Is the jig up for him?

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

It seems the cracks in the seem­ingly im­preg­nable wall pro­tect­ing the Trump im­age from ef­fec­tive scru­tiny are in­creas­ing in size. Are these cracks caused by the weight of guilt for the skulduggery and al­ter­na­tive facts per­pe­trated by Trump hench­men? Are the leaks of in­for­ma­tion about com­mu­ni­ca­tions be­tween the Trump cam­paign and Rus­sian in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cers about to be­come a real flood which may lead to a real in­ves­ti­ga­tion, with con­se­quences?

Why haven’t Sens. John Booz­man and Tom Cot­ton joined their col­leagues John McCain, Lind­sey Gra­ham and oth­ers in call­ing for dis­clo­sure of the na­ture of Trump’s re­la­tion­ship with Rus­sia and Vladimir Putin? This is not the time for par­ti­san foot-drag­ging, but the time for patriotic pur­suit of truth.

There is a dif­fer­ence be­tween truth and al­ter­na­tive fact, be­tween good pub­lic­ity and bad pub­lic­ity, and be­tween real news and fake news. It is high time that our politi­cians learned these dif­fer­ences, and why and how to choose be­tween them.
