My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
It’s amazing how transparent the GOP has become. I would love to play a game of chicken with them. Having been shamed by Senator Dianne Feinstein and her courageous release of the Senate interview of Fusion GPS founder now they release their interview. The fake news that the Fusion GPS dossier was paid for Hillary Clinton is a misnomer. Originally it was contracted by a republican opponent of trump. When Trump won the nomination, I am so sad to say, at that point the Fusion GPS people shopped it to the Hillary campaign. I wish we could get this story straight but as with everything in this White House that lies 5.6 times a day the truth is out there but not coming from the White House.
The GOP is fond of saying that this dossier was commissioned by the Hillary Clinton campaign. What they always fail to say was that it was first commissioned by a republican running against Donald Trump.
They refuse to let the transcripts of several witness interviews be released to the public including those of Donald Trump jr. The problem is that they have no basis for not allowing this to be released. In Watergate there was a separation of the powers that made it difficult to get papers released because they were asking for documentation from the executive branch and the legislative branch does not have power to do so as easily as it does to ask for its own documents. Once again the GOP is trying to hide the truth about the Russian collusion with the Trump campaign and the cover-up and obstruction of justice. Let’s not forget this happened during to transition and Mike Pence was in charge during the transition. So this does not stop with Donald Trump it goes throughout his campaign and White House.
