Did Johnny Isakson Die, or Has He Just Retired in Place?

Johnny Isakson seems to have abandoned any concept of serving the interests of his constituents, beyond tapping the federal pork barrel to benefit whatever special interests feed from the federal trough. Isakson’s Republican Administration is in near total melt down as Trump’s criminality, chaos, ineptness, incompetence, and immorality produce their inevitable consequences. Trump and his Republicans are waging war against American democracy itself.

And where is Senator Johnny Isakson in all this? Nowhere to be seen nor heard, as he maintains his unwavering support for Trump as president. Below is just a selective choice of about two days worth of headlines on critical issues that Isakson has said not a word about. There is nothing on Isakson’s web page about any of this. Zero. Zilch. Of course, his web page also says nothing about Michael Flynn, Michael Cohen, Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, Roger Stone, or Robert Mueller, either.

New report on Russian disinformation, prepared for the Senate, shows the operation’s scale and sweep

A report prepared for the Senate that provides the most sweeping analysis yet of Russia’s disinformation campaign around the 2016 election found the operation used every major social media platform to deliver words, images and videos tailored to voters’ interests to help elect President Trump — and worked even harder to support him while in office.

(IndieDems note: Trump and Isakson have done virtually nothing to punish Putin for his acts or to strengthen America’s defenses against Russia’s continuing onslaught).

Calling Michael Cohen a ‘Rat,’ Trump brings ‘American underworld’ lingo to the White House

The Dictionary of the American Underworld Lingo defines “rat” as someone who “secretly aids the police to apprehend criminals.” In other words, as someone who helps the good guys destroy the bad guys. Those good guys are the ones Donald Trump and Johnny Isakson don’t like.

With a Vocabulary From ‘Goodfellas,’ Trump Evokes His Native New York

As he faces mushrooming legal problems, the President evokes a place replete with shady businessmen and mob-linked politicians, raffish types with unscrupulous methods and uncertain loyalties.  

Here’s another reason Donald Trump and Johnny Isakson are comfortable with pure sleaze:

As the Trumps Dodged Taxes, Their Tenants Paid a Price

“the future president and his siblings set up a phony business to pad the cost of nearly everything their father, the legendary builder Fred C. Trump, purchased for his buildings. The Trump children split that extra money. Padding the invoices had a secondary benefit for the Trumps, allowing them to inflate rent increases on their father’s rent-regulated apartments.”

And on and on it goes—along with Isakson’s near total dereliction of duty.
