Train carrying GOP lawmakers hits truck, 1 dead

A chartered train carrying dozens of GOP lawmakers to a Republican policy retreat in West Virginia struck a garbage truck in a rural Virginia town on Wednesday. No lawmakers or aides were reported injured, but the White House said one person was killed and another was seriously hurt.

Lawmakers said the fatality appeared to be someone who was on the truck. One lawmaker who was aboard the train, Rep. Tom Cole, R-Okla., said the vehicle had been ripped in half and said he saw a person wrapped in tarp and said emergency workers appeared to be “putting a body away.”

Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods says there were no reported injuries to passengers or crew members after the incident, which happened around 11:20 a.m. in Crozet, Virginia. Crozet is about 15 miles west of Charlottesville.
Nunes was on the train that crashed this morning

Then there is this time discrepancy which may (or may not) have a perfectly innocent explanation.

This lady is pointing out that while the accident happened at 11.20 am there is a tweet from Chuck Schumer dated 9.21 am (before the accident happened).

Awful to hear of my Republican colleagues' train accident. We're praying for the safety of everyone on the train and in the truck.

The date stamp above seems to be NZ time, so all date stamps are local??

Date stamps are, it is true,notoriously subject to manipulation but there seems to be both motive and, probably opportunity for the Deep State to try and take out their enemies.

Just thinking aloud.

Others are saying it

As his memo criticizing the FBI nears publication, Democrats and the mainstream media are stepping up attacks on Devin Nunes (R-California), chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, even suggesting he’s a “Russian agent.”

On Monday, the committee voted along party lines to make public the currently classified four-page memorandum commissioned by Nunes. The actual contents of the memo are unknown, though media have speculated it accuses the FBI of obtaining a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign on the basis of a dossier paid for by the Clinton camp.

Democrats have denounced the decision as “cynical and destructive,” in the words of Representative Adam Schiff (D-California), the committee’s ranking member. Some media commentators have gone even further, insinuating that Nunes might be an agent of the Kremlin....

MSNBC suggests Devin Nunes is a RUSSIAN AGENT after voting to ! (He's the Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee) 😆

Is it possible that the Republican chairman of the House Intel Committee has been compromised by the Russians? Is it possible that we actually have a Russian agent running the House Intel Committee on the Republican side?" MSNBC panelist John Heilemann asked on Monday, stumping Senator Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut).

I-I-I-I hope that's not the case,” Murphy replied. “I certainly have no information to suggest that it is.”

Doesn't his behavior speak of that, though?” Heilemann asked. “I mean, I'm not the first person who's raised this. He's behaving like someone who's been compromised, and there are people in the intelligence community and others with great expertise in this area who look at him and say, ‘That guy's been compromised.'”

He later asked the same question of Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-California), who quipped that Nunes has been “compromised by the White House.”

I don't expect the YouTube video to survive there for long

"The Greenbrier is also the site of a massive underground bunker that was meant to serve as an emergency shelter for the United States Congress during the Cold War. The bunker was code named "Project Greek Island,"
