Letter: Administration masters lying

Published 12:00 am Thursday, July 12, 2018

It should be apparent that we are not headed back on track to be the great country we once were. We are at war with our friends and neighbors, while playing footsie with dictators, kidnapping and incarcerating children, blackmailing members of the UN, and making our Justice System out to be the bad guys. The administration tries to make anyone not white, of the “right” religion, gender (including women), poor, or of poor health, into scapegoats.

Instead of draining the swamp, they have made it into a cesspool, and the country into a laughingstock. Our “Leaders” have become masters of lying, blaming others and denying administrative culpability.

The Republican House members have been grilling FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, demanding information about the Special Council investigation. They know it would be illegal for that information to be divulged. They want that information to help defend Trump and are insisting on a speedy end to the investigation.

If it is so important to know what the investigation has on Trump, their committee should have had the president appear before the House Committee instead of going wild with Rep. Devin Nunes’ diversion. If time is so important to finish this investigation, then tell Trump to meet Mueller and get the investigation finished.

Mr. Trump needs to “man up” to Special Council Mueller, who has given him ample opportunity to show proof that he is not guilty. Trump knows he has made a rat‘s nest of lies to cover up his mistakes and incompetence.

Even though Trump has followers who seem to like to be lied to, it is time to take his tribe and close it down. Let the real Republican Party regroup without Trump, Pence, McConnell, Ryan, etc.

Impeach Trump. Make America truly great again.
