As promised yesterday, here's Part II on American Traitors:
(Note: graphic via The Moderate Voice)
I left off talking about Trump mole Devin Nunes yesterday. Now it's time to take a closer look at some other GOP traitors in Congress.
Topping the list is Mitch McConnell who has known about the Trump campaigns suspicious activities months before Russia helped Trump over the top in the 2016 election.
The so-called Gang of 8 (4 Republicans and 4 Democrats) met with then FBI Director Andrew McCabe who told them about the intelligence agencies growing concerns.
Not one of them openly criticized the investigation. As a matter of fact McConnell has concealed that meeting as best as he could up until recently when the news about it came out.
From day one, McConnell chose to ignore the possible threat of a traitor in the White House and went out of his way to obstruct the investigations that followed.
McConnell cronies in the House, Mark Meadows, Jim Jordan, Devin Nunes (already featured in Part I) Matt Gaetz, Andy Biggs, and Kevin McCarthy, all chose to protect Trump despite the fact he had the stink of Putin on him.
Trumps current chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney (a Freedom caucus puppet) has done all he could to cover for Trump by lying to the press and working in tandem with the other traitors mentioned above.
Let's stop here for a moment.
The definition of traitor is someone who betrays a friend, country, or principal. Under United States Code 18 U.S.C. § 2381 is unambiguous:
"Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States."
By enabling Trump and holding bogus investigations to divert from Robert Mueller's legitimate investigation this group of GOP traitors chose Trump over country. It's that simple.
Senate members like Lindsey Graham have not only chosen to align themselves with traitors, he's planning on investigating the investigators - just like the ploy the House used when they had the majority.
Graham, Chuck Grassley, and their Senate cronies are picking the wrong side of the law because they are knowingly obstructing it with the power they have to further muddy Mueller's upcoming report.
Political observers are even speculating the public may never see Mueller's report. No one is sure how far the new AG, William Barr, will go to protect Trump.
The gaggle of traitors stretching from the White House to Congress is shocking, as each new day reveals more corruption and obstruction of justice.
