Presumptive Progressive-Democratic Party primary candidate for President in 2020 Congressman Eric Swalwell (D, CA) (who already has touted the use of the government’s nuclear weapons against any who disagree with his wish to limit our ability to keep and bear arms) is a core example. The question, he says,
has “shifted” from “whether the president is working with the Russians” to “what evidence exists that the president is not working with the Russians?”
Because guilty on proof by Swalwell’s say-so.
I think that an unwillingness to sit down with the special counsel demonstrates a continued effort to obstruct and delay the inevitable[.]
Because no man—not even a President—has an obligation to cooperate with an investigation of that man. Oh, wait—yes, he does; Swalwell says so.
“now we know” the notes from the 2018 summit in Helsinki have been “effectively destroyed” by the president.
Because a newspaper said so.
If Donald Trump took them, as the Washington Post story states, then they’re effectively in the hands of the subject and, you know, I don’t trust Donald Trump to turn them over. We actually know in the past that he’s known to just rip up important pieces of paper and destroy them—notes that are important for presidential records. There’s been reporting on that. So, I see it as we have no way of obtaining the physical evidence now other than getting it from Donald Trump, someone who’s been wholly uncooperative.
It’s been reported. What more proof is needed? Well, here’s more: Swalwell doesn’t trust the President. There it is. Never mind that not even in that newspaper evidentiary story was there a claim that Trump had destroyed anything.
Can our nation—already harried by the identity politics and divisiveness of the Progressive-Democratic Party—afford such irrationality in the White House?
