Trump criticism dominates Chuck Grassley town meeting in rural Iowa

Source: Des Moines Register

LOGAN, Ia. ó U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley faced relentless questioning about President Donald Trumpís fitness for office and his own handling of the investigation into Russian election meddling at a rural town meeting here Friday morning.

Amid a smattering of questions about trucking regulations, homeopathic medicine and pension security, a steady stream of attendees pressed Grassley to defend his handling of the ongoing Russia investigation and to offer his views on Trumpís conduct on the job.

ďAre you not personally concerned about his fitness to serve? If not, why not? Because Iím very concerned,Ē Mary Mikels, a retired 67-year-old from nearby Portsmouth, asked Grassley.

Grassley deflected that question, saying he wasnít qualified to make a psychiatric assessment, but Mikels persisted.

6. GOOD! I hope every single damn republican gets a similar earful..

It is the only way to shake loose the repubs without rubles. The ones WITH rubles are a lost cause.

......................................

The senior senator tried to deflect and say that he isnít qualified to diagnose anyone.

ďHe gets on Twitter and says the last thing that Fox News told him to say,Ē Mikels continued. ďThatís not presidential. Itís concerning. Are you personally concerned?Ē

Grassley said that he has his own job to worry about.


ďI have a job to do,Ē Grassley told her. ďIím not president of the United States. Iím a check on the president of the United States. Thatís my constitutional responsibility. Iím going to do what I can under our Constitution to make sure that nothing bad happens to our country.Ē

The rural town hall was the first in his tour of all 99 counties. Approximately 50 people attended from a population of about 1,500 people. The area has Democratic voters vastly outnumbered by Republicans two-to-one and Trump carried the county by 65 percent.

13. LIAR! LIAR! LIAR!

Grassely,
You said on live town hall video last AUG 28th that was shown on Rachel MSNBC that YOU would have "no problem" releasing the Simpson Fusion GPS 10 hour testimony to the public. FUCK YOU! Since then you have made lies/excuses for not releasing them (same with your fellow liar Hatch). YOU ARE OBSTRUCTING JUSTICE! Your committee is partisan and you have flipped. WHY? BLACKMAIL? Why did Feinstein have to release the testimony herself YOU ARE FIRED! You are a GOP ass kissing crook along with the rest of your greedy, complicit party. Your committee is a fraud now. There is NO JUSTICE as long as the GOP is in control. You are a traitor...rot in hell!
