Donald Trump must believe in that old-world idea that women are the personal property of their husbands. He showed that by blaming a long-time public servant for the actions of his wife. That has not been the only example of POTUS’ authoritarian world view. He has been eroding the pillars of this great democracy, and his attacks have worsened.
The president has assaulted the intelligence community, free press, the environment, and more. He threw his latest Twitter bomb at the Department of Justice (DOJ) employee, Bruce Ohr.
The former reality star has just blasted Ohr for being involved in the investigation into Russia’s attack on the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Trump blamed the government employee, because his wife worked for a company that helped compile the infamous Steele dossier.
The president’s many attempts to undermine Robert Mueller’s probe into Moscow and the Trump campaign’s possible conspiracy has thus far failed. He sent his minion and House Intelligence Committee chair, Rep. Devin Nunes, to misguide the representatives’ investigation.
Ironically, the former You’re Fired reality show host has been unable to fire anyone in the administration, including Ohr and Sessions. Instead, he has sent out others to do his dirty deeds. Fortunately, former senator Sessions has too many friends in the Senate to get the axe.
The man sitting in the Oval Office also had top members of the intelligence community fired. Most recently, he withdrew the former CIA director, John Brennan’s security clearance.
Trump threatened to pull other’s security clearances, including Ohr. That would effectively tie the DOJ employee’s hands from doing his job at all.
