This is Putin, all day long, watching the Trump administration:
Look at this photo:
The current occupant of the White House shows us all we need to know about his approach to the COVID-19 crisis. Visiting the CDC in Atlanta, he is clearly old, confused, and in over his head. He doesn’t realize how much he doesn’t understand as he holds up a (to him) meaningless piece of paper like a child at show & tell. His failures will result in increased infections and deaths.
You know you’re in trouble when this person is supposedly in charge during a crisis.
Trump will not go quietly if he loses in November; and if he wins, well he may never leave…
U.S. Attorney General William Barr has stated that President Trump’s tweets about cases involving the Justice Department “make it impossible” for him to do his job. What he actually means is that Trump’s bragging and crowing make it very hard to hide what Barr is up to (putting the fix in for cases involving Trump cronies) behind the scenes.
The situation is so flagrantly outside the norms that over 2000 former Department of Justice officials have signed an open letter demanding that Barr resign.
You remember Moscow Mitch, right? This guy:
Well, he has a special message to anyone who wants new witnesses heard and/or additional documents provided in the Trump impeachment trial. His message to you is:
So must Lickspittle Lindsey Graham
According to Senate rules, the senators hearing the Trump impeachment trial must take this oath:
I solemnly swear (or affirm, as the case may be) that in all things appertaining to the trial of the impeachment of [President Trump], now pending, I will do impartial justice according to the Constitution and laws: So help me God.
Moscow Mitch has made it abundantly clear that he has no interest in anything resembling justice, bragging about predetermining the outcome.
Now, Lickspittle Lindsey says this: “I have made up my mind,” Graham said Saturday at a conference in Qatar. “I’m not trying to pretend to be a fair juror here.”
These two senators cannot participate in the trial as they have already promised to abrogate their responsibilities and void their oath.
And, just thinking aloud here, how does it help Trump if he is not removed from office when members of the Senate so blatantly admit that the fix is in?
It is bad enough that the denizens of the White House and their sycophants in Congress are ever more fervently repeating the conspiracy theories cooked up by the Russians. Now, Moscow Mitch has abdicated any responsibility for even trying to have the appearance of a fair Senate impeachment trial. Instead, he has publicly stated that he will allow the White House to control the trial. Trump and McConnell are clearly disloyal to the U.S., and completely in the thrall of Putin. This is sickening and will only get worse as they become increasingly emboldened.
Russia sees a way to defeat the U.S. by coopting our government and never having to fire a shot. Say thanks to the treasonous Republicans for handing our fate and future to Vladimir Putin.
Let Moscow Mitch tell you himself:
