There is irrefutable proof that not only did Russia interfere in our 2016 election, it did assist in altering the results. Efforts by Vladimir Putin’s agents on social media resulted in a lower than expected voter turnout and a victory in the Electoral College for Donald John Trump. Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin were the difference. Less than 80,000 votes between these three states gave Trump the EC, although Hillary crushed Donny Boy in the popular vote, making this the closest election in American history, and another not decided by the people.
Patrick Philbin is one of Trump’s attorneys, more accurately one of his paid liars.
“If there is credible information of wrongdoing by someone who is running for a public office, it’s not campaign interference for credible information about wrongdoing to be brought to light,” Philbin said. What he’s saying is that “all’s fair;” legal or not.
Congress has limited the ways foreigners can take part in elections — by forbidding them from voting and restricting their contributions — but the idea that simply because “information” originates overseas is a “non sequitur,” Philbin said.
So, it’s all right for any foreign nation to interfere in our elections; the most important right guaranteed by our founding fathers in the Bill of Rights. I don’t think so. It’s a sad enough situation that Citizens United allows corporations to be considered ‘people’ and use their enormous sums of money to change the results of elections. To allow a foreign nation to decide the results is unbelievable and another step by Trump and his circle of sinners to remake our nation into a fascist state.
Democratic Senator Mark Warren of Virginia was “flabbergasted” by Philbin’s claim.
“The president’s counsel … gave a green light for that kind of behavior to continue,” Warner said. “I hope and pray that cooler heads will prevail, but I think there was a dramatic step backwards in terms of protecting the integrity of our election.”
Remember, at one of Trump’s hate rallies in 2016 he openly begged for Russia’s assistance in the November election. He has done it again believing that he is above the law; that he is a monarch who makes the laws and is not subject to them.
If Trump is acquitted by the Trump Party this will signal the end of America and the end of the Constitution; the rule of law. He is a traitor by modern day definition and should be tried and sentenced to death. He is not unfit to be our nation’s president, he is unfit to be called an American.
