GOP Sen. Tom Cotton threatens to call cops on liberal constituents who keep writing him letters: report

Published

on

Sen. Tom Cotton’s (R-AR) office has started sending out warning letters to liberal activists who have bombarded the senator with phone calls and letters.

The Arkansas Times reports members of activist group Ozark Indivisible have been receiving cease-and-desist letters ordering them to stop trying to contact Cotton.

“This letter is immediate notification that all communication must cease and desist immediately with all offices of US Senator Tom Cotton,” the letter states. “All other contact will be deemed harassment and will be reported to the United States Capitol Police.”

One person who received the cease-and-desist letter tells the Arkansas Times that Cotton’s actions show that the senator does not have respect for any constituents who have differing views.

“I believe if Tom Cotton’s office were to respond as to why they sent this letter, I think they just honestly don’t want to listen to any citizen’s opposing view or hear the numerous grave concerns U.S. citizens have about the serious & ongoing attack on our Democracy,” the constituent writes.

Cotton’s office responded to say that it only sends out such letters in extreme circumstances.

“If an employee of Senator Cotton receives repeated communications that are harassing and vulgar, or any communication that contains a threat, our policy is to notify the U.S. Capitol Police’s Threat Assessment Section,” a spokesperson told THV 11.

Cotton staffer John Noonan writes on Twitter that one person who received the letter only did so because they called an intern a “c*nt” over the phone.

Published

on

Republican senators are making millions off of Trump’s tax cuts — and will repay him by betraying their oath.

It's long been obvious that Republican senators have little interest in serving as impartial jurors in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. While there is a raft of motivations for such historic perfidy — with several GOP senators politically benefiting from some of the same corrupting influences — one under-examined, non-Russian reason is personal greed.

‘Rattled’ White House was blindsided by Bolton revelations: report

Published

on

In an appearance on CNN's "New Day," on Monday morning, Axios reporter Jonathan Swan revealed that the Donald Trump's White House was "rattled" by revelations contained in former national security advisor John Bolton's upcoming book -- and that they appeared to be unaware of them until they read them in the New York Times.

Speaking with hosts Alisyn Camerota, and John Berman, Swan was asked how the White House was responding to the bombshell revelations that blow a huge hole in Trump's impeachment defense.

"The New York Times knew about the content of the Bolton book before you say the press shop at the White House did. What itself is the significance there?" host Berman asked.

Frantic Trump tries to block Senate from calling Bolton after bombshell book blows up his Ukraine defense

Published

on

President Donald Trump went to bed fretting about John Bolton, and he woke up worried about his former national security adviser.

Excerpts from Bolton's new book leaked Sunday, claiming that Trump told him that Ukraine aid was tied to an investigation of Joe Biden and his son -- putting new pressure on Republican senators to approve additional witness testimony in the impeachment trial.

"The Democrat controlled House never even asked John Bolton to testify," Trump tweeted Monday morning. "It is up to them, not up to the Senate!"

The Democrat controlled House never even asked John Bolton to testify. It is up to them, not up to the Senate!
