‘Disgusted’ former Bush DOJ official torches fellow Republicans for standing by Trump’s ‘horrendous behavior’

Published

on

Don Ayer, who served as deputy attorney general under President George H.W. Bush, absolutely tore into his fellow Republicans for continuing to stand by President Donald Trump and his lawless actions.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Ayer said he found it “inexplicable” that the GOP was continuing to back the president even as he has openly lobbied for foreign governments to investigate his political opponents.

“I am disgusted by the conduct of Republican senators who pose as reputable people, but shamelessly hide under rocks instead of calling out the president’s horrendous behavior as the gross misconduct that they know it to be,” he said.

Ayer went on to say that very few Republicans are actually defending Trump’s actions, but have instead decided to “put their heads down and don’t talk about it.”

Ayer was one of 16 prominent Republican attorneys this week who signed a letter outlining the conservative case for an impeachment inquiry against the president. Others who signed the letter include George Conway, the husband of Trump White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, and Stuart M. Gerson, an attorney who also served during the George H.W. Bush administration.

U.S. military is undergoing hasty withdrawal of nearly all of the 1,000, or so, U.S. troops to help stabilize northern Syria."

Published

A senior economic and trade advisor to President Donald Trump has been busted for making up a person he can quote in his books and to justify his policies.

A shocking expose in The Chronicle of Higher Education revealed that Peter Navarro invented the name "Ron Vara," an anagram for Navarro, to justify his own opinions in his books.

The so-called Ron Vara has strong opinions, fortune-cookie-style quotes and an elaborate back story as "a military veteran and Harvard-trained economist who made seven figures in the stock market by investing in companies that do well during international crises," the report said.
