On Nov.6, voters returned democracy to America by placing the Democratic Party in control of the House of Representatives. Ending President Donald Trump’s Republican dictatorial unaccountability and strongman-style one-party rule.

I believe we should do the following: Improve Obamacare. Lower prescription drug prices. Curb gun violence. Improve our immigration system; millions of Americans saw television coverage of a shoeless, diapered child being tear-gassed on the Mexican border by American authorities as her family sought legal asylum. Offer a workable approach to climate change. Create legislation, allowing the “Dreamers” to become citizens. Expand voting rights, work for progressive tax reform and end Trump’s toxic tyranny.

Trump is unfit for the presidency. He’s banished unbiased voices and gone through numerous advisers.

Following the midterm elections, Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who had recused himself from the Robert Mueller investigation, and unconstitutionally appointed yes-man Matthew Whitaker as acting AG.

Last month, we learned, Trump wanted to criminally prosecute James Comey and Hillary Clinton. He was told he couldn’t do that, as it was an abuse of presidential power. However, President Vladimir Putin does things like that frequently.

Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney and fixer, pleaded guilty to criminally lying to Congress about Trump’s obsessive involvement in building a Trump Tower in Moscow while bribing Putin with a $50 million penthouse in 2016. Trump has repeatedly lied to the American public, “I know nothing about Russia … I don’t deal there.”

I believe Trump is totally compromised by Russia; is it all about money or something else?

Nonetheless, we must ask the question, does Putin have the president of the United States in his pocket and is Putin thereby able, worldwide, to carry out whatever dangerous schemes he wants to accomplish without fear of American retribution?
