Irate GOP Senator Is Fighting Trump Over 'Embarrassing' Russia Documents

Irate GOP Senator Is Fighting Trump Over ’Embarrassing’ Russia Documents


One of the U.S. Senate’s most powerful Republicans is fuming mad at President Donald Trump.

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley, former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, has declared war against Trump’s White House according to a new report in POLITICO.

What’s riled up Grassley is the refusal by the Trump administration to turn over sensitive information related to Russia.

This morning’s article says that Grassley “is accusing the Trump administration of stonewalling him over a request for documents related to the Russia investigation,” so he is holding up the nomination of a key Trump appointee.

Then the article goes on to say:

“The Iowa Republican’s demand for Justice Department documents on its probe of possible links between the Trump campaign and Moscow has left William Evanina’s nomination to head the National Counterintelligence and Security Center in limbo for the past year, frustrating the nation’s top intelligence leaders and even some fellow Senate Republicans.”


The POLITICO report notes that Grassley is seeking specific documents concerning to Justice Department official Bruce Ohr, “who became a conduit between former British spy Christopher Steele and the FBI.”

In a statement submitted to the Congressional Record, Grassley wrote:

“The administration’s continued, ongoing, and blatant lack of cooperation has forced my hand.”

1. I predict Grassley will fall in line momentarily.

They all do. They are all complicit in the rise of American Fascism.

4. If he is so gosh-darn angry

then why doesn't he do something other than grumble and sputter? He could do more than hold up one nomination. How did he vote on Kavanaugh, for example? Or any other of the items that came up for a vote in the last couple of years?
