Trump is a traitor who won’t defend the integrity of his own country’s election system from Russian election hackers. Think about that. After the indictment of thirteen Russians Friday, Trump is now literally assisting them in a cover-up if he fires Mueller. He is also now colluding with them in real time if he fails to do anything to the purpose of securing the country against future election attacks in 2018 and 2020–or resists deeper inquiries into Russian election hijacking.
What do the Russians have on Trump that makes him want to protect them and not us? And patriotism-wise, why aren’t conservative losing their minds over this? What kind of leader protects himself and another nation against his own nation, downplaying and resisting even basic inquiry? Since 2014 the Russians have been working to upend our democratic republic.
Trump’s electoral college margin was achieved by a swing of just 70,000 votes in three states, and so it is that we now literally have Putin’s president, and not our own, installed in office. In other words, 2016 was not a fair fight–its scales were tipped by Russian interference–and so everyday that Trump now casts shade on Mueller or resists inquiry into that interference is an act of collusion.
Put another way, it’s increasingly apparent that Russian and American oligarchs have been colluding to destroy our democracy. One of those oligarchs is Trump. And it looks like they might well succeed. We thus need to vote in 2018–all of us. Only by Democrats taking back Congress will we arrest this terrible rot that is currently plaguing our democratic system of government. Trump is a Russian wolf in sheep’s clothing. He will not protect us. Patriotic Democrats must step-up, run for office, and vote.
