The Trump-GOP Silence is telling
Listen here you intractable ignoramus. You are a treasonous piece of shit. You have brought shame and disgust to our Country. You are a National Security Threat. You are a threat to our Country. Your utter incompetence and lack of any coherent public policy or foreign policy doctrine continues to cause irreparable damage to our Country. Your lawlessness.
You have NO respect for our Laws.
You have NO respect for our Constitution.
You have NO respect for the oath you took.
You have NO RESPECT for our Democracy.
You have no respect for these United States of America.

You act with absolute impunity - of course you wouldn’t call the FBI. Factually speaking criminals and mobsters running a criminal enterprise are scared shitless of the FBI. The hardworking men and women of the FBI put criminals and mobsters in jail. Criminals and Mobsters have zero respect for our laws or our law enforcement officers who took an oath “to serve and protect”.
You took an OATH to...
Pursuant to the U.S. Constitution Article 2, Section 1:
Before he enter on the Execution of his Office, he shall take the following Oath or Affirmation:--"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."
Pursuant to USCS Const. Art. II, § 3 Take Care Clause —alternatively known as the: Faithful Execution Clause - requires the President of these United States:
“...take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed...”
You were sitting in OUR White House. In OUR Oval Office. Sitting behind the Resolute Desk and then had the audacity and temerity to say this bullshit? Your mendacity is unambiguously the most unAmerican and unPatriotic garbage you’ve uttered. Which is saying a lot given you a piece of gold-leafed shit.
EXCLUSIVE: Pres. Trump tells @GStephanopoulos he wouldn't necessarily alert the FBI if approached by foreign figures with information on his 2020 opponent: "It’s not an interference. They have information. I think I’d take it." https://t.co/yWRxMOaFqW pic.twitter.com/qwLw53s5yc— ABC News (@ABC) June 12, 2019
Seriously what in the actual fuck is wrong with you?
You are un-American.
You are un-Patriotic.
You represent the very worst of America
The only saving grace is in the sunset of your life. I know your name will be remembered as worse than Dr Mudd’s. That the last name Trump will be written in the annals of our Country’s history as one of the most corrupt and lawless administrations our Country has ever had. You are a disgrace. You are a traitor. You are a criminal. And Lady Justice is patient and persistent, she awaits you.
It’s the LAW Donald
In March I pointed out that Roy Cohn 2.0 (nope I’m not changing that because henceforth that’s Barr’s moniker) had “set a new standard” Ignorance of the law is not an affirmative defense - maybe your army of attorneys should READ the various applicable statutes. As clearly detailed on the FEC’s website.
Which unambiguously states in the context of our Country’s Election- foreign nationals are prohibited from the following activities:
- Making any contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or making any expenditure, independent expenditure, or disbursement in connection with any federal, state or local election in the United States;
- Making any contribution or donation to any committee or organization of any national, state, district, or local political party (including donations to a party nonfederal account or office building account);
- Making any disbursement for an electioneering communication;
- Making any donation to a presidential inaugural committee.
And let’s be super clear here what is acceptable, one really has to wonder if Trump has already accepted “a thing of value” given the secrecy Trump has in relation to Russia and China - Trump has gone as far as to taking the State Department’s Translator’s notes. The secrecy surrounding Trump & Putin’s communications - it is troubling.
Soliciting, accepting, or receiving contributions and donations from foreign nationals
The Act prohibits knowingly soliciting, accepting or receiving contributions or donations from foreign nationals. In this context, "knowingly" means that a person:
-Has actual knowledge that the funds solicited, accepted, or received are from a foreign national;
- Is aware of facts that would lead a reasonable person to believe that the funds solicited, accepted, or received are likely to be from a foreign national; or
- Is aware of facts that would lead a reasonable person to inquire whether the source of the funds solicited, accepted or received is a foreign national.
58 U.S.C. §30121. Contributions and donations by foreign nationals
It shall be unlawful for—
(1) a foreign national, directly or indirectly, to make—
(A) a contribution or donation of money or other thing of value, or to make an express or implied promise to make a contribution or donation, in connection with a Federal, State, or local election;
(B) a contribution or donation to a com- mittee of a political party; or
(C) an expenditure, independent expendi- ture, or disbursement for an electioneering communication (within the meaning of sec- tion 30104(f)(3) of this title); or
(2) a person to solicit, accept, or receive a contribution or donation described in subparagraph (A) or (B) of paragraph (1) from a foreign national.
11 CFR 110.20 - Prohibition on contributions, donations, expenditures, inde- pendent expenditures, and dis- bursements by foreign nationals (52 U.S.C. 30121, 36 U.S.C. 510).
In 2002 the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002, (colloquially known as the McCain-Feingold Act ) which was codified in to Public Law 107–155 (107th Congress) - strengthened the ban on foreign money in U.S. electioneering.
The verbiage in Section 303 of codified in to Public Law 107–155 is identical to 58 U.S.C. §30121
The Logan Act, codified (hence it’s LAW) 18 U.S.C. § 953
Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
This section shall not abridge the right of a citizen to apply, himself or his agent, to any foreign government or the agents thereof for redress of any injury which he may have sustained from such government or any of its agents or subjects.
Honestly we still do NOT know what was discussed in Helsinki and we know for sure that Moscow's read-outs are far more detailed than the barebones the Trump Administration has “proffered” - keep in mind Trump & Putin are scheduled to “meet up” at the G20 in Japan. Therefore it’s not out of the realm of possibility that Trump knew exactly what he was doing and saying in last night’s ABC interview.
My guess is he and/or Kushner have already received “Opposition Research”...therefore Trump is trying to establish a predicate and projecting his own onerous and criminal actions as to inoculate any potential damning article in the near future but the fact the GOP remains, largely silent. I hope when this American Horror Show ends - we never ever take our Democracy for granted/ Frankly Vice President Biden is 100% correct that Donald J Trump is in fact “an existential threat to our Democracy”
If we nominate Trump, we will get destroyed.......and we will deserve it.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) May 3, 2016
Oh and do not fall for the bullshit subversive propaganda that McCarthy just spewed. Opposition Research is NOT the same as the electronic break in and illegal stealing of DNC records and then having the Candidate and his Son amplify the “sweeping and systematic attack” on our 2016 election.
But sure let’s talk about FISC Kevin - since you opened the door to it in your off the rails press conference. Here’s my opening argument to pushback on your subversive bullshit and your obsequiousness to make Trump happy. I guess sorting starburst is so 2018? God how does your party not understand what a threat Trump is to OUR Democracy. One has to wonder why the GOP and Trump Administration has literally done next to nothing to protect the 2017 elections, the 2018 elections and likely playing catch up on the 2020 election.
While you're here, throw us a bone.
