The Public Trust

The Oath: 5 USC 1331

An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: “I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

Every federal employee takes this oath. Kellyanne Conway took it. Bill Barr took it. So did Steve Mnuchin, Wilbur Ross, Sarah Sanders, hope Hicks, and all the rest. They take this oath because it's required by law, but also because it is intended to instill the public's trust that our government officials are acting in accordance with the Constitution and the laws of our country.

Conway, Barr, Mnuchin, and Ross at least have all broken this oath. They are breaking the law and giving the American people the finger while they do it. Nobody is holding them accountable for their illegal acts. It's time for Congress, meaning the Democrats in the House, to do something about this. They can start by having federal marshals or the Sergeant At Arms go to Conway's home and detain her. Then she should be fined $100,000 per day for refusing to testify and placed in jail with $10 million bail for violating the Hatch Act.

Next is Mnuchin. Or we can start with the head of the IRS. Federal law requires that the president's tax returns be given to the Congress upon request. There are no ifs, ands, nor buts about this. It is the law. Hold him in contempt, tine him $100,000 per day until he complies.

The point is, ENOUGH of the lawless corruption. No Democrat should be in front of a camera or a microphone without first stating that Trump, Conway, Barr, Mnuchin, and Ross are totally corrupt and violating not only the law, but the Constitution AND THEIR OATH OF OFFICE.

It's got to stop and the Democrats have to do something about it.
