Senate Enablers

Posted in "North Carolina", Government, Government Politics, NC, Politics, Trump, Winston-Salem by helenofmarlowe on January 27, 2020

(My Letter to Editor published in Winston-Salem Journal. Foxx, Burr,and Tillis are, alas our NC representatives.)

It seems that every elected Republican in America is afraid of the bully in the White House. This will be their legacy.

I have a question for Representative Foxx, Senator Burr, and Senator Tillis.
If our next Democratic president — and there will be one, if this Republic stands — is impeached, will you defend the act of withholding crucial documents that Congress has a right to review?
Will you defend the next Democratic president if duly served subpoenoes are ignored and witnesses are ordered not to testify?
Will you defend the next Democratic president’s presumed right to follow this president’s lead in ignoring the immoluments clause of the constitution while possibly enriching — how can we know? — the White House family?
Mr. Trump promised that he would reveal his tax returns. He has not.
He promised he would put his assets into a blind trust. He has not.
He has called on his supporters to find out the name of the whistleblower, even though whistleblowers are protected by Federal law, and the whistleblower’s revelations have all been corroborated.
Many of Mr. Trump’s abuses of his office have been to the advantage of Russia.
Is this the legacy you want?
I voted against Mr. Trump, as did the majority of American voters. And I fear that we are witnessing the crumbling of the United States of America under the leadership of an
authoritarian would-be dictator, just as we are witnessing the crumbling integrity our own NC representatives who tremble in fear of Mr. Trump’s tweets.
I suggest that Mr. Trump’s supporters change their hats to read MRGA – Make Russia Great Again.
