Well it looks like someone in The Democratic Party has finally learned how to play “The Game Of Thrones.” Cersei Lannister once told Ned Stark “In The Game Of Thrones you play for keeps!” Ned Stark didn’t heed the warning. It’s one of the reasons he’s not alive anymore…..well not really. The Game Of Thrones is a fictional series with fictional characters and events, BUT, the Game that is being played by GOP members in the Senate and House is very real. Most Democrats don’t even seem aware that they are in the game. The game I speak of, is the game of “protect Trump by any means necessary”…even if those means require breaking the law. Republicans have been running through the halls of Congress breaking every law that was ever put in place by the founding fathers of this Country, in their Trump protecting agenda. Including, willingly looking the other way when it came to anything Trump-Russia related. Democrats seemed to be completely content by playing under the rules that were being changed and set by a corrupt GOP. You will never beat a cheater by attempting to play fair, no matter how hard you try. While you’re breaking your necks to win within the rules of the game, the cheater is breaking every rule and making winning very easily for himself. This is something that I don’t believe Democrats have figured out…..until now.
CNBC (@cnbn) reports, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., on Tuesday released the full transcript from Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson’s testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.
“The innuendo and misinformation circulating about the transcript are part of a deeply troubling effort to undermine the investigation into potential collusion and obstruction of justice. The only way to set the record straight is to make the transcript public.” Feinstein said in a statement.
The move follows a decision by Republicans Chuck Grassley and Lindsey Graham to issue a criminal referral last week against Christopher Steele, the former British spy who authored the Trump dossier.
In an op-ed for The New York Times on January 2nd, Simpson and Fusion GPS partner Peter Fritsch criticized Republicans for selectively leaking portions of Simpsons’ testimony.
“Republicans have refused to release full transcripts of our firm’s testimony, even as they selectively leak details to media outlets on the far right. It’s time to share what our company told investigators.”
Republicans have been tilting the game in their favor since they gained control of the Senate, House, and Presidency. They have been making rules up as they went along. Rules that have been set for years seemed to suddenly disappear. The reason for most of these rule changes were to accomplish one thing. Protect Donald Trump and his corrupt regime by any means. Everything the GOP has done since they gained control has been in an effort to move the “protect Trump” agenda forward. Even as Trump and clan clumsily break every law known to man, the GOP has been right there to protect them. There is no doubt that the selective leaking of passages from Fusion GPS’s co-founder were in an attempt to move the agenda forward. Two Republicans who were part of a bi-partisan investigation, got together and decided among themselves that criminal charges should be brought against the creator of the Trump Dossier, Christopher Steele. Their decision was based on selective leaked passages of testimony from Glenn Simpson. Dianne Feinstein has poked a whole in their corrupt plan. What do you think will be found when the complete transcripts are read by the public? “In The Game Of Thrones you play for keeps!” Good work Senator Feinstein, maybe you can pass some of that knowledge of how to play the game along to your Democratic colleagues.
