Lots of Republicans are upset because as many as 60 members of Congress (at last count) will be boycotting the inauguration of our illegitimate 45th president, Don ‘Grab ’em by the pussy’ Trump.
But as Maryland Congressman Elijah Cummings noted this morning, those who are staying away from Trump’s big celebration aren’t just doing so because they’re still pissed that Hillary Clinton lost:
“You’ve got to understand that members of Congress have a lot of information that the public does not have. And I can tell you over the last week or two, the classified briefings that I have been to, and if the public knew what members of Congress know.”
A few minutes later, Cummings added:
“It seems as if the Republicans are sort of letting President-elect Trump sort of just move forward with regard to the conflict of interest issues [and] this whole hacking issue. And I’m really concerned that we as Democrats have to push harder on Republicans to do something so that our standards are met and that he gets rid of these conflicts and he also deals with the hacking.”
I’m an optimist, and I firmly believe that eventually all of the nasty details about Trump’s Russia connection and his conflicts of interest will indeed be brought to the light of day and wind up sinking him. It won’t happen overnight, but it will if all of us stay focused and make sure to let our members of Congress know that we demand a full investigation, no matter what it reveals.
The resistance started the day after the election, and now it kicks into high gear. Donald Trump is not and never will be my president.
