John Cornyn on Portland

“. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ”    (Senator John Cornyn [R-Texas])

“As the White House dug in on plans to deploy federal agents to Portland and other U.S. cities, few of President Donald Trump’s allies in Texas rose to his defense amid a Democratic uproar over ‘secret police. . . . Sen. John Cornyn, who is seeking a fourth term in November, declined to comment on Trump’s actions.”

“Sen. John Cornyn remains silent, just as he has on the president’s failure to stand up to the Russian bounty on American troops in Afghanistan, just as he has on defending the rule of law, just as he has on upholding his oath of office.”
Thomas E. Turpin, Letter to the Editor, Dallas Morning News, July 25, 2020

“Congress shall make no law respecting . . .  the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

I 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.”
