Special Counsel Robert Mueller III and his “13 Angry Democrats” check on whether President Trump, or members of his presidential campaign, “conspired or knowingly coordinated” with Russia to win the 2016 presidential campaign, shows the world that America’s political system of checks and balances — balances!
Mueller and his team of lawyers interviewed 500 witnesses and issued 2,800 subpoenas. But notwithstanding the fact that many of them were Clinton supporters, they acted with integrity, abided by the rule of law, and reaffirmed the fundamental American constitutional ideals of justice, even in a highly inflammatory bipartisan political environment.
The political hardball game House of Representatives democrats — suffering “Trump derangement syndrome” — are now playing with the White House is not America’s Game or the political pastime Americans love or want to see. Neither is the hardball game Senate Republicans want to play by investigating the Obama Administration officials and Hillary Clinton presidential campaign on their role in the Steele Dossier that triggered the Russia investigation — not to mention the Clinton private server and missing e-mails.
It is time to move on. Time to stop partisan politicking to settle old grudges and start legislating policies that affect Americans “everyday” lives positively, rather than focusing and wasting more time and money on what is in the best interest of a party and the 2020 elections.
Americans want Congress to focus on substantive issues such as income inequality, immigration, jobs, climate change, the economy, health care, gun control, taxes and education — not partisan party politics.
Career politicians must start listening to the people and keep America balanced like the Founding Fathers intended. Militarily, economically and politically.
America will remain strong and grow economically only if D.C. elected representatives check and balance what they do, to ensure it is in the country’s best interest, not personal or their party’s. Country before party. America First.
Wishful thinking I know. Nothing has changed. Nevertheless, the hardball magnified partisan rift must be softened and shrunk — if America is to stay strong after the next recession and 2020 election.
