The following meme is being circulated among liberals regarding Senator Joni Ernst, who also is a Lieutenant Colonel and Commanding Officer of the 185th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, Iowa Army National Guard:
The actual text of the statute is as follows:
29B.85 CONTEMPT TOWARD OFFICIALS. Any person subject to this code who uses contemptuous words against the president, the governor, or the governor of any other state, territory, commonwealth, or possession in which that person may be serving, shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.
The phrase “contemptuous words” is the key here. Here is a definition of the word “contemptuous”
Now, here is the text of the letter in graphic form. All contemptuous words as defined above, directed towards the President, are highlighted:
Liberals would have you believe the above letter contains “contemptuous words” against the President by simply sending a letter to an adversary explaining the Constitutional process of our nation.
Again, this isn’t about the truth, it’s about the narrative. Liberals intend to use lies, just like their belief this letter also violated the Logan Act, and even rose to the legal standard of treason. The wild hyperbole continues to circulate despite the fact that liberal pundits have dismissed all this legal nonsense.
Libs, it should tell you something if the President pretty much ignores your demands for fake charges.
