Congressional oath

“I, XXXX ZZZZZ, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

Where's the part about allowing two more years of nationwide damage until you can let "the people decide"??? You swore to defend the constitution. Trump has ignored and subverted the constitution and caused permanent damage to our reputation and our democracy. I remember the draft that sent my brother to Vietnam at the height of the conflict. He swore a similar oath. Was he allowed to delay by two years his entry to combat-No, you take the oath and you do your job. No excuses, no delays, no "let the voters decide". Do your fucking job and do it now or get out of congress.

Until I hear the EXACT same term used

to describe things said by republicans, and in particularly Trump, then fuck any democrat describing what Representative Omar said as "Vile Lies". If you haven't the balls and outrage to confront an enemy of this country then shut the fuck up about our new warriors.

You might remind the GOP apologists that the Democrats didn't schedule the Cohen hearing to coincide with the Korean summit. They rescheduled after Trump threatened Cohen's family and Cohen refuse his initial testimony date. That done they couldn't take a chance of losing the opportunity for a public hearing knowing that at any moment Trump might again release an illegal public threat to the witness. That Trump didn't like the optics he caused is just tough shit.
