QUOTE: To tell the truth

Print Article

Here are words Senator Risch and Representative Fulcher need to hear. As an Idahoan, Iím thoroughly ashamed of our representatives in Congress as should all Idahoans regardless of their party.

ďThese are the moments where my anger is somewhat palpable because youíve got to be honest. There are, in todayís Republican Party, spineless politicians rotten to the core without virtue. Without any level of human integrity, devoid of self-respect, self-reflection, without courage, and without the moral compass to recognize their own malevolence.

ďThe problem is it requires every single Republican to align with Donald Trump and say that only Donald Trump speaks the truth. That Lt. Col. Vindman, a man of honor and Purple Heart recipient, does not speak the truth. Ambassador McKinley, someone whoís referred to as ďthe dean of the foreign service corps,Ē does not speak the truth. Ambassador Yovanovitch, somebody who dedicated her life to promoting freedom and U.S. ideals on the world stage, does not speak the truth. Only Donald Trump does. And there is no greater example of selling your soul to a charlatan than what the Republicans are doing right now in the House and Senate. And their legacies are on the line as much as Donald Trumpís. Watching play out in this impeachment proceedings is the failing of a Republican Party and every single member that goes along with this.Ē ó David Jolly, former Republican congressman from Florida.
