Donald Trump, Seth Rich And The Gangster Culture That Permeates Washington
Donald Trump, Seth Rich And The Gangster Culture That Permeates Washington by Michael Snyder – End of the American Dream
Politics has become a very dirty game in America, and if you don’t know how to play the game, the game is going to play you. Donald Trump and Seth Rich are both victims of this cold, hard reality, and hopefully what has happened to them will help the American people understand what is really going on in Washington. Contrary to what many may believe, politics is not an easy road to fame, wealth and glory. For every Obama or Clinton that makes it big, there are thousands of others that have had their careers shattered, their reputations ruined and their futures destroyed by the game. And those such as Seth Rich that cross the wrong people at the wrong time end up dead.
This is why it is so rare for good people to get into politics these days. From a purely selfish standpoint, it just isn’t worth it.
Trump has even admitted that he thought that being president would be easier. I don’t think that he realized that the world of Washington politics is such a minefield. One wrong move and a president can be toast.
And it would be bad enough if it was just the Democrats that were determined to take him down. Unfortunately, there are Republicans such as Senator John McCain that are quite eager to jump on any new Trump scandal. Just look at how quick he was to talk to the press about this latest one. The following comes from the Hill…
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday that allegations President Trump shared highly classified information with top Russian officials are “deeply disturbing,” becoming the latest GOP lawmaker to raise concerns over the meeting.
“The reports that the President shared sensitive intelligence with Russian officials are deeply disturbing,” McCain said in a statement.
There are a lot of other top Republicans other than McCain that hate Trump as well, and so Trump better hope that he is never facing impeachment because a lot of them would absolutely jump at the opportunity to take him down for good.
And speaking of impeachment, a number of Democrats are starting to mention that word even though Trump has done nothing wrong…
“It is a looming constitutional crisis because it involves a potential confrontation as did Watergate between the president and other branches of government,” Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said last week, after Trump fired Comey. “It may well produce impeachment proceedings.”
“On the issue of impeachment, I am doing my homework,” Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) said at a town hall event in April. “I will just say I understand the calls for impeachment, but what I am being cautious about and what I give you food for thought about is that if President Trump is impeached, the problems don’t go away, because then you have a Vice President Pence who becomes President Pence.”
“We’re actually pretty close to considering impeachment,” Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) told a Kentucky television station on Thursday.
We desperately need to get Trump some friends in Congress, but so far there has been very little enthusiasm for a pro-Trump movement in 2018.
