You cant blame Cotton. It was a deal that Burr alone made with Warner to end the investigation.
I will absolutely blame Tom Cotton. He swore an oath to protect the Constitution. Don Jr. is being abused again and Cotton can’t be bothered to sound the alarm on it.
Mueller and his angry Democrats have violated it numerous times. An old man (Manafort) sits in solitary for the crime of supporting POTUS. Papadopoulos wife lost her baby after an all day interrogation by Mueller’s FBI thugs.
And where has Tom Cotton been on such police state tactics? AWOL.
Burr is chairman and made the deal. Cotton didn’t have a say.
You can blame McConnell for not kicking Burr out of the chairmanship. That would be fair.
