Perverted Justice

Editor:

Incredible! Unbelievable! Unconscionable! Unconstitutional!

We are at a critical crossroads in our country where the rule of law in the United States is that if you are a Trump supporter you can commit any crime your heart desires, and Trump will say you should not be investigated because you’re a “good guy” because it will jeopardize Republicans’ chances in the mid-term elections.

Repeatedly trying to pervert the Department of Justice into a weapon to go after his adversaries, and now shamelessly complaining that the department should protect his political allies to maintain his majority in the mid-terms, is nothing short of an all-out assault on the rule of law.

And yet, in another astonishing and flagrant abuse of power, Trump seeks to bend the DOJ to his personal will, signaling his utter contempt for an institution that is essential to the rule of law. Trump’s statements patently demonstrate that he has no intention of keeping his oath of office. He is not a leader to unite the republic, but rather a demagogue intent to divide and conquer.

Every law-abiding citizen of this great United States of America should be frightened where Trump is taking our country. This is the United States of America, not Russia, and certainly not the United States of Trump.

Democracy is more powerful than autocracy and it’s coming for Donald Trump, so he’s desperately pushing back.

Sooner or later, every dog gets his day.
