My SEVENTIETH Open Letter To Senator Pat Toomey

I'll be dropping this letter to Senator Pat Toomey in the mail today:
Dear Senator Toomey:

It's me, again - the constituent who writes for the local Pittsburgh-based political blog, "2 Political Junkies."

We have to talk about the Trump=Putin Summit and your reaction to it. I applaud your break with the leader of your own party regarding his siding with Putin while doubting his own intelligence community. You wrote that Trump's:
...blindness to Putin’s hostile acts against the US and our allies—election meddling included—is very troubling.
But I don't think it goes nearly far enough.

Here's the question: Given that Donald Trump must have been briefed on "Putin's hostile acts" from the beginning of his administration, it simply can't be the case of, as you call it, "blindness" in his failure to respond to or even acknowledge them, can it? As a metaphor here, "blindness" is passive - that Trump simply cannot see what's going on. Won't you agree that he had to have made an decision in order to avoid acknowledging Putin's aggression - that Trump as a willful act chose not to see what's going on?

On a related topic: WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?

Thank you and I await your response.
And I will be posting whatever response I get from him or his office.

Tooney is part of Cops and Order GOPe. They do not like it when you criticize the Law Enforcement Caste. The elite of the Law Enforcement Caste is the FBI and IC.

The 80s called now they want their Foreign policy back.
