Get out of the shadows and tell everything you know, Democrat argues with the notorious New York Times writer who threw Donald Trump from his administration
- Democratic Rep. Gregory Meeks published an op / ed calling for a & # 39; challenging resistance & # 39; within the Trump government to come forward
- This focused on a year-old claim by a senior official who claimed that many who worked in the White House worked to preserve democracy
- & # 39; Those of you who are still there, it's time to get out of the shade, & # 39; Meeks insisted
- The author of the piece remains anonymous and it is unclear whether the official still works within the Trump administration
- Meeks says officials who work in the White House & # 39; resistance & # 39; must identify and share what they know
- The urge comes when the House opens an investigation into allegations with the president
A year after an anonymous board official was an op / ed author of a & # 39; challenging resistance & # 39; within the Trump government, a democratic legislator called on Monday for that person to come forward.
Gregory Meeks, a democratic representative from New York, wrote in an open letter published in the Washington Post Monday that the internal effort to preserve democracy with Donald Trump in the White House & # 39; clearly no longer works – if it ever did & # 39;
& # 39; With each passing day, the Trump government trades in patriots for sycophants who support whatever this president says or does to remain in his good grace & # 39 ;, Meeks wrote, adding that he is unsure whether the anonymous senior officer still works in the administration.
& # 39; Those of you who are still there, it's time to get out of the shade, & # 39; he insisted. & # 39; Our nation does not need hidden agents of democracy. It needs fearless whistleblowers who are willing to step forward and defend the institutions that this president has dragged him into the sand. & # 39;
Democratic Rep. Gregory Meeks insisted that the & # 39; challenging resistance & # 39; within the Trump government described that an anonymous senior official must come out of the shadows last year & # 39; and dirt must share on the Trump presidency
Last September, an official anonymously wrote an op-ed claiming that there were people within the Trump government who were more concerned with preserving democracy than appealing to Trump's agenda. It is still unclear who that official is or that they are still working in the White House
Last September a senior official published an op / ed in The New York Times claim that & # 39; many of the senior officials in [Trump & # 39; s] administration work hard from the inside to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst tendencies. & # 39;
& # 39; I would know. I am one of them, & wrote the notorious author.
Meeks now wants those senior officials to come forward, reveal their identities and share what they know and what they have learned by working within the Trump government.
The official clarified in the article that it described opposing & # 39; is not the same as that of the left, insisting that they want Trump to succeed and think that much administration policy will make America & # 39; more secure and prosperous & # 39; has made.
& # 39; But we believe that our first duty is towards this country, & # 39; says the one-year-old opened, & # 39; and the president continues to act in a way that is harmful to the health of our republic. & # 39;
Meeks says that what it & # 39; oppose & # 39; within the government also felt that it could reach a year ago, is not being fulfilled today.
& # 39; [W] whoever you are, anonymous patriot, think that you can exert influence, whatever you think happens in the White House, there is probably much, much more. It is a risk that none of us can pay, & Meeks wrote.
In the year since the publication was published, Robert Mueller ended his investigation in Russia, clearing the president of collusion, but this month revealed Trump's revelations with a doubtful telephone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
Meeks claims that Trump has also dealt with various other harmful practices since last September.
& # 39; President Trump provided cover to Saudi Arabia after killing a US-based journalist, continued to enrich himself and his family by welcoming foreign delegations to his hotels, excuses for officials who may break the law during execution of his border policy and hindered the investigation of Russian interference in our elections, & he complained.
Earlier this month, a whistleblower complaint was uncovered where the person claims that Trump was in return for millions of military aid when he urged Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden and the business transactions of his son Hunter Biden in the country.
The new information about the July 25 call has led House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to announce that the Chamber is formally launching an investigation into allegations of the President.
