18 months? For spying and conspiracy against America? I guess that's what helping to funnel tens of millions of dollars to trump and the GOP will get ya. A lil slap on the wrist and a moderate finger shaking.
I hope her cooperation was worth the small sentence she was given. She added much harm to this country and I hope American citizens in the NRA and her boyfriend pay dearly for their involvement!
That’s it?! That’s like the sentence of a mom paying a bribe to get her kid into college. Wtf? If she were Muslim she would never see the light of day again.
Really! Just 18 months! If she were black, she would have gotten life!
And where is our pres and vice-pres today...speaking to the NRA who have been linked to this Russian agent!!!!! they are there on our dime also!!! They are NOT doing the work of the country!!!!
Boohoo chick. You helped the NRA terrorist organization elect trump...you should have gotten 20 years.
None of these sentences have been long enough— I’d say an investigation into the Judges is in order.
Not nearly enough time. At all. She was here on behalf of an adversarial foreign government, to undermine Our elections. The NRA and everyone else who colluded with her needs to be investigated too.
Must have been one of Trumps girlfriend
18 months for spying isn’t a long sentence.
She knew exactly what she was doing. She got off too easy.
Wayne LaPierre must have pulled some strings to get her such a light sentence!
Should have given her a life sentence... that would have been the right message to send to Trump and Putin
Reality Winner got 6 years for leaking information about Russia hacking our election.
So I guess it balances out?
Stiff sentence? I know people doing 5 to 10 in fl prisons for stealing ac units off forclosed homes. She commited crimes against the US and gets 18 months
She Putin the intelligence gathering work only to be Trumped by Mueller.
i don't believe her words of truth and victim
good - not long enough though, for espionage...unless she is 'cooperating' for a lighter sentence?
Watch out for the Novichok, Maria!
Since when is 18 months the sentence for spying and conspiracy? Our justice system is upside down. Years for having some weed on you.
Oh yeah she sounds really remorseful.
Improve our relationship with the two countries. You can’t be serious. How does spying help relationships?
putin and trump sends thoughts and prayers
Why isn't she getting ETERNAL life in prison?
18 months for being a spy? People are in jail for weed longer than that. People of color that is. I guess feds think she’ll get her punishment from Russia.
Amesty for all nonviolent weed conviction. Legalize MJ and scrub the records.
Every citizen, regardless of status, should be able to vote because they are subject to the laws that are created.
I am sick and tired of this whole bullshit republican spin off. I hate to say this, I have been a republican most of my adult life; but it seems that I have to reevaluate my integrity and my character. I cannot go on supporting the lies that the republican party has embraced so dearly. Ever since Trump came into office, my husband has even said at this point in time with all the bullshit thats going on; the republican party is even making me question my belief in God because there is no way in hell that God had anything to do with Trump or the republican parties actions at this point in time.
Sorry I am with Pete on this one. With the understanding that if they cannot vote they cannot be used to build up the voting block of the electoral college.
Though I agree with the sentiment, I do believe the answer to both questions should be the same: yes.
I agree. I do not see why a citizen should not be able to vote especially if they are in jail. This is good for the Republicans if they cannot vote as they would probably vote Democrat. More voter suppression.
Once they have completed their sentence, their voting rights should automatically be restored. Legalize weed and release nonviolent offenders and purge their records.
Murderers, rapists and child molesters gave up the right to have a say in society by doing their crimes. Lesser criminals, sure, they can vote. I never want to have a child molester have a say in what their punishment should be.
WILL GIVE THEM SUCH A INJECTION OF RESPONSIBILITY
MERCY ON ALL
When you are convicted of a felony you lose some rights, such as the right to go whenever you want, etc. One of the rights you lose it the right to vote. The right to vote should be lost for at least the duration of the incarceration.
In a country that imprisons more of its citizens than any other nation on Earth and that has such an outlandish racial disparity in its prison population, the notion that inmates shouldn’t be allowed to vote is monstrous.
How are they going to be informed on who is even running. People in prison are kept in the dark. When a relative got out of prison he asked me who was President. He actually didn't know. By the way, he served his time and is now out, a model employee, a father, grand father once again. I am proud of his accomplishments!
GIVE PEOPLE IN JAIL A LIFT
LET ALL ALL VOTE
I personally am disgusted people are insinuating all incarcerated people are murderers and rapists.
Tell that to the GOP who are running ads off of Bernie's stupid comment. Even one of his own co-chairs disagreed with him. Give non-violent offenders the right to vote but if dems start saying that terrorists should vote then Trump will be around for another 4 years.
