So I was called a Republican

because I started a ridiculous thread suggesting that if Trump lost the election he would not step down.

Every day I see how Trump acts just like a dictator and no one can stop him. I f no one stops what he is doing now what makes anyone believe that he can be stopped in November?

Rudy Giuliani and Bill Barr are still digging up dirt on Biden in Ukraine. Russia hacked Burisma and a Senate committee has received from the Treasury department, financial information from Hunter Biden.

"For months, while the impeachment controversy raged, powerful committee chairmen in the Republican-controlled Senate have been quietly but openly pursuing an inquiry into Hunter Biden’s business affairs and Ukrainian officials’ alleged interventions in the 2016 election, the same matters that President Trump and his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani unsuccessfully tried to coerce Ukraine’s government to investigate. "

"Unlike Trump and Giuliani, however, Sens. Charles Grassley, chairman of the Finance Committee; Ron Johnson, chairman of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee; and Lindsey Graham, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, have focused their efforts in Washington, seeking to extract politically useful information from agencies of the U.S. government. They’ve issued letters requesting records from Cabinet departments and agencies, including the State Department, the Treasury, the Justice Department, the FBI, the National Archives and the Secret Service. "

"Grassley and Johnson have sought to obtain some of the most sensitive and closely held documents in all of federal law enforcement — highly confidential suspicious activity reports (SARs) filed by financial institutions with FinCEN, an agency of the Treasury that helps to police money laundering. "

"The senators’ requests to the Treasury have borne fruit, according to the ranking Democratic senator on the Finance Committee, Ron Wyden of Oregon, who contrasted the cooperation given to the Republican senators with the pervasive White House-directed stonewall that House Democrats encountered when they subpoenaed documents and witnesses in the impeachment inquiry. "

“Applying a blatant double standard, Trump administration agencies like the Treasury Department are rapidly complying with Senate Republican requests — no subpoenas necessary — and producing ‘evidence’ of questionable origin,” Wyden spokesperson Ashley Schapitl said in a statement. “The administration told House Democrats to go pound sand when their oversight authority was mandatory while voluntarily cooperating with the Senate Republicans’ sideshow at lightning speed.”...........................................

In other words, Grassley and Johnson and Republicans are doing what Rudy and Trump and Pompeo, et all. failed to do.

1. Calling you that would be against DU rules.

I assume a jury had the post hidden?

3. Are democrats on these committees allowed to see the documents?

Or will it be like any other time and it will be for republican eyes only?

6. Link to the post calling you a "Republican". I was on a jury earlier that adjudicated a response to

you OP regarding trump not stepping down if he lost. If that’s the post you’re referring to, you were not called a “Republican”.

7. I guess you are correct,

it was said I MUST not be a real Democrat, that I was only there to cause trouble. I guess I could have been a troll or a Russian or an Independent?

My point in the post was just repeated by John Heillman on Nicolle Wallace, he said that Democrats are fighting by the old rules and Trump and his cult have no rules or laws they follow.

I am sincerely worried about losing our democracy and I feel disheartened that others don't share my feeling of alarm.

10. I don't share you feelings of alarm because it just ain't going to happen.

The Mango Menace will leave the WH willingly or unwillingly on Jan. 20, 2021 when the new President is sworn in.
