Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) said on Tuesday that she is concerned that President Trump is trying to “shut down every possible branch of government but the presidency.” Basically, she thinks he is going to become a tyrant after Trump tweeted about the FBI and MSNBC, reports Town Hall.


Speier argued that Trump’s actions and conduct towards the FBI recently and the news media’s isthat of “someone who could become a tyrant.”

MSNBC’s Katy Tur asked Speier specifically if she had concerns about potential witness tampering by Trump.

“I am concerned that the president of the United States is systematically trying to shut down every possible branch of government but the presidency,” Speier replied. “So you got him attacking the judiciary, you have him attacking the CIA, you have him attacking the Department of Justice, the FBI. I mean this is the conduct of someone who could become a tyrant if we don’t step in and speak out against him.”

“I think he is being so un-presidential,” she added, “and he is undermining the very foundation of this country and the institutions that we hold so dear and that are protected in the Constitution of the United States.”

Speier kept up the comparisons between Trump and past tyrants when on Twitter she compared Trump’s behavior to that of Lenin and Stalin from the Soviet Union.

Maybe Speier should have taken a closer look at her own President last year when he virtually took any control the average American citizen had with regards to healthcare, and tell me those aren’t the actions of a tyrant. Typical Democratic hypocrisy.

    Rep. Speier needs to go back to elementary school. civics class The DOJ and the FBI are under the Executive Branch, the branch the president controls. Seeking to right possible wrong doing within his own branch of government is perfectly within the purview of the president and does not indicate any attempt to usurp the powers of the other two. Sheesh, she is either mightily uninformed of just out and out lying.

        Would really like to see that. I get so frustrated with all of the lies. As a registered Dem, I get lots of emails from them and tell them they are lying. So, trying to do my part (not counting the years I served on active duty). Thanks for all of you for also trying to keep others straight and accountable; sadly I am afraid that many do not read our post only their lies. I speak often on the lies, the twist to law, and the thieves (the Clintons stole from the White House) and ask how can you support those actions and people. No surprise I can not even get an answer from my own party – so they can not or choose not to answer those within the party. Sad. So I will continue to support the person not the party, stay a registered Democrat and speak out against what they are doing to all of us..

    • Caring Angel

      That is what I noticed too. There are three branches of government and none of them are the CIA or the Department of Justice. She did get in the judiciary which is a branch of government, but it is filled with judges who think the Constitution is a “living document” meaning it can change its meaning when they want it to.

    Well Jackie, look at who’s calling the kettle black. How many military generals were forced out of 0bummer’s administration? Was he afraid they wouldn’t accept his tyranny? 0bummer tried to overload every part of our government with interference into the best economic system the world has ever seen, with health care being the best example. Due to lack of immigration control, he had hoped to see that American taxpayers are responsible for everyone coming into the country. He borrowed and doubled our national debt, so that the future for people that were conscientious enough to try to save for their future, found that their savings no longer can begin to keep up with inflation. He let’s certain groups burn the cities down, while saying that the law abiding have to organize and rebuild the areas for them. He left countless numbers of criminals out of prison, so that he could pass new gun laws that would turn law abiding citizens into felons and imprison them for not relinquishing their personal property. He was always quick to defend some violent thug, but was sure to offend any police for their actions. The previous eight years of a tyrant bent on becoming the Secretary General of the United Nations to impose a new Communism on a people that wouldn’t allow his tyranny legally, is what finally brought on the election of President Trump. The people have had it with your parties bulls**t, and couldn’t care less about your political correctness. We now have a president that leads and argues for ALL of the American people. Your welcome to your thoughts, and so are the rest of us. We just so happen to believe in free enterprise, and not bigger government control for government’s sake only!

    • FedUP15232

      Pretty good summary. But you left out the blatantly treasonous activity. Things like ensuring that Iran gets nuclear weapons. Providing Iran hundreds of billions in cold, hard cash to fund terrorism, and colluding with Clinton to sell the Russians 20% of our uranium supply.

      • Mark V

        Kudos to John and FedUP15232 for an excellent summary. I think like many people in her party , she(Speier) needs a psych consult.

      • jagragg

        You forgot to mention another traitorous act, which makes the top 5 in my book: The suppression of the drug trade & money laundering by Hezbollah, in order to appease Iran to make the nuclear deal happen. How many Americans directly died in your own streets because of this?

      • Clipper454

        Correct!

      • Clipper454

        Absolutely! Right on, John & FedUp.

      I still wonder what he did with our money when he
      doubled the National Debt?

      • John

        Audit the banks, they wound up with bailouts AND all the properties they repossessed. He needed them on his side to wrestle the people into the NWO communism.

  • 46patrick46

    We had a mulatto dictator for 8 years and Jackie never seemed to notice. The donkey eared dictator engineered a take over of all federal agencies with his henchmen and corrupted the FBI, DOJ, IRS, NSA, CIA, and packed the federal judiciary with Marxist comrades to protect his unconstitutional executive orders. His adoring sycophants in the Press never reported his abuses of power to the American people.

    Donkey face orchestrated the spying on team Trump by the intelligence community in an endeavor to mount a Coup against Trump. Yet Jackie never opened her mouth. She is a Marxist stooge hypocrite.

    Trump is trying to DRAIN the SWAMP of those CORRUPT politicians that do their OWN thing with NO reguard to what was good for the American people,
    Our BAD government NEEDS a HUGE makeover to get RID of those who seem to just DO WHATEVER they want when they want.

    • msgdiane

      You forgot one, God. They only use the Bible to try and twist what they wish to preach. So they preach their love for the Constitution, our country, its institutions, and add God. All of them are fare game when they want to “tug” at weaker hearts, that really do want to believe them.

    Jackie, if you would get off your democratic line and look around, you would find that the FBI and DOJ are under the Executive Branch. Furthermore, an honest look at all the “Departments of the Government” would show you that many of these agencies at least duplicate the same services. Trying to lessen some of the duties of these departments is not an act of tyranny, but an attempt to make them act more efficiently without the bloated cost. An if you were truly honest with yourself, you would admit that our government is far to bloated and many of the departments and agencies are not necessary.

    • msgdiane

      I know that their a few (though very few) that are not effected by the water. However, I thought California was going to “withdraw” from the Union; which means they should have nothing to say about our government anyway. I guess it is the same lie that so many said (ie: Barbara Striesand, Whoopi, etc. that threatened to leave when Former President Bush was elected – they did not leave ;-( )

      • Ed Lamaster

        How about if California and Texas make a deal: Pay for all the conservatives to come to Texas and send the Marxists to California? Let’s see which state does a better job of improving life for everyone.

      Lordy, I’m so glad we moved away from Cali before
      I had a chance to become one of them. In fact, I
      believe most all my relatives left Calif. over the years.

      At one time, many years ago, it was a wonderful State.

    The fact that people like this extremely ignorant woman can be elected to the government of the most powerful country in the world is what scares me. All Democrat politicians are tools, but the ones from Kommiefornia are “extremely dull tools”.
