Daily Kos: Sen. Schumer Calls Trump and Tillerson’s Bend to Moscow a ‘Grave Dereliction of Duty’

The following is an excellent article written by Jen Hayden on the Daily Kos website on July 7, 2017 titled “Sen. Schumer Calls Trump and Tillerson’s Bend to Moscow a ‘Grave Dereliction of Duty'” and I quote:

In a scorching statement, Sen. Chuck Schumer called the results of Trump’s meeting with Putin “unacceptable,” “disgraceful” and “grave dereliction of duty” after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson shrugged off Russian hacking evidence and said the issue will “remain unresolved.” No! It isn’t unresolved. Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is sounding the alarm that the Russians will be back for our 2018 elections and beyond.

Sen. Schumer isn’t holding back any punches:

“President Trump had an obligation to bring up Russia’s interference in our election with Putin, but he has an equal obligation to take the word of our Intelligence Community rather than that of the Russian President. For Secretary Tillerson to say that this issue will remain unresolved is disgraceful—— To give equal credence to the findings of the American Intelligence Community and the assertion by Mr. Putin is a grave dereliction of duty and will only encourage Russia to further interfere in our elections in the future.

Working to compromise the integrity of our election process cannot and should not be an area where “agree to disagree” is an acceptable conclusion. Congress and Americans of al political persuasions and parties should do all they can to increase sanctions on Russia and prevent the reduction of sanctions by the executive branch.”

About tim074

I'm a retired dairy farmer that was a member of the National Farmer's Organization (NFO). Before going farming, I spent 4 years in the United States Air Force where I saved up enough money to get my down payment to go farming. I also enjoy writing and reading biographies and I write about myself as well as articles and excerpts I find interesting. I'm specifically interested in finances, particularly in the banking industry because if it wasn't for help from my local Community Bank, I never could have started farming which I was successful at. So, I'm real interested in the Small Business Administration and I know they are the ones creating jobs. I have been a member of Common Cause and am now a member of Public Citizen as well as AARP. I have, in the past, written over 150 articles on the Obama Blog (my.barackobama.com) and I'd like to tie these two sites together. I'm also on Twitter, MySpace and Facebook and find these outlets terrifically interesting particularly what many of these people did concerning the uprising in the Arab world. I believe this is a smaller world than we think it is and my goal is to try to bring people together to live in peace because management needs labor like labor needs management. Up to now, that hasn't been so easy to find.
