Senate Minority Leader Schumer Condemns Trump’s Handling Of Hacking Talk With Putin, But He Is Opening A Pandora’s Box.
by Pamela Williams
Of course, there is no surprise in the immediate criticism coming from Schumer against Trump. This time is no different from the rest, but I want to include an open letter to Schumer from Charlie Daniels, saying Schumer is opening a Pandora’s Box he cannot close. Daniels expresses brilliantly what I deeply feel, I will include it a little later after the initial news of Schumer’s attack on President Trump.
Responding to statements from Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that President Donald Trump and President Vladimir Putin would like to move on from allegations that Russian interfered with the 2016 election, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) called the move “disgraceful.”
He said the President had a duty to press Putin about Russian hacking, but also an “equal obligation” to trust U.S. intelligence over the word of Russia’s president. How may I ask does Trump trust US Intelligence at this point? James Comey has admitted responsibility of being a major leaker, and he also was the ring leader in creating the fake Trump dossier. Is anyone listening?
Tillerson, who sat in on the meeting between Trump and Putin, said Trump opened up the meeting asking Putin about the election interference and eventually talked about how to move on from the issue because the two countries will never agree on what happened. This is true, and what is important is that Trump and Putin build a relationship that will withstand the grains of time.
But Schumer goes on to say, “Working to compromise the integrity of our election process cannot and should not be an area where ‘agree to disagree’ is an acceptable conclusion,” Schumer said. “Congress and Americans of all political persuasions and parties should do all they can to increase sanctions on Russia and prevent the reduction of any sanctions by the executive branch.”
Sen. Robert Warner (D-VA), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, put out a separate statement, saying the reports that the President pressed Putin on the election hacking would have had “much more force” if Trump hadn’t just questioned who was behind the attack and discredited U.S. intelligence in a speech the day before.
“While we proceed with our counterintelligence investigation, it is imperative that the Trump Administration refrain from any effort to relax or rescind the sanctions already in place. They also cannot seek to undermine congressional action toughening sanctions in response to Russia’s brazen assault on American democracy,” he said.
I am living in bewilderment at this point, and I am praying that somehow someway, the truth makes it to the surface of this investigation of no evidence of Trump and Russia collusion. However, Charlie Daniels expressed my feelings perfectly in an open letter to Chuck Schumer. But is the Deep State so in control now that evidence simply does not matter? I am afraid all that matters is what Deep State creates the narrative to be. The Deep State has their agenda, and no court of law or the truth can stop it. The following letter says it all. Thank you, Charlie Daniels.

An Open Letter to Senator Charles Schumer
Sen. Schumer, I don’t live in your constituency but in the larger picture, you live in mine and every other legal, taxpaying American citizen who is affected by the power you hold in your political party, your blind allegiance to it and the obstructionist posture to anything that doesn’t directly benefit it.
There’s something sinister about seeing you bent over the lectern in the Senate Chamber, your countenance resembling what I would imagine Edgar Allen Poe’s would look like reciting one of his macabre tales of doom and gloom, as if there is not one drop of happiness in your life, forecasting a dismal future for America if anything President Trump proposes passes both houses and becomes law.
I know you’re disappointed, I know you had the balloons ready to fall and the corks halfway out of the champagne bottles election night and I know you just can’t face the truth that what happened in the election was exactly the same thing you continue to do, you forgot about the working people, you forgot about the empty factories of the rust belt, you took for granted the high crime, low employment inner cities you’ve made unkept promises to for decades.
Instead of looking inward at the real cause for your party’s loss you had to find a scape goat and if it hadn’t have been Russia it would have been something else.
Sen. Schumer, will you do me and America a favor, will you lay your hand on a Holy Bible and tell America that you believe in your heart that Donald Trump has actually colluded with Vladimir Putin and the Russian Government to the detriment of the United States of America.
You see sir, everything you’ve come up with so far, and you’ve been at it since well before the election, has been superficial, and I believe that anything your special counsel will come up with will also be superficial, guilt by association, the fires of trivially fanned and proliferated by a tilted, hate filled media and super partisan politicians.
Sen. Schumer, what goes around truly does come around and if, or should I say when, this pendulum starts swinging back the other way, do you realize that Mr. Mueller could actually find a lot more dirt on prominent democrats than they do Trump and his staff.
You have opened Pandora’s Box, sir, and basically thrown away the lid.
Now it’s time to chop the log and let the chips fall where they will.
If President Trump has actually colluded with the Russians or any other foreign government, or sold out my beloved nation in any way, I definitely want to know about it, and if he has he should be impeached and thrown out of office in disgrace, but right now you’re a hell of a long way from proving even one little iota of your accusations.
Now let’s turn this coin over.
Did or did not Hillary Clinton allow Russia to purchase up to 20% of American uranium reserves?
Who leaked the classified information that started this ball rolling? For the investigation to be valid, that has to come out.
Did Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s State department through incompetence, indifference or both allow four American citizens to die in Benghazi?
Careful how you answer this one because the jury and some explosive evidence are still out there and could well be brought to light in a few months.
Did or did not Hillary, by using an unsecured internet server and allowing Huma Abedin to email copies to her husband, Anthony Weiner, expose classified documents?
Was there collusion between the Obama administration and the IRS to disallow tax free status to conservative organizations?
If not, why did Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment and retire with full benefits?
You see sir, Pandora is neither a Democrat or a Republican and what is revealed in the coming months could well be a two-edged sword.
Careful what you wish for.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.
God Bless America
