Why did 8 Republican senators go to Moscow last July 4?

 
Clearly Republicans go where the money is, which I guess is mob-ruled Russia. What I want to know is: who came up with the brilliant idea and set this trip up?

The trip wasn't exactly secret:

GOP senators visited Moscow on July 4, warned Russia against meddling in 2018 election: report

Quote
A group of GOP lawmakers spent July 4 in Moscow after several days of meetings with Russian officials, according to NPR.

The group, which included seven Republican senators and one House member, was the first congressional delegation to visit Russia since the country’s annexation of Crimea in 2014.

The GOP lawmakers, Sen. Richard Shelby (Ala.), Steve Daines (Mont.), John Thune (S.D.), John Kennedy (La.), Jerry Moran (Kan.) and John Hoeven (N.D.), and Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas), spent July 4 in Moscow’s U.S. Embassy, NPR reported.

The trip comes amid bilateral planning between the U.S. and Russia for next month’s sit-down between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
...
The lawmakers reportedly discussed Russian influence in U.S. elections during their meetings over the past week, but Moran told The Associated Press that every Russian official they spoke to denied the Kremlin's involvement.

Nor particularly difficult to find news reports via search engine, which I did.

The trip was publicly known, with some common sense purposes, but I'm sure DUpipo are deep enough into the Trump-Russia Collusion Fantasy-Narrative that they'll be untroubled by facts.

Even got the number wrong, 7 not 8 (6 senators and 1 rep).
The policies that are indorsed by this party, that they backer of which are much of the 1 percent, causes a social structure much like the one back before the Revolution.

DU member vlyons seems to have fallen for a clickbait article, and used the article title for the thread title (which is something I normally do when starting a thread). Clickbait fake news articles play fast and loose with facts, even when they aren't false-flag troll pieces. False-flag or Prog deceiver, vlyons fell for clickbait fake news.

Did pre-DUmmyland DUmmies care that Fat Teddy and Democrats met with Russians often.   Not sure of Fat Teddy, but is called international diplomacy.
