via daily kos:
Jefferson Sessions wouldn’t hesitate at such a pledge, but he should be asked about it. So should every single other person Trump has appointed or nominated.
Is the Justice Department loyal to the law, or to Trump?
Is Homeland Security protecting the nation, or the Don?
Was Neil Gorsuch asked to make such a pledge before taking a chair on the Supreme Court?
Every single member of the Trump administration should have to sit in front of the Congress and answer the question:
Did you make, or were you asked to make, any pledge of loyalty to Donald Trump?
Donald Trump was originally scheduled to visit the FBI office today. That’s been cancelled. Which is too bad. There were probably people there with a few things to say to the Don.
