Resign or Recuse?
When in doubt, ask more questions!
After the past 24 hours, the one emotion that is permeating the country, particularly among Progressives, is doubt…
- doubt about the handling of the overt intrusion into our country’s political process by Russia.
- doubt about the participation by members of the Trump Campaign Team before, and Trump Administration after the elections and the inauguration,
- doubt about who is truly concerned and engaged in investigating, resolving, prosecuting, and sanctioning the players involved.
I found it interesting that this all broke suddenly last evening during MSNBC’s special programming on Trump and Russia. The programming was in the schedule and I am sure that the articles in the Washington Post, the New York Times, and the New Yorker were already in the works. When I finally turned off the TV, the analysis was still going strong and had spread to the other networks. When I got up this morning, the responses were coming in fast and furious from both sides of the aisle. Even some Republicans were urging Sessions to recuse himself, while Democrats, for the most part, for calling for resignation.
Hmmmm… I guess that means that if you get purportedly caught lying to a Congressional committee, you can just say you must have misunderstood me or I didn’t understand the scope of your question. This is very unlike then Senator Sessions who said the then President Clinton should be prosecuted for Perjury before Congress for his lies about his White House dalliances. Same kettle, same pot, both black.
The American Public needs to demand a full, independent investigation of this. Yes, I lived through Watergate. I feel that this is getting even worse than Watergate. At this point, there is no doubt in my mind.
