Blinded by disinformation

Thank you, Rep. McMorris-Rogers for clarifying your position on Trump and Ukraine, as reported in the S-R on Nov. 24. In repeating common talking points, you agree with the claim there is nothing wrong with elected officials trying to use the power of their office to benefit themselves personally.

How do you justify continued support of this president? Trump consistently undermines our own intelligence and military efforts. He supports Putin’s lies about the 2016 election, and helps Putin achieve Russian goals in the Middle East and elsewhere. Now, the president and others confirm that he violated the Foreign Emoluments provision of the Constitution, but he claims he did nothing wrong. Does anything matter anymore?

Trump’s disinformation campaign has blinded much of the electorate. God help us if you and other elected officials don’t do the right thing.
