Letter to the Editor: Reign in Trump


We are in perilous times requiring bold courageous actions on the part of U.S. Rep. Barbara Comstock and U.S. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark R. Warner.

We must protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller at all costs. Failing to do so opens the door wide for the decline of our democracy and for Russia to take over. We must not be naive children about this. The cards are in play. Protect Mueller now.

We also need representatives who stand firm on health care and  Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy.

The signs are blatant that President Donald Trump has been turned. This must be confirmed or unquestionably refuted via Mueller’s investigation. The risk of a sitting president and his closest and incompetent family members being so enmeshed with Russian President Vladimir Putin is great, though perhaps not of their own original intent. Yet the tentacles of Putin reach far and wide. We must not be timid Democrats or hopeful Republicans. We must protect our motherland from invasion or yield our democracy to a foreign country. This must not happen.

Reign in Trump. Put up safeguards as intended by our forefathers.
