The Day After Election Day
- says Ron Johnson has repeatedly tried to push the FBI into political service on Trump's behalf, including getting dirt on the Bidens before the election.
The F.B.I. has been under siege since this past summer, according to a senior official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. “The White House is using friendly members of Congress to try to get at certain information under the guise of quote-unquote, oversight, but really to get politically helpful information before the election,” the official said. “They want some sort of confirmation that we’ve opened an investigation,” for example, into Hunter Biden, “which, again, the F.B.I. doesn’t confirm or deny whether it’s opened investigations.”
Ron Johnson, serving Trump, intensifies the corruption of a Senate Committee
- as I'd noted six weeks ago -
With GOP Majority Leader McConnell's blessing, Wisconsin's leading taxpayer-paid wastrel has ginned up the dirtiest of last-ditch distractions to save Trump's death-infested and dying presidency.
The Wisconsin Senator who voted against the issuance of all witness subpoenas during Trump's impeachment 'trial' and for the acquittal of a dangerously incompetent incumbent President has just engineered as chair of the Homeland Security Committee within weeks of the 2020 election the subpoena of dozens of Obama administration officials to aid Trump's re-election and further enable Trump's above-the-law-below-the-belt behaviors.
- but the country and political reporters should enter it in Johnson's permanent record, since he's no longer committed to keeping an-oft reported 2016 pledge to call it quits after the end of his second term in 2022.
And as I noted in June:
As Trump continues to throw the country into repeated and dangerous, pre-election constitutional crises, it's worth revisiting Ron Johnson's blanket blasé excuse-making that kept Trump from being removed after his impeachment.
