NYT: ‘Vibrant Washington Fears Trump Will Drain Its Culture’

Jason Horowitz writes in The New York Times that the Beltway elite fear that President-elect Donald Trump’s “drain the swamp” mentality will greatly reduce the posh culture of Washington, D.C., which expanded under Barack Obama’s presidency.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he was preparing a lawsuit against The New York Times, which published the accounts of two women who accused Trump of groping and kissing them years ago

Debbie Dooley: Once in a Lifetime Opportunity to Drain the D.C. Swamp

I have been politically active for 40 years and during this time I have watched as many Republicans made campaign promise after campaign promise as candidates, then once elected they made grand excuses on why they couldn’t keep their promises. Case in point, the GOP controlled the White House, Senate, and House from January of 2003 until January of 2007. We were disappointed to find that the Republicans passed no meaningful reforms that conservatives clamored for, but instead were mired in corruption scandals. K Street lobbyists had their hooks into elected Republican Leadership and prevented them from passing meaningful change. This was never more evident then when T.A.R.P, aka “Wall Street Bailout”, passed with the support of Democrats, President George W. Bush, and some Republicans in Congress. There were many Republicans opposed to TARP and fought it, but Republican Leadership beat the opposition back. Conservatives were infuriated by this and rightly so. That was one of the catalysts for the Tea Party Movement that was founded in February of 2009.
