Trump and Treason

The following statement by Michael Moore appeared today on
the Huffington Post.  I couldn't have said it any better 
and Mr. Moore is right on.  

We are, indeed, in the midst of a national emergency with a 
person who appears to be a felonious traitor in the White House!

The Democratic Party needs to declare a National Emergency. For the first time in our history, the President of the United States and his staff are under investigation for espionage. This announcement, by the head of the Trump-friendly FBI, is a shock to our democracy. The Democratic leadership in the House and Senate needs to bring a halt to all business being done in the name of this potential felony suspect, Donald J. Trump. No bill he supports, no Supreme Court nominee he has named, can be decided while he is under a criminal investigation. His presidency has no legitimacy until the FBI - and an independent investigative committee -- discovers the truth. Fellow citizens, demand the Democrats cease all business. "The American people have a right to know if their President is a crook." -- Richard Nixon

Addendum:  It appears that contrary to his own words and the words of Trump, Paul Manafort, Trump's former campaign chairman, was indeed working directly with Putin and the Russians to extend Russia's influence in the U.S.  One way to do that, of course, was to get Trump elected.

There was a comment online at one of the Canadian newspaper Facebook pages yesterday about Comey testifying in the hearing. A Trump supporter said this was a matter of the word of an intelligence officer over the word of the leader of the free world.

I countered that this was about a professional who's served his country versus a washed up real estate casino con man who's never served anything but himself.

It is imperative that the Congress and various security organizations do their duty to prosecute the guilty . The future of our form of government might be in the balance.

We must never allow our systems to be subverted, no matter where the truth leads us! This cannot be passed off as politics as usual, either foreign or domestic! No one should be above our laws for any reason.

Well said! The Casino operator did not even serve himself well. His reputation was terrible, which leads to mistrust. He is a known liar, opportunistic scoundrel.

He did manage to get elected, with help from the Russians, and dishonest politicians that put personal gain before duty to country and an uneducated electorate that preferred lies to truth. Truth or does not know the difference. Now they will experience the reality and might learn to try harder to separate facts from fantasy.
