Questioning Trump’s Mental Competence must Include his Republican Supporters in Congress

A hypothetical: if you were a high-ranking member of a president’s staff, or a leading member of Congress with access to the president, and you witnessed proof that his mental competence to perform his duties was less than what is needed to lead our nation, would you come forward and speak the truth to the American people?

If you said ‘no,’ you must be a man or woman who places his or her party above the United States of America; in other words, a Republican.

Mike Pompeo, Trump’s appointee as CIA Director defends his competency, as does Stephen Miller, the White House chief policy adviser. They are desperate and paid to do so. However, dozens more have come forward not only to state Trump’s lack of mental stability, but also to describe his actions and inactions which offer proof about their claims.

Adam Schiff is the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee. Appearing on CNN’s ‘State of the Union’ Sunday, he offered facts which most of us who follow politics closely have known for a very long time.

“I don’t think anyone is particularity surprised by what has been revealed in the Wolff book, in terms of what people closest with Trump have about his capacity to do the job. I don’t think there’s anyone in Congress, frankly of either party, who does not concur at least privately with those observations and concerns. Certainly very few are willing to express it publicly in Congress — to the detriment of our institution.”

However, the second part of his statement was far more important. He is unsure if Republicans will have the courage to do the right thing; and so am I.

“The big question for us though is: We have a seriously flawed human being in the oval office. Will those flaws be allowed to permeate the whole of government?”

We cannot wait much longer.

Please share the truth; thank you.
