As a constituent of Congressman Cline, I have just sent him the following message via his website.
Dear Congressman Cline:
In recent days President Trump has:
—Accused Congressman Adam Schiff of treason and suggested that he be arrested because of the impeachment inquiry that he is leading.
–Warned of the possibility of civil war if he is impeached, a warning which Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger called “beyond repugnant.”
–Demanded to know the identity of the whistleblower who filed a complaint about Trump’s phone call with the president of Ukraine, drawing a rebuke from Republican Senator Charles Grassley.
So far all we have from you is a statement accusing the Speaker of the House of caving into “the far-left” of her party on impeachment, and dismissing the serious allegations against Trump as “rumors, phone transcripts, and third-party allegations”– allegations which the inspector general of the intelligence community called “urgent.”
My question for you– and I would like an answer for a change– is when will you start putting country above party and above your fear of being “primaried,” and stop overlooking Trump’s wild behavior and flagrant abuse of power?
