Article II, Section 1 of the Constitution gives the oath or affirmation every president must take upon taking office. This oath is also given to our congress men and women. It says they will preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Some time back, congress voted for sanctions against Russia for interfering in our election. The vote was almost unanimous; yet to this day President Trump has refused to impose those sanctions.
Not only that, he has refused to even criticize Vladimir Putin and the Russians for this attempted destruction of our free elections. But then Putin is virtually the only world leader Trump has not insulted and/or criticized. Is there a reason for this?
Not only that, but the heads of the FBI and NSA have both testified that Trump has not authorized them to take action to prevent future attacks on our voting rights.
Never miss a local story.
Now we watch as Putin shows a video of Russia’s new indefensible missile, and in that video it is aimed at Florida. What has the Commander in Chief done or said about this overt threat? The same as he has said about the attack on our elections, nothing. Why?
