The greatest threat to the United States is our conservative Congress.
We know that Russia interfered with our 2016 presidential election. Several members of President Trump’s campaign have admitted to, or been indicted on, charges involving Russian contacts. The Trump campaign may have colluded with Russia.
Conservatives, who used to accuse liberals of being soft on Russia, are not only ignoring Russian involvement but are trying to stop Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation. What are they covering up, and why?
Greedy conservatives ignore Trump’s sins—lying, racism, harassment of women, failure to acknowledge Russian involvement, etc.—because they are making money. They ignore the facts that the United States was recovering from the Great Recession long before Trump took office, and that stock markets around the world are doing better than ours.
We must restore our system of checks and balances. Our conservative Congress has been derelict in its duty to check our apparently unbalanced president. We need a more mature president than one who claims, “My button is bigger than your button,” and “I am a very stable genius.”
Now it is the conservative swamp that needs to be drained. We can do it in November.
