Anybody notice that today Republican lawmakers talked about tax cuts, the weather or anything ELSE except the Mueller actions?
And so on…And so on…And so on…..
You guy gonna continue to let him skate?

It WILL take balls to stand up and stand in there….
That little scene is being enacted in one form or another across Washington on Monday, after indictments of three former Trump campaign officials. Reporters are seeking comment from Republican officeholders. Republican officeholders are desperately eluding reporters, conforming to the maxim often attributed to Calvin Coolidge, “You don’t have to explain what you never said.”

You don’t want to focus on presidential misdeeds until you have delivered on your top priority. But by the time you are ready to move, things will have moved against you…..
