The Trump administration cannot exist in an atmosphere of transparency. They have become the most secretive White House in history since Richard Nixon was in office. Standard operating procedure has become lie first and lie again later to explain the first lie.
Trump and his circle of sinners have zero credibility, and zero qualifications for the positions they hold. They constantly attack the first amendment. Trump has waged a war against the legitimate media since 2015. He chooses to believe fake-news, such as FOX Noise, Breitbart, and Alex Jones.
Today, Capitol reporters were told to ‘stop conducting interviews in the Senate hallways.’ This unconstitutional rule obviously originated from Mitch McConnell, who constantly chooses to refuse answering a direct question.
“Reporters were in hallways this morning per usual. Gallery staff were dispatched to issue verbal directive: Stop filming,” Kasie Hunt, a congressional reporter with NBC News, wrote on Twitter. “Gallery staff told us the decision was from the Senate Rules Committee and to call them for future interview permission.”
What is our government attempting to hide from the American people? Are they that desperate and afraid of expulsion from their lives of luxury and privilege?
“I was just told I cannot stand outside of the Budget Committee hearing room to interview lawmakers,” Bloomberg TV chief Washington correspondent Kevin Cirilli wrote on Twitter. He added he had scheduled an interview with Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) that was “canned last second” because of the alert.
The American people have a right to know what those we elect are doing in Washington. They serve us, not we them. As long as I can remember, politicians have hidden information from the American people under the guise of ‘national security.’ I do not accept this response; once again, I believe that the people have a right to know, and will never accept the judgment of corrupt politicians.
Trump’s circle of sinners is living in fear of the truth. The truth will set the American people free from a recessive and immoral administration.
Understandably the Capitol press corp is incensed. For decades, they have been forced to interview Congressmen and Senators in hallways, and any other venue where they cannot hide. Trump’s administration continues to adopt the tactics of Richard Nixon and his advisers. He must have a great deal to hide.
Please re-post; thank you.
