With all that is going on in Washington D.C.—cabinet confirmations, a Supreme Court nomination, leaks, Russia, whatever is up with Kellyanne Conway—Charles Grassley, the senior Senator from Iowa, recently sent out this “in case you missed it” email:
Do you see the headline? It reads “Grassley wise to push for farmers’ access to overseas markets.” Yep, the senior Senator from Iowa decides that the most important communication he can make with his constituents is about pushing for access to foreign markets for agricultural commodities.
Try and get him to comment on Trump’s potential conflicts of interest? No dice. Try to get him to comment on Trump’s potential ties to Russia? No dice.
Thanks for all the hard work Senator Grassley. When is your next open meeting with constituents happening? I think there are some people who want to ask you a few questions about issues other than access to foreign markets.
