Politicususa.com: Trump’s Twitter Rampage Backfires As Richard Blumenthal Doubles Down on Russia Investigation

The following is an excellent article written by Sean Colarossi on the Politicususa.com website on August 7, 2017 titled “Trump’s Twitter Rampage Backfires As Richard Blumenthal Doubles Down on Russia Investigation” and I quote:

“Trump’s Twitter Rampage Backfires As Richard Blumenthal Doubles Down On Russia Investigation”

Instead of taking Trump’s bait, Sen. Blumenthal is digging in his feet and doubling down on the increasingly serious investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia.

Trump’s Twitter Rampage Backfires As Richard Blumenthal Doubles Down On Russia Investigation

Despite Donald Trump’s childish and deeply personal attacks on Democratic Sen. Richard Blumenthal on Monday, the Connecticut senator refused to lose focus of the special counsel investigation into Trump’s campaign’s ties to Russia during last year’s election.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Sen. Blumenthal – a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee – said Trump’s Monday morning attacks will not distract him from the investigation.

Blumenthal said:

I won’t be distracted by these bullying tweets. If anything, they strengthen my resolve and determination to work for protecting the special counsel against exactly these tactics of bullying and intimidating, and that’s the reason that I have joined with two other Republicans and four of us Democrats in sponsoring bills that would protect the special counsel, require judicial review – a three-judge panel who would have to find good cause … before Donald Trump could fire Bob Mueller. And there are growing, ominous threats, tweets and warnings that we’ve seen – the world has seen – that we’re heading toward a collision between Bob Mueller and the President of the United States.

The Democratic senator’s renewed commitment to focusing on the Russia investigation and other key issues comes after Trump released several tweets on Monday targeting Blumenthal.

Tweets:

Despite Trump’s latest unhinged tantrum, Sen. Blumenthal is clearly not taking the president’s bait or stooping to his level. Instead, the Democrat is digging in his feet and doubling down on the ongoing and increasingly serious investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia – and he’s working with Republicans to protect Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation.

The more this president takes to Twitter to bully those running the investigation into his ties to Russia, the more guilty he looks and the more determined those investigating him become.”

(DEMOCRATIC SENATOR RICHARD BLUMENTHAL OF CONNECTICUT KNOWS THERE IS PLENTY OF EVIDENCE FOR SPECIAL PROSECUTOR, ROBERT MUELLER TO START AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE RUSSIA-TRUMP CONNECTION.  I HOPE IT STARTS SOON BECAUSE PRES TRUMP’S POPULARITY RATING KEEPS GOING DOWN SHOWING THAT THE VOTING PUBLIC IS GETTING DISGUSTED WITH HIS RIDICULOUS TWEETS, PARTICULARLY SINCE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP WENT BANKRUPT SIX TIMES BEFORE HE BECAME PRESIDENT AND EVEN BRAGGED ABOUT IT DURING THE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES WITH HILLARY CLINTON.  IT’S TOO BAD THAT RNC CHAIRMAN, REINCE PREIBUS DIDN’T CHECK OUT PRES TRUMP BEFORE THE ELECTION.

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.
