Dear Senator Toomey:
“I hope you can let this go.” When the President says this to the FBI Director, it is obstruction of Justice. The Republican Party now stands for principles that are utterly antithetical to Democracy: bald-faced lying (Sessions); intolerance (the President, Sessions); undermining the Constitution (McConnell); voting rights manipulation (the entire Party); the ends justify the means (the entire Party); obtaining advantage for the rich at the expense of the poor (the entire Party); now, no surprise, obstruction of Justice.
Where will it end?
When will you show some moral fiber and individual courage?
