Russia has sponsored domestic terrorism. Anybody paying attention knows this. What would be the purpose of legislation directing the State Department to notify the Congress of this? Shouldn’t our president know this from his day to day contact with the State Department and his detailed daily intelligence briefings? Shouldn’t the Congress be able to get such information from the President? This, to me, is the equivalent of passing legislation that your waiter must inform their restaurant’s manager or accountant if you walk out of the restaurant without paying for your meal. This is fairly obvious. If the State Department, Intelligence Services and/or the President are negligent in dealing with any matter of clear import to our military, our population, or our country’s obligations- that is a matter for Impeachment or censorship; there is no need to legislate each and every possible numbskull interaction between executive branch departments and Congress. The trump’s inability or unwillingness to proactively act to protect our service people from foreign adversary bounties when there is solid (but not perfect) intelligence supporting this - is well, just inexcusable by any measure. We do not need legislation to prove this. The trump’s lack of judgement or any proactive action is not excused because there was no prior legislation that states that the State Department must inform either him or the Congress. Facts are, this legislation will not keep the trump and his sycophants from ignoring it, and for a normal president, this legislation would never be needed in the first place!
