Strange being in our nation’s capital today.
Preparations are being made for a candidate that I voted against.
Voted against with passion.
I kick myself because I could have done more.
I could have paid more attention.
I could have worked for his opponent.
I could have done a lot more.
Yet, here we are.
In about six weeks, a demagogue will assume the Presidency.
A man who built his campaign on divisiveness.
On waging war against “the other.”
A man who received 2.5 million less votes than his opponent.
A man who has absolutely no clue as to how to run a country.
A buffoon. A delusional, conspiratorial buffoon.
But I don’t have a time machine.
I can’t go back and do more for his opponent.
All I have is our new reality.
So I came to the District of Columbia for the future.
For I anticipate filing lawsuits here to keep the government accountable.
To challenge the coming abuses of power, as well as those that are already occurring.
When I was sworn in today, I promised again to defend the Constitution.
That is what we do when we hold Presidents, bureaucrats and Congress accountable.
We defend the Constitution.
I fear we are going to be very busy.
