Is it time to be afraid

Far be it for me, a British citizen, to lecture Americans on democratic failings in light of Britain shooting itself in the foot  in political and economic suicide.

But here goes anyways.

Let’s see what has happened. And remember the impeachment: that whole checks and balances process whereby the most powerful man in the world manipulated another state to further his own political agenda through international bribery, and then have his own political party, scared of him, to stack the dice, refuse to entertain witnesses, so on and so forth. That whole thing should be enough to make you all as worried as hell.

Susan Collins and Lemar Alexander came out and basically said, “He did bad but he’ll learn from this.” Except, he hasn’t. Indeed, Guiliani is still in Ukraine and is still digging dirt to give to the DOJ.

Roger Stone, who lied under oath to Congress on Trump’s behalf, has been sentenced to 7 to 9 years in prison. This was following statutory guidelines for this type of felony – the US Sentencing Commission guidelines. The whole Roger Stone case should, of course, be another nail in Trump’s political coffin. But the guy is covered in Teflon and Kevlar. Things don’t stick. Things bounce harmlessly off him.

 

The DOJ has now come out to argue Stone should get much less prison time. You know, because Trump tweeted. He claimed he had “the absolute right” to tell the DOJ what to do. He claimed that Roger Stone and others getting such sentences were an “abberition” [sic], a “disgrace”, and that the people really committing “major crimes” are “getting away with it”. He is a guy who extorted a major foreign nation to cheat in a domestic election and then orchestrated a cover-up to protect himself before being acquitted – getting away with it.

It was an allegation that was not found to be true. There never was any direct evidence. We have a justice system for a reason just as we have a process to recall public officials for a reason and leftist conspiracies are not part of that process. 

 

Do you actually think this is the first time this has happened? LOL

I have no problem with Stone getting less of a sentence after learning that he was rolled up with a process crime during an illegal investigation. 
 

Those who lied in an attempt to undo an election are the threat.
