Hey – I’d like this information to exposed as well.
Because I have no idea what the hell is going on.
Protesters are rallying Saturday in nearly 130 U.S. cities to call for what they consider the need for more thorough federal investigations into whether President Trump’s associates colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential elections.
The rallying in Washington on the National Mall is being held within blocks of a pro-Trump rally outside of the White House.
The sides reportedly clashed briefly at the pro-Trump “Pittsburgh Not Paris” rally but no major incidents so far have been reported.
“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump said Thursday in announcing that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, in which industrial nations have agreed to limit greenhouses gases. “It is time to put Youngstown, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania … before Paris, France.”
Organizers for the “March for Truth” rallies Saturday say their objective is to “let our elected leaders know that Americans want answers.”
We all want answers!
Let’s start with what evidence exists tying Russia to Wikileaks – then we can go from there.
That was the starting point of all of this, and the connection has not been established – at least I haven’t been made aware of it – so let’s see it!
And they suggest the nationwide rallies are not part of the so-called “resist” Trump efforts, saying, “The legitimacy of our democracy is more important than the interests of any party, or any president.”
However, they also say their primary goals include getting an independent commission established for the Russia investigations, keeping the public as informed as possible and getting Congress to demand that Trump release his tax returns.
There actually already is an “independent” commission, run by ex-FBI chief Robert Mueller. Not sure why these protesters are not aware of this.
Robert Mueller: The thinking man’s thinking man.
But on the point of keeping the public informed – I’m all for that as well!
And sponsors include such liberal-leaning groups as Swing Left, Progressive Democrats of America and the National Organization for Women.
“Eventually, you wake up with a knot in your gut about what the president might do or say,” John Lovett, who was a speechwriter for former President Barack Obama, said at the Washington, D.C., rally. “We can take back the White House.”
NOW President Terry O’Neill told protestors: “The Trump administration is going after immigrants, and we won’t stand for it. I am up against implacable efforts to stop women from having access to health care.”
Not sure what that has to do with the Russian conspiracy.
But at least we agree on the main point: the government needs to explain what the hell is going on with this “investigation” and release information to the public so that we can analyze it ourselves.
It’s great that the left and the right can agree on something so fundamental as this.
