Why We Can’t Trust the Senate to Investigate the Putin-Trump Relationship

Cotton

Senator from Arkansas, and traitor, Tom Cotton says: I think there’s no doubt this will be a fair inquiry,” Cotton told NBC’s Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press.” We’re already well underway, it’s been conducted in a bipartisan fashion, and Democrats and Republicans have been working well on it.”

BULLSHIT! I wrote that in caps, because this is a ‘huge’ lie. The Republican Party is the party of corruption, and they never censure their own. The term “thick as thieves” applies to them, and they have the majority in both houses.

The closest Republicans ever came to punishing one of their own was in 1999. Then Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, had been charged with 26 ethics violations; Republicans reduced the number to a single charge, and he was forced to resign, but received no other punishment.

Most violations by Republicans are ignored. Take the typical case of Mark Sanford, Congressman from South Carolina.

In 2009, while the Governor of South Carolina, Sanford disappeared for six days. He told his wife and family that he was planning to hike the Appalachian Trail. He was discovered in Argentina at the home of his mistress. Although there were questions regarding the use of taxpayer money to finance his illicit vacation, Republicans in the legislature refused to impeach the philanderer. He served his full term until 2011. In 2013, Republican voters ignored his deplorable actions and elected him to the House.

The American people cannot trust Republicans. The facts related to Trump’s long term relationship with Putin have been confirmed by the foreign press and a few legitimate American publications. None of Trump’s fake news outlets have committed to the facts.

The truth is that members of Trump’s circle of sinners have contacted those investigating the connection, and urged them to disregard the “fake reports.” This is telling in itself; they are frightened because the “truth could set America free.”

Even Republican Congressman Darrell Issa has called for an independent investigation, and suggested that Attorney General Jeff Sessions recuse himself because he was a member of Trump’s campaign organization.

Most Americans know the facts about Trump’s life; past and present; and it’s not ‘pretty.’ We have the right to know the extent of Trump’s relationship with Putin. Many members of his administration have close ties to the Russian president, and Trump refuses to denounce Putin for the truth; he is a murderer, and human rights violator.

Time for him to go. Trump is your illegitimate president.
