What exactly is going on in Washington DC these days?
You have a movement since Donald Trump was elected and promised to “drain the swamp.” While many scoffed at the thought of being able to pull off something like that, let’s look at what is actually happening since last January.
You have a few career law men at the FBI stepping down. We have 26 Republican and nine Democratic politicians deciding not to run for re-election. Names like Bob Corker, Orrin Hatch and Al Franken in the Senate. Trey Gowdy, Darrell Issa and John Conyers in the House that are pulling at as well.
Last summer we saw the shooting of Rep. Steve Scalise and other Republican members on a softball field in Virginia.
And now on Wednesday we have an Amtrak train crashing into a large dump truck that was sitting on the tracks at a crossing in rural West Virginia.
The train was carrying around 300 politicians, aides and their family members — including Rep. Paul Ryan, The politicians were on their way for a Republican retreat at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia.
Both President Trump and veep Mike Pence are both scheduled to speak at the retreat.
The Greenbrier is a famous resort with a checkered past. It was used to house foreign citizens during the outbreak of WWII. It also plays a role in the continuation of government. There are reportedly underground bunkers large enough with up-to-date technology to run the government should Washington come under attack.
Now were the Republican House members retreating to The Greenbrier as the FISA abuse memo is about to be released?
It’s a intriguing thought, since it somewhat explains why the train came under attack from the dump truck, yet no one was injured on the train.
