Trump Once Again Demonstrates Why His Russia Scandal Should Be Investigated

There is definitely such a thing as protesting too much, and Donald Trump is making it very clear that Congress should investigate his ties to Russia.

In yet another hissy fit on Twitter, Trump whined about his Russia scandal continuing to be a major news story and claimed that the media keeps bringing it up to hide his “big” election victory.

First of all, Trump’s “big” election victory was one of the smallest on record. He only received 306 electoral votes, which is lower the both of President Obama’s totals in 2008 and 2012. Furthermore, Trump lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.

Second, the media continues to report on Russia because it is a major scandal that Trump has been trying to shake for months now. His chief-of-staff Reince Priebus even desperately asked the FBI to shut down the reports on it in order to muzzle the story.

Third, leaks are important sources for the press, especially since Trump lies constantly every time he speaks. Also, Trump is only calling the news “fake” because he doesn’t like it.

But Trump’s obsession with calling his Russia scandal “fake news” should be reason enough for Congress to open an investigation. Trump has been protesting this story and trying to make it go away for way too long. If there is truly nothing to the story then Trump would just ignore it. But he isn’t because he has something to hide.

As usual, Twitter users were not impressed by Trump’s tweet either.

The bottom line is that Trump needs to be investigated by Congress, but Republicans are too busy making excuses so that they don’t have to do it. Because if they did their duty, they would discover Trump’s treachery and would be forced to impeach him. And they don’t want to do that because they would lose their rubber stamp and piss off their voter base.
