The Rotting Hypocrisy of Team Trump

Trump is suing to try to prevent the House Oversight Committee from investigating him, claiming that the investigation is pure harassment.

Gee. Remember when, under pissants like Devin Nunez,[1] the House engaged in "All Benghazi All the Time", investigations that went nowhere, repeatedly?

Then there was this gobsmacking moment, when Rudy the Mouth:
“There’s nothing wrong with taking information from Russians,” Giuliani said Sunday, referring to a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting involving Trump’s son Donald Jr., son-in-law Jared Kushner and former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and a lawyer linked to Russia.
Really, Rudy? There's nothing wrong with taking help from an enemy of the country?

Let's test that. Suppose the help was being offered by China? Is that OK, Rudy? Or ISIS? Would Rudy think there was nothing wrong in using dirt that was in the possession of al Qaeda?

Putin's Russia is no less of an adversary than was the Soviet Union under Brezhnev. If a Democrat had accepted a packet of opposition research from the KGB, there would have been cries of treason from Republicans. But now, it's OK if a Republican accepts help in an electoral contest from our nation's adversaries.

Because it's not treason if it's done by Republicans.

He's gonna have a hard time blocking documents and testimony that he has already once allowed. If he was gonna stonewall, he should have tried to claim executive privilege when Mueller asked to interview McGahn.
And he was apparently furious when he found out he had given up his right to claim it already.
Perhaps a more knowledgeable government official would have known better, but then again, a more knowledgeable government official most likely wouldn't have done the things he's now trying to hide, or at least stall with lawsuits until after the election.

The 80s called. They want their "enemy of the country" back. A large percentage of the population considers democrats and their supporters the enemy of the country.
