The latest insane action taken by Donald Trump crosses so many lines, it’s just unbelievable! He has revoked the security clearance of John Brennan, the former director of the CIA. He did this not because of any illegality or threat to national security, but only because Brennan has been a frequent critic of the President. Responding to the revocation of his security clearance, Brennan wrote that this attempt to suppress freedom of speech “should gravely worry all Americans, including intelligence professionals, about the cost of speaking out.”
And speaking of speaking out, have you noticed the silence of Republicans all through each and every embarrassing action that Trump takes? John McCain, Jeff Flake, Bob Corker, and sometimes Susan Collins seem to be the only Republican Senators who call out the President for his misdeeds. Every other Republican Senator or candidate who is running for a Senate seat in the Mid-Term Election on November 6th has said nothing. By not speaking out, these Republicans enable the President and everything he does. Democrats must point out that the inaction of these Republican is harmful to our country. Democrats must point out that by supporting Trump, they are not worthy of being elected or re-elected to the Senate.
So, the time has come again for all of us to make a contribution to the campaigns of the Democrats in tough races for the Senate, starting with our own Bill Nelson, right here in Florida: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/nelson_search?refcode=ads_google_fl_search Think about all of the harm to the Federal Judiciary we can help prevent if the Democrats can retake the Senate!
