How we actually drain the swamp…

During the 2016 Trump presidential campaign, he talked about wanting fix Washington and the establishment, which hasn’t been working for the American people. He was going to “drain the swamp.”

The reality is that he’s done the exact opposite. Because of his political naïveté, every parasitic political opportunist has latched on with the hope it’ll help them maintain and further rise to power (i.e Paul Manafort as a prime example).

There is one part of DC that is “draining the swamp” and that’s the Justice System (including the investigation by special counsel Bob Mueller.)

Congressman Chris Coons has been recently indicted on charges of insider trading. He helped nominate Trump at the Republican convention. He just suspended his campaign for re-election, which I’m sure will reduce his chances of getting re-elected. That’s draining the swamp.

And the CIA Speaks Up…

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) isn’t really known for being an open and transparent organization.

When details of how the CIA knows that Russia interfered in the 2016 election show up in the New York Times, you know that the intelligence community is trying to send a message.

The evidence included texts and emails from Russian military officers and information gleaned from a top-secret source close to Mr. Putin, who had described to the C.I.A. how the Kremlin decided to execute its campaign of hacking and disinformation.

Incredible story. It’s worth a read.

We’re under attack by Russia

The Mueller investigation with the Justice Department indicted 12 Russians for hacking related to the 2016 election in the United States. The indictments went into incredible detail.

We NEED to take this seriously.

I was surprised that Donald Trump’s homeland security secretary even called this “a direct attack on our democracy.” Unfortunately, not many other voices have chimed in.

Russia wants to sow division in the United States and make us weaker in the process. They want to take our place as the most powerful country in the world.

Frankly, it seems like they’re making progress.
