MoDo Writes a Letter

For John, BLUFOpen letters are the new style.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

"An Open Letter to"

International New York Times Columnist Maureen Dowd writes:

SINCE open letters to secretive and duplicitous regimes are in fashion, we would like to post an Open Letter to the Leaders of the Clinton Republic of Chappaqua:
Just like the Fabled 47.

Hardly like the "fabled 47" at all. Making light of disrespect for the Constitution and related Acts and Laws is aiding and abetting in my book--unbecoming at the very least.

Or, maybe we could use retired Major General Paul D. Eaton's word: "Mutinous".

"What Senator Cotton did is a gross breach of discipline, and especially as a veteran of the Army, he should know better".

"I have no issue with Senator Cotton, or others, voicing their opinion in opposition to any deal to halt Iran's nuclear progress. Speaking out on these issues is clearly part of his job. But to directly engage a foreign entity, in this way, undermining the strategy and work of our diplomats and our Commander In Chief, strains the very discipline and structure that our foreign relations depend on, to succeed".

He further goes on to characterize this "breach of discipline" as "extremely dangerous". The closing quote on this piece says it all:

"I expect better from the men and women who wore the uniform".

So, just to be clear, the US Attorney General, Eric Holder, should charge the Fabled 47 under the Logan Act.  Or at least Senator Cotton as a starter.  Have you dropped him (Eric) a billet-doux?

It doesn't seem to me that Senator Tom Cotton is going anywhere otherwise.  He is good into January 2021, unless recalled. I guess you could demand that Rep Niki Tsongas introduce a Bill of Impeachment into the House.  What did her office say?

In mitigation for Senator Cotton, he is a grad of Harvard and Harvard Law.

I've said this to you before. Democrats will never bring charges for this sort of thing, because so many of them, from Pelosi on down, are equally guilty for their acts against previous administrations. I don't know why you think it's appropriate to play the "but they're worse" game with me--I believe both parties are guilty and that there are few to no representatives of We The People in Washington to do our business.

It's just par for this course that your only sensitivity is when the scandal touches your sacred pigs.

I don't think that it is a partisan issue.  On the other hand, I think this is a mountain out of a mole hill.  I call for calling for indictments as a way of saying it is all bogus.

And the use of terms like "Mutinous" is strange, given our Constitution.  "Treason" is even worse.

We are not talking Benedict Arnold or Jeff Davis or Robert E Lee or Aaron Burr or even American Army Lieutenant Philip Nolan.
