The jury is still out on whether there was collusion between the Trump campaign/administration and Russia.

However, one thing has become clear over the course of the last year, and that is that both are working toward demeaning and undermining institutions of the United States government, including the FBI, the CIA and the Department of Justice.

They are being aided in this endeavor by some Republican members of Congress, to the delight of the Russian government. Wouldn’t this be a perfect time for Republican members of Congress to step into the breach and embrace a “Margaret Chase Smith” moment and call out the Trump administration and its minions for the great harm they are doing to our nation?
