During an interview on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) warned Donald Trump that the truth is going to catch up to him on Russia.
Rep. Cummings disagreed with Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) on refusing to work with Trump on everything, but he added, “Many of the things that Maxine is talking about she’s absolutely right. We are finding out more and more every day. There will come a time, Andrea, where the truth will come in contact with these false statements made by Donald Trump, President Trump, and others, and then a judgment call will have to be made. In the meantime, I’ve got to go down both of these tracks. I’ve got to represent my constituents, but I’ve also got to do a fair investigation.”
The point that Rep. Cummings made about the Russia scandal is very true. Time is the enemy of the Trump administration. Eventually, the truth is going to be revealed, but each member of the House also has a duty to represent their constituents. Rep. Waters has argued that her constituents don’t want her to work with Trump, but I think that the decision is up to each member of the House and their constituents.
The truth is coming for Trump. The White House has nowhere to run. They have nowhere to hide. The false statements are piling up, and the reason why the administration is working so hard to derail the Russia investigations is that the truth behind the lies is likely enough to destroy the Trump presidency.
Rep. Cummings is right. There is inevitable collusion becoming between Donald Trump’s Russia lies and reality.
