Protestors target GOP backlash to Russia probe at Devin Nunes fundraiser for Cathy McMorris Rodgers

The Spokesman-Review asked that a reporter be allowed to attend and report on the the fundraising lunch, which cost $250 a plate or $500 to meet with Nunes. McMorris Rodgers declined the newspaper’s request. More than 100 protesters gathered outside, many of them holding signs alleging a link between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin. Others criticized McMorris Rodgers for her ties to Trump that – while strained on issues involving trade – have been largely conciliatory regarding the president’s policy positions.
