Our delusional, emotionally unstable President-Elect Donald Trump seems to believe that he has Republicans on his side as he faces overwhelming scrutiny about his ties to Russia and Russia’s involvement in hacking efforts to shift the election in his favor.
However, as wrong-headed as they sincerely are, the Republican party does have a long track record of opposing Russia, and Trump is about to find out that he now faces severe opposition within his own ranks.
Numerous Republican members of Congress are alarmed about Trump’s Russian connection and are taking action about it. Stated Republican Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina about Trump’s denial that Russia interfered with the election, “There are 100 United States senators. I would say that 99 of us believe the Russians did this and we’re going to do something about it. … After this trip is over, we’re going to have the hearings and we’re going to put sanctions together that hit Putin as an individual and his inner circle for interfering in our election.” According to reports, members of Congress were already briefed about Russia’s hacking of the Democratic party, but were unable to act upon it because the information was so sensitive. Do you think Trump’s treasonous involvement with Russia will be his undoing?
