Exhausted

I am so tired of fighting every action that President Trump takes. His Party has forsaken their Constitutional Oath in order to protect the corruption of this President. We’ve never in US history had to contend with a man who attempts to rewrite our democracy, pervert the course of justice and abuse the rule of law more than President Trump. His immigration policies are inhumane and reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the 1930s. Exhausted though we all are, our goal remains steadfast. We will stay the course and uncover the truth. Putin has underestimated us as a Nation if he believes we will cave to his violent and authoritarian dreams of climbing into bed with his puppet President Trump.

Michael Cohen pleads guilty to a single count of lying to Congress

Jim Baker, the former counsel for the FBI wrote an article in Lawfare mag in November 2018 detailing a Watergate Road Map of how President Nixon obstructed justice in 1973. The parallels of Nixon’s crimes are uncannily similar to the alleged crimes of Trump and his thugs and corrupt cronies. Trump has tried to thwart the DOJ/FBI from the beginning of his term in office, but frankly, it was an outrage that the GOP ever nominated him in the first place. Because I had obviously been living under a rock for decades, I knew very little about Trump at the time. It took me 5 mins. to find out he is a mobster who’s spent his professional life dealing with thugs and convicted mafia conmen. It took me 10 minutes to discover he had been declared bankrupt a number of times, and it took me 15 minutes more to find out he was a bigot and a racist who liked to cozy up to authoritarian figures like Putin, Erdogan and Prince MBS of Saudi Arabia. No politician should have ever given Donald Trump a second look. Before he was nominated House Majority leader Kevin McCarthy asserted to fellow GOP leaders that Trump might be receiving payments from Vladimir Putin. Later he claimed he was joking, but in the world of politics, the old adage “where there’s smoke there’s fire,” applies. They should have dropped Donald Trump like a ton of hot bricks. They didn’t. So now we have to pay. But I am damned if I will listen to sanctimonious lectures from the very people who knew he was corrupt.

Shortly after Trump received the GOP nomination The Access Hollywood Sex tape broke with Trump and Billy Bush discussing how easy it was to pull chicks when you’re famous. What ensued was the most vulgar tape I’ve ever seen in my life as our future Prez discussed grabbing women by the privates. Not very Presidential and a warning to every Republican not to vote for this man. Instead, they embraced him and to my disgust voted him in as President. Since he has become President he has only succeeded in one thing. The USA has become the laughing stock of the world, and Donald Trump is mocked by Presidents and Prime Ministers alike as he circles the globe bringing hate and discontent wherever he travels. From Trudeau to Macron and Merkel to May Trump is despised the world over. Trump thinks of himself as a tough leader but actually, he is just a weak third rate bully whose desire is to rule the USA with an iron fist. He is trying to control the first amendment which has resulted recently in the death of a Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi at the hands of the Saudi’s. Shame on him and his administration for bowing to the pressure that the UAE has placed on his weak presidency.

Scott Pruitt, Tom Price, Ryan Zinke, Betsy DeVos, Stephen Miller, Mike Flynn Steve Bannon, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Paul Manafort, Michael Cohen, Rod Blum, Matt Whittaker, Chris Collins, Mick Mulvaney, Duncan Hunter, Jared Kushner, Rick Gates, Scott Taylor are all characters within the Trump admin that are mired in allegations of corruption. Some have been indicted, some are in prison, and some have been accused of corruption and have been fired or they resigned. The biggest scoundrel of the lot is President Trump. I’m exhausted.

Trump IS a target of the Mueller investigation. Contrary to Trump’s constant belly-aching that “it is a witch hunt,” Bob Mueller a Republican has indicted so far, George Papadopolous, Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort, Richard Pinedo, Alex Van der Swann, Konstantin Kilimnik, Michael Cohen, Sam Patten, Rick Gates, 13 Russian Nationals, 3 Russian Company’s, and 12 Russian GRU officers. Not exactly a witch hunt.

His investigation is far-reaching and I suspect will continue well into 2019. His investigation is about finding out if Donald Trump conspired with Putin to change the outcome of the Presidential election in 2016. He did.

Finally, Paul Manafort a convicted lifelong criminal having agreed to a plea deal in exchange for a lighter sentence from Bob Mueller has double-crossed the Special Counsel as it was discovered that his lawyer had been repeatedly briefing Trump on his discussions with the special counselor's office. Bob Mueller has abruptly ended his cooperation agreement with Manafort and has referred the matter back to the courts for immediate sentencing of Manafort.

Today Trump threatened the Democratic Congress that if they investigate him in any way, he will counter punch. “If they go down the harassment track, and harass the president and the administration, I think that would be the best thing that would happen to me,” Trump said. Let’s watch carefully how Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler react to his threat. My feeling is they’ll be more concerned with doing their job than worrying about what a third rate bully might do? I’m exhausted.
