VOICES--This week, President Trump’s campaign manager, Paul Manafort, was found guilty on 8 counts of tax evasion and bank fraud.
On the same day, Trump’s personal lawyer and former “fixer,” Michael Cohen, pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax fraud, and bank fraud charges, while saying in court that he broke the campaign finance laws at the direction of Donald Trump.
Let’s pause for a second and take this all in:
Trump campaign chairman: Guilty
Trump personal attorney: Guilty
Trump deputy campaign chairman: Guilty
Trump National Security Advisor: Guilty
Trump foreign policy advisor: Guilty
Some witch hunt, huh?
Despite numerous guilty verdicts from his inner circle, President Trump continues to attack the Special Counsel’s investigation and is claiming that he is "totally allowed" to be involved in this investigation and could even "run it."
That should set off a whole new set of alarms. This president thinks he is above the law and should be his own prosecutor, judge, and jury. We need to take a stand and demand Congress do everything in its power to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller now, before it’s too late.
Thank you for fighting alongside me.
