Leahy statement on Trump’s sudden firing of Secretary of State Tillerson

Tue, 03/13/2018 - 11:16am -- tim

by US Senator Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont) The only predictable thing about this President is that nothing he says or does survives the test of time.  Cabinet officials are fired without even the courtesy of a phone call.  Policy pronouncements made with fanfare yesterday are repudiated today.  One minute a corrupt foreign dictator is publicly ridiculed, the next minute he is called a great leader and friend.  Running our government and foreign policy like an erratic ratings-driven TV impresario is damaging America’s image, interests and leadership.

I recently learned of language included in Section 4012 of H.R.2825, which provides for the reauthorization of the federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which would allow armed Secret Service agents to enter polling locations – at the direction of the president. To say that I am shocked would be a severe understatement.
