A letter I wrote to my government
representatives in Washington, DC; Jared Polis, Cory Booker and Michael F.
'As your constituent, I strongly recommend an article you should read and then
act upon; David Corn's article of exasperation re: the Russian hacking and
interference in US elections - in 2016 and on-going by the Congressional
testimony of the NSA, CIA and other various US intel agencies.
Mr Corn's concerns are bolstered and
verified by all the intelligence apparatus of the USA. Yet POTUS dismisses all
of it as sheer fabrication without any substantive evidence to back his preposterous
In the mean time, Mr Trump goes to
NATO - our closest, most trusted allies - and rails nonsense about energy
dependency and chastises member states for 'delinquency' as if he were a
slum-lord in Queens again.
Then, after spitting in the communal
well, he goes off to Helsinki for a secret meeting with the former KGB general
and ruthless despot of the Russian Federation, of whom he has said "Putin
is fine. He’s fine. We’re all fine. We’re people.” As if that makes a lick of
sense at all.
Pol Pot, Sukarno, Idi Amin, Papa Doc Duvalier; they were all 'people'. they
were most demonstrably not 'fine' people, no more than the alt/right fascists

Act to defend our Republic, our
fragile democracy, from enemies both foreign and domestic. One such enemy of
our system of government is Vladimir Putin. Another now resides at 1600
Pennsylvania Avenue. Trump is acting as an agent of a hostile, contentious
foreign power - sowing discord and disunion amongst our staunchest, most
trusted and proven allies; Great Britain, France, Canada, and so on. Trump's
campaign to deconstruct the NATO alliance and cozy up to the dictators of North
Korea and the Russian Federation must be thwarted.
Protect the Mueller investigation.
Move to impeach the president.'
