Things That Must Happen

The people who have seen the real evidence of what Trump and his toadies have been up to with Putin, which includes a large number of intelligence officers, and many members of Congress, are faced with a painful dilemma.  On the one hand, revealing this information to the public will be treated as a monstrous crime, for which they will be savaged.  On the other hand, their clear duty to the Constitution, and any concern they have over the survival of our country, demand that what they know be made public.

At some point, we are going to need a Daniel Ellsberg, who was initially charged with conspiracy, espionage and theft of government property, for revealing information which every American needed to know about the conduct of the Vietnam war.  As the monstrous nature of what he revealed dawned on people, the charges were dropped, but that does not mean that the far more corrupt Republican party we have today will have the same concern about the horrors perpetrated by their own members, and far more taste for revenge on anyone who reveals them for who they are.  That is why I have suggested that these revelations should come from all of the Democrats in Congress acting in concert. It would be an interesting spectacle to see the Republicans, faced with clear evidence of their own treason, to try to charge the entire Democratic congressional delegation with the same crime for alerting the American people to the danger.

In any event, the information must be revealed.  And along with it, the other key part of this puzzle, Trump's tax returns, must also be made public. The truth is absolutely the only thing that can save us from a horror at the hands of those who are trying to destroy democratic government in this country; despite their insane incompetence at actually doing their jobs, have already moved a good way toward reaching that goal.

Let the truth out and the American people can decide if the news is fake or if the president is fake.

It's the only hope I have. The truth may set you free, but I'm hoping that the truth will set Trump and his toadies unfree.
