Letter: What’s the truth about Trump?

Republican senators do not want us to know the truth about President Donald Trump. So, they approved a Trump supporter who also disliked Mueller’s investigation of Trump to be attorney general, William Barr.

Barr passed judgment on a two-year investigation in one weekend — 400 pages into four pages. Barr will not release the complete, unredacted Mueller report to Congress of the citizens of the United States.

What is Barr afraid of? The truth? Obstruction of justice? How will his children, their children and future Barrs feel when the complete Mueller report is released?

Here is what we know:

• The government hired Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Mueller hired his staff for a two-year investigation with about 400 pages of findings.

• Trump appointed Barr as attorney general. The “I don’t want the truth to come out” politicians approve of Barr, knowing that Barr didn’t approve of the Mueller investigation.

• Barr comes back with a four-page finding of Mueller’s staff’s 400-page report.

• Barr will not release the whole, unredacted, 400-page Mueller report to Congress or the citizens of the United States of America.

We, the taxpayers, paid for the findings of Mueller and his staff as well as Barr.

Meanwhile, Trump this week told someone to break the law and “I’ll pardon you.”

Now for the Supreme Court. We pay them also. Two of them were appointed by Trump. Who will they support — Trump or the constitution they swore to uphold?

A while back, Trump complained about countries not paying their share to the United Nations? What about Trump? What about his taxes to the U.S.A.?
