Donald Trump is guilty of multiple ethics violations. He violated the Constitution more times than I have fingers. He has maintained a close relationship with Vladimir Putin since 2005, and leaves no doubt the he colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign. Now he wants taxpayers to pay for his legal fees to defend his crimes.
Trump has already cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars for his golf trips, and other unnecessary excursions. They were not journeys to conduct government business.
Trump’s attorneys are having a difficult time representing your illegitimate president. Here is a joint statement from his staff.
“He won’t follow instructions. After one meeting in which they urged Trump to steer clear of a certain topic, he sent a tweet about that very theme before they arrived back at their office.”
Trump is using his office as a means to rape the American people, and enhance his personal wealth. He continues his refusal to divest his interests in foreign business. He is wasting more taxpayer money on a ridiculous ‘voter fraud commission.’ Republicans are allowing this to occur, although multiple investigations by the FBI have proven that actual voter fraud averages a negligible percentage during all elections nationwide. Between 2000 and 2012, only 31 cases were proven intentional.
Trump’s proposals will increase the national debt. Why should he be allowed to use our money for his legal defense? This would be a dangerous and costly precedent.
I have a suggestion. After watching and listening to Donald Trump for more than five-and-one-half months, I agree with many psychiatrists and psychologists; Trump is mentally incapacitated and must be removed from office. If Republicans cared about our country and its future, they would invoke Article 25 and remove him from office today. He is harming our country now and for many years to come.
With the exceptions of Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Kamala Harris, no one in Washington has the courage to do the right thing, or to offer the American people facts as they truly are. America is under neo-fascist rule, and that cannot be allowed. Trump has taken a dump on our Constitution with attempts to repeal the first and fourth amendments. He must leave the White House and never return.
Please re-post; thank you.
