Senator Mike Lee
My initial assessment is that what Pres. Trump announced is legal. Whether or not it should be legal is a different matter. Congress has been ceding far too much power to the exec. branch for decades. We should use this moment as an opportunity to start taking that power back.
This Republican Party had the fix in for 2016. And they held up judicial appointments and everything else. They hamstrung President Obama, and they see what’s on the horizon in 2020. They are going to preemptively castrate the next president because they know they can’t win.
I’d be proud if I didn’t know they sold out to the Russians. This is shrewd political posturing.
Edit to add: I feel like I’m betraying my people when I say these things. Republicans almost always win in the trenches, doing the dirty work. But they betrayed the nation by including Russian aid in the “by any means” playbook. That’s too far for me. Never sleep with the enemy.
