I remember when anyone admitting to be a socialist was blacklisted from many venues of life, especially, politics. Today, an openly admitted socialist not only holds a seat in the US Senate, but ran a close primary for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016.
Sen. Bernie Sanders has openly admitted he is a socialist and he has condemned many rights and freedoms given us by the US Constitution. He has been one of the more anti-constitutional members of Congress, which is why his latest comments concerning the possibility of a constitutional crisis concerning the investigation being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller is so hypocritical.
(The Hill) – From the moment Robert Mueller was named special counsel to investigate the Russia scandal, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has been a fierce defender of his due to the former FBI director’s extraordinary reputation for integrity and professionalism in law enforcement and the law.
This past Christmas weekend, there existed a tale of two political figures: President Trump continued his attack on the FBI, and he publicly displayed his paranoia over the dossier compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele. Meanwhile, Sanders warned the nation that if Trump fires Mueller or pardons suspects or witnesses in the investigation, he will provoke a constitutional crisis.
Reasonable people might ask what compelled Trump, when so many Americans were singing Christmas carols and exchanging gifts, to use the holiday weekend to continue his vendetta against the FBI through his false accusation that investigations of the Russia scandal are witch hunts and to continue his repeated attacks against the Steele dossier…
It’s ironic, or perhaps I should say moronic for a socialist who would like nothing better than to see the US Constitution totally re-written, to warn of a constitutional crisis, especially when he supported many of the anti-constitutional actions of Barack Obama during his tenure in the White House.
