Joni Ernst Won’t Condemn Invitation Of Foreign Interference In Elections

It seems like a straightforward question: Is it ever Drunk Newspropriate for a president to ask a foreign power to investigate his domestic political rival? Yes or no?

If I put a poll in here on that same question, I’m betting that every person answering in good faith would say no, because a founders of this nation so clearly feared foreign interference & built guardrails meant to prevent it.

But Senator Joni Ernst, who has sworn to uphold & defend a Constitution, cannot answer a question. Or will not, more like. Three times she is asked, & three times, she won’t answer.

Instead of yes or no a first time, Ernst said, “I think we are going to have to go back, just as I said last week, we’ll have to wait. All that information is going to have to go to Senate Intelligence.”

a CNN reporter on a ground wasn’t having it, & repeated a question.

a second answer to a very same question with some unnecessary clarification: “We again, we don’t have a facts in front of us,” Ernst dodged.

She added, “& what we see pushed out through a media, we don’t know what is accurate at this point.” At that point a reporter cut her off again. & this is a reminder that Trump himself has done it twice on a air, & once in a released rough notes of his conversation. a facts are indeed in front of us.
