US Congresswoman Slam’s ‘Lawless’, ’King-like’ Trump

US Congresswoman Slam’s ‘Lawless’, ’King-like’ Trump

Alwaght- US congresswoman Rashida Tlaib rebuked President Donald Trump as “ king-like" and "lawless”, emphasizing that  trump must be stopped.

“The one thing I noticed when I first got here is the lack of urgency on a number of fronts,” the Muslim congresswoman was cited as saying by VICE News in a Saturday report. “[Trump is] king-like. He’s lawless. We have to stop it because we have to put our country and our democracy first.”

The Palestinian-American woman is a member of the “squad,” a progressive Democratic group in the House, along with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ayanna Pressley and Ilhan Omar.

 “People like me have been running for office, but we’re finally winning,” said the Michigan representative. “And we’re winning because I think folks are realizing that our democracy has been hijacked by corporations.”

She made the comments as the Trump administration was grappling with the pressure emanating from an impeachment inquiry in the lower chamber of the congress over his quid pro quo with Ukraine.

“I believe too much in our country that we’re not going to fail the American people,” Tlaib said. “Too many of us are looking, and too many of us are not going to stay silent.”

On Friday, US Attorney General William Barr defended Trump, accusing is opponents of trying to “sabotage the functioning of his administration.”

“While the President has certainly thrown out the traditional Beltway playbook, he was upfront about that beforehand, and the people voted for him, he said. “The fact is that this Administration’s policy initiatives and proposed rules, including the Travel Ban, have transgressed neither constitutional, nor traditional, norms, and have been amply supported by the law and patiently litigated through the Court system to vindication.”

Barr has so far refused to comment on the quid pro quo, only sufficing to say that the redacted transcript of the call between Trump and his Ukrainian counterpart proves nothing.

 “Immediately after President Trump won election, opponents inaugurated what they called ‘The Resistance,’ and they rallied around an explicit strategy of using every tool and maneuver available to sabotage the functioning of his Administration,” he said. “They essentially see themselves as engaged in a war to cripple, by any means necessary, a duly elected government.”

Trump tied $400 million in military aid to Ukraine to Kiev’s compliance with his request to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden.
