【華盛頓特區訊】2017年3月7日星期二,聯邦眾議員Al Green發表以下聲明:

“ 對總統歐巴馬的竊聽莫須有指控,比起分散注意力的譴責,有的是更多的恐懼和恐嚇。這荒謬無意義的陷害歐巴馬清楚傳達一個訊息,就是任何總統都可以(在沒有根據可信度的證據下)百分之百蠻橫霸凌傷害任何人。我們總統卑鄙狹窄的行為,會導致不只那些立法者停止和暫停他的法案。這些指控也會讓這些立法和行政人員對總統不是尊敬,只有擔憂。恐懼和恐嚇只會損害影響良好的行政法令和有意義的法條。用這種百分之百蠻橫不講理的總統「大好講壇」在一個國家是司空見慣。然而,在擁有一位肆無忌憚用終極蠻橫霸凌方式總統的國家是沒有地位的,因此,我們要思考一個嚴謹的問題:我們現在是目睹一位百分百零道理的總統在霸凌他人,還是一位有惡霸總統擁有這樣的講壇權利?當我們害怕擔憂自己的總統不會有更好的民主產生,反而是民主的落後。目前,雖然這些被控罪名表面上指向歐巴馬總統,但若是這種愚蠢的騙局成功,實際受害者會是美國民主。”

Trumped-Up Charges Won’t Make America Great

(Washington, DC)–On Tuesday, March 7, 2017, Congressman Al Green (TX-09) released the following statement:

“Trumped-up wiretapping charges against President Obama are more about fear and intimidation than distractive accusations. This nonsensical effort to frame President Obama sends a very clear message to all that our President can and will (without presenting necessary credible evidence) use the bully pulpit to harm anyone. Our President’s mean-spirited behavior will cause persons with legitimate critiques of his actions to not only pause but also cease and desist. These accusations will cause some legislators and administrators to act out of fear of the President rather than respect for the President. Fear and intimidation may trump good administration and meaningful legislation.  The use of the presidential bully pulpit is commonplace in a great nation. However, to have a President who is an unbridled bully using the ultimate pulpit has no place in our great nation. Hence, we must answer the critical question: Are we witnessing a President using the bully pulpit or a President who is a bully with a pulpit? While fear of our President won’t engender a better democracy, it will likely engender less democracy. Lastly, although the ostensible target of these trumped-up charges is President Obama, the actual victim will be American democracy should this ignoble charade succeed.”
