Corporate Democrat helping Trump-Saudi war on Yemen

This 21 December 2018 video from the USA says about itself:

Corrupt Democrats Are Dragging The Party Down

This corrupt Democrat got rich from the Yemen War. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

“Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD), one of five Democrats who joined the majority of House Republicans to block debate on the war in Yemen, had met with Saudi officials and foreign agents representing them on numerous occasions, TYT has learned.

In one instance, shortly after the war began, Ruppersberger’s office met with a senior Saudi embassy official to discuss the war. Some of the meetings appear in federal filings while another was disclosed to TYT by Ruppersberger’s office in response to TYT’s inquiries.

Ruppersberger has also accepted significant political contributions from firms representing Saudi Arabia and its coalition allies in the war, Justice Department records reviewed by TYT show.

Despite Ruppersberger’s position that “of course” he cares about the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, his office could not provide any examples of him speaking on the subject prior to the widely publicized vote.”
