Questions Congress should ask the American translator in Helsinki: Were written notes passed between Mr. Trump & Mr. Putin? Did Mr. Trump ask Mr. Putin to conceal anything about the past? Were any promises made? Were you asked to step aside at any time?

Article One of the Constitution, which established the Legislative Branch, does not say Congress is subservient to the President (especially an unstable, unfit, & reckless one). Congress must do its job—fund the government, end the shutdown, & then negotiate border security.

It is my sincere hope that the forthcoming exposure of your malfeasance & corruption will convince enough Republicans to abandon you in 2019. We have had enough of your whining from the White House. We need an actual leader—our Nation’s future is at stake.

Brett worked extremely hard over many years to ensure the US fulfilled its leadership role in a critically important part of the world. Like Sec. Mattis, Brett believes in the principles, values, & partnerships that define America. Donald Trump does not.

Okay, Republicans. How much longer are you going to let this farcical “presidency” continue? At a time of such political, economic, and geo-strategic turbulence—both nationally and globally—are you waiting for a catastrophe to happen before acting? Disaster looms!

This wrong-headed decision is but one example of how dangerous it is for our national security to be controlled by Mr. Trump’s impulsive and self-satisfying “gut.” He is surrendering America’s role on the world stage. Republicans who make excuses for him enable these actions.

Whenever you send out such inane tweets, I take great solace in knowing that you realize how much trouble you are in & how impossible it will be for you to escape American justice. Mostly, I am relieved that you will never have the opportunity to run for public office again.

As a former Director of CIA, President George H.W. Bush is a revered figure among past & present members of CIA’s family. Accordingly, previous Directors & Deputy Directors of CIA issued a joint statement of respect, admiration, and appreciation for his selfless public service.

George H.W. Bush led a life of exemplary public service, integrity, and determination—in WWII, in Congress, as UN Ambassador, Envoy to China, CIA Director, and as Vice President & President. A life very well lived; an American who made us all proud. May he rest in eternal peace.

The iceberg of lies, deceit, corruption, & criminality is steadily but surely surfacing, despite the efforts of many in high places to keep it submerged. How large is the iceberg & who will be found clinging to it? The wheels of justice turn slowly, but grind exceedingly fine.

Your feelings of inferiority, insecurity, vulnerability, and culpability are loud & clear. You remind me of how many corrupt authoritarian leaders abroad behaved before they were deposed. Bob Mueller’s name will be revered in the annals of U.S. history; your name will be scorned.

Michael Hayden is one of this country’s noblest patriots, dedicating his life to America’s national security. A man of tremendous integrity, intellect, & decency, he has been a role model for countless intelligence professionals over several decades. Speedy recovery, Mike.

On this special day, I give thanks for all Americans who honorably serve and protect our Country as well as those who bravely speak out against injustice, lies, prejudice, & sexual assault. I very much look forward to future Thanksgivings when we will come together as one Nation.

Since Mr. Trump excels in dishonesty, it is now up to members of Congress to obtain & declassify the CIA findings on Jamal Khashoggi’s death. No one in Saudi Arabia—most especially the Crown Prince—should escape accountability for such a heinous act.

You constantly remind us how substantively shallow & dishonest you are on so many fronts, which is why we are in such dangerous times. You would need an extremely tall ladder to get anywhere near the level of intellect, competence & integrity of Bill McRaven & your predecessors.

Trudeau, Macron, Merkel...it is so refreshing to see principled leaders saying & doing the right things...for their countries as well as for global peace & stability. I miss the days when American Presidents, while never perfect, were respected for their honesty & integrity.

Opportunity to repudiate & to restore Congressional ability to thwart his recklessness & fear mongering arrives tomorrow. Vote for individuals who represent the best of America. In this election, those who stand with Trump must be defeated. Vote!

My former CIA colleagues Elissa Slotkin in Michigan’s 8th District & Abagail Spanberger in Virginia’s 7th District will bring needed common sense, experience, & wisdom to Congress. They will help derail the Trump train, bring bipartisanship to Washington, & deserve your vote.

As a former resident of Texas and a proud UT-Austin alumnus, I believe Beto O’Rourke is the type of individual Texans need in the U.S. Senate to represent their best interests. He has the integrity, intellect, and character that is in short supply in Congress. Vote!

As the child of an immigrant, I will vote for candidates who believe in America living up to its values & remaining the world’s melting pot. I will vote for individuals who are honest, have integrity, reject inflammatory rhetoric & want to bring us together. Vote your conscience!
