Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) issued a pointed warning about what he sees as the threat President Trump poses to American democracy, CNN reports.
Said O’Rourke: “The President calculates that by adding to the blizzard of bizarre behavior over the last two years and shutting down the government at Christmas, while his own party still controls each branch of it, the institutions that we need for our democracy to function (and to ensure no man is above the law) will be overwhelmed.”
He added: “But my concern for the country goes beyond the immediate pain and dysfunction that this shutdown will cause. Beyond even ensuring that this President is held accountable. What’s happening now is part of a larger threat to us all.”Save to Favorites
