Sometimes, the truth hurts.

Like it or not, if we continue down this road of giving conman more and more chances to comply with the House's oversight requests, we look weak. While we meet "in a few days" to develop our next strategy of asking again (and again), meanwhile trump is winning. The deplorables are cheering and we are wringing our hands.


Just a few examples of trump's (life long) strategy, in case you might have forgotten:

Opposed testimony by current and former staffers

Filed a lawsuit against the House Oversight and Reform Committee over his tax returns

Refused to respond to congressional requests to Treasury

Refused to permit former White House Counsel Don McGahn to testify

Refused to respond to congressional subpoenas in 2020 census investigation

Ordered former staffers not to testify in the security clearance investigation

Sued to stop Congress from subpoenaing his bank records

FGS, please at the very least form a Special Committee to Investigate trump as they did with Nixon- the Select Committee on Presidential Campaign Activities.

p.s.
...and please don't accuse me , a lifelong passionate Democrat, of being disloyal just because I'm calling it as I see it. Those DUer's who have and will complain about this - have you ever had a loved one who disappointed you or made a bad decision? Did you still love them, support them, and attempt to help them make better choices?!?!
