After Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R) Iowa announced he would not be releasing the transcript of their 10-hour interview with the head of Fusion GPS regarding the Trump Dossier. The Democrat Vice-Chair Diane Feinstein released it herself. Putting the lie to the GOP narrative that this “fake dossier” was the cause of the Russian investigation launched against the Trump campaign/administration.
In their desperate attempt to protect the President and his minions, Senators Grassley and Lindsey Graham (R) South Carolina, made a criminal referral to the Justice Department against former MI-6 Agent Christopher Steele that compiled the dossier. It should be noted that Steele is the one person known in the entire investigation that went to the FBI to report what he had seen.
The media is pouring thru the 300-page just released document. Two things we already know. By the time the FBI talked to Steele, they’d already heard much of the information through a “human source” within the Trump campaign. That source is believed to be George Popadoupolus who in a drunken state told Austrailian officials that, “Russia had dirt on Hillary Clinton.” We also know that Christopher Steele, once the top Russia agent in MI-6, believed that Donald Trump, one of the two remaining candidates for President of the United States, was being blackmailed.
The dossier contains multiple avenues of potential blackmail whether it be undisclosed financial dealings with Russians or urinating hookers in a hotel room. It was likely this discussion of potential blackmail that forced Republicans to circle the wagons to protect this President, despite making themselves complicit in a Russian conspiracy. I submit that criminal referrals should be made to the Justice Department requesting criminal charges be placed against Chuck Grassley, Lindsey Graham, and House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes, who have all chosen Trump and Russia over their patriotic duty.
The first rule of obstruction is that you don’t talk about obstruction. When Donald Trump went to FBI Director James Comey to ask him to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn. He talked about it. He told Reince Priebus, then his Chief-of-Staff, who made handwritten notes which are now in the hands of Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
After he fired Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions was being pressured to recuse himself because of his role in the Trump campaign. He told the White House Counsel Don McGahn, to lobby Jeff Sessions to not recuse himself so that he could protect Trump.
The new book written by Michael Wolff quotes multiple Republicans from his own staff and alleged close friends, that describe Trump as “stupid,” a “moron,” and an “idiot.” They were right!
Donald Trump simply doesn’t know when to shut the hell up. At a ceremony honoring three Navajo Indian veterans who served as code talkers during World War II, Trump went off script and referred to Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas.” Making things worse, the ceremony was conducted directly beneath a portrait of Andrew Jackson who as President was directly responsible for forcible removal of many tribes from their native lands.
Because Trump thinks apologies make him appear weak. He then sent out Sarah Huckabee Sanders to argue that calling Warren, “Pocahontas” wasn’t really a racial slur, basically claiming Trump is the sole arbiter of what’s racist and what isn’t.
The story of Pocahontas has been romanticized by Disney band watered down in schoolbooks. As a teenager, she was captured by the British and brought to England, where she ultimately married a white man and bore a child. She died of unknown causes at the age of 19.
That Trump is a racist has always been clear. That he doesn’t have the ability to curtail his urges even at formal ceremonies celebrating the people he chooses to disparage is #Sad.
Elizabeth Warren responded, “It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur,”
John Norwood, General Secretary for the Alliance of Colonial Era Tribes said the nickname, “smacks of racism.” He added, “The reference is using a historic American Indian figure as a derogatory insult and that’s insulting to all American Indians.”
While this President may ultimately go down in flames due to conspiracies with Russia and financial crimes. We should never forget he’s also a despicable human being.
Patriot, the word you described in your pardon of Sheriff Joe Arpaio, doesn’t mean what you apparently thought it did. The word you meant to use was racist. Let me show you:
Patriot: a person who vigorously supports their country and is prepared to defend it against enemies or detractors.
Racist: a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
Maybe you got confused because “Sheriff Joe,” vigorously attacked people of other races. A mistake
anybody only you could make.
When Joe defied the courts, he placed himself above the law. His engaging in racial profiling was illegal and racist and he kept on doing it. With your pardon and support, you’ve forever linked yourself with a racist. You’ve done that
a lot lately all your life.
Hopefully, this will help you to use the correct word next time. No need to thank me. I’m here to serve.
