Trump Blasts 'Da Nang Dick' Blumenthal After Senator Talks Mueller Bill and Don Jr's Testimony...


Trump Blasts ‘Da Nang Dick’ Blumenthal After Senator Talks Mueller Bill and Don Jr’s Testimony on MSNBC

by Josh Feldman | Jan 28th, 2019, 10:39 pm

Senator Richard Blumenthal (D- CT) is working with Senator Chuck Grassley (R- IA) to push a Special Counsel Transparency Act to ensure that any the work of special counsel, including Robert Mueller, would be “made available to both Congress and the public.”

Blumenthal joined Rachel Maddow tonight to talk about it and he started off by praising Grassley for his commitment to transparency.

But after talking about the bill, Maddow brought up the issue of people lying to Congress––given the indictment against Roger Stone––and asked, “Can you tell us if other Judiciary Committee witnesses have had their testimony sent over to Mueller, sent to the special counsel’s office as yet?” Blumenthal said this in response

“Very simply, Rachel, I’m barred from saying whether any testimony has been conveyed to the special counsel, but I can tell you this much. I was in the room when a great many of these witnesses appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee behind closed doors. I think many of them should be called back to testify in public and I hope that will be true of other congressional committees as well, because behind closed doors, there arose––in my mind very clearly––questions, serious issues concerning their truthfulness and that issue pertained particularly to Donald Trump Jr. in a number of his contentions before our committee. So I think this common thread of lying to Congress and particularly to congressional committees may ensnare a number of other potential targets in the special counsel’s investigation and become a matter of criminal action.”


After Blumenthal’s MSNBC appearance, Trump blasted him on Twitter, invoking the nickname he came up with the Connecticut senator in reference to when, on the 2010 campaign trail, Blumenthal was busted for saying he served “in Vietnam” when he did not:

1. How does a Dumbass who defrauded the country on his draft status serve in it's highest office?

 

Deferments for fake bone spurs, only to later claim that his sexually transmitted diseases were his battle. An embarrassment to the World!

3. the story on Blumenthal

Blumenthal has been in public service at the state or national level since the mid 1970s - a good 45 years now, or over 16,000 days.

Over the course of his public career, he has given thousands of speeches to veterans groups, veteran's affiliated organizations and various town and state organizations.

He was in the Marine Corps reserves during Vietnam.

In almost every speech he said he was in the Marine Corps reserves. A handful of times, he did not. Big deal - he forgot a few words, but the other 99.95% of the time, he was fine. Should we judge Trump about the times he his misspoken or misspelled something on Twitter?
