Yesterday morning I called my senator, Kirsten Gillibrand’s office and questioned why she has not called on Mr Trump to resign, since she has called on Franken to resign for much less. I also called on her to name the other Congressmen who had harrassed her in 2014. I explained that it seemed “opportunistic” to call for one to resign and not the others.
Her office simply said that she had already commented on the issue. As a result I wrote a blog critical of her.
Yesterday afternoon Senator Gillibrand finally DID call on Trump to resign.
“President Trump has committed assault, according to these women, and those are very credible allegations of misconduct and criminal activity, and he should be fully investigated and he should resign,” Gillibrand told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview.
Trump responded as expected.
“Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!”
I am not saying that my phone call had any influence on the Senator, but I am happy that she has been consistent.
