Looks like Short Pants Andy has some ‘splainin’ to do:
Anybody buy that? I don’t.
Notice, too, that he mentions “volunteers from across the country”, NOT professional operatives from outside of the country? He’s a weaselly one, that one.
Also, notice how he deflects with “what about Trudeau”, not answering the actual question?
Meanwhile, here’s the lowdown on the guy mentioned, the one Short Pants doesn’t want to answer any questions on:
Michael “Mike” Roman is an American political operative.
Roman was Director of Special Projects and Research for President Donald Trump, from January 20, 2017, until April 2018.
In his personal blog, Election Journal, Roman self-describes as a “veteran political consultant and private investigator.” Politico and The New York Times describe Roman as an opposition researcher.
He began his career as a Republican Party activist in Philadelphia, his hometown. Early in his career Roman was a political consultant in his home state of Pennsylvania and in New Jersey. He was director of Election Day operations at the Republican National Committee. He has been employed by the George W. Bush, Rudy Giuliani and Sen. John McCain presidential campaigns. Roman also served as Chief of Staff to former Illinois Congressman Bobby Schilling.
Roman was a senior advisor on the Trump Campaign and headed up the election integrity program.
Prior to joining the Trump presidential campaign, Roman headed up an intelligence gathering operation for Charles and David Koch, industrialists and high-profile GOP donors. The office, now defunct, “conduct(ed) surveillance and intelligence gathering on… liberal opponents” of conservative policies.
Yeah, I can see why he didn’t want to answer the question, as well as why he deflected so much. I can also see why he didn’t want to talk about his dual citizenship — which, be it noted, is NOT a birthright, but something you actually have to apply for.
And don’t even get me started on that other nasty far-right Yankee hack in his campaign, Georganne Burke.
