John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, and Randy Weber are willfully ignoring Trump’s serious breach of the Constitution.

Name calling and insults from Cornyn on Twitter don't change the fact that Donald J. Trump is using the levers of government to frame up his political opponents. It’s unconstitutional and therefore illegal. It’s not a joke. It’s a serious crime. It’s an abuse of power.

These are very, very serious crimes. When you try to deliberately frame somebody and you use the institutions of government to do it and you try to enlist foreign governments in your frame up, those are extremely serious crimes.

Time is of the essence. Trump is a dangerous threat to national security and everything America stands for.

Our representatives must impeach Trump or resign. Their oath of office demands it.

John Cornyn, Ted Cruz, and Randy Weber are not "our representatives". They are professional politicians whose livelihood depends on the favor of the Republican base, and that base is completely in love with Donald Trump. They could not care less about the opinions of the rest of Texas.

Carlos Ponce

They're my representatives and senators. When they don't represent my views I let them know. All three were in Santa Fe, Texas to talk to the people and after their support following the shooting. I've spoken with Randy Weber on several occasions in Hitchcock. Randy speaks of things that matter to residents of Texas Congressional District 14. John and Ted speak of things that matter to all of Texas. "They could not care less about the opinions of the rest of Texas." Not true.

Any politician who has been in office more than 2 terms is a "professional politician", Republican or Socialist.

Gary Scoggin

What about Democrats? You left them out.

Bailey Jones

It's a skewed sample.

Gary Miller

Our representatives? Not yours. You voted for the criminals who lost to our Representatives. Our Representatives are doing a good job and we will reelect them.

Carlos Ponce

"the fact that Donald J. Trump is using the levers of government to frame up his political opponents." Not a fact. It's Liberal propaganda.

Maris Helfrich

Very good point, Ms. Mitchell! YES, "Trump is a dangerous threat to national security and everything America stands for!" The "representatives" you mention....Cornyn, Cruz and Weber should act on their consciences and stand for our beloved democracy....and not for loyalty to a corrupt, incompetent leader who is turning

the land that we love into an authoritarian state and gradually destroying the pillars of our representative democracy and its Constitution! Thank you for voicing your opinion.

Carlos Ponce

And don't be surprised, Maris, when each is re-elected.[beam]

Gary Miller

Maris> The only thing Trump is destroying is the Socialist/Progressive/Liberal/Democrat political cabal that wants to destroy the American way of life. A good thing that he alone may achieve.

Emile Pope

Everyone understands that Donald is a crook. It's obvious to everyone even the ones who vehemently deny it. His actions would never be tolerated by any of the people who defend him if he were a Democrat. Animal Farm 2? The only thing in question is whether he'll get away with it. And that will be determined by how many people are willing to lie to themselves...

Carlos Ponce

"Everyone understands that Donald is a crook. It's obvious to everyone even the ones who vehemently deny it." No Emile. That's just political rhetoric. Note that Schiff is having his hearings behind closed doors. Republicans cannot question nor call rebuttal witnesses. No transcripts provided. Leaks are cherry picked with no exculpatory evidence. Animal Farm 2? Looks like it. Republicans are being Schiffed. But the truth will come out. Trump will not be impeached. Trump will be re-elected. Republicans will retain the Senate, retake the House.

Gary Miller

Emile> The real criminals will soon be identified. They started 19 minutes after Trump was elected the effort of trying to overthrow the will of America's voters. Trump will have the help of the House and Senate during his second term. I'm not worried about people lying to themselves, People like you who lie to the rest of us are the real problem. Thankfully you belong to a small, fast shrinking, minority.

Emile Pope

They have been. And when they realize that they are putting themselves on the line to protect Donald and will end up going to prison (like Cohen and Manafort) while Donald walks free they'll start singing like canaries...

Trump is a Russian agent!

Follow Rudy and the money, it will lead to 1600 Pennsylvania avenue.

Carlos Ponce

Rudy Tomjanovich? I wondered what happened to him?[wink]

Anne Reiswerg

Already trying to distance yourself from Rudy Ghouliani Carlos? Smart.

Carlos Ponce

"Rudy Ghouliani"???? No such person.

Wash. Rinse Repeat. —. Same arguments by the same people.

Sorry, But with the hatred I see on this forum, I think when President Trump win the next election many of the ones who are venting out hate will do like their Hollywood counterparts promised to do last time he won! Do me a favor! I don't ask for much! I don't need Reparations, nor Forty Acres and a Donky, but do me ONE favor when you leave. TAKE THAT BENIDICT ARNOLD, Judas Iscariot loving , money worshipping LA LAKERS Basketball Player with You!

Anne Reiswerg

Geez Charles - your going to give yourself a heart attack with all that hatred you are writing about. Simmer down.

Charles Douglas

Lololo.....Lolo..You hit me hard on that Ann!! Lolo. L ololo! I just don't see someone born in poverty, and through the blessings from above and a free society others risked their lives to protect, and still others died for, so this individual could prosper in a free democracy, he then, before the whole world, spit on others who are poor like he use to be,...but they have a yoke of destruction around their necks and a communist boot kicking them and killing them which he was spared from! People in Hong kong are dying in the streets for freedom. All that and this clown who is worth millions and his massive greed for more is still needing fulfillment, and is running out of control! How much money can a rich fool spend in this life and in a life in hell? LUKE 12:15 - 21, speaks of another individual who was no different than this basketball player is now. No, I take that back, this player is worse that the Luke 12: 15-21 rich fool.

Bailey Jones

Today, thanks to the "brilliant strategy" of Donald Trump, House Joint Resolution 77 passed, 354 to 60, passing unanimously among Democrats and 2 to 1 among Republicans. Our congressman didn't vote for it, of course, but still - who thought Trump could unite the congress in these divisive days?

Carlos Ponce

Looks like Bailey is applauding the Congressional Hawks.

Bailey Jones

Trump, Trump, Trump - another ally under the bus!

Carlos Ponce

"another ally under the bus!" Yes, our NATO ally, Turkey isn't being nice. Don't worry, Bailey. Turkey should be finished by Thanksgiving.
