Donald Trump’s ‘Very Special’ Victory in Syria
We've seen trump's ploy for three years: he names others with disparaging words that actually pertain to himself. He called Ted Cruz "lying" yet it's trump who's told us more than 12,000 lies while in office. He called Hillary "crooked" yet he's the one receiving bribes from supplicants patronizing his hotels. Now, the president who gave classified secrets to the Russian ambassador during his first week in office, the commander-in-chief who dismissed our country's intelligence agencies in favor of publicly defending Putin in Helsinki, has called whistleblowers and the Congressional investigation chairman a "traitor."
Asking foreign countries to discredit a political opponent illegally corrupts our elections. Conditioning our foreign policy with Ukraine on such political "favors" corrupts our national integrity. Withholding military aid from Ukraine defending itself against Russian incursion actually aids our enemy. That is treason.
Republican senators must chose: defend the traitor or defend the rule of law.
