I’m the daughter of a World War II Navy veteran. I am the daughter in law of a Korean War veteran. I am the mother of an Iraq War veteran. My sister, both brothers and husband are all Vietnam-era veterans.
I am both disturbed and disappointed that the Leader of the US Senate, Mitch McConnell has lied. He didn’t “skirt the truth,” or “fib.” No, he LIED.
He claimed that Mr. Trump and his staff were not allowed to participate in the House Impeachment Hearings. That is patently FALSE! We citizens have heard it on the radio, television and read in hundreds of published articles where Rep Schiff, Speaker Pelosi, and other members of the House leadership INVITED and ASKED Mr. Trump to participate, to invite and allow his staff to participate in the House Impeachment Hearings. AND THEY ALL REFUSED.
How is the leader of the US Senate allowed to LIE and not be called out for it? My family has not spent decades serving this country in uniform so that a politician could turn a very serious and necessary trial into a sham!
If our two senators fail to stop this sham and require witnesses and evidence to be presented, then they are allowing ALL future presidents — Democrat or Republican — to seek outside interference from foreign countries in all our future elections. Is that the America you wish to live in and serve?
