my opinion, it’s too long in coming, because Stein did as much to help Trump as anyone in Trump’s campaign. Fortunately I found a source that saves me some work here, because he expressed my view perfectly.
She spent the entire 2016 election inexplicably pushing pro-Russia policies at the expense of the United States. She traveled to Moscow and had dinner with Vladimir Putin and Michael Flynn. She kept insisting that Americans would somehow be worse off with Hillary Clinton than they would be with Donald Trump. If you’ve spent all year waiting for fringe leftist pariah Jill Stein to be investigated as part of the Trump-Russia scandal, that moment has finally arrived.
The Senate Intelligence Committee has asked Jill Stein to turn over all documents relevant to the Trump-Russia scandal, according to a new BuzzFeed report (link). This does not mean that Stein is guilty of being an active participant in the Trump-Russia conspiracy to rig the election. But at the very least she’s a material witness, based on her dinner with Putin and Flynn in December of 2015, and this move by the Senate suggests there may be more to it.
The key question here is why the Trump-Russia investigation is just now targeting Jill Stein. The publicly available evidence, which is eye-popping but circumstantial, has been in plain public view all along. This move suggests that it’s focused on something else about Jill Stein and Russia that’s not publicly available. Considering that Flynn just cut a plea deal weeks ago, it’s possible – but not a given – that investigators have learned something new about Stein from Flynn… [emphasis added]

Let me add that she appeared repeatedly on RT, Putin’s propaganda network, and regularly passed on Russian propaganda planted by Russian fake news sites.
I have nothing against the Green Party, and support Greens in elections where their candidacy does not help Republicans. Nevertheless, Stein should be driven from politics, because she intentionally screwed America in an attempt grow her party.
