When does normal partisanship become treason?
Today is an interesting day in the news so far. As I am looking through my news feeds, I am seeing quite a few stories about Republican "treason". Hyperbole or no, it shows that it is becoming a topic on the table. Why?
The Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee are going to release a report saying Trump "did nothing wrong" as regards the withholding of the funds from Ukraine. That's quite remarkable. He did NOTHING wrong. The GOP defends every one of his actions and every one of his statements as being, so to speak, "perfect".
The Daily Beast, Matt Lewis (a conservative.
It's one thing for a moron like Donald Trump to try and lie his way through life, it's quite another when an entire political party tries to do so.
Sen. Angus King on CNN: "I sat through 25 hearings, briefing, meetings, probably more, on the question of what happened in 2016. In none of those meetings was there ever a hint, a breath, a suggestion, a word that somehow Ukraine was involved in the 2016 election .. . it was Russia."
This right here is the pure stuff. The real enemy, the evil trying to take America down, are not thuggish foreign leaders but the guy down the street with the Bernie Sanders sign. And if making common cause with the likes of Putin helps you defeat that Sanders fan, you do it.
Tucker Carlson goes off on media pundits who agree with intel assessments that Russia’s interfered in our elections: “The irony, of course, is that Putin, for all his faults, does not hate America is much as many of these people do. They really dislike our country.”
CNN confirms: The Republican-controlled Senate Intelligence Committee looked into allegations that Ukraine interfered in the 2016 election and found no evidence to support the claims, according to sources familiar with the matter.
We now have numerous Republicans, and the GOP House committee report , claiming that is proper to investigate the DNC and the Bidens in Ukraine, in direct contradiction to the findings their own party made previously in the Senate. Why? Simply to protect Trump and display their submissiveness to him.
This seems extremely questionable and in the ball park of traitorous behavior.
