This president’s struggle to maintain the current status of his administration which is under constant attack from the Democrats for more information about his contacts with leader of Russia after becoming president. Thirty-seven is the number of people who are now under investigation or on their way to prison for involvement with this man is testimony to the power of corruption in Washington politics and those who are elected to serve the American people. The desire for more power in the Oval Office is nothing new here. In the early 1900’s barely contained by the constitutional limits of his executive powers, Teddy Roosevelt boasted he “caused to be done many things not previously done by the President,” This president’s call for a national emergency to get around Congress to obtain funds for his border wall is just a modern version of that attitude.
It seems that history does at some point does repeat itself when it come to the mind of man. The stories about Ivanka using her status to promote her private business’s while doing government work, and her husband Jared using an Instagram app to conduct Government work is another point to worry about when we think about those in power in the White House. No collusion with the Russians is the mantra from the president from day one of the Mueller investigation, the talking points will continue from all concerned until the truth comes out or is buried by litigation in the courts.
