Silence from Trump. He claims to know nothing about the Parnas revelations, the backdoor investigation led by Giuliani, the stalking of Ambassador Yavonivitch, the quid pro quo, or the attempt to smear Biden, even though Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney, whose shenanigans have been going on for months, was working closely with Parnas. Does anyone believe Giuliani shared nothing with Trump? Or that Trump was notorchestrating much of it?
Silence from Congressman Devin Nunes, ranking minority member on the Intelligence committee, who tamped down anything detrimental to Trump.
Silence until he and his aide, Mr. Derrick Harvey were caught in phone, email and text messages communicating with Mr. Parnas and participatingin the scheme to smear Joe Biden. Does anyone believe that Nunes shared nothing with Trump? Or that Trump did not put him up to it?
Silence from Senate Republicans about what Trump does and says.
Silence from Senate Republicans as Trump’s White House writes new rules on school nutrition and is in the process of redefining what nutrition programs are required to offer, particularly on fruits and vegetables. French fries are likely to become vegetables and jello will be classified as fruit. A snack might be Cheetos (cheese after all).
Silence from the Congress as they pay $13.8 million for Trump’s golf trips to Mar-a-Lago.
Silence from Congressional Republicans, (used to be hawks), as Trump denies any injuries to American servicemen as a result of the Iranian missile strike at our base in Iraq. Yet, eleven servicemen suffering concussions have been flown to U.S. medical facilities for observation and treatment.
Silence from Senate Republicans while North Korea rapidly builds missiles.
Silence from Trump administration on bringing home Marine Paul Whelan imprisoned by the Russians in 2019.
Silence rom Republicans as Americans continue to suffer from outbreaks of contaminated food as the White House cuts by one third the number of food inspectors.
Silence from Republicans on gun violence. In January, 2020, 13 dead and 63 injured.
Silence from Republicans as Trump betrays allies, perpetuates the myth that it was the Ukrainians and not the Russians who interfered in 2016, and looks the other way as Trump uses his office to line his pockets.
Silence is not always golden.
"Fools, …You do not know. Silence, like a cancer, grows.
