An open letter to Senate Democrats

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/senate-democrats-tie-gorsuch-filibuster-to-russia_us_58b36dc5e4b0658fc20f9740?

Found at Huffington Post...sounds like a plan to me....

Dear Senators,

Your constituents are upset over what is happening in the country right now. On the left, citizens were aghast as the administration rolled out a travel ban targeting Muslims, rescinded protections for transgender children, and pushed through confirmations for cabinet officials who were and are uniquely unqualified to run the Federal agencies to which they’ve been appointed. For those on the right, while the general direction of domestic policy under the Trump administration may hold some appeal, Trump’s erratic behavior and authoritarian tone, assaults on the free press, and bungling of foreign relations (among other issues) are a real cause for concern. These early perceptions of a rocky start for Trump have led to unusually low approval numbers for a presidency in its infancy.

But let’s set that aside: we can criticize Trump on his juvenile tone, his bluster on the world stage and his regressive policy positions for the next four years if we have to. At the moment there is a more pressing concern: President Trump’s ties to Russia.

In the midst of the 2016 campaign, Trump’s praise for Vladimir Putin raised yellow flags, a perception compounded by Trump’s televised open invitation for Russia to hack Clinton campaign emails to find a smoking gun on his opponent.

Some brushed off this comment as flippant – the unrestrained ramblings of an accomplished bullshit artist: just “Trump being Trump.” But the President’s continued dismissal of the intelligence community’s consensus that Russia was responsible for the DNC hack and his corresponding statements about “how great it would be” if we had a better relationship with Russia are both confounding and deeply suspicious.
