Pat Buchanan was in his familiar role “rabidly” defending Trump’s shadow campaign to boost his 2020 Presidential run.
We had sworn testimony from State Department officials, whose role it is in foreign policy to advance U.S. interests and protect our country from bad foreign actors, that the politically-driven pressure campaign Trump had Giuliani doing for him endangers the security of the U.S.
According to Mr. Buchanan, though, Trump has every right to have Giuliani run a “domestic political errand” (as Fiona Hill so aptly put it) for his personal benefit at the expense of the U.S. and the president’s own foreign policy.
Mr. Buchanan misses the point of how much Trump’s personal shadow campaign has undermined U.S. foreign policy, and is giving credence to the Russian disinformation campaign that continues to disrupt us and keep us divided as a nation. These partisan actions by Trump and his cronies, put U.S. foreign policy in peril and do not support the security of our country.
Members of Congress should be alarmed at this obstructive abuse of power by Trump. Congress will have to decide where to take impeachment.
