Michael Moore: ‘Cease all congressional business’ until Trump’s ‘potentially traitorous actions’ probed

Published

on

Filmmaker Michael Moore urged his Facebook followers to demand an investigation into President Donald Trump’s “potentially traitorous” ties to Russia.

House Republicans have shown little interest in fully probing claims by intelligence agencies that the Kremlin attempted to influence the election in favor of Trump, although key Senate Republicans have called for an examination of former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s links to Russia.

Moore urged his fans to call on lawmakers — especially Democrats — to “cease all Congressional business” until a select committee was established to investigate the links between the Trump campaign and Russian intelligence officials, and to call on Attorney General Jeff Sessions to appoint a special prosecutor.

“The Dems must bring a halt to anything happening on the floor of the Senate or House until this is done,” Moore said. “To carry on as if this potentially traitorous action never happened, to just go about ‘business as usual’ today, is an OBSCENITY.”

He said the claims about Russian meddling, if true, violated the most basic rights of Americans to a free, fair and incorruptible election.

“If we are not willing to fight for THIS, then WHO ARE WE?” Moore said. “If our Democratic representatives are too spineless to shut this charade down, theN they must be put on notice TODAY that we will primary them in 2018 with REAL progressive fighters who are true Democrats.”

Moore shared the number for the Capitol switchboard, which can be reached at either 202-225-3121 or 202-224-3121.

‘Trump people lie — we know that’: Ex-House GOP staffer shreds Democrats for letting Lewandowski off the hook

Published

on

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski denounced President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as "rude" and "insolent" -- but her fellow "Morning Joe" panelists ripped House Democrats for letting him off the hook with obstructing their investigation.

Lewandowski turned the House Judiciary Committee hearing into a "circus," Brzezinski said, and panelists agreed he unlawfully claimed executive privilege, and a former Republican House staffer said he should have been charged with contempt of Congress.

"He was a mini Trump," Brzezinski said. "You can speak to Corey Lewandowski in real life, and often you can see someone who doesn't seem like Trump. In front of the cameras, he was playing for an audience of one. He was rude, he was insolent, he was stonewalling and, ultimately, being revealed to be a liar after being shown that he went on a national TV show, Ari Melber, it's not like a camera was shoved in his face, and he chose to lie to the American people."
