"... Washington consulting firm--Black, Manafort, Stone, Kelly. The firm was known for running Republican political campaigns and then lobbying the politicians after they won their elections."

Yup, that's how the system works. For them, not us. First they lobby Republican voters in the primaries by spending gobs of money on gobs of typically misleading political ads. Then they lobby all voters in the November general elections by spending more gobs of money on more gobs of typically misleading political ads. Then they lobby the politicians they helped get elected by hounding them unmercifully for as long as they're in office. (And that won't be too long if those hounded politicians don't get in lockstep line.)

As long as We the People tolerate being lobbied slick lobbyists and their slick misleading electioneering ads, and as long as We the People tolerate our elected politicians being hounded to get in line like sheeple, what We the People see (and what We the People can't see because it's hidden somewhere) is what We the People get.
