My morning coffee brought instant inspiration (as it often does) with it today.
I clearly recalled the Trump rallies (from day one) that called for Hillary Clinton to be locked up for her supposed crimes.
"Lock her up! Lock her up!" the frenzied Trump supporters chanted mindlessly in 2016, 2017, and 2018 (they still may be doing it for all I know).
It's time for a new chant - but coming from the Democrats.
Trump has declared war on Congress and the Constitution by telling his minions not to appear when they get subpoenas from the House.
He even told his cronies to "flip off Congress," and to "...shit in their eyes."
The orange ape is so unhinged he's trying to sue the top Democratic in the House, Rep. Elijah Cummings, chair for the House Oversight Committee, to keep him from obtaining his tax returns and financial information.
The Democrats also requested "all communications with Stephen Miller," citing a Washington Post report and their concerns that "the president has sought to empower...Stephen Miller to "be in charge of handling all immigration an border affairs."
Defiant as ever, Deranged Don (thanks for the new nickname George Conway!) told Miller not to appear. Miller is gladly complying with his bosses order. Stay tuned, I sense another subpoena coming...
Back to my coffee-inspired inspiration.
It's time for Democrats to gather everywhere in the country and start chanting..."Lock him up! Lock him up!" (using the names mentioned in this post)
Starting with...Carl Kline (who overrode intelligence recommendations not to give Trump's daughter Ivanka, and her husband Jared top security clearances, and 23 other Trump minions). He's due to appear before the House Oversight Committee on May 1st.
We must not forget two other Trump puppets who have refused to appear despite getting subpoenas:
Treasury Secretary, Steve Mnuchin, and IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig.
Also summoned, but complying:
Attorney General, William Barr, whose expected to appear on May 2nd; and former White House counsel, Don McGahn, two weeks later... if Trump doesn't somehow stop him from appearing.
Last, but not least, there's Robert Mueller. The House has indicated it wants to talk with him, but no date has been set yet. There's some question about his response - whether he will comply, or not.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
