Grassley

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Charles Grassley of Iowa weighed in Helsinki this week at which President Trump said there was no Russian meddling in American elections.

“The indictment from the Special Counsel’s office includes allegations that Russian military officials were involved in an attempt to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential election through cybersecurity hacking. U.S. intelligence officials continue to confirm that no vote tallies were changed as a result. Nevertheless, these are serious charges that strike at the core of our democracy, and the individuals who were indicted need to face the allegations being levied against them. President Trump missed an opportunity to publicly press President Putin on whether he would agree to extradite the defendants to the United States to answer the allegations in court. It should always be the goal of U.S. presidents to improve relations with other countries, especially ones as large and strategically important as Russia. It’s also important for our leaders to be clear-eyed in their approach. Vladimir Putin isn’t a friend to the United States, to the Western world or our values.” – Sen. Chuck Grassley

    Chuck doesn’t lie. We need to hear more on what Senator Joni Ernst has to say too. I recall when Putin came and stayed at George Bush Sr. private residence in Kennebunkport, Maine. Lobster summit they called it on account they thought they were mobsters. Please.. we all know without a big bad guy like Russia are defense spending would be minuscule. This guy Putin has always been chumming with our top leaders. As President Eisenhower once said on national TV that we need to watch out for the MILITARY INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX as they will cause the most problems in our free society. International Bankers are the real crooks in our world. This is exactly what the president is up against. I would much rather ogly over how hot Senator Joni Ernst is.

    Grassley is now a RINO.
    The only true Republicans and patriots are those of us that support President Trump, the greatest President in US history.

          I don’t believe anyone is attempting to blame Trump for the Russian election interference in 2016. Rather, patriots are asking if Trump was aware of the election interference (he was) and if he colluded with Russia concerning the interference (still an open question). It is particularly concerning that our President is openly hostile to the historic allies of the United States, but acts as a supplicant to one of the free world’s biggest threats.

          Really wish that whenever Trump supporters step up to the plate they would stop with the “what about her emails? but Obama was President” nonsense. That is not a rational argument but simply a deflection.

            The truth is never a deflection, but it does show responsibility for the current situation.

      You are now officially a WACKO one of a few million people who believe that Donald Trump is the Messiah. He is, however, the most treasonous president we have ever had in that office.
